Believe it or not, I play Runescape. I find the game to be interesting.

Out of my curiosity, I found that there is a way to play the game in an executable file. However, there was no Linux download for this type of file, so I installed it with Wine, and it seemed to work fine.

The game loads up perfectly fine, until it finds updates. When it finds updates, it stops at exactly 92% every time I try running it and I must force quit the application. Anyone else have this issue?

@BlueXRider: Are you sure? "Running third-party applications on Ubuntu" is listed in the "We welcome questions about:" listing on the page you linked to :) –  Sergey Apr 5 '12 at 4:59

Try following this (yes, its got some age to it; but the game hasn't changed much since then) tutorial, Runescape is of the same caliber as Minecraft; which both use Java JRE as a game engine. Ubuntu comes with a default install of Java, but you often need to fine-tune the settings in Wine or download 3rd party repositories, to get them to work.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  jrg Apr 5 '12 at 20:02
