What works

It seems to work just fine, with everything I played... besides having to launch it command line within the LOTR directory... i just wrote a simple bash script to launch it for me to throw in my games folder (I avoid command lines 99% of the time)

What does not

I didn't run into anything not working...


What was not tested

I didn't test any type of multiplayer... I dont know if the install works or not... I was playing off a version i had been using the dos .exe in there in DOSbox to play (which runs pretty bad)... so there was no actual install i ran in Wine, i just launched the LORDS2.EXE and played...

Additional Comments

I don't have an original disk anymore to test a full install, just my backup already "installed" copy I can copy wherever and use... I still love this game after playing it like 13 or 14 years off and on... Ran this on a Macbook Pro Late 2008 Unibody, runs almost too fast even with game speed down to zero.

HowTo / Notes


Make sure you change directory in order to run the game:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/SIERRA/Lords2/


The game must be installed in directory with no spaces in path

For example: If you install in directory "Lords\ Of\ The\ Realm\ 2" the game will crash. To fix that issue, rename the main directory to "LordsOfTheRealm2"
