    Angry [Solved] Sim City 2000 Crashes

    I am using Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04
    I'm using the latest version of Wine as of June 4, 2009.
    I installed Sim City 2000 just fine, and it plays great, but it crashes (closes) whenever I try to save or save as.
    Anything I can do to be able to play my favorite retro game?

    If I recall correctly, SimCity2000 is a DOS game.
    You'll probably be better off playing it using DOSBox rather than wine
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install dosbox
    Give it a shot and let me know how it went.

    I also recommend running the DOS version of SC2000 in dosbox. that is what i do.

    Re: Sim City 2000 Crashes

    i didn't like the dos emulator that much. to overcome the crash when loading/saving, just set your windows version to NT 3.5 in the Wine configuration, as is mentioned in the bug report over at WineHQ. now the windows version is working perfectly.
