If Wine is set correctly then check the game's settings to see if it
changed video settings in response to the change in Wine.

Jack audio is just another sound system option.  Try changing to only
Alsa or only OSS.  Also try different settings for emulation and
acceleration.  If possible, disable sound in the game to see if the
problem goes away.

This will change all file ownership to "username" and "usergroup"
except for some links in ~/.wine/dosdevices (don't change those unless
they point to directories already owned by the user).

If none of this works, rename the .wine directory and start a new
one.  Just run winecfg and it should be created automatically.  Then
pick reasonable settings for video, audio, and drive mappings and try
installing the game again.  Don't override any DLLs initially.
