  • Switching from fullscreen to window size works.
  • Changing the settings such as text selection, sound volume, and auto mode speed works properly.
  • Music works if Orange disc is inserted.
  • Loading and saving works properly.

Additional Comments

When installing AIR, it is recommended to use the LC_ALL=ja_JP wine command. When AIR is first loaded, you must select a font if you want the Japanese words to be displayed during the game. Use the right-click menu and look for the 10th option. You'll be able to select a font there.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO: Display Japanese characters

Japanese applications in general have certain Japanese words that will not display properly out of the box with Wine. In order to be able to view the Japanese characters that don't work, you must have Wine call out the Japanese locales on your computer. Go to a terminal and type in "LC_ALL=ja_JP wine" and then the path to your program. That is usually all it takes to make the Japanese characters work properly.

However, even with this method, the program may not still display the words correctly. That means that your computer probably does not have the proper locales enabled, so the results will be the same. Here are instructions on how to fix that for Ubuntu and Arch Linux.

In Ubuntu 8.04:

Go to a terminal and type in "sudo [insert text program here] /var/lib/locales/supported.d/ja". It should be a new file since there isn't a file called "ja" yet. Type in the following entries:

ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8

Save the file, and type in this command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

In Arch Linux:

Go to your perferred terminal and login as root:

su - (enter your password when it tells you to)

Use your text editor to edit the following file:

nano (or your preferred text editor) /etc/locale.gen

Look for these two entries and uncomment them:

ja_JP.UTF-8 UTF-8

Save the text file, exit the editor, and then type in locale-gen in the terminal.

Try using the "LC_ALL=ja_JP wine" method. It should work this time. If it still doesn't work, you may not have the fonts that Wine needs to correctly display the Japanese characters.

Please note that this HOWTO is designed for Ubuntu 8.04 and Arch Linux. Other distributions may have slightly different methods.
HOWTO: Can't find GAMEEXE.INI error

If you use the LC_ALL=ja_JP wine command and simply drag the AVG3217M.exe file  to the terminal, AIR will output an error in Japanese saying that GAMEEXE.INI cannot be found. To fix this problem, simply type in this:

cd /home/[insert username here]/.wine/drive_c/AIR [the directory where AIR is installed]

The terminal will then take you to the directory where AIR is installed. From there, you can use the command like this:

LC_ALL=ja_JP wine AVG3217M.exe

The game will run as normal with Japanese character working.

So far, this applies to the limited and regular editions of AIR. The standard edition has not been tested.
