Multiplayer LAN works
What does not
No problems occurred so far
What was not tested
Installation steps I needed: 1) copy all contents of cd1 into a new folder ~/aomcd 2) copy all contents of cd2 into a new folder ~/aomcd2 3) run "winecfg" and add pidgen.dll 4) run "winetricks -q mfc42" (without steps 3 or 4 installation does not start for me) 5) run the setup.exe in ~/aomcd (using "wine aomcd/setup.exe" from home directory) 6) when cd2 is requested, use a new terminal and switch folders, e.g.: 6.1) mv aomcd aomcd1 6.2) mv aomcd2 aomcd 6.3) hit ok and installation should proceed 7) when trying to launch the game, nothing starts and terminal says something like: 'L"SecDrv" failed' To resolve this just copy the file "secdrv.sys" from aomcd1 into your .wine directory into "drive_c/windows/system32/drivers/". The error no longer occurs and the game starts

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.
AoM installation may require:
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".
