If your game looking for a particular device with specific name then it won't work on Wine. Linux drivers add manufacturer name at the front of the device name. There is nothing Wine can do about this. Ex:
On windows: "Logitech MOMO Racing USB"
On Wine: "Logitech  Logitech MOMO Racing"

Doubt that will help. Native dinput doesn't work with joysticks on Wine. The hardware interface completely different.
