    The Sims 3, with a bizarre issue.

    So I tried to install The Sims 3 from a disc, onto my laptop (which runs 11.10, just fyi). I used Wine (like you do) and it came up with this issue:



    I have no idea what to think about it, or even really what to do, since I can't read the text. I'm guessing it's some kind of graphics malfunction but I wouldn't be surprised if my computer just didn't want to run The Sims from a disc.

    Anyway, your input is valued and appreciated.

    I had the same issue and drove myself crazy trying to fix it. Turns out all I had to do was install driconf, open, select the 'Image Quality' tab, and then set 'Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available' to 'Yes'.
