Additional Comments

I have needed to install vc2005 and mscorefonts to work and avoid crashes. For sound on mac is also need to add a override to openal32 in winecfg. The main problema to play the game is the updater and the GameGuard. The updater crashes in Wine, and the GameGuard never worked in Wine. To workaround the both problems you will need a already updated version (copied from a Windows Instalation) and the antigg dll to disable the GameGuard. The antigg can be downloaded here: There's two ways to load the antigg.dll, one is using the loader the comes with the antigg zip, but It don't work for me. The other is use CFF explorer ( (can be runned inside Wine) to put the antigg.dll inside the client: After this, just create a shortcut (or run directly in a terminal) to client.exe (the client.exe is in bin directory of B&S) and put the following parameters: /launchbylauncher /sesskey /CompanyID: "12" /ChannelGroupIndex: "-1" /LoginMode 2 -lang:English -region:0 Switch the lang param to change the language (not tested) e and region (0 to USA 1 to EU) param to change the region. Remember that remove the GG will violate the game TOS. To help to keep the game updated can be a good idea to link the game dir in a Windows VM to the game directory in your wineprefix, this way you can do the nescessary updated from time in time without having to copy again all the files. Just to remember to patch the client.exe again after ther updates to remove the GameGuard.
