Installation and playing the game.
You need the wineloc program to run the game, to emulate the japanese version of Windows XP, using the adequate setting in the command line.
That's means: "wineloc -l ja_JP MainSystem.EXE", in the game's root directory.
If you try to run the game without the locale utility the game will crash after the introductory phase, like a real non-japanese Windows machine!
For more informations and issues about the game, read the document linked below:
What does not
The game don't run on old wine versions, prior to 1.1.2.
Even with wine greater to 1.1.3, you need wineloc, which is a Linux's native replacement of MIcrosoft's AppLocale, but is just a command line application.
What was not tested
Playing all the game, and collect all CG's.
