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

Then just did a normal install. I have not gotten it to work properly outside of an emulation mode - seems to have trouble with the screen resolution when run outside emulation. Mouse speed works fine in this mode - game is definitely playable.
If the patch 1.00 - 1.04 patch is installed, the mouse stops working. If the expansion is installed, Empire Earth still works fine, but the expansion does not work.
Anyone had any success getting the expansion to work?
