Crossver games 7.1.0 and Linux = LOVE

I'm basing my current evaluation of CoH on my previous experience with 7.0.0, obviously.

Cursor : I HAVE a cursor ! w00t ! Curiously, it's striped and deformed... but it's working - I'll try to get a screenshot of it. I get the same effect with any cursor-like behavior (e.g. dragging an enhancement or inspiration to another player of to the market).
Sound : working perfectly. I never got around to check if sound worked in CoH, considering that I mostly play without sound, but it's working perfectly.
Gamma : working A-OK !
Player pictures and I.D. screen: working, too !
Costume selection : still crashes the game. The partially good nows is that now it does not crash my whole system.
Input : no need to press Enter twice to get into chat, although I still need to press Espace to get the focus out of the chat box after sending a message. Also, the extremely annoying mouse input bug seems to be gone.

Overall, I'm VERY impressed in this new version. Rating goes back to silver for me !

Side note : the /reload_gfx command crashed my client when I tried using it.

Interesting.. Others have reported crashing on costume selection as well, but I've never experienced that issue.

Let me clarify my previous statements on keyboard input: hitting enter once does bring focus to the input box, but the first keypress following that, no matter what it is, is lost.

For mouse.. Are you running full screen, or windowed? I've not really had time to try CoH fullscreen to see if my mouse problems are gone there, but they definitely still persist for me in a window.

Well I might've too hasty in my posting... the input bugs - keybaord and mouse - are still present. I guess I didn't test it much, heh.

As for the costumes, as I've mentioned in the Tips and Tricks section, there's an easy way to change costumes without the selection window for those like me who cannot access it.
