Installation works throught Sony's Station Launcher.
Third person is working
Battles are working
Open sea is working
What does not
Sound is OK but not perfect.
Even if you can quit the game normaly, you'll be prompted to fill a crash report at the character selection screen.
Some toolbar shortcuts are not working : you can bind them but not use them (you can still use the mouse to click on the icon)
What was not tested
1- Go to Sony's Station login and activate Pirates of Burning See (which is now free). 2- winetricks vcrun2005 msxml3 msxml2 d3dx9 corefonts physx 3- Install the Station Launcher (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=19166) 4- Start the Station Launcher and login. Click on PotBS, to install the game. 5- The tricky part is here, if you start the game now, it would crash (out of memory). You need to download the following application "http://www.ntcore.com/4gb_patch.php". 6- unzip it and copy it's content in the PotBS folder. 7- Open a terminal, go the PotBS folder and type "wine 4gb_patch.exe PotBS.exe" 8- Go back to the Launcher and start the game. When you be in the game for the first time, you'll see nothing except NPC's name. Hit escape, go to the video option and activate the shader. You are now ready to play. Important thing regarding step 7. At each startup, the Station Launcher will do a scanning and replace the modified PoTBS.exe by the original. You will need to repeat step 7 before pressing "Launch Game". Please understand that modifying the PotBS.exe is likely to be forbiden by the EULA (even if it's for a good cause). Doing step 7 could result to have your PotBS or your Sony accounts banned.
