What works

The latest patch 1.217 corrects the ulimit crashes and improves a lot the length of the turns during the lastest phases of the game.

Single Player

All kind of maps and levels

Winning a game :)

What does not

Three video settings are always reset to "low level" (nvidia GTX460) whatever level you choose : ShadowLevel, TerrainTessLevel, TerrainShadowQuality

 Intro movie still doesn't run (you only get a black screen)

And of course the DX11 mode...

Additional Comments

Not to have any random crashes on launch or while winning a space race, you have to install mono 2.10 (perhaps that mono2.8.2 is enough but I prefered to install the latest stable version) For this, just perform a winetricks mono210 !

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Steam

If you are using this game with steam, see the Steam page for details on how to install Steam.

If you are unable to install Steam from the DVD, try installing it from http://store.steampowered.com/about/

Also remember to disable in-game community if you are using Steam.

Installation

For best results, start with a clean wine prefix, then install vcrun2008, d3dx9_36 and vcrun6sp6 using winetricks, then install the game normally.

DirectX 11 is not currently known to work, use DirectX 9 instead.

Use of downloadable content (DLC) may eventually cause the game to crash after a number of turns. If you are experiencing consistent crashes when near the renaissance age when playing with civilizations from the DLC, disabling any DLC other than the expansion packs is advised.
