* NPCs and Quests work perfectly without crashing or closing the game. - game.exe patcher http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UAVKIP5E is required to bypass gameguard. - The extra DLLs HowTo below increases performance. * This is the smoothest play I've gotten out of Shaiya on linux yet. * Tested in Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10 and Xubuntu 8.04, 8.10 (all of which are 32-bit) Note: Depending on your hardware, you may lag in towns when visual distance is set to "High".
