I try to get Anno 1404 running on pol. The known DirectX-problem is solved by modifying the engine.ini: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=17167
With 1.7.33 64 bit, the game runs great at first (little slower than on windows, but no problems)
In an longer endless game with more and more buildings, problems start to occur: At first, the screen turns black randomly after autosave, but you can restart the game and reload the last save succesfully. With even more buildings on the map, random crashes occur...
I have tested: 1.7.3, 1.7.33: Problems like described. 1.7.35: Problems like described above AND graphic problems with water.
