Retail 2 Disc version of the game.
Plot: Kawakami City is famous for its strong dedication to its samurai ancestors. A healthy fighting spirit is always valued and it is even an important factor for success at school. Yamato, a second year student from Kawakami Academy is always with his close friends (three boys and three girls). They have all known each other since they were young and have done many things together. While they have many other friends, this group of seven is a close-knit, inseparable group. They even have a secret base where they meet. With the new semester, they welcome two girls into their group and shortly after things begin to change.
Everything after initial install. All gameplay, audio, and visual effect run without issue.
Installing via disc was a pain. Installer would not detect disc 2 no matter what. Solution was to mount disc 1 via CDEmu, and copy the contents to the install directory, "/home/YOUR_USERNAME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/ã¿ãªã¨ããµã¨/ãƒžã‚¸ã“ã„ï¼", then mount disc 2 and also copy its contents to the install directory to manually install the game.
Used the final version of fuwanovels english translation found here : http://forums.fuwanovel.net/topic/6556-majikoi-translation-project/?p=165700
Run the the patch use : LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine "Majikoi English Patch.exe"
Then, you can run the game using : LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF-8 LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine "ã¾ã˜ã“ã„.exe"
Note game needs to be installed and ran using japanese locale always. If you forget, you might corrupt your saves!!!
Had no issues with fonts, but I am using "ttf-win8-fonts" from the AUR, so if you have font issues install windows fonts!!!
No sound issues with Pulseaudio on my laptop.
What does not
The "Setup.exe" installer will not work with retail disc versions. Had to manually copy disc contents to install directory to install the game.
What was not tested
100% game completion. 3 1/2 hours in the game, no issues.
