I was looking through my old PC games the other day, and noticed a copy of Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition. I decided to install this through Wine on Linux. The first disk install went fine, but when prompted to insert Disk 2, it would not read the disk.
One way around this is to load Wine in windowed mode. To do this this enter winecfg from the terminal, then select the graphics tab and check the Emulate a virtual desktop box, click OK.
After this re-install Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition, and when it asks for the Disk 2, simply go to your Linux file manager and click on the CD/DVD drive with Disk 2 inserted. What this will do is mount the drive. You should then be able to continue your installation.
So that you don't need to keep inserting the disk to play the game in the future, see if there is a patch NO-CD path available.
Sim City 4 Deluxe works without any issues in Linux. The game might be old for today's standard, but it is still fun to play.
You can pick up Sim City 4 Deluxe Edition box version from as little as £4.00 these days, through platforms like Ebay.
