What works

I played some tutorials without problems.

With direct play over a vpn, I could play several 2...3hours evening sessions in endless mode with a friend and I remember only a crash once or twice.

What does not

When using "very high" graphic settings, the game started to miss textures after ~20minutes into the multiplayer game, and finally crashed. The console log indicated failing to allocate space for textures memory. I could complete the tutorials with highest graphics settings - but maybe they are not long enough.


This cashes about the graphic disappeared when using "low" (first few hours) or "medium" (later on) graphics presets.

What was not tested

Discover LAN games without entering the IP of the host.

Using "play over internet"

The add-on

If crashes are present with the "high" graphic preset.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: AMD
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

If you get the error message about a version mismatch, check the IP of your host twice. The game tells you "wrong version" even if you enter an IP no PC is using or not running the game.

HowTo / Notes

Starting the Game

Issue: Black Screen

To start the game you cannot do:

wine /path/to/Anno1701.exe

It will only give you a black screen.

Solution: Command for a Desktop Shortcut

You must use this command to start the game correctly:

env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/annoWinePrefix" wine C:\\windows\\command\\start.exe /Unix "/path/to/annoWinePrefix/drive_c/GOG Games/Anno 1701 AD/Anno1701.exe"

The command can be put in a desktop shortcut for convenience.

Solution 2: Use 'cd' before running the game

Aternatively the game can also be started correctly, if you cd into the install directory first.

Bash Script to start the game:

cd "/path/to/annoWinePrefix/drive_c/GOG Games/Anno 1701 AD/"
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/annoWinePrefix" wine Anno1701.exe
