The answer above was deleted by a mod with the justification:

The workaround is Windows only!

Either this person doesn't know Wine's folder structure (drive_c) and/or doesn't know WineHQ from where the workaround was copied from (and linked to), a single test of the game in question: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=28925

Whether or not it works remains to be tested. I didn't test it and I won't. I don't buy Windows games. But in any case, there's no reason to delete an answer that faithfully reproduces a possible solution found by someone testing it and having experienced the same problem as the OP.

Your answer started with "Total War: Rome 2 is Windows only software. " Based on that, and the fact that the path you specified "drive_c/users//Application Data/The Creative Assembly/Rome2/scripts/preferences.script.txt" with the exception of "drive_c", led to the closing of the question, which was an over sight on my end, and I do apologize for that.

  • No worries, mate. For the record, it's how Wine works. "drive_c" is found inside .wine. It's like this probably to emulate the Windows folder tree the software expects to find. Commented Dec 6, 2021 at 12:58

    +1 this is the kind of classy, respectable mea culpa that we should all emulate when we make mistakes...which, as humans, we all inevitably do.

Sorry about that. I've undeleted your answer which seems to be on point, and in any case seems to have been deleted based on a misunderstanding as you say.
