HowTo / Notes

Wine versions recommended for The Settlers 3

The Settlers 3 works without major issues with all the current Wine versions.

Below is a list of versions with known major problems:

Performance issues

This game requires much more processing power than it should, so unless you are using a relatively fast computer, it may run slowly (Bug 32478).

The used graphics card may also be of importance here: with NVIDIA (binary driver) the game is the fastest on Linux, with INTEL the slowest.

A workaround which makes at least the lag occurring every few seconds go away, is to start Settlers 3 on 1 CPU only with:

taskset -c 0 wine S3.EXE

If you want to play online using the aLobby, you have to start the aLobby the same way:

taskset -c 0 wine alobby.exe
Multiplayer with aLobby bug on Ubuntu-Wine

Wine 1.7 packages from the ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa <1.7.34 are affected by the following bug: Because of that it is *strongly* recommended, to update to 1.7.34 or newer, when using that PPA.

Wine packages from other sources and self-compiled builds from the official Wine sources are not affected by this bug. Wine versions <= 1.6.2 Ubuntu packages are also not affected.
