What works

I installed the "K├Ângis-Edition" (not sure if that translates directly ot King's Edition) from DVD. Copied the content of the DVD first to a local subdirectory of temp and then installed it in a 32bit virtual drive on playonlinux. I did not installed any additional features to the wine environment, as this version of the game installs anyway the DirectX 9 from the disc.

Everything works well, if you add the Engine.ini file in the Anno 1404 Program directory as mentioned by the other users.

HowTo / Notes


In order to get the game working you must enable DirectX 9 instead of DirectX 10:

  • Locate the Engine.ini file (drive_c/Program Files/Ubisoft/Related Designs/ANNO 1404/ or drive_c/users/%username%/Application\ Data/Ubisoft/Anno1404/Config/ )
  • Edit or add a key named DirectXVersion and set the value to 9
  • The file should look similar to this:

The game should run flawlessly then...
