You probably want to ask in the Transgaming forums to be honest.

And er, "Downloaded City of Heroes"...?

I had the same problem. I had to change the shortcut to CohUpdater.EU.exe

Run cedega, right click CoH shortcut > Edit Properties, fix Path to Program.
My path now is "/home/hellblade/.cedega/City of Villains/c_drive/Program Files/City of Heroes/CohUpdater.EU.exe"

But that was for the European client (servers)

thanks. tryed it but it did nothing happend when I changed the path. tryed to use US instead of EU.
not sure if that is right but not playing on the europe client.

Anyone got this to work on Ubuntu 7.10 with Cedega 6.X and the newest issue #11 of City of Heroes?

I keep Windows XP around to play this game and it's tiresome to reboot all the time to switch back and forth...

Looks like there's some troubles on the Cedega forum (http://www.cedega.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=49) but the threads are mostly old and I don't know how many actually play COH on Linux.
