Guide to play on Linux (with Wine) or MacOS (with Wine/CrossOver) The mod should work on an emulated version of Civilization IV. This guide won't cover how to install Civ IV Windows version on these OS, just follow any other existing guide like this one (thanks to masaykh): http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=541004 The launcher is compatible with Wine/Crossover with the exception of the following modules: The launcher can detect updates but the updater doesn't work. The Asian patch cannot be applied, you should do this manually. Note: Under MacOS, the mod works under an emulated version of Civ IV for Windows, not with the stock Civ IV for Mac. How to install / update the game on Linux / MacOS ? Starting with rev913, published the 2015-03-09, the launcher and updater are 100% compatible with Linux (Wine) and MacOS (CrossOver). How to apply the Asian patch manually ? Open the file "Civ4BeyondSword_Asian.tar.xz" with an archiver program, then open the .tar file inside. Extract the executable inside next to the Civ IV BTS executable, in the game installation folder. You should then have Civ4BeyondSword_Asian.exe and Civ4BeyondSword.exe next to each other. IF YOU USE THE EUROPEAN/US VERSION: Make a symbolic link of the folder "Beyond the Sword" and call it "Beyond the Sword(J)". Make the same for "Warlords" and call it "Warlords(J)". Then, in the folder "My Games", in "My Documents", make a symbolic link of "Beyond the sword" and call it "Beyond the Sword(J)". IF YOU USE THE JAPANESE VERSION (FROM CYBERFRONT): In the folder "My Games", in "My Documents", make a symbolic link of "Beyond the sword(J)" and call it "Beyond the Sword". The launcher should now be able to launch the Chinese, Korean and Japanese versions of the expansion pack.
