Additional Comments

Installation goes ok. If you get a "Cannot load pidgin.dll" error while installing, it's because you don't have the file mfc42.dll in your .wine/drive_c/windows/system32 directory. You can get this file from the Internet or from your Windows install disc. Do note that you need the correct version of the file for the Windows environment you are using in your "bottle" (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

Installation

The following DLLs are required to install and run Rise of Nations:

Online Multiplayer

You may have difficulty joining online multiplayer games.  To resolve this, read this article from the FAQ.

Cursor Bug

There is a cursor bug that can:

  • Cause the mouse buttons to not do what you expect; or
  • Cause a transparency problem with the cursor; or
  • All of the above

To work around this, edit the rise2.ini file (~/.wine/drive_c/users/{user}/Application Data/Microsoft Games/Thrones and Patriots Trial/rise2.ini) and set "ForceGDICursor=1".

Please report if you had to do this when submitting reports.
