So I've playing a game in wine and its choppy, it was brought to my attention that I should try try (re-)installing the proper graphics and OpenGL drivers for your chipset. How do I do that

The intel drivers are bundled with the kernel. It will not help your situation

If your framerate is choppy then you probably have a multi-threaded app but wine is single threaded.

what app are you running?

The link below is to the WineHQ page for that game:

Bronze means the app/game barely works -- making installing it a waste of time. Silver means SOME functions work, but depending on what functions you need, that could be a waste of time, as well.

that program is tested with a specific version of wine.

You can test the newest version of the program to see if it works

No. That will not upgrade your system to another version of Ubuntu. It will update/upgrade what you have installed on your current system.

try a newer version of the game, or i guess you have to do the painful thing and compile the proper version of wine against your computer
