Installing game, creating game, some playing.
What does not
Multiplayer Game (TCP/IP), scrolling the map.
The mouse is also very slow. The game seems to be running at like 5 fps.
What was not tested
MANY steps are required to setup correctly. Read the instructions to get as far as I did. The game would run but once you start scrolling a little bit the game would just freeze. I'm currently installing the latest Wine version. The one I had was the Ubuntu default - 1.0.1 - little old. So I will try with that and test out using different Windows dll's.

First install the game. That part was pretty straight forward.
Next install the 1.2 patch.
Download a no-cd exe. Rename civctp.exe to civctp.bak and copy over the no-cd exe. This is in the folder Activision\Civilization-Call To Power\ctp_program\ctp\
Configure Wine. Make it run in it's own window, no widescreen resolutions because it will just go back to a 4:3 resolution.
Note that the shortcut does not work. Don't know why, but I tried everything. To run the Civ you need to open up the console. Type "wine /home/
To get multiplayer gaming going in this game you have to download and replace 3 dll files in Civilization's Program Files folder. Download the files here (http://apolyton.net/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=101404&d=1112741693). There are instructions in the ZIP to tell you what to do, so just follow that.
