Hi Dimesio, thank you for the reply.

Is there some internal how-to on getting this game working? A man has to work with what he's got.

My wine version is 1.2 rc6 according to winecfg.

I was unable to get winetricks working. IIRC it gave an error about not being able to find the DOS directory. Instead, I installed the dlls as the linked page mentions - by downloading the linked files and placing them in the game directory. Have I done something wrong here?

I just gave the Virtual Desktop a try. Same error as before.My version is Civilisation IV and Beyond the Sword on seperate disks.

The popup box cites "Initialize renderer failed" which would seem to indicate an issue with direct x. Does anyone have suggestions on how to improve/fix this?
