Installation Game play -Tutorial -Campaigns
What does not
Intro Cinematics Sound
What was not tested
Sound cuts out after a very short period of time. This causes the game to refuse to move between cut scenes, and to complete a scenario. Disabling sound with the +noSound option at invocation will remove this problem, however the cut scenes will still show... without subtitles.

These errors/problems have been reported on older versions of wine, but are listed here (along with possible solutions) in case they pop up again.
Problem: Flickering water and/or memory leak
Solution: Set graphics detail to low and increase your swap size.
Problem: MS EULA Appears below AoM logo on first launch.
Solution: Focus the window using the taskbar or Alt+Tab and then use Alt+A to agree.
Problem: You need MSXML 4.0
Solution: Use the version included on the install CD. Type "wine msiexec /i msxml.msi" to install.
Problem: The installer can't find PidGen.DLL.
Solution: Copy PidGen.DLL from the installation CD and place it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.
AoM installation may require:
If nothing happens after you click "Next" on the CD Key input screen, you may need this file.
Download this file from dll-files and place it in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32. Add a new override (see below).
Adding an Override
Run "winecfg" from the command line. Click the "Libraries" tab at the top of the window that appears.
Type the name of the library into "New override for library:" (type "pidgen" for PidGen.DLL). Click "Add",
make sure that "(native, builtin)" appears next to the library you just added. If it doesn't highlight the newoverride and click "Edit" select "Native then builtin" and click "OK" and finally click "OK".
