Game Guard is no longer part of Shaiya. All game functions work well with only minor slow down or "lag".
Every aspect of the game was tested, from using quick keys, to pvp, npc dialog, running, walking, other actions, quests, text, options, updates and downloads, full screen, windowed mode, and everything else.
Parties do slow down performance and lag is an issue, but if you do a lot of solo work, then it's not so much an issue.

Everything I could think of was tested and worked fine.

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