What works

  • Basic gameplay
  • Videos
  • Gamepad
  • Keyboard, mouse controls
  • Combat
  • Saving, loading

Overall, things work very well.

What does not

  • Audio can crackle if the performance is halting, it would seem to be a WINE specific issue (Pulseaudio?)
  • MSAA does not work, instant crash if you try and enable it 
  • Performance is good but stutters sometimes, so not full performance
  • Without CSMT, some textures are missing and flickering
  • Importing from the standard save location does not wor


  • For MSAA, just don't turn it on. The game looks fine without it.
  • Performance, try turning WINEDEBUG off and other things to try and get a bit better performanc
  • Enable CSMT
  • You need to import from another location: ./drive_c/users/touma/Application Data/Falcom/ed8_2

What was not tested

Additional Comments

The gist of things are:

  1. Install Steam on WINE
  2. Install corefonts, vcrun2008, xact, vcrun2015, amstream, dsound, gdiplus, quartz, xvid, LAV filters for video
  3. Configure the game, turn MSAA off. Skip videos if you don't have LAV Filters.
  4. Load the game -- load up your save files and play the game.
