Creating game, loading game, almost all gameplay. Also, surprisingly, I got multiplayer gaming to work. Directions on how to get that working are of course in the how-to note I wrote.
What does not
scrolling, sadly it's that last stupid bug I need to work out.
What was not tested
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.

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.
