What does not
When I tried to download AOE - Steam messaged me: content servers unreachable
Open the file in the hidden folder: /Users/YOU/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/config/config.vdf
Within the file, you will find the text:
Create a new line under the line for "cip" and paste this text into that line:
The intro video is not loading, so skip it: In the Steam Library>Properties> click â€œSet launch options…â€ button.
After all updates, if you want to play AOE the Launcher.exe fails.
Open the folder: /Users/YOU/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Age2HD
and rename or delete Launcher.exe
Copy the file AoK HD.exe and rename it: Launcher.exe
What was not tested
all was tested
If you want to have a good resolution, go to winecfg and put the resolution-handler to it maximum.
But you might not see the handler at the next time you open winecfg due to the high resolution
What you can do is to use your keyboard to set down the resolution again to 91.
