Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installer not tested as I don't have a CD tray on this computer. Used a copy of the installed game pulled from a windows machine - works fine
  • Intro cinematics, menus, options, sound, music, game mechanics, single player skirmish, campaign, scenarios, editor
  • Passing arguments to the executable: +noIntroCinematics xres=1920 yres=1080 bpp=32

What does not

  • Water, cloud and fog of war textures are not displaying properly and exhibit buggy behaviour

Workarounds

  • To completely fix these issues, under the folder gfxconfig of the game installation, remove/backup i845.gfx and replace with a copy ofgeforce3.gfx

What was not tested

  • Multiplayer

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • You can use emulated fullscreen to avoid annoying resizes when you change settings in-game which causes the resolution values passed as arguments to the executable to reset
  • Tested vanilla version 1.0, then after patch 1.10 application. Identical results

HowTo / Notes

Old Errors/Problems

These errors/problems have been reported on older versions of wine, but are listed here (along with possible solutions) in case they pop up again.

 

Problem:  Flickering water and/or memory leak
Solution:  Set graphics detail to low and increase your swap size. 

Problem:  MS EULA Appears below AoM logo on first launch.
Solution:  Focus the window using the taskbar or Alt+Tab and then use Alt+A to agree.

Problem:  You need MSXML 4.0
Solution:  Use the version included on the install CD.  Type "wine msiexec /i msxml.msi" to install.

Problem:  The installer can't find PidGen.DLL.
Solution:  Copy PidGen.DLL from the installation CD and place it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.

HOWTO

AoM installation may require:

* MFC42.DLL

If nothing happens after you click "Next" on the CD Key input screen, you may need this file.

Place the file in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.  Add a new override (see below).

 

Adding an Override

Run "winecfg" from the command line.  Click the "Libraries" tab at the top of the window that appears.

Type the name of the library into "New override for library:" (type "pidgen" for PidGen.DLL).  Click "Add",

make sure that "(native, builtin)" appears next to the library you just added.  If it doesn't highlight the new

override and click "Edit" select "Native then builtin" and click "OK" and finally click "OK".
