FMS is a popular simulator for practising flying model aircraft. It's written for Windows and is free to download and use.
After reading about a way of getting the recommended Version running in vista I decided to try and apply that same solution in Wine.

After installing FMS Version 2.0 Beta 7 and dumping d3drm.dll in the same directory I found that it almost worked. My el cheapo Esky USB controller was recognised and calibrated OK. The plane took off and flew but only the top 20% of the screen was was being animated. The bottom 80% stayed frozen.

What else can I try to get the video working properly?

I'm using Wine 1.1.2 Ubuntu Hardy 8.04
