What works

Gameplay works a treat and the ingame sounds are there. Textures are rendered fine. Random map gameplay and scenarios work. You can read the history as well.

What does not

No music. Can be solved in AOE one by installing timidity. In AOE II this problem is caused by the fact that the collectors edition doesn't come with the music required.


What was not tested

Multiplayer features were not tested.

HowTo / Notes


To get multiplayer working you have to use by now the directplay libraries from microsoft, still (since 2006) no open source libraries for direct play that include libraries to open sockets and close to play games, so install winetricks:

(in ubuntu/debian) sudo apt-get install winetricks

and then exec:
winetricks directplay

It will download the directplay libraries from microsoft and install them, that's all, tcp/ip will work with direct connect.

Black screen issues

If you get only a black screen upon starting a game
