What does not
Loading big maps with Wine: ~ 20 Minutes and Windows: ~5 Minutes
Game starts lagging after ~8 hours playing (the same map) and needs to be restartet.
What was not tested
Current Patch (since I didn't installed Anno under wine, I can't update it).
Wine 1.1.31 and later currently need a change for Anno 1404. You have to disable DX10 so it won't say: "no DX drivers found". I tested the german version (which is a bit older then the english one ;)). Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

In order to get the game working you must enable DirectX 9 instead of DirectX 10:
The game should run flawlessly then...
