please first try to run the game/wine using a proper setup with the
input-devices. as the device is HID and your stick and sim are more the
"sim" kind of rig you will run in less problems using the input
interface (proper button/axis detection, no implied deadzones, ...). you
should see /dev/input/eventXXX devices. also a trace to see what the app
does and why it fails should trace ``dinput`` (WINEDEBUG=+dinput ...)
