What does not
What was not tested
The program will display an error message before starting that it is not installed in the default directory. As far as I know, this is because Wine cannot create a folder in Ubuntu with Japanese characters correctly. This will not affect game-play at all.

By default, Wine will not play the intro movie in-game. This is due to the fact that it uses ActiveMovie and certain DLL files to play the movie. The process is long, but will work with the stable version of Wine. This method has not been tested with the latest unstable version, so proceed with caution.
NOTE - This may affect other applications that use ActiveMovie, but may hinder overall performance, so before starting, open the Wine configuration screen and add the application in question to the list in the Applications tab. This is important to do so that you do not modify the default settings of Wine in the process.
To my knowledge, the following DLL files are required:
These and other files should be in the ActiveMovie installation file. Search for amov4ie.exe and install it using Wine.
In the system.ini file of your Windows directory in Wine, change the following line to the bolded:
Save and open the Wine configuation window. Click on the "Libraries" tab and add "amstream" and "quartz" to the list of existing overrides. Click on "Edit" for each of them, and change the load order to "Native, then Builtin". Click "Apply" and exit the program.
Load up Tomoyo After, start a new game, and after the prelude the intro movie should play.
NOTE - One problem with this method is that the quality of the movie is poor when compared to playing it in a media player such as mplayer, VLC, etc. If anyone else has better methods to playing in-game movies in this or any other game, feel free to post a comment.
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.
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:
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:
Save the text file, exit the editor, and then type in locale-gen in the terminal.
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.
