HOWTO PLAY ONLINE

Multiplayer
To get multiplayer working you have to use by now the directplay libraries from microsoft, still (since 2006) no open source libraries for direct play that include libraries to open sockets and close to play games, so install winetricks:

(in ubuntu/debian) sudo apt-get install winetricks

and then exec:
winetricks directplay

It will download the directplay libraries from microsoft and install them, that's all, tcp/ip will work with direct connect.


 
Prepatched fully working wine

For History or if you cant get it to work properly

If you dislike the newer wines (1.3.24 and higher) because of the ugly decorations and/or the buggy/missing sound then this might be of interest to you.
Since wine-1.3.35 AoE2 is fully working with OpenGL and GDI renderer, performance issue is gone too.
Now the downsides, audio at the moment is only working on "new and unstable" distributions (alsa 1.0.24 or higher) and the beautiful winepulse driver is badly gone (well, half "implemented" but not fully working).
Therefore I decided to make a 1.3.20 wine with pulse audio, alsa, oss, jack, esd drivers and with all the fixes from wine 1.3.35/1.3.37 for AoE2 and the new patch for the disconnecting hangup bug.
You can download the prepatched (all patches are included in a separate directory) wine here:

greetings

 (note to  K1773R, I think it's time to remove this because actually aoe2 works perfect with new wine versions)

Resolution problem
by hunter on Friday June 20th 2014, 19:17
When I start up the game, it occupies only the corner of the screen (the rest of the screen is black) I have been playing around with configure wine but it doesn't help

I use wine version 1.5 and ubuntu 12.04.

Performance issues
by Sven B. on Tuesday May 13th 2014, 14:59
For me performance is perfect (nothing is noticeably slow or anything) if I change X to start with 16-bit color mode (start X -depth 16). It's inconvenient because other things seem kind of broken in 16 bit depth mode (e.g. compositing), but at least it works. With that, the game works perfectly.

The issue with "Please insert the game CD" when selecting single player mode can apparently be avoided by installing the Full version of the game, instead of the Minimal one.

Page fault on read access
by Robert Fivecoat on Thursday February 6th 2014, 5:14
So I have installed AoE 2, patched up to 2.0, and applied a nocd crack.

That said, every time I try to run the game, I receive an error from wine.

I am currently running:

Wine 1.6
Emulate virtual desktop enabled
Windows XP (I have tried 95 and NT as well)

The error reads as follows:

Thank you very much.

So...Not Quite
by James McConnel on Sunday November 10th 2013, 20:22
I was a little hasty. The game still does not let you start a new regular campaign, because it thinks the CD isn't in the drive. You can get around this by completing the last scenario from the Learning Campaign. You can access all the Campaigns from the summary screen.

It might be easier just to install The Conquerors Expansion. It does not seem to have this problem.

Finally Got it to Work!
by James McConnel on Friday November 8th 2013, 23:00
It feels like years, but in the end the fixes were all to simple. It works great now. I don't know why this info is so hard to find:

-Copy the "game\sound" directory from the CD to the installation directory. (Fixes CD not found issue, but you will still need the CD to play!)
-You must start the game with the installation directory as your path. (Fixes the "display not initialized"/directdraw error)
To do this in the terminal, navigate to the installation directory before starting the game.
Or just use the desktop shortcut wine generated during setup.

"System files were updated, you must reboot before continuing"
by Friedrich Weber on Friday July 6th 2012, 11:56
If you run into the problem with setup.exe exiting with the message "System files were updated, you must reboot before continuing" and using `wineboot` not having any effect, try removing the `EBUReboot` key in Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce (system.reg). You can do that via regedit or by deleting the corresponding line (`"EBUReboot"="blablabla"`) in ~/.wine/system.reg

Workaround for sound, graphics, and
by Charles Wise on Thursday July 7th 2011, 8:23
After a lot of troubleshooting and testing, I finally got Age of Empires II to run pretty successfully on my Samsung laptop with Ubuntu 11.04 using Wine 1.2.2. I encountered and solved the following issues:

1) No game CD detected.
2) No sound in game.
3) Choppy scrolling


1) No game CD detected
Despite carefully installing AOE2 through PlayOnLinux from the CD, this error kept coming up, even after configuring Wine to look in the CD-ROM drive to run the game. Eventually I ditched PlayOnLinux and just installed the game directly through Wine using the command-line, which overcomes the "executable-bit" problem of Wine trying to run a read-only executable on a disk.

a) With the AOE2 CD inserted, open Terminal and navigate to the CD-ROM drive (the directory is called AOE2 and is located in /media/AOE2). Run the installer by typing "wine aoesetup.exe." The installer will start in the Wine Program Loader.

b) Click through all the steps to install the game (it's not a bad idea to make a desktop icon either so that you don't have to launch the game through the command-line each time). When the install is finished, do not start playing immediately but exit the game installer.

c) Open Configure Wine by typing "winecfg" at the command-line. First, add the program "empires2.exe" by clicking "Add Application" and browsing to the program location (Program Files -> Microsoft Games -> Age of Empires II -> empires2.exe).

d) Set the Windows version to Windows XP, then click on the "Drives" tab. Click "Autodetect" to see if your CD-ROM drive will automatically be detected. If not, then click "Add" and specify the path as /media/AOE2, which is where the CD is inserted. Click "Apply" and then click "OK."

e) Test the CD-ROM recognition by opening Age of Empires, creating a new user, and then click on "Single Player." The game should allow you to choose from the single-player game options now.


2) No sound in the game
Another problem that affects Age of Empires in Ubuntu is that Wine doesn't do a very good job of utilizing PulseAudio, the default sound server for Ubuntu. Before opening the game, go to the command-line and type in "killall pulseaudio" before starting. Make sure you stop running any audio programs as well before opening the game.

a) Once in the game (meaning playing on the map), there may still be no sound. No to worry. Just open the command-line again and type in the "killall pulseaudio" command to get your in-game sound. The sound will reboot and start playing from the beginning.


3) Choppy scrolling and annoying desktop intrusions
You may have noticed that the in-game performance is a bit weak. This can be fixed by resizing the graphics inside the game itself and by disabling "Desktop Effects" in the CompizConfig Settings Manager under System Settings. If you do not have this manager installed, it is highly recommended you do so, so that you can make edits to the Compiz settings.

a) Open the manager, select effects, and get rid of all effects except for "Window Decoration." This should help eliminate flickering in the game.

b) In the game, select the Options button, and resize the screen to the standard 800x600 output, even if your screen is not this size. The performance will improve dramatically using this resolution, especially the scrolling. Though it may not be the best graphics display ever, the benefits outweigh the costs in my opinion.

After all this, you should have a decently-functioning version of Age of Empires in Wine on Ubuntu.

DirectDraw problem and multiplayer problem
by Defiance on Wednesday March 2nd 2011, 9:51
Hello. I have tried run AOE2 wine (which I have installed with apt-get) and I was receiving the message that could I cannot connect (cannot join) to the game in multiplayer. I have tried the tip of DLLs in the page of game in wineappdb too.

So, ok. I recompile the wine and after that the game not runs, and I received the message "Could not initialize Graphics System. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirecDraw".

I think my tip will also work in another distribution linux and another version of wine (I was used the version 1.3.14). So, make this:

For debian users, first make this:

sudo apt-get install libfreetype6-dev
sudo apt-get install fontforge
sudo apt-get install ftgl-dev glutg3-dev freeglut3-dev ftgl-dev
sudo apt-get install xorg-dev
sudo apt-get install gcc flex bison libc6-i386 libc6-dev-i386

So, I was make this steps for solve my problem:

1- Uninstall the wine

2- Execute the follow commands:

cd /usr/lib32
sudo ln -s libX11.so.6 libX11.so
sudo ln -s libXext.so.6 libXext.so
sudo ln -s libfreetype.so.6 libfreetype.so
sudo ln -s libz.so.1 libz.so

2- Download the source of the wine.

3- Extract the source with: tar jxf wine-version.tar.bz2

4- Enter in the source directory and execute the command:
LDFLAGS="-L/lib32 -L/usr/lib32 -Wl,-rpath,/lib32 -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib32" ./configure --enable-opengl --disable-trace --disable-debug --with-x

5- Execute the command:

make depend && make all && sudo make install

6- Ok, now wine it's finished to be installed. So, place the DLLs of winepage (the first tip of this page) in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.

It's this ! After this steps my wine runs AoE2 in multiplayer :D

(and sorry for my english too :)

by Vndecid on Saturday January 29th 2011, 4:19
Hi i have a problem with the image in this game.
I used Mandriva and wine -1.2 so i installed the game fine but when i run the game at the menu the game looks like this img204.imageshack.us/img204/892/agey.jpg . I thougth thta this problem is because the NVIDIA drivers are new or something so i change the drivers i used VESA but the results were the same.
So after that upgrade the wine version to wine-1.3.12 at the menu was all ok with some "glitches" but when i start a game the game these glithces are the game and AOE II looks like this img339.imageshack.us/img339/3926/instantnea4q.png

Any idea?

Workabout for the Regicide/Random Map hang
by Joel Holdsworth on Sunday September 19th 2010, 10:49
I found that if the app is hung entering the game, you can release it from the deadlock with this workabout.

I started the game up with this command:
$ wine explorer /desktop=1024x768,AoE empires2.exe
Go into Regicide or Random Map and set up the match. After pressing start game, the game will be hung showing the dreaded hourglass forever. When this happens open any other Wine app (e.g. notepad). When the second app has opened clicking back in the game's window should release the deadlock.

I might try and debug the problem at some stage.

Successfully running on Kubuntu 10.04
by labosch on Sunday May 16th 2010, 5:37
The game runs smoothly on my rather old system with Kubuntu 10.04 and wine 1.1.42. What I did:

1. Installed the game via CD
2. Patched it to version 2.0a
3. Fetched a NoCd-exe
4. Selected "Emulate Virtual Desktop" in winecfg/Graphics as Miaz Akemapa suggested (otherwise the game crashed at startup)
5. Disabled "Desktop Effects" in Kubuntu's System Settings as this makes the mouse flicker

Minor problems:
1. Black font in main menu
2. Scrolling the map in the game is a bit choppy

The rest works perfectly, I have no performance issues or sound problems.

Slow game play not linked to CPU or RAM!
by Barry Bingham on Sunday February 10th 2008, 12:37
I've been trying to play AoE2 & Conquerors on and off for some time using Crossover and vanilla Wine. Under 0.9.54 play is as good as it's ever been, but is still compromised by the slowdown that occurs when you select a building (especially town centre or castle) or a unit (especially military units).

Until recently I've played using an AMD 3000 64 bit CPU and 1GB of RAM and assumed, as others have said that the problem was that for some bizarre reason this elderly Win98 era game was eating masses of power and RAM.

I've now played the game on a tiny Koolu micro PC with an AMD Geode 800 processor and just 512MB RAM running Ubuntu Feisty. To my amazement it's pretty much at the same playability state as on the vastly more powerful tower system: meaning it looks great but cannot be properly played because of the slowdown on unit selection..... Anyone got round this, or any idea what the cause might be??

Some buttons missing
by Thomas on Friday November 30th 2007, 16:42
When a military unit is selected, there should be several buttons available in order to change their behaviour eg. "do not attack" or "agressive". These buttons are just not there.
As allready recognized by my precedator, when a building is selected, the game becomes really slow.
Probably those two problems are related one to the other. Might be difficult to backtrace.

Perfect installation. Followed the steps given on this page correctly. Applied the multiplayer DLL fix and the removal of that one DLL. Yet whenever I launch the game, I get the following error:

"Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw."

I am using Ubuntu 7.04 and I have the nVidia Accelerated Driver installed correctly and it is working. All other programs and packages are working correctly. I also have the latest Wine version (0.9.43) and have installed it correctly as well and configured it, as it too is working properly.

Any suggestions? I see this use to be a bug for this game, but it has since been labeled as "FIXED". If I don't get a solution though, I'm going to reopen it with my information. Thanks in advance.

Hi I installed the the game today, added the no cd crack, but nevertheless I can't get it running. I always get the following errors: fixme:system:SystemParametersInfoW Unimplemented action: 110 (SPI_GETSHOWIMEUI)
fixme:d3d:IWineD3DDeviceImpl_GetAvailableTextureMem (0x168de8) : stub, simulating 64MB for now, returning 64MB left
fixme:ddraw:IDirectDrawImpl_SetCooperativeLevel (0x163810)->((nil),00000008)
fixme:d3d:IWineD3DStateBlockImpl_Release Releasing primary stateblock
And a popup saying that the Graphicsystem can't be initialized.I'm using Opensuse 10.2 and wine 0.9.34 On an older Suse Version it worked last year.

Multiplayer doesn't work
by Martin Klapetek on Saturday March 17th 2007, 16:40
Hi, I've added those libraries stated above, but I can't get the multiplayer runing. I can play the singleplayer (slowly, but that's not the problem here), but when I choose the multiplayer, I can't see any LAN games. When I try to create a LAN game, no one sees me and if I click on the 'IP' button, it shows that my IP is 127.0.0.1. I've also tried Internet TCP/IP, when I create, it is the same (I have public IP and it still shows 127.0.0.1) and no one can connect to me, nor can I connect to anyone. Furthermore, I tried it with compiled hamachi...no effect. I'm using wine 0.9.32, Hamachi the latest release for linux and Fedora Core 6.

What can I do to get the multiplayer running? Thanks in advance

It works well
by Dark Apostrophe on Sunday December 31st 2006, 9:31
The game works pretty well. As I said in the test data form, it runs but crashes once in a while, though probably due to bugs in the software. Initially, I needed to fiddle around with winecfg to get it running properly, but other than that, the only thing I had to do was find a crack. I haven't tested multiplayer.

I tested AOE2 v2.0 on slackware 10.2 with wine0.9.17, the game runs very good in single player (only with some small audio bugs). And Multiplayer works very good too. you have to download dxplay dlls and set as native in winecfg(for more info read at the top of the page). Also Age of empires 2: the conquerors 1.0c runs great

Wine 20050419
by Debarshi Ray on Wednesday July 27th 2005, 16:39
I used the Wine released in April 2005 to run Age of Kings and the Conqueror's Expansion. Everything is ok except the fonts which are black and so the stockpile can not be seen. The fonts are missing in other places too. Moreover I miss the sound and the multiplayer.

Age of empire II
by oneforall on Saturday July 9th 2005, 5:16
Its installed 20050211 cvs
But its the sound thats a problem lots of echo wich slows the game down
If you goto the games ooption and turn off the sound it plays a bit better. But the sound is good for warning etc.
I noticed that glib with nptl it cut down the sound probnlem a bit . eg:as the gqmeloads the load bar goes farther before you hear the echo. and it stops for a bit and starts again. Before when it started about have loaded it never stoped
This was a 2 ganme pack Gold Edition it has Conquerors expantion.
couldn't get that to install

Update

At time of writing (03/12/2004) the installation program works, and the trial version runs correctly (but slowly) in single player mode. More work is needed for multiplayer, and the full version fails because of copy protection.
