What works

everything, works like a charm

What does not

Game is always in english. There is no option to change to (in my case) german.

FIX: start regedit (type regedit in terminal) and go to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Haemimont Games\Tropico 4 

create a new String "Language" with the value of your language (e.g. "German") 

Did not start in multi monitor mode with nvidia graphics
err:x11settings:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsEx No matching mode found

FIX: Start the game using the following command (modify for your screen)

wine explorer /desktop=foo,1680x1050 Tropico4.exe


What was not tested

Online gaming, facebook etc.
