Selected Test Results

What works

- Installation through steam works fine

- Single player works

- Tutorials of game works 

- Game settings


What does not

- Attempting to launch from steam will cause issues

Workarounds

- Found that it was best to directly launch the game through the game's executable. Launching through steam will lead to the overriding necessary DLLs for the game by attempting to install them again (which it fails to do). 

What was not tested

- Multiplayer


Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Other
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

- Using a 32bit wrapper is recommended 

- In my case I found that lowering graphical settings had little if any impact on performance at all.

- Encountered issues with sound. Sound effects worked fine, but music did not play. 

- Lag occurs upon highlighting troops. Still attempting to find a solution (have dedicated 20+ hours in attempting to do so with some success in reducing the problem, no full solution yet).

- NOTE: Wine version selected is not one used (could not find the version I used specifically). As mentioned before though, a 32 bit version is recommended.
