No, actually, the developers for the most part don't frequent the forum. 

As to why you can no longer play these games, my first guess would be this:

I don't use Ubuntu myself, but from reading the forum regularly, I get the distinct impression that 8.10 has lots of problems with Wine. 

As to practical suggestions (other than downgrading to 8.04): when you tried different versions of Wine did you reinstall the games to a clean wineprefix? For that matter, when you upgraded to 8.10 did you reinstall the games to a clean wineprefix? If the answer is no, then try that. Delete or rename ~/.wine and reinstall your games; a new ~/.wine will automatically be created. If you've tried that, and it didn't work, then post console output.
