Game installed and updated OK.
What does not
GameGuard does not work and so the game will not run. q.v. Wine bug #3952.
Jareel's GameGuard fix is ineffective to patch Shaiya, at least on Macintosh computers. See "Extra Comments" below.
Two error messages are issued regarding GameGuard.
1) Titled "Themida" and reads: "Cannot open Oreans.vxd driver. Make sure that Oreans.vxd is not open by another program."
2) Titled "GameGuard Error : 114" and reads: "Initialization error of GameGuard. Please reboot and try again, or close all unnecessary programs and execute."
What was not tested
Test done with Wine v1.1.29 running on a Macbook with Mac OS X "Leopard". Tech specs are Intel Core 2 Duo @2.0 GHz, 2GB RAM, nVidia Geforce 9400M GPU. Jareel's GameGuard-fix binaries do not run on Macintosh (maybe Linux binaries). I recompiled the included source code with GCC and then the patch worked. Patch output suggested everything is fine. However, GameGuard errors persist and the game cannot be run. This GameGuard problem may be confined to running Shaiya via Wine on a Macintosh. A google search for information on the Oreans.vxd driver error consistently shows that other GameGuard protected games (notably Maplestory) will not run on a Macintosh via Crossover, and generates the same errors I encountered.

You may you need some extra dll files; get winetricks and install d3dx9.
To skip the Launcher run:
wine game.exe start game
