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
The game works, including the graphics settings.
What does not
What was not tested
Multiplayer was not tested.
The mouse input is literally garbage. Fixes for this issue mentioned before don't work. I can use the cursor but I have to swipe the mouse a foot across the mouse pad every time to get the cursor to move just even a little. Not only was that a pain, but the cursor would cause graphical glitches as it went across the screen. This caused the game to be hardly playable. Keyboard input worked excellently in the game. Other than what I have mentioned before the game works flawlessly save for when switching graphical settings.
