This is the basic version of Empire Earth, without the AOC expansion.
There are 3 versions:
1.0, 1.04 and 2.0. These verions don't make any noticeable difference in Wine.
The 2.0 version is NOT Empire Earth II
- start the game
- patching the game to Version 1.04
What does not
- change the resolution doesn't work or not properly
What was not tested
Have to install directmusic via winetricks or the game even won't start.The mouse is terribly slow so the game is unplayable or only very hard :(
