Selected Test Results

What works

Launches to initial screen with buttons (no text), the top button goes to another screen with what appears to have clickable components though they are not visible

Various other menus with what looks like partly visible check boxes, text boxes

Gameplay! Almost. I managed to build a farm (with invisible citizens)


What does not

Missing interface assets like buttons, likely missing art assets, missing text. The menus are effectively useless.

In-game graphics are very very broken and leave it 99% unplayable. Many assets are missing (units, trees, interface items) though some are visible albeit somehow broken still


What was not tested

Most things

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

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.
