Can I play Medieval: Total War on Linux?

calumuk93calumuk93 Registered Users Posts: 1
I'm a huge fan of the first Medieval: Total War, but unfortunately I can't play it since I switched from Windows to Linux. Is there a way that I can still play it? I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and I still have the game and the Viking Invasion expansion in disc form. Thanks.

    hopefully this is still useful.

    I use wine version 1.8-staging and my os is lubuntu which is Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS. according to the command lsb_release -a

    in order to cycle though different wine versions I use play on linux.

    current glitches are that i cannot place my armies during battles. units can be set to attack but they cannot be placed in a position or advanced. The regular map runs fine and battles can be auto-fought.

    if anyone has a better way by all means improve my method.
