    Royal Quest is a massive multi-player Online Role Playing Game that is free to play. Using a similar business model as other RPG's you can create your own character from 4 classes and explore Aura completing quests, teaming up with other players. Level up skills, obtain loot from enemies and join guilds.

    When Steam is done installing the login screen will pop up. You probably won't see any text because there is a font bug.

    General Tab
    Arguments: -no-dwrite -no-cef-sandbox
    This fixes the missing font and store problem
    royal32.png

    Note: -no-dwrite only works if you launch Steam from PlayOnLinux. Steam is automatically set to launch when Windows starts, which means if you do a "Windows Reboot" from the Wine tab -no-dwrite won't execute. Just close Steam and try again.

    Rule of Thumb:
    High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
    Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates

    Conclusion:
    Royal Quest runs beautifully with my GeForce 550 Ti. I maxed almost everything in the graphics menu. The textures and animations are very smooth and crisp. I have not experienced any problems or gliches. The game starts out pretty slow and you have to do many meaningless chores for NCP's, but later there should be some great dungeons and bosses.
    [edit]
    After leveling up two characters to level 11, I have experienced a random crash here and there. Just kill rqmain.exe in the system monitor and launch again. This crash does not affect your characters skills, specs, quests, or location.
