    Re: Rise of Nations

    Rise of Nations will not work happily on or happily with Cedega. I have heard some users that claim theyve gotten it to run under wine, but I havent seen any conclusive evidence to suggest that this is the case. As with most MSFT games (Halo comes to mind as being an example) trying to run them under wine/cedega has had limited result. But im sure that as wine improves, and in this so wll cedega/winex , this wll change with the eb and flow of time.

    Re: Rise of Nations

    I have installed Rise of Nations and Thrones and Patriots without any problems (Ubuntu Edgy and Wine 0.27), however it does not run (error reading xml file). I installed msxml.msi from the M$ website, but no luck. I tried to reinstall msxml from the RoN CD, but still no luck.

    Has anyone any idea of how to get msxml to work?

    Re: Rise of Nations

    I de-installed wine, removed my ./wine directory, reinstalled wine and installed Rise of Nation. Wine creates a new ./wine and installation works as before.
    After installation the installer asks if I want to play. Yes I do, of course!
    So I start Rise of Nation. This time no XML read error and the main menu appears. So far so good, but it is as far as it goes. The mouse cursor is there, the buttons light up under the cursor, but I cannot click the buttons in.

    Thats the end of the story, I guess.

    Not quite the end of the story.

    In the apps database on winehq I read that the buttons can be clicked if you hold the right mouse button pressed while left-clicking on the buttons.

    That works!

    However, I cannot change any of the drop down menu's in the single-player startup screen.

    I can play a game, though. But the resource area is black, so I cannot see how much resources are gathered. And that is a pretty essential part of the game.

    When I try to install the Thrones and Patriots extension the installer complains that PidGen.dll cannot be loaded. So I copied it from my Windows\System32 map to ./wine/drive_C/system32. Without any luck...

    The various versions of RON may have different compatibilities with wine/cedega. Bottom line is that despite it being on the cedega compatibility list, I couldn't get it (RONGold) to work there, nor with latest wine, so I went back to WinXP tail between my legs.

    This error should be avoided if you copy mfc42.dll from your windows installation to the ./wine/drive_C/system32 map, so I read on the Wine appsdb. I will try that tonight.

    Well, that worked. Thrones and Patriots is installed, but the same problems occur as with Rise of Nations alone.
