has anyone managed to play a multiplayer game on AOE2 (or the expansion)? In my wine setup it only gives me an option to connect with DIrectPlay and I never even got that working under windows... I also have some minor mouse problems and no music (the latter also a bug in windows) but I can live with that...

You could try with the AoE 2 'HD' edition released on Steam for newer systems. It may work better in Wine since it was ported to DirectX 9. It's not cheap, though.

Thanks for the answer, I'd considered that buy but I mostly want to play LAN with a couple of friends and you can't do that with AoE 2 hd. I guess I'll have to use my old windows 98 system if I Want to play this game or just buy the HD edition
Wow, that patch looks as good as the HD edition. Thanks for pointing it out!
YOU'RE A GOD
this actually worked!!!!! I can't tell you how excited I am. The patch looks awesome I'd definitely like to have 300 population on age of empires 2 (1000 seems a bit excessive)
you're the best, thanks a lot, hope others see this cause I know other people have this problem too
