The usual gameplay is fully working with Gracia Part 2 NA client.
What does not
Keyboard security driver cannot be loaded (error message can be safely ignored) Water textures (sea, waterfalls) are sometimes used as floor (grass) , when you are near the water source. Trees can be sometimes seen through the hills (transparent texturing), sometimes you can see thru the walls (NPC inside buildings or mobs) Taking a screenshot with printscreen button makes the game crash. The game does not start unless Option.ini has L2Shader=True , getting DirectX runtime bug, however this option can be disabled in game in order to get better FPS and less graphic artefacts (later will need to set that option True again, to start the game) DirectX runtime error can appear too when starting game in fullscreen or in a window, I use "Emulate Virtual desktop" option and run game "fullscreen" , that actually appear as a window. Switching skill panels with ALT+Fn can be catched by Window Manager, will need to disable or remap keyboard bindings, otherwise switch skill panels with mouse
What was not tested
Everything has been tested. I run my own private server and play a lot. Game Installation has not been tested, however the Updater runs fine and i was able to upgrade an older installation to newer chronicles.
I set bronze rating because the game needs special things for gameplay 1) unable to play on official, only private servers 2) need a modified client with removed protections, which is against the game client EULA.

If playing with an ATI graphics card, there will be some settings that won't work.
Under certain circumstances, system-freezes with no apparent reason can happen.
This method is not that hard but requires -some- knowledge.
What you will need:
Internet, a Linux with installed VGA drivers, a private server with gameguard check disabled (like RaidFight), Patience.
