Additional Comments

I tried launching the game without the launcher, with no difference. Ends with a stacktrace before anything happens. in Desktop Mode I briefly see one of the four or so splash screens, followed by the aforementioned crash / stacktrace. I applied d3dx9_26.dll and xinput9_1_0.dll like in the tests before. Also the launcher seems to take an unusually long time to appear, while the background music starts playing well in advance. I think on earlier Wine versions, the pre-game config did work better. Not entirely sure. Final note: the game runs on a version of the Aurora engine that is newer than Knights Of The Old Republic and more dated than the Aurora engine used in Neverwinter Nights 2. Mind you that these are two games which now work on Wine. I really wonder how Jade Empire can be so different.
