HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
Use Wine version 0.9.36 or newer (version 0.9.31 or earlier also work)

To prevent installer windows from being hidden, change Wine's settings so that the window manager is not allowed to control Wine applications (can be done with winecfg).

In Wine versions prior to 0.9.17, elements such as taskbars designed to cover other applications are not hidden when Age of Empires II is run in full-screen. This can be fixed by not allowing the window manager to control Wine applications (can be changed in winecfg), or by changing the taskbar's options so that windows are allowed to cover it.

Multiplayer
To get multiplayer working, place the following DLLs in Wine's windows/system32 directory,  then start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for them: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
NOTE: the game freezes when exiting a multiplayer game.
