Additional Comments

Gonna have to report a bug. //Copied from my last test 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. On the reason why multiplayer gaming now works: Activision released to the opensource community the network dll's it uses for 20+ old games they used for multiplayer gaming. Well, they those dlls have been fixed and work absolutely wonderful now. So, if you are playing the game on Windows and want to play it in a LAN setting I DEFINITELY suggest you download these dlls.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

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//.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Activision/Civilization-Call\ To\ Power/ctp_program/ctp/civctp.exe" without the ". Alternatively you can write that line in a file, set it as executable, and just double click it to run the game so you don't have to do so much typing. Also you can go through all the folders and double click the civctp.exe file in the ctp folder to run the game.

 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.
