doesn't civilisation 4 have a linux port anyway?


i personally think people shouldn't use cedega, it doesn't help anybody in the long run. if you want good game/windows emulation use the money you were going to pay for cedega and donate it to wine (or buy cross over office).

If you install the .deb (sudo dpkg -i cedega_X.X.X_i386.deb) you'll find cedega launcher under games.
