Only the installer works out of the box but nothing else. However, once the workarounds detailed bellow are applied, the game works almost perfectly with all the videos and background music playing as expected.
What does not
To make the configuration window display properly:
To get the game to launch:
To get all the videos working install the following components and configure them as fallows:
To remove the crackling in the audio (the same as in my comment on The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel GOG 1.x test result):
What was not tested
Once the workarounds have been applied the game runs surprisingly well. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the MSAA setting. It does run under wine 4.0-rc4-staging but the background music in-game doesn't play in that version of wine and the solution for it in Trails of Cold Steel 1.5 described above doesn't work either. The good thing about Trails of Cold Steel 1.5 is that it doesn't require gdiplus when running under wine 3.2-staging in order to display the configuration dialog.
The components for playing the videos are the same needed for the Trails in the Sky games.
There is a very helpful installation guide for both Trails Cold Steel games over at Vaughan Hilts' blog.
