What does not
What was not tested
For the game to run, the following must be done: copy the file: .wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/sid meier's civilization iii complete/Conquests/LSANS.TTF to: .wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/sid meier's civilization iii complete/Conquests/LSANS.fot then open a console and browse to: .wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/sid meier's civilization iii complete/Conquests/ and type the following command: sudo chown root LSANS.* This prevents the following two errors: Error loading font (Error code 13) Error loading font (Error code 28) With this the game should now run. Then to remove graphical glitches, uncheck "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg. From there, everything should work perfectly. But the music pops a little, that can probably be tweaked.

This is the most frequent sound which is buggy, for the other sounds disable sound FX and enable it again as mentioned before.
