What works

Conquer the World single-player campaign, solo matches against AI.

What does not

None of the tutorials or "learn as you play" missions work. Hangs while loading, during the stage "building game" stage.

Music works but is artifact-heavy both in the menu and in-game. Sound effects are fine, if the music is disabled.

Introduction video hangs on a black screen but pressing Esc allows you to skip it and reach the main menu.


Winetricks necessary for sound to work at al:

    winetricks directmusic

What was not tested

Any of the online features (multiplayer, Twitch integration), modding and/or Steam Workshop, achievements, cloud save, etc.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Game was not thoroughly tested, played one long match to completion. Once inside the game works like a charm (except for having disabled music to avoid sound artifacts).

Wrong game

I didn't relize this was Rise of Nations. I thought it was rise of man. Attention wine application database, please move these test results to Rise of Man (alpha) and add me as a monitor. You may need to create a new page. Thank you.
