Anno 1701, v1.04 and includes the Sunken Dragon addon, v2.03.
Singleplayer and the world editor.
What does not
The installer quits 3/4 through with a runtime error. The files can be extracted with innoextract, though.
What was not tested
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.
