If it's the configuration that's causing problems, have you tried 
winesetuptk? I use that, made generating that messy config file a very quick 
and simple task.

Btw, WineX 3 is in beta right now. I've not tried it (not a subscriber) but I 
assume it will be more stable and compatible than the current release. Maybe 
worth a try.

I do see, however, that Wine has a way to go before Windows can be 
extensively dumped by gamers.
