Hi. Well the second error is obviously because of disabling opengl. What wine build are you using? how did you install it? (yum, aptitude, apt, self-compile?)

I use steam with my built version (directly from GIT) of wine and it works pefectly with steam. ALso using a native riched and the other requested dll's with winetricks worked pefect, heck, I installed all my games from steam, but I'm on Linux and I'm really not into MacOSX.

But I think that error is related to gfx stuff as I had similiar stuff with a game before.

Try steam with native COM with winetricks (MSDOM) but I don't think it'll work as steam tends to crash using it, still it is a good try and it would throw ole errors away (i think).

By the way, can you chat in steam? It's the only thing I can not always do.

Disable steam-community-ingame.

The scrollbars issue is odd and I think probably indicates a gfx problem (but are you talking about steam-like bars or theme-like bars?)
