I made some progress. When WINE installs Creatures 3 it creates the autokill
command within the shortcuts. But since that doesn't work in Linux the game
just won't work.

WINE really needs to be able to detect commands in shortcuts and replace them
with working equivalents on install.

I solved that problem by replacing --autokill with nocheck

However, now I have a new problem. The game requires High Color 16-bit to run
and Ubuntu doesn't seem to have a way to switch that. I found a command:

sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

where I could manually change a 24 to 16. But it didn't work. And even if I do
find it, why can't WINE just have a program run in predefined settings each

Anyway, still can't get Creatures 3 to run now because of this problem.
