Installs but won't run
by Reed on Tuesday June 11th 2019, 9:40
I downloaded a Civ 6 .iso and ran `wine setup.exe` successfully only AFTER running `winecfg` and changing the windows version to Windows XP. I run LaunchPad.exe in WINE & it will load one screen but crashes before continuing into game. Done troubleshooting for now.

Getting these errors:
