    Hello,

    If you havn't done it you may want to run winecfg first to set wine up;
    Code:
    wincfg
    Then;
    Code:
    wine /home/daniel/Downloads/FILENAME.EXE

    | ASUS Nvidia 1070 8 GB | SSD 250 GB | HDD 1 TB |


    My favourite place of all, is the closet in the hall

    Most Windows programs, if they work acceptably, require special settings in WINE to work best. "game" isn't sufficient for anyone to point you to a guide specific to that "game." It is different.

    winehq often has setup instructions. https://www.winehq.org/
    PlayOnLinux often makes installs and running easier. http://wiki.playonlinux.com/index.php/Main_Page
    There are other tools to make things easier like Lutris. https://lutris.net/

    Most games that "just work" with WINE are really old. Also, there are many, many, many, that nobody has figured out how to get working yet. Sometimes WINE doesn't have required capabilities for some programs to work. Years ago, I needed a Windows program to work under WINE. That program used ocx libraries, but the ocx support hadn't been created in WINE at the time, so it didn't and wouldn't work.

    It is a "nice surprise" when a program works well under WINE, IME.
