I am very new to Wine, Always have it install it, but never really use it. finally, few day ago. I install my very first software with Wine. It is a Game, and it run perfectly smooth, Wine is Awesome. However, I do run into some  little problems. 

Launcher: Wine automatically set up a icon/launcher on the Desktop for me, and it runs great, However, when i try to create exactly same Launcher with the exactly same command in the Menu. the Launcher doesn't work. 
There is what I use: 
env WINEPREFIX="/home/ioky/.wine" wine "C:\ODINSOFT\Foolish\FOOLISHGAME.EXE" 

When I run this command in Shell, here is what I get: 
fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x32f6ec,0x00000000), stub!
fixme:x11drv:X11DRV_desktop_SetCurrentMode Cannot change screen BPP from 32 to 16
fixme:imm:ImmGetDescriptionW (0x4090409, (nil), 0): semi stub
fixme:imm:ImmGetDescriptionW (0x4090409, 0x159028, 9): semi stub
the the windows close out.

Sound: This problem seem a bit weird to me. If I just start my computer without doing anything, the sound of the game work fine, however, as soon as I play a music player, in this case Audacious. The sound can only work when music is playing while wine start. If I stop the music and open the game/wine, The sound doesn't work. This is not only just happen to that game but the whole wine system. So now, I much play some music with the player, and then open wine in order to make the sound work.

Keyboard Keys: The game is am playing with wine are original full screen game. However, I used Emulate a virtual desktop to run it because the game is old, and it looks very bad with my 22" monitor. When I use the virtual desktop mod, the Tab key, and the ESC doesn't really work. It seem to work in the very few sec, if I am lucky, but It doesn't really work for long, and I don't know when exactly it will work. For the game I am playing, I really need those key to work out right in order to play. Those key only work in full screen mod. 

I understand that some of my problems/Question are not necessary a Wine Problem. But It would be great, if those things work out right. 

Thanks, Wine is great.
