Additional Comments

The game starts perfect, no problems to mention. I played a few turns in campaign flawlessly. Intro video is quite slow, and so is the animation in combat. I used the russian localised version, but I installed english one (there was a choose). I mention that as I saw people saying that the installation hangs.

HowTo / Notes


Update the game to version 1.03 to avoid the copy-protection (the 1.01 and 1.04 updates do not work).

Place the DLLs in this archive in Wine's windows/system32 directory. Then, start winecfg and add dll overrides (native, builtin) for the following DLLs: dplayx, dpnet, dpnhpast and dpwsockx.
After that, update your Wine registry by running 'wineprefixcreate'.
