playing the game for a year
What does not
running the game without virtual desktop
Borders look strange
Some provinces have the wrong colour, i.e. on the political map LÃ¼beck is green and Mecklenburg cyan, while both are one country. Some provinces are drawn striped (meaning occupied) but are not occupied by an enemy. On the religion map europe is quite colourful, even if all countries are catholic.
Ships don't have textures and are drawn plain white
Quit to main menu resulted in a game crash
What was not tested
Only works when a virtual desktop is configured in wine. An override for d3dxof.dll was needed and additiolally msvcp60.dll had to be put into wine's system32 directory. Disabled sound in winecfg. Otherwise the game would occupy all memory when loading sounds.
