  • Copy protection works in most cases, but there are certain kernels for which a no-CD patch is needed.
  • With Cedega versions prior to 4.3, sounds effects in the game are problematic - after several of them start, they do not end properly, and keep looping until the game is restarted. This is bad enough so that the game would be unplayable if the sounds were important to playing the game (as opposed to just being pleasant backround.)
  • Minor graphical glitches in a couple places.
  • Scrolling of map is slooow.
  • Some combinations of cedega and desktop managers may result in a black border taking up the top portion of the game window, with the actual game partially pushed down below the bottom of the window. Currently this issue is found using gnome desktop where a panel is located at upper edge of screen. Workaround for this issue is easy: just move your panel to the lower edge.
  • In some cases (Ubuntu Gutsy), window handling is totally corrupt. Use failsafe session to launch cedega.

Civilization III: Complete

  • According to the release notes, the installer for the 'Complete' edition for Civilization III does not work at all in Cedega. This is generally true, though there have been some confirmed reports of it working for some people some of the time. This issue is being looked into, and hopefully a workaround or proper solution will be found soon.
