When you start the game, the screen may be black. Switch
to another program (Alt + Tab) and then back to the game, and it should
Elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not
hidden when Warlords Battlecry II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed
by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be
changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that
windows are allowed to cover it.
Multiplayer To get multiplayer working, place the DLLs in this archive
in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll
overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet,
dpnhpast and dpwsockx. NOTE: the game freezes when exiting a multiplayer game.

The game itself runs the same way in windows, the resolution change is not applied until you run the game mode.
Problems with resolution change
by Alexander Gehrke on Sunday March 9th 2008, 12:21
When I start Battlecry2, it uses a 800*600 resolution,which afaik can't be changed. my (tft) monitor has a native resolution of 1280*1024, so it has a ratio of 5:4 instead of 4:3. this causes battlecry to cut of part of the screen, so you have to guess where the buttons are.
When starting a map and changing resolution to 1280*1024 the window minimizes itself and if I try to bring it back, it only shows a small square of the game in the lower left corner of the desktop. This only happens fir 1280*1024, 1024*768 works fine.
