Ahhhh ok thanks for the info. Very very interesting... So an openGL problem. Well the only reason I thought the issue had something to do with wine is because CxG uses wine to handle its graphics. Like I said, I got two different results using CxG and VMwF and knowing that the hardware does support the game, I assumed that if wine's rendering could be tweeked, everything would be all good.

I actually am not running wine as a standalone, as I am sure you can tell I am a noob to all this. 

I want to put emphasis on the fact that I have sent inquires into codeweavers, but I just figured you guys would know wine better than they would, and could best let me know if there was a fix in wine I could make to get the game running (I am under the assumption, and have a hunch that there is).

Thanks so much for your responses, you guys are really helpful!
