What works

Installs with no problem. Then, running SIMCITY.EXE gives the splash screen, the main menu, and allows starting a new city. After selecting the city type, the menu disappears and nothing else ever happens. IOW, it behaves exactly like the description says it will.

The Urban Renewal Kit works fine.

What does not

Actually playing the game.


What was not tested

The main game itself.

Hardware tested

If you don't have a windows installation accessible from Wine, you perhaps forgot to create a [mci] section in system.ini fixme:wave:DSD_CreateSecondaryBuffer (0x403cde80,0x4069fc38,0,0,0x403ce844,0x403bccbc,0x403ce820): stub err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateWindow invalid window width -16 err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateWindow invalid window height -16 <--At this point I have started a new city and the menu has gone away. It will sit forever here. "ps -A | grep wine" shows wineserver and wine-preloader. I kill wine-preloader manually.--> Killed larry@SuSEWuSE:~/bin/simcity2k>
