I play with an ati hd4650.
i've followed these instructions from above :

winetricks d3dx9 vcrun6 vcrun6sp6 vcrun2003 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010

don't install directx or vcrun2008 from the game dvd

winetricks ddr=opengl (higher refresh rate)

and in games I've set all graphics to "normal/medium", if you set it too low or too high, you can't play because of glitches.
