Also, doing so completely messed up my screen resolution and I was forced to CTRL+Backspace to get back to the graphical environment (using XFCE4, maybe this is working better with Gnome?). 'wine (...)\SbzEngine.exe' doesn't help you launch the game either.
What was not tested
Anything related to the game.
Maybe it's worth giving it a shot again in a few months - more like six or seven.

You can use some kind of a bottle-systems (or whatever it is called) by installing diffrend programs in diffrent dirs. To create, use a command, for example: 'env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_mygame winecfg', then you can set it, however you want, and install game to this specified dir for exampe by typing 'env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_mygame wine setup.exe'. This makes few .wine_xxx dirs in your home dir, but you have sure, that one app doesn't for example errors of the other, or that is failure of registry (you can always delete all registry files without risk deleting other apps informatios).
And yes, it is what I meant by installing the game in clean WINEPREFIX dir. The best is to remove ~/.wine, then winecfg, and then install.
Getting 1.0 to run.

Unfortunately, I only have the 1.0 version, that wouldn't run due to ``This application requires graphics driver support for OpenGL 1.3'' error.
I couldn't install patch 1.1 due to the ``I agree'' button in the EULA never activating (but this deserves a bug filing of its own).
I found that the demo version of the game has a working version of RndrGL.dll, so downloaded the demo, copied over RndrGL.dll from ``Riddick EFBB Demo/System/Win32_x86'' to ``Riddick EFBB/System/Win32_x86'' and everything worked.
Had the same inexplicable problem running it from the shell. Also couldn't get Win32_x86_SSE2 and Win32_x86_SSE to work, but the performance is great anyhow.

Ubuntu 8.10. Newest Wine. Works suprisingly well. Installation flickers but works anyway. As above, just double click "System\Win32_x86\SbzEngine.exe" in your file manager. Sound shutters a bit with 3D sound enabled. On my radeon 9600 pixel shadder 2.0 is enabled by default. Runs around 20+ fps. I have finished half of the game and no problem so far. Vive le Wine!
