I've been trying to play Pharaoh for a bit.
More of an impulse thing.
Currently on Arch , using Bottles.

Linux zeus 6.0.2-arch1-1 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Sat, 15 Oct 2022 14:00:49 +0000 x86_64 GNU/Linux
bottles 1:2022.5.28-5

The game works fine , but the animation for buildings does not play at all. As in a goldmine is working but there is no light or animation for a worker digging. This makes it a bit hard to get visual feedback if you are doing ok or not.
I set winecfg for that specific bottle instance to Windows 7.

Any thoughts ?
Has anyone else played this on wine/bottles ?
Are there any open source engines to play it ?

Did you try it? Is it really working fine? It seems the project is a bit too much in Work In Progress, but maybe I'm wrong.
Though I bookmarked it a while ago but didn't test it myself, I didn't have any issues for playing the game through Wine (with the GOG setup).

I'm curious myself how far along it is.

Using (or not using) the widescreen patches might make a difference.

You might also want to try turning csmt off. Instructions here (search the page for csmt).

Hi, I'm also curious to know if it worked.
