News

Anno 2070 is back + other Uplay games!

Great news! In the latest Wine Staging, the games who earlier didn’t start anymore (Rayman Legends, Flashback, Anno 2070 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, are now working again! I updated these ports with the Wine staging 2.8 engine and now things finally are starting getting back to normal for Uplay. Of course there are still some client bugs like: Images of game covers or loading for ages and when starting an install it may take up to 5 minutes before the install/download starts, but hey, it’s a one time action (downloading/install) only ;) We hope to get those Uplay client bugs soon fixed as well.

By assigning certain crew stations to be manned by the “virtual crewmen” the player can hand off various functions for the simulation to manage.

The player could choose to monitor every single crew station himself or choose to just command the platform and to let the A.I. do the rest. Auto-crew control is dynamic so the player can enable or disable this feature for every crew station modeled in the game.
