What works

Everything, with some tweaks.

- The game needs to be run with a 16-bit color depth. The most convenient way to do this is to use Xephyr, as documented here: http://wiki.winehq.org/256ColorMode. However, you will want to use a 16-bit color depth (not 8bit). I created a small shell script to run Xephyr and run Chaos Overlords inside the Xephyr window. $ cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Chaos/ $ cat startChaos.sh #!/bin/bash Xephyr :1 -ac -screen 800x600x16 & DISPLAY=:1 wine Chaos\ Overlords.exe This needs to be placed in the same directory as the exe and made executable of course.

- Make sure to unzip the game to C:\Chaos, and to store save files in the same directory

- Networking works. However, you might find that you can't see the popup window that's supposed to appear when you click Host or Join. It still accepts input, so type in the IP address if you're joining, or just press enter if you're hosting and you'll move to the next screen.

What does not
