RE: Black screen

Had you tried to track this down?
What's about other OpenGL applications, are they working fine?
What's about other windows games under Wine?
Had you turned Compiz (or any other compositing window manager) off?
Had you tried to play a bit with advanced Wine direct3d settings like OffscreenRenderingMode, TargetLockingMode, e.t.c.?
I still can't reproduce the problem on my box under Ubuntu 10.04, Ubuntu 10.10 and Linux Mint 9. I've got nVIDIA GTS 250 + latest available drivers from nVIDIA site (i.e. I don't use pre-packaged drivers from the repos). So the problem might be in something different then OS vendor/version + nVIDIA drivers. It might be more specific to the wine build (I use self-compiled wine for tests) or to the kind of the GPU you have.
