There are only a few important things to directplay as far as I know.
 The first one is find a game that runs in wine and uses it, and works
 reasonably well single player but not at all multiplayer or online
 because of the missing things (fixmes on dplay in console). After you
 played the game a little bit, think of a plan on how you want to
 tackle this problem.

 Have you managed to compile a git version of wine yet?
