Installation and Running the game.
This japanese game only run in a japanese version of Windows, so to fix this in Wine, you'll need to install the Wineloc loader, otherwise the game will crash just after a couple of clicks. (This also will happen in a real Windows copy that was non-japanese!)
To play, I add a shortcut with the following command:
wineloc -l ja_JP /home/arucard/.wine/drive_c/Programs/VividColor/SilverChaos/MainSystem.exe
And just works!
What does not
Prior to Wine 1.1.5, that fixed a critical bug in quartz.dll that would crash when a character wants to speak something.
Actually, nothing to do!
What was not tested
Finish the game
To install Wineloc, you will need to follow this instruction given in this Ubuntu's forum: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=383628 However, you can skip the Step 2 related to ie4linux.
