HowTo / Notes

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 appear.

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.

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.
