Installation, login, character creation, gameplay, audio (OSS), fullscreen
Performance is fine, and the game is totally playable.
What does not
Resolutions higher than 640x480, windowed mode.
Higher res ends up with partial distorted content displayed in a 640x480 section of the screen.
Tried with/without virtual desktop and 'allow window manager to control windows', set X native resolution and color depth to match in-game settings, didn't make any difference.
What was not tested
Normal official client - this is the client from the AnimaRO private server.
This is without any native MFC and OLE dlls. There may have been others lying around that I missed. Graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500, driver version 97.55. Audio using OSS driver. Wine is set to emulate XP (install was accidentally done in 98 mode).

You need vcrun2008 for gameplay work. If you execute this without vcrun2008, your instalation can be corrupt (the cause is unknow).
(This does not apply to openpatcher).
Install wine gecko package (the package name varies according with your distribution). you can optionally install ie6 with winetricks instead of wine gecko package. Both work well.
Download this file and add to wine registry:
$ regedit boost.reg
(The performance gain is high.)
