Hi I am was using play on Linux to run the game, if any other Linux users can offer any advice please do :)
Game loads sometimes, if deleted and reinstalled as 16 bit , but play on linux does not complete, no desktop icon gets created. If I close the game I have to reinstall and it does not always work. Thanks to any one for tips. ALSA has always failed not worried about sound.

Have a search in the game suggestions and similar subforums, there should be a post somewhere about how to play v&h on linux. By Paranoia I think.

I use playonlinux to install the game. It is a supported game and until the june 3 patch it worked flawlessly.
After that patch it didnt work. I could log in but then it would crash and return a "failed to connect to server error"
I tried to reinstall V&H but it failed with the message "cant find VHlauncher"
I downloaded the setupfile for windows and did a manual install (using playonlinux) and the game would run.
But when i closed the game i couldnt start it again.
Would start but then it would crash.
Reinstalling the game allowed me to start the game but i couldnt close it without having to reinstall.

Somehow i figured out that the game will start in fullscreen mode. ( i can then change resolution during gameplay)

So what currently working for me is this.
Download windows install file
Playonlinux
Install
Install non listed program (bottom left)
Point to the install file
Do a deafult install (note the search path below is based on my name and what i choose to name the install folder)

Start the game with:
/home/Illuthas/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/villagersandheroes/drive_c/Program Files/Villagers and Heroes VHLauncher.exe
On the small loading window check top right corner to make sure it's in full screen mode.
Play the game.

Sorry for being late to chime in. Illuthas is fully correct with how it works with wine at the moment. If only I had time to correct Arcadiens script on playonlinux.com, I would do so. But atm real life work doesn't give me that chance. Maybe after the next big patch.... I hope so.

Thanks for the replies, Im trying the reinstall path, many times ,my problem is that the install does not finish. I can still play as long as I do a reinstall every time after a complete delete and just leave the play on linux icon circling in the back ground . Once I close the game window or the play on linux window, I have to reinstall. If I leave the game at the log in window I can usually come back even after a few hours. Sadly the game will not launch from the vhLaunceher iether. So every day at present I reinstall as I have my morning coffee :)

Have you made sure that you dont change resolution and only use fullscreen setting?

it turned out play on linux had not deleted one of the virtual drives so I had two running at once, deleting both and reinstalling has made it work the way you posted. Thanks again. :)
