    Game -Wine

    I have installed a game using wine. A few months back it worked great. I have had to redo it because of a fresh install. When I click it to open , it comes up and stays for a few seconds then disappears. What may be causing this to happen/
    Thanks

    could you start the game in a terminal window then write the output you get? =)

    Just to be a little more specific, the proper usage of Wine is like this:
    Code:
    cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/game/directory/
    wine game.exe
    Change the "game/directory" and "game.exe" to match your actual game. If you run the game like this, any error messages produced by Wine will be output to the terminal, which you can then copy/paste here. Please make sure you use the forum "[code]" tags when you post the output, it will make it much more readable.

    Try to run it from the terminal and see what error messages you get.

    I assume that now you are trying to run the game with a newer version of Wine and maybe it does not work with it. Sometimes this happens with Wine. A newer version of it breaks some games that worked with the previous version. It's rare, but it happens.
