Any idea? I just tried to run the launcher with wine 1.5.8, and got the same error.

Hi guys, i bring news.

If you guys set a virtual desktop in wine (1000 x 614 magic numbers), we will be able to see launcher fine, but play the game in that resolution is terrible. Anyway, im trying to find a better solution.

Good luck!!!

Thx for the reports, I will check this as soon as possible and see if I can fix this issue.

Once you get past the launcher, you should be able to change your resolution in the game to what you want it to be, and it will resize the virtual desktop for you.
