I can't help you, but I do have the same hard setup, I also use debian
unstable with wine daily build from, and I have the
same problem with Diablo II and Baldur's Gate! They install well, but
when I try to play, they change resolution and the story ends...

I couldn't find a solution on google and was beginning to wonder whether
I could really feel entitled to ask the question on the ng when I saw
your post...


PS1: I'm waiting for 20011027.033932 ... on a 56K modem it's long.
PS2: If anybody has any idea of a --debugmsg option to understand the
problem, I'm open to any suggestion!
