    Question 12.04 upgrade now probem with steam (wine?) video. please help

    Hi, just did the upgrade from oneric to precise and now when I open steam thru wine and try to play TFC the main selection screen (the guy firing a chaingun) comes up but none of the text selections (like check servers, quit etc) are viewable. i can hear the usual clicks if I pass my mouse cursor over that area and it even sounds like I click on them but it's no use because I cant see anything that would come up.
    I didn't have this problem with oneric and actually think the problem is with wine. I kind of remember resetting "something' in wine settings (i think was in winetricks?) when I first installed steam but that was a long time ago.
    Any help appreciated, i REALLY want to play TFC like usual...
    PS already deleted clientregistryblob and updated steam.
    thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I found that if I open the wine configuration and under the tab 'GRAPHICS' if I check the box that says 'open a virtual desktop" then it is fine but the window is small. i raelly need full screen for gaming.
    EDIT 2:Im pretty sure this problem concerns my video memory and wine, maybe winetricks will help but I dont know what to try.
