    Hello everybody,
    I am here for a question, already answered somewhere I'm sure, but for which I've never found a definitive solution.
    I am currently playing the game in win xp, dual-booted with ubuntu 14.04 (which I prefer more and more) on a quite old, yet sincere Pentium 4, 3Gb ram. In order to avoid to boot the pc each game session, I'd like to run it through wine / playonlinux.
    I found some videos showing gamers doing the thing, and some uneasy information on the wine site, too, which is not sufficient to me to make the operation working. I personally have one more complication in the fact that I originally purchased 2011's dvd, and then upgraded it to platinum via the 5 euros patch; so in my unsuccessful tentative ubuntu wine was trying to install the 2011 game, not finding the upgrading patch.
    If someone reading is acknowledged enough in the subject, please, would he (she?) spend half an hour in writing down a detailed (means: for dummies) tutorial about all the previous operations to do in order to play CXL on Linux?
    Thanks.

    but it needs more cpu power and more memory since You were running 2 OS at same time

    Another reason why I have not dumped windows. I love some of the Linux versions that are available though.
