Very nice!

Here is some games information you may find useful:

== Big Fish Games client

winetricks -- gecko ie8
 * gecko -- suppress the gecko download UI, not strictly necessary
 * ie8 -- I find that with newer versions of wine (since the IUri
support?) IE8 works well for the client; for older versions of wine,
ie6 works.

PROGRAM = c:\Program Files\bfgclient\bfgclient.exe

== Bejeweled 3 (PopCap Games)

winetricks -- gecko msls31 riched30
 * gecko -- suppress the gecko download UI, not strictly necessary
 * msls31 -- suppress a "dll not found" error using native riched30;
works without this, you just get an annoying dialog box :)
 * riched30 -- the popcap game installer hang when viewing the license
agreement on recent wine versions (or recent popcap installers); this
prevents the hang []

PROGRAM = c:\Program Files\PopCap Games\Bejeweled 3\Bejeweled3.exe

NOTE: Bejeweled 3 crashes on exit (D3D reference error?) and then
hangs (audio thread deadlock?), but is otherwise very playable :).
