I've been having troubles with AoE so I completely uninstalled and reinstalled everything. This includes the 114 AoE and 103 AD patch.

Unfortunately, this didn't help anything. I open AD with PlayOnLinux, and it hangs on the splash screen.

Asian Dynasties is using Wine 1.1.34 with overrides of
*msvcrt (native, builtin)
devenum (native)
msxml4 (native)
quartz (native)

I have no idea how to get wine output through PoL; I'd put it here otherwise.

Thanks for any help.

Please can anyone help? I'm sick of this bullshit not working. First it works, then it doesn't. What the fuck?

Well yeah know what? It works. I have no idea how or why. I just restarted my computer (for the 14th or so time) and it just worked. Maybe I didn't do a restart after the installation. That's the only thing I can think of. But there ya go.
