1. Download the key

wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key
sudo apt-key add Release.key && sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/'

2. Update your repos

sudo apt update

3. Install Wine 3.0

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable

4. Download the latest winetricks: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks -O ~/bin/winetricks

5. Create the WINE Prefix.

wine wineboot

6. Neocron needs the Visual Studio 2015 runtimes. Lets install those now.

winetricks vcrun2015

7. Of course, we'll also need to install DirectX.

winetricks d3dx9 quartz

8. Set Windows version to Windows 7

winetricks win7

9. Download and run the Neocron Installer from neocron.org. Run the Launcher via wine and it should patch as normal.

Once these actions are performed, you should have a playable Neocron on Linux.
