Additional Comments


You probably need to install directx9 with winetricks.Not sure if the directx installer works fine. I directly install it with the following comand:
$ winetricks directx9

In winehq explain how to install gameranger: You need to install mfc40 mfc42 and flash with winetricks

The widescreen can be, with uniws.exe. Rename speed.exe to speed2.exe,patch the game as need for speed underground 2, and rename back to speed.exe
