Hello All

I have just started dabbling into the world of WINE.  I was quite excited to 
have one of my favourite games installed (Sea Dogs).

Before I tell you about the problem, let me tell you my setup.

I am using Gentoo Linux on x86 and my wine version is 0.9.8.  I installed WINE 
using "emerge wine"

I have XOrg v7 installed.

My NVIDIA driver version is 8762.

Direct Rendering is YES.

OK - the problem with SeaDogs is that when I am in the game and on the "world 
map view", whenever I encounter another ship what usually happens is that a 
dialog box appears that asks me if I want to either "engage" or "continue 
sailing".  As soon as this happens, the game screen goes black. 

Whilst the game is running and before this "encounter" the following messages 
are displayed on screen:
err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled texture min 6 !
err:ddraw:set_render_state Unhandled texture mag 6 !     <------------ long 
list of these

and at times:
err:ddraw:create_dib CreateDIBSection failed!
fixme:ddraw:Main_DirectDraw_CreateSurface failed surface creation with code 

In winecfg, the game is set to play under Window$98 and I only have sound on 
and music disabled.

Anyone else seen this issue?  

Thanks for your replies.
