HowTo / Notes


Age of Wonders intro movie is enconded with Indeo3.2 video codec [IV32] which can't be found in a standard wine prefix, in order to fix this, IntelVideo codec needs to be installed.

Google for a copy of iv5setup.exe and run:

wine iv5setup.exe

When asked about which type of install do you want, select Custom (this is because Indeo5 codec fails to install and the installation is dropped), then select only, Indeo Video 3.2 codec and Indeo Audio Codec, press next.

If the installer asks about searching for backups press No.

This should fix it and the intro movie will show without problems.
