This is the bundle set from Atari featuring the Play the World and Conquests expansion packs.
Game installs and runs. It takes some tweaking in Wine to get it operational. The game runs native 1024x768, so creating a Wine Desktop matching those settings fixed a lot of my issues. (there are ways to modify the .ini file to permit larger resolutions, but the game runs fine at 1024x768). The intro "splash" screen from 2K Software doesn't display, but I can hear it. After that, the game loads and plays ok.
What does not
Sound in game is glitchy. It plays fine for a while, then starts looping. It hangs fairly often. The way I fixed it was going to preferences in game (ctrl + p) and turning off music and sound and then turning them back on. It's only a temporary fix and it happens frequently.
What was not tested
Didn't try the editor or any other modes of play. I loaded 1 game and it came up just fine, even on this old machine (2007 Sony Vaio).
Will continue playing around with settings to see if the sound is able to be unglitched. Can't stress enough ***PLAY IN VIRTUAL DESKTOP EXPLORER MODE SET AT 1024x768***
