1: When you say 'latest version of Wine' I assume 1.1.41 from the Ubuntu repository. Am I right?

2: Have you tried starting the game from the command line to see possible error messages while running Wine in a virtural desktop?

3: Which graphics card are you using: nVidia, ATI, or other? Also, do you know the driver version for your graphics processor?

P.S. Don't post console output here, just summarize it.

I had the same problem. Refer to the How To about editing the wine registry. I tried that, and it worked like a charm

Was there a specific key?
