Code:
su -
password:
yum -y install wine-core wine-tools
exit
winecfg
wine /path/to/GuildWars-installer
wine /path/to/GuildWars-main-exe
When running winecfg you should pay special attention to the devices tab (drives? I'm using spanish locale, so I'm not sure of the English term) and select autodetect so your tree is available to wine, uncheck the ALSA sound driver (games crash when using that) and check your graphics settings...

And see how it goes.

Here's a brief summary:
  • You need to install a wrapper program called wine which will allow you to run unmodified Windows binary programs on Linux.
  • You use the program to attempt and try to run the Windows binary, in this case Guild Wars, on your Linux machine.
  • But you have to install the game first. And wine implements a series of Windows mechanisms and APIs (DirectX included) so the programs can be executed, this include also the registry and reading from it.
  • Yoiu will have to first test with the "bare bones" (AKA console, CLI) and if all works you may simply create a launcher (shortcut) to start the game from the GUI.

If you could play guild wars, via, then on the guild wars box it would say compatible - windows- macintosh-linux, the day they support it, I will format my drive and spend a day off mapping.
