Additional Comments

The game has two problems which I can't pin point, they might be either bugs in Wine or in the game itself. First, it crashes from time to time. Sometimes after five minutes of play, sometimes after two hours. It also seems to constantly crash when accepting an alliance from a computer player. Second, sometimes the graphic glitches and doesn't recover, this is either that the map (I mean the map display) is suddenly unexplored, backgrounds become black or everything turns purple. As far as I can see this goes hand in hand with various OpenGL errors which are printed to the console. This especially happens if you switch away from the game (to another window). As said, I can't exclude that these are actually bugs in the game, especially the crashes. Last but not least, it *might* help to use a 32bit prefix. Another setting I'm currently testing is setting the VRAM to the actual size it is. So you also might want to try that.

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:

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