Apologies if this looks like garbage I'm doing my first reply to the list
via this interface.

I don't believe installing directx is the right thing to do, especially if
it's a platinum rated game.  Admittedly I haven't done any reading on this
game, yet.

That seems like an error, you should be using the game executable, not that
wildcard I'm pretty sure.

Is there a possibility to finally run this game?

Seems like it should run with that rating, try starting over without
installing directx in wine if you are strapped for a starting point.   (rm
-rf ~/.wine will turf your existing configuration, you may want to mv it or
otherwise create a backup while you are experimenting).
