What works



PS4 controller

Mouse and Keyboard inputs


What does not

Audio delay in cutscenes. It's about a 1 second delay between the time the audio comes out and the characters open their mouths. Not a huge deal, but it happens.

Funnily enough, it only happens in cutscenes. I didn't notice any audio delays when in-game.


What was not tested

I played for about 1 hour and everything worked. 

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

This game was a nightmare to get running. It relies on a bunch of old, decrepit DLLs that I'm amazed wine even has in their database in 2021. What I did to get it to work was download this specific
SH3 widescreen fix (the name is "sh3proxy" in case the link breaks in the future) and then run:

winetricks quartz devenum dsdmo directmusic

The libraries above are needed to play the cutscenes and video files. After this, paste the d3d8 DLL downloaded from the github link above in the game's installation folder and set the DLL to "native" in winecfg. Also set the windows version to windows 10.

After all of this, the game should work and give the same performance as windows. I managed to get the game running on my windows partition too, and the performance was the same.
