What works

This was tested the german version of Anno 1404 Venice (Venedig) - Installing on Anno 1404 sale version (installing on patched Anno 1404 will fail because Venice ships with the first two patches which can't perform at least on the third official patch I had already installed. Reinstall Anno 1404 if this error occurs and you're good) - Patching sales version to 2.01.5010 using it's shipped autopatcher (works manually too). - Offline-Profile - Multiplaying LAN (Online not tested) - Long Time Playing - Copy protection (ships with TAGES but that's disabled with the second official patch 1.02.2619 so there is no issue any more with this, yay! :) ) Important: I used wine 1.3.9 for installing and patching. There's a bug report open (Bug 25742) for patching this with wine 1.3.11.

What does not

- DirectX10, use DirectX9 instead


What was not tested

- Online Playing using Online Profile stuff

Additional Comments

Works only with DirectX9 (installed with winetricks). You have to add 9 to engine.ini. Please note that there are several Engine.ini files around after patching Anno 1404 with Venice. I got at least 3: install folder, user data/Ubisoft/Anno1404/Config/Engine.ini and user data/Ubisoft/Anno1404Addon/Config/engine.ini. Make sure to get the last one for Venice.

HowTo / Notes


In order to get the game working you must enable DirectX 9 instead of DirectX 10:

  • Locate the Engine.ini file (drive_c/Program Files/Ubisoft/Related Designs/ANNO 1404/ or drive_c/users/%username%/Application\ Data/Ubisoft/Anno1404/Config/ )
  • Edit or add a key named DirectXVersion and set the value to 9
  • The file should look similar to this:

The game should run flawlessly then...
