What works

The installer works, but only with some hackery. The problem is that there is one file on Disc 1 with a filename encoded in Japanese characters, and under Wine the installer fails to find this file. The only solution I've found is as follows:

- Copy the entirety of Disc 1 into a temporary directory, and make the copied files writable.

- Rename the file in the DirectX/ subdirectory whose filename is non-ASCII to something ASCII of the same length in bytes (e.g. "abcdefghijklmn.txt")

- Open the file data1.hdr in a binary file editor like GHex, find the non-ASCII filename (it's right before GA_start.exe) and overwrite it with the same thing you renamed the actual file to.

- Run the modified installer and it will successfully install all the Disc 1 files from the temporary directory. When it asks for Disc 2, you can change the install-from path to your CD-ROM drive and install the remaining files from the original discs.

The troublesome file isn't actually part of the game and isn't needed after installation; it's just Microsoft's README file for the DirectX 8.1 installer that comes with the game.

Note that the installer must be run under Japanese locale settings (in Wine, LC_ALL=ja_JP), or the text will be illegible.

What does not

The game itself does not start. When executed, it produces a message box with the following error message (original message is in Japanese; translation by me):

Some kind of error occurred while accessing the base table. It is necessary to recheck the system requirements.
