The Steam version of Galactic Battlegrounds, patched to support newer operating systems.
Installing via Steam.
What does not
The game almost launches, but then crashes to the desktop without an error. This may be related to the game's intro video failing to play correctly, as the following line appears right before the crash in the terminal output:
"err:msvideo:ICLocate Required media codec 'vidc IV50' not found!"
However, there is no simple way to bypass the intro video in the Steam version.
What was not tested
Playing the game.

Once Steam and the game is installed, you need to do the following to keep the game from crashing after the intro videos:
drive_c/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/STAR WARS - Galactic Battlegrounds Saga/Gamedirectory inside the wine prefix.
Game should work normally now, if not please comment / submit test results!
