Going with AoE, I have recently tried this with the same setup (except
for using 1.0-rc2). I haven't submitted these results yet as I need to
verify them on a clean setup without any "fiddling".
I1. wine /media/cdrom0/aoesetup.exe works, but running the game gives
a "no CD in drive" error;
I2. wine "d:\\aoesetup.exe" also works, and does *not* give a no CD error.
Therefore, you can get it to work without any configuration adjustment
R1. wine "c:\\program files\\...\\aoe.exe" causes an error about
failing to detect graphics card (see one of the threads on the forum
for more information);
R2. cd $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/... && wine aoe.exe works perfectly;
R3. wine winefile and then double clicking on aoe.exe also works perfectly.
There is the black text (difficult to read!) bug noted in the test
I suspect that the Silver rating is I1+R2 and the Garbage rating is I1+R1.

I think that may help in some situations, and would be good for
collecting information for use in bug reports, but I don't know
exactly how useful it will be. In this instance, it *is* possible to
get a good experience from the game, but you need to know the quirks
of that application.
I am going to write up the above once I have verified it on a clean
WINEPREFIX with no fiddling. Therefore, for me I'd rate it Gold, with
the black text on the mission objectives screen being the only thing
preventing it getting Platinum.
