Hello fellow Linux gamers!

Here you’ll find scripts allowing you to build packages for Debian, Arch Linux, Gentoo and any derivative (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Linux Mint, etc.) from your installers for Anno games.
You will then be able to easily install these packages with you favourite packages manager.

Download links and usage instructions can be found on the following pages:
Anno 1404
Anno 1503

We hope you’ll enjoy the ease-of-use provided by these scripts as much as we enjoy writing and tweaking them ;)

Here you go for more supported games!

Salut camarades Linuxiens !

Vous trouverez ici des scripts vous permettant de construire des paquets pour Debian, Arch Linux, Gentoo ou n’importe quelle distribution dérivée de celles-ci (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Linux Mint, etc.) à partir de vos installeurs pour la série Anno.
Ces paquets pourront ensuite être installés facilement via votre gestionnaire de paquets habituel.

Les liens de télechargement et les instructions d’utilisation se trouvent sur les pages suivantes :
Anno 1404
Anno 1503

Nous espérons que vous apprécierez le confort apporté par ces scripts autant que nous apprécions les écrire et les améliorer ;)

Update

Anno 1503 is now supported.
Update

Add support for old Anno 1404 installer:
setup_anno_1404_2.0.0.2.exe
Where do I get these files from:

setup_anno_1404_gold_edition_2.01.5010_(13111).exe (MD5: b19333f57c1c15b788e29ff6751dac20)
setup_anno_1404_gold_edition_2.01.5010_(13111)-1.bin (MD5: 17933b44bdb2a26d8d82ffbfdc494210)
setup_anno_1404_gold_edition_2.01.5010_(13111)-2.bin (MD5: 2f71f5378b5f27a84a41cc481a482bd6)

I purchased the Anno 1404 Gold Edition from GOG.com but when I download it I get the file GOG_Galaxy_Anno_1404_Gold_Edition.exe

Thank you for your help!

Nevermind, I realized that I had to download the offline backup game.

That’s it, we don’t support Galaxy installers (and will never do, mostly for technical reasons).
I followed your installation steps and everything worked fine. However, when I want to start the game the window appears and then disappears again after a second or so without any error message or anything. Do you know what could be the problem?

I am trying to run it on ubuntu 18.04

I don’t own this game, so I won’t be able to help you.
But I’m forwarding this thread to the contributor who wrote the script for Anno 1404, maybe he will know what is going wrong.

Can you run the game from a console and paste its return here?

You just need to run the following command from a console:
anno-1404_venice

Hi anianruoss,

I'm still working on an update to the ./play.it script, but until then can you please try this and see if it fixes it for you?

WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/play.it/prefixes/anno-1404
rm -r ~/.cache/winetricks/directx9 $WINEPREFIX
anno-1404
winetricks d3dx9
find $WINEPREFIX -iname Engine.ini -exec sed -i '/DirectXVersion/s/0/9/' '{}' +

Hi emorrp1

Thank you for your help! I tried the steps you suggested and now the application starts and the sound is playing. However, the screen just stays black (the anno cursor appears though). What could be the problem here?

Thanks

You just need to run the following command from a console:
anno-1404_venice
I ran it from the console after the running the suggestion made by emorrp1 this is what it returns:

wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winemenubuilder.exe"

emmorp1 sent me an updated script, I’m going to include it on the website soon.
Once it’s done I’ll tell you so you can try again, hopefuly it should fix your issues.

Yes, the sed line fixes the immediate crash, but the winetricks line should have solved the back screen, can you try running it again, perhaps it has to be done after the sed:

WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/play.it/prefixes/anno-1404 winetricks d3dx9

Another option is to download the pending version of the script (EDIT: nvm, I see it's going to be merged)

Yeah, that's completely normal.

Update

Anno 1404
Fix DirectX-related early crash
I downloaded the new version of the script, installed it and still had the black screen issue. I ran this line:

WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/play.it/prefixes/anno-1404 winetricks d3dx9

and now everything works perfectly.

Thank you very much guys!
