What does not
What was not tested
Small sound issues however not anything that damage gameplay. 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 commands: sudo chown root LSANS.* (to change user) sudo chgrp root LSANS.* (to change group) This prevents the following two errors: Error loading font (Error code 13) Error loading font (Error code 28) There might be a problem with gameoverlayrenderer.dll. In Wine you can request it to be disabled, which will make Civilization 3 run without any problems.
