# Licence : GPLv3
# The initial version of this script was tested using the
# DVD version of 'SimCity 2013' bought in Sweden 2013
# with wine 1.6-rc2, xUbuntu 13.10
# The Origin version of this script was tested:
# Older Origin       with wine 1.5.28-Origin
# Origin with wine 1.7.23
# Origin   with wine 1.7.30
# Origin with wine 1.7.51
# This script mimics the HOWTO from the wine AppDB:
# https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=27821
# Check TROUBLESHOOTING there first, if you have any issues.
# Known bugs:
# * Origin needs Job Objects (a wine by POL using the patch
#   from wine bug #33723 would be nice).
#   Then this would work:
#   - Installation finishes automatically (no
#     "kill EAProxyInstaller.exe" necessary).
#   - Origin doesn't complain that SimCity is still
#     running after quitting SimCity.
#   - Update of "Last Played/Time Played" in Origin.
#   Otherwise AFAIK there are no big gains with this (jre).
# * Sometimes graphic glitches.
#   (I guess depending on certain hardware, jre.)

Sorry, I need to remove some history here...

Crashes just after selecting "Install from DVD ROM". Admittedly this is using the Deluxe edition, although the CD appears also to contain "Setup.exe" and "SimCity.zip", and was released in 2013.
