What works

Single player, campaign, and online.

Online I was able to:

  • Log in.
  • Chat with people.
  • Join a game.
  • Play the game (got my ass kicked)
Online isn't perfect, it can be a bit unstable at times, but is usable.
Graphics are are usable, and bugs are minor as long as you set the settings too high.

What does not

Installer, Update


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Depending what version of CofH you have, either the Installer or the update will fail, anything after version 1.71 will whether fail to install or fail to update. So install the game in Windows, update it to the latest version, and then copy it for use with wine. It is recommended that you remove the BitTorrent client (RelicDownloader/RelicDownloader.exe) installed by the latest versions of Company of Heroes, since it can cause performance problems. Needed DLLs: - vcrun2005 (use winetricks) - vcrun2005sp1 (use winetricks) - d3dx9_36.dll (must be put in wine's c:\windows\system32 directory) annoyance - Logging in will sometimes result in a "this profile is currently busy, please try again shortly" message, retrying usually works.
