Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition Linux DXVK Wine – how to play this game on Linux.

Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is a game developed by Forgotten Empires, Tantalus Media and Wicked Witch and published by Microsoft’s Xbox Game Studios. It’s obvious the game will never see a native version but it runs very well on Linux. Read on and you’ll learn how.

For this game you’ll need Wine-Staging 4.19 or newer, DXVK, and Visual Studio 2017.

If you don’t know how to setup DXVK, you can follow our super easy DXVK installation guide.

If you use more than one wineprefix, you can export the current one with:

export WINEPREFIX="/path/to/your/wine/prefix"

You can check if there is vcrun2017 installed. If so, uninstall it:

wine uninstaller

Amd search through the list of installet applications.

With DXVK installed you’ll need to install Visual Studio 2017. It’s easy as:

winetricks -q vcrun2017

You can also start Winetricks UI and install it with a few mouse clicks.

Installing Visual Studio 2017 will change the Windows version to Windows XP. To change it back to Windows 7, issue the following command:

winetricks win7

You can also start Winecfg GUI and set it with the mouse:

We’re almost there. As a last step we have to download the Windows ucrtbase.dll (x64) library and copy and overwrite it to /prefix/drive_c/windows/system32/.

You should definitely use ESync – it increases performance by a lot!

Now you can start and play the game but keep in mind at start it will throw an error. Don’t worry though – hit the „Ignore“ button and you are good to go!
