This is my xorg.conf:

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"

If you downgrade your system you will loose all your data. You'll have to back your stuff up someplace.

darn...that will be 40GB just for my /home stuff -_-;;;;
isn't there another way to get the game work?
and if there isn't I have no choice but to delete the game and try it sometime else (FC4 maby...) I don't want to spend half a week burning information on CDs

The fix is quite simple. I play AOE2 on Mandrake every day, it's a bit slow but that's cuz of my PC. Jusy run wine empires2.exe -- -opengl. It should work. Same for cedega. cedega empires2.exe -- -opengl.

Hi Him,

I was wondering what version of wine you use to play AoE2. And do you also play the conquerors expansion or just plane AoE2?

Thanks.

I use the May build of Wine. And I play just plain AOE2.

Actually it's weird, I have gotten the game to work on Wine before. Though the text looks all fuzzy and the game is a little slow actually. Maybe get a Cedega CVS build and try running the game with that?

Hello Vegetassje (of moet ik zeggen Hallo?),

I love the game, and I would love to get it working back again on linux! Im using Fedora Core 4 now, the Wine version is 20050524. Age2_x1.exe runs, but only for the main screen. The font colors arent properly shown, the game settings interface are coming up even worse.... When I hit the Start game button, the game goes back to the terminal....

A shame it doesnt work, I was positively shocked the game runs already that far!

Is there anybody who has found the correct setup for the game so far?

Flo
