Gates of Troy, Spartan now working with Wine 1.9 Staging

For the benefit of the one or two other Linux users out there:)

Spartan and Gates of Troy now run without issues on Linux with Wine Staging 1.9.20(and possibly earlier 1.9.x versions). Only thing not tested was the LAN game. I'm using the propietary Nvidia drivers and had set the game to 3D or it would crash when entering battle. If the 3D graphics don't look like what's in the games screenshots http://slitherine.com/files/games/s299_ ... 04full.jpg as in more primitive tree models and black squares for shadows install the libtxc_dxtn libraries.





Haven't checked Chariots of War yet but I assume it and Legion should also be working.

edit> Assumed wrong. CoW crashes when entering battle.
