like Stefan i would also consider this more like a problem with the
installation? i also run all the games on a opteron box with 64bit
gentoo and manual compiled wine. i had no problems as i switched last
year from the 32bit platform other then the problems i had beforehand.
although anno1503 is the only game you mentioned, that is also on my
list - beside that i know the following games work: black mirror, nibiru
(demo) il2 (stormovik, foreign battles, aces, pacific fighters), jagged
alliance 2, grand prix legends, baldurs gate2, planescape torement - and
i have problems running ankh, raven shield, richard burns rally.
