Re: sanandreas in ubuntu 12.04
Getting Windows games to work well in Wine is a LOT more involved than just running the installer.
Your best bet is to go to the WineHQ website, the application compatibility search tool, and search for the games you want to play.
You will find ratings there (from Platinum -- every works, to Garbage -- nothing works) and test result from other folks who have installed the games.
I looked up the games you mentioned, and some are rated Garbage.
Ubuntu 12.10; Mint 15; MS Win7 & Win8.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
