What does not
What was not tested
Extended Play of the Game (will edit/submit new tests once I've done so).
This game requires a Japanese locale, even during installation or with an English Patch installed. Run all wine calls like
WINEPREFIX=<wherever-Your-prefix-is> LC_ALL="jp_JP.UTF-8" winecfg
to achieve this without changing Your global locale config. Alternatively, before starting, You can
export LC_ALL="jp_JP.UTF-8" instead.
Upon getting to the opening movie, You are asked which codec You want to use for movies. On a 64-bit prefix, You should choose the top one (MCI) because You will not have Windows Media Player installed (it doesn't work well anyway). But, You should also choose not to play the videos at all by clicking the left button (neither of them display their text correctly on my machine). Pressing the right button usually results in a core dump, but sometimes causes the game to hang indefinitely, which is really annoying in full screen because the game refuses to relinquish focus on Alt-Tab.
Some people have reported limited success using `winetricks quartz devnum ffdshow` or some derivative to make the movies that won't play work. I have not been able to confirm this on my machine. I've also tried installing all available gstreamer plugins, both 32 and 64 bit, and even a few extra codecs that have supposedly worked for other Japanese games. No success yet (will edit if I find a solution).
