Selected Test Results

What works

- basically everything, out of the box

- all the singleplayer stuff, that means the tutorials, the scenarios, the campaign, skirmish, save/load game, all game features

- the map editor

- main game and addon can be run independently of each other and both run fine and stable

What does not

- there exist slight problems with certain graphics settings

- water refraction causes everything that should be refracted to be highly pixelated

- 16x anti-aliasing causes stripes in the gui (looks similar to those caused by a broken printer) but lower anti-aliasing runs fine

- on all anti-aliasing settings (except for "none"), the pictures in the Annopedia (the ingame encyclopedia) are missing

- there was a mobile game for phones as well when this game came out, in which the player could collect thalers and then afterwards transfer those thalers to the normal PC game, but if the button to transfer the thalers gets clicked now, the game freezes


What was not tested

- multiplayer

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
