Installing, Patching, Running the game (so far only in "Normal Mode"; check comments for updates if any).
What does not
Nothing ( after several hours of gameplay), except water reflection.
-You can turn on "Water-reflection effect" at the Launcher, but nothing changes in-game.
-The In-Game selection of the "Water-reflection effect" option doesn't remain on (the check mark disappears next time you go to the In-Game Options), not that it changes anything either.
What was not tested
*All skills (even for just one class).
*Very extended gameplay (leveling to max).
No modifications needed. Runs as-is (WITHOUT my prior crackmeup script that disables GameGuard; It doesn't work anymore anyway. -> The makers of Shaiya now disabled GameGuard, as if it was any good anyway, so no changes are needed. I personally didn't even need to install any of the dlls or wine tricks listed below.

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