Looks like I have some problem here. I'm trying to play some games on my notebook with Ubuntu 12.04. But all games I treed to play have dark textures. 2D objects (like menus and buttons) are NOT affected.
Try updating graphics drivers, which is done by adding PPA repository. Most popular is Xorg-edgers, but this sometimes breaks system, because it influences on many components. I rather use OIBAF updated video drivers, which only updates graphics https://launchpad.net/~oibaf/+archive/graphics-drivers/ Read here more. And don't forget installing S3TC (libtxc-dxtn0), to use "patented" textures comression (this might be problem with black or missing textures)
First of all, make sure your wine is up-to-date.
Copy and paste this on the Terminal:
After that run the game using
If you prefer, put this command in
I'd had a similar problem with my Intel GMA4500 (Laptop too), and that fixed it.
PS: Make sure you have driconf installed
I was able to solve the problem simply by switching to Kubuntu. It solved the 3stc rendering issue using its Plasma desktop - aimed at making 3-D games run better - and made a huge difference with LOLegends.
