    baldurs gate worked until wine update

    Hi guys,
    I am hoping someone can shed some light on this. I installed wine and managed to get BG working, eventually got sound and played for a day.

    Then the option came up for updates for wine, and although it wasn't broke i downloaded it anyway, now the game won't load save game or even start new game.

    Can i just downgrade to previous wine version that worked?
    Guess I should send bugfix a note too...

    Then I got carried away and installed dosbox, which doesn't want to play either.

    Love some direction, tired from endlessly reading forums

    Probably shouldn't apologise untill I sort out problem.
    Tried winecfg in terminal, and set up according to what i read. It worked!
    Then i accidentally closed the window the game was in and now it won't restart and this was the message in terminal:~$ winecfg
    X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
    Major opcode of failed request: 1 (X_CreateWindow)
    Resource id in failed request: 0x3000007
    Serial number of failed request: 13
    Current serial number in output stream: 15
    hmmmm...

    Any suggestions?

    Yeah thats the problem, there was nothing wrong with the game, but in my finite wisdom i downloaded it any way, hence the problem
