Hi rogue,
can you add a possibility to use the version from steam?

I got only black screen with background sound. Is there any fix for that?

I run this script and got no sound, changed the version of wine to 2.9-staging, and now the sound is working.
the difference is the audio driver, when it was on 1.6, sound driver was winealsa.drv, but when chaged to wine's version 2.9, driver changed to winpulse.drv, and now sounds works!!!

Fullscreen wasn't working well for me.
So I sort of Improved it a little bit by making the game windowed, almost borderless and filled the screen with it, these are the steps:

Run FixAoFE.exe in the Forgotten virtual drive
Open POL and select Forgotten
Click Configure
Tab Miscellaneous
Click "Run a .exe ..."
Locate FixAoFE.exe in ~/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/AOE2_forg/drive_c/Program Files/Microsoft Games/Age of Empires II/age2_x1/FixAoFE.exe
Enable Windowed mode

Open Configure Wine

Open Graphics tab, and select only checkbox #1 and #3:

open the game and choose your desired resolution in options. This resolution will only affect in-game, it won't affect the menu.

I made a more detailed explanation here: https://madacol.blogspot.com.co/2018/05/configuring-age-of-empires-2-forgotten.html
