I was able to install the game with no problems in wine.
What does not
Updating the game gives the error "cannot change directory.c35". Tried windows xp, 2000, 98, and vista but they all get the same result.
What was not tested
Could not test playing the game as I couldn't update it.

The Closed beta has a bug:
Your Password is limited to 12 Chars, if you can't login go to the Areagamessite and change your password.
If your Username has special Chars like _ or - you have to create a new account.
If the game won't start at all you have to get extra DLL Files
Run this command:
wget http://neocomy.net/files/dlls-12sky.zip;unzip dlls-12sky.zip -d ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/;rm dlls-12sky.zip
Change the directory to your Shaiya Directory and run this command:
WINEDEBUG=-all wine game.exe
This version is obsolete
