Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
This is the steam edition; so far everything I can see it works fine. All the fonts look okay (compared to last time I tried it had all the ><><<>> everywhere).
Sound, Music, gameplay, cutscenes all worked.
What does not
Well when you try and play the game from steam it takes you to a register game screen where the only thing that doesn't work is the register button! If you launch the game directly in "Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/galactic civilizations ii - ultimate edition/galciv2.exe" then the game complains about resolutions but runs perfectly after that.
What was not tested
Multiplayer and finishing the game, running the game for a significant amount of time.
No crashes experienced.
Would be set to platinum if not for the weird register game problem. When game run directly it works perfectly.

Won't start under STEAM

Ubuntu 10.04 64 and 12.04 64, no matter what of the 2 you use, under STEAM, the game can't complete registration. Registering the game on another PC or another OS won't solve the problem. Tried it in both OS and with both wine 1.4 and 1.5.11. Neither case works. :(

Game crashes (page fault) on startup
by Dan on Saturday August 11th 2012, 4:24
Bought this via steam a little bit ago and went to try playing it. Install goes fine, trying to run it via steam gives me the registration problems everyone else runs in to. Running directly via the command line (or even just cancelling registration in steam) gives me the warnings about desktop resolution being 0x0, color depth being 0bit, and direct x not enabled (which it looks like other people get as well) but then in page fault's on me and everything crashes.
