Installing the game (works perfectly!)
Playing the game (except from some wrong text colors and a little slow (still playable) but dont you will need a no cd crack to be able to play it cause it won't detect your cd.
What does not
Not sure, haven't had time to test anything else except installing and playing.
What was not tested
Network play etc.
If someone found out the cause to the somewhat down-slowing ingame this game would certainly have a platinum rating ;)

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.
If the game does not recognice your CD, you may need to use a crack. This may or may not be legal, depending on where you live.
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.
