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 the window where the action should be is black after that:

Is this a problem with wine, with the game or with Ubuntu?

How can I fix it?

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 ;)
