Installing the game, patching, launching the game from the directory. Playing both in and out of WoE on IRO Loki. Sound worked flawlessly
What does not
Dynamic text boxes: as you can see in many screenshots, you can see through the text to the background. Casting Circles and Spell effects: Causes a echo to appear at the corners, or you can see the box used to outline some of the other affects such as High Priests assumptio. Speed: Seems to run at about 80% the speed of win32. Items window: sometimes there will be random numbers in the end, such as a 3 already being filled on each slot, this holds true especially when switch equipment or using storage The Patch client: Will not load game news.
What was not tested
Did have to find some pretty specific versions of the dlls. It didn't like half that I downloaded, but did finally work.

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.)
