What works

Once you get past the initial slowness, the game works quite well, and runs at about 60 fps on my hardware (Core i5-4690k, GTX 980) at 4K.

What does not

Initially, the game runs at about 1 fps with a glitchy, slow, partly indecipherable intro, and due to many inputs just not doing anything, I have to click several times to get the game to respond. See workaround.


Once I manage to change the resolution to 1080p, restart the game and run the game again, the game runs great - I can even go back to playing it at 4K with little issue. Not sure why this weird workaround works for me.

There is probably some workaround to get a Steam controller working properly, or an Xbox 360 controller working at all, but I couldn't figure it out.

What was not tested

I did not complete the game, so there may be issues later on.

Chugs along at 15 fps
by Bryan Willis on Wednesday November 29th 2017, 21:44
Tried the settings from the latest silver rated install using wine 2.14. I got past the 1fps chugging all right. But only could later manage to get the game to run at a max of 15 fps or so. It felt very sluggish, and unfortunately for a plat former this just wasn't acceptable. :c

Any suggestions on a fix would be great. But I had CMST staging turned on, wine 2.14 using windows7 prefix and I'm running off of Ubuntu 16.04

You may want to try it again with a fresh prefix, making sure WINEARCH=win64 and you're running ShantaeHero64.exe. I've determined the issues are caused by 32-bit mode. If you're actually running fully in 64-bit mode the game now runs fine, at least for me.
