Additional Comments

Followed old process found here in order to fix shadows/terrain issues on map: 1. Install from disc 2. Add the following to registry CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\Settlers6.exe\Direct3D set: 2.1 "OffscreenRenderingMode"="fbo" 2.2 "VideoMemorySize"="256" 3. Update to 1.7.1 (if not already). 4. Download and install nocd for version 1.5.4 (NOT 1.7.1!!) Then gameplay works just fine. Tested with wine version 1.7.43, 1.7.41 and 1.6.2 which works fine, but 1.8.6 and up to 2.3 has some major graphical glitches which makes the game hardly playable
