The initial splash is choppy, if you are seriously concerned about it you can abort and re-launch wine Civilization3.exe and it will play perfectly ...
The Sound quality is not the best, as in other versions or wine/civ3 updates the midi mixes do not blend and are choppy. (I recommend disabling sound completely.)
The game play is good, I played Civilization III for 2-1/2hrs w/o crashing... I tested All on board menus, Launched from Advanced Start,Quick Start, Scenario, and Saved Games, all performed equally.
What does not
Sound is still choppy
Game play is slightly sluggish
(I test everything from a Toshiba Satellite A55-S1063 Laptop, w/Celeron M 1.50GHz processor and a Intel Extreme Graphics Card, 248MB of Ram. Running SuSe 10.1 ONLY as you know.) Compared to CIV3's performance on “Windowz XP” it is not so bad...
Civ3Edit.exe is still not working, Could be a simple change in MS Versions, but for now it will go untested as I work on perfecting Civilization III's Game Play... until then the “WineX” Application Cedega is supporting Civ3Edit (and only that LOL)
What was not tested
Nothing went untested...
I Won't rest untill I get the sound, game play and Civ3edit working in Wine!
