Additional Comments

Finally fixed the HDR clipping issues. Gladly giving this a platinum rating. Mipmapping must also be off.

HowTo / Notes


To run Ys Origin in current wine (1.5.8)

  • Use native quartz (winetricks quartz)
  • Make sure you have japanese locale
  • Launch the game with 'LC_ALL=ja_JP.utf8 wine [exe]'
  • Japanese games might work without Japanese locale, but usually not without issues.
Ys Origin should run now. If you get crash on the intro, patch from Falcom site or from extra disc should fix this.

There is also English patch located here. To use it, you need to have the original game and patch it using the extra disc.

There are some graphical bugs, mainly water refractions, and gray first boss (probably caused by bump mapping?)
The water reflections can be fixed by turning down the reflection slider in config.exe (second slider)

These graphical bugs seem to also affect some Windows users

Movie playback not working
by Timo Taipaleenmäki on Wednesday September 11th 2013, 9:03
I can't seem to get movie playback to work at all ( fine with players like mplayer). I've tried to fiddle with native quartz.dll, wmp10, d3dx9 packages. Can someone be more specific what libraries/packages are needed for a video playback?
