Age of Empires and Debian 7

With Debian 7 / Wheezy the support of Age of Empires 1 & 2
becomes much better.
The only thing to do is:
Installing winetricks :

aptitude install winetricks

and then install directplay with winetricks:

winetricks directplay

After this, you can play Age of Empires with Multiplayer, the sound works
and graphics works much better than with Debian 6.

The only problem is, when disconnecting multiplayer the programm frozen.
Best way is to open a shell before starting the game and then you can
kill it after getting the processnumber with ps -A .
