Have you tried the troubleshooting steps and fixes posted on the ME AppDB page:

It should be noted that ME in Wine barely works in the first place, so you may not be able to get much past that error before something else stops you from playing.

Yes, looked there says mine OS is garbage and crashes during installer.. didnt happen to me just need to figure out how to get past this graphical error

Actually I was referring to the multiple posts there about graphical issues, some of which are solved by using some native DLLs, others that seem to be solved by setting the off-screen rendering mode to "fbo"

I'd also like to ask how you set this FBO? Wineapp is great for looking at peoples bug fixes, tips and tricks, but very very little on how to actually do those fixes.
