i have Ubuntu 13.04, i have just installed Age of empires 2 HD on wine 1.5.29, i can start the game and open the campaigns but it displays a black screen after then:


is the problem from wine, or from the game or from Ubuntu? thanks.

That is a known problem, you have to put -nostartup in the launch properties/ commandline or your map will not render. For more information see the winehq database, which is better for help with wine gaming than askubuntu ;)
