what graphics card and driver are you using...? – fossfreedom Dec 31 '11 at 10:53
it's a nvidia gforce 220M and the driver is the 290.1 – Riuzaki90 Dec 31 '11 at 11:10
its good that you are using nvidia since wine games work best with nvidia. Is this a full screen issue? can you run the game in a window via winecfg? I would file a bug report at if you cant get it to work. – fossfreedom Dec 31 '11 at 12:17

Have you tried installing trough PlayOnLinux? It's a program that loads specific wine versions/settings based on what you want to run. I've used it for other games and for me works best than "bare" wine...

yes I've trien with playonlinux and at the end of the installshield the message is this...and the game it's not installed: link – Riuzaki90 Dec 31 '11 at 15:36
I can't really read the name of the program that crashed, I assumed you looked into it (and the fact that it looks like a 64bit executable)... – Nicola Feltrin Dec 31 '11 at 16:14
