Installation. Gameplay (limited).
What does not
Starting a new game. Multiplayer inherently never worked, even for Windows.
What was not tested
The various levels of difficulty and campaigns.
Essentially one can install the game using the Wine Wrapper, but the game will NOT launch. So, to fix this, one must find and install the NO-CD patch (google it): installation is merely replacing the two main 1503Startup.exe and the annowelt.dll files. With the second CD inserted (or mounting an ISO using toast [I have v10]) the opening trailer begins and other items show. The main menu appears and the menu works normally. However, one CANNOT start a new game. However, the game DOES work otherwise. What one has to do is get ahold of a saved game (I had a game listed as "Last Game") and to load the saved game. I did so and was able to play a nearly new game. The gameplay is very clean and works just as well as playing on a Windows machine. I thus dub this "Bronze" because lots of alteration (and possibly torrenting) is taking place. Also, I am not aware of how readily available save files are for ANNO 1503 AD. I, or perhaps someone else may post a link to save files which relate to the start of a new game in ANNO 1503 AD for the various levels.
