Hello together,

I am on Arch Linux (Kernel 3.14.6) and have wine-1.7.20 installed. My POL version is 4.2.2.

When installing Age of Empires I select "Install > Age Of Empires II: The Age of Kings > Install > Next > Use CD-Rom(s) > Next > Next > Other > /media/AOE > Next" and I get "Error: Unable to find the CD-ROM!"

I have the Age of Empires Ubisoft Edition, which has a different CD-Layout as the default CDs and I suspect that this is the problem. Is there a way I can take a look at the script that is used to install Age Of Empires 2: The Age of Kings?

 

Thanks in advance,

Alex

Hello again,

I found the script I was looking for here: http://www.playonlinux.com/en/app-1799-Age_of_Empires_II__The_Age_of_Kings.html

And as I was suspecting, the script is not programmed to handle the layout of the Ubisoft Edition. The following shows the layout of the Ubisoft Edition. Files under FR/SP/UK are basically the same as the DE files.

Adapting the two lines in the script that deal with checking if the right CD/DVD is present, I was able to install and play the game as expected. If you need more information don't hesitate to ask.
