Thanks.
I found CZ_karyk topic on "AoC on voobly in linux (complete guide)"

I think it's something with the directplay. For some reasons I can't install it..

Game Diagnostics:
Code:
Game version is '2.0a-VLY' Checking DirectPlay libraries... Looking for dpwsockx.dll... Failure! DirectPlay failed to load properly. This is probably an OS installation bug. You might need to reinstall your operating system. Windows 8.1 and later users can install DirectPlay through Control Panel -> Programs -> Turns Windows features on or off -> Legacy Components -> DirectPlay.

All aoe2 games work very well.. but not on voobly

Ok I spoke too fast. Looks like the problem was coming from the fact that I was using wine 64-bits and not 32-bits, cuz now it works like a charm. Still have to see if I don't have connection issues. The only thing that I regret is that the mouse in AoC is much less smooth when playing within Voobly than without. nvm, not a big deal, but if anybody has an advice (I'll keep looking for the best DirectX and Windows Compatibility options), it would be welcome!

(nb: Actually I already did a topic on this issue there ( https://www.voobly.com/forum/thread/253679 ), but seems like it's not completely solved even with Calvin's advices ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

edit bis: sorry for being off-topic

Cheers ;3happy
