What works

So because of all these bad ratings, I tested it again on my computer with the newest wine version.

 Nearly every thing worked out of the box

- installing

- play battles

- play campaigns

 

also Barbarian Invasion works


What does not

- multiplayer 

But this could also be my fault or the  gamespys one. Rome always says that I haven't the correct key, but it should be a right key because this is an original.

Additional Comments

You have to make sure that you start with the lowest possible graphics settings, because on single setting (I can't remember) crashes the game. So start with the lowest and increase it when it works. "This was tested with an nvidia chip."

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

If you have any problems with playing Rome, you should try this:

  1. Use the lowest graphic settings, because one of them crashes the game
  2. Type wine regedit in a terminal. Then go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER / Software / Wine / Direct3D or create it if it doesn't exist. Now you have to add two new keys.DirectDrawRenderer with the string value opengl and VideoMemorySize with the string value of you graphic memory size, for example 512 or 256.

If you want to post a test please write in it, if you have an ATI/AMD,Nvidia,or any other graphic card, because they can cause different problems
