In *NIX shell back-slash has a special meaning (which MS missed the whole point about). You need to use a double back-slash if you need one. Ex:

wine UT3.exe -mod=..\\yx

If that doesn't work, you'll have to specify full path to "yx". You can find it with:

winepath -w ../yx



$ cd  ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/UT3
$ winepath -w ../yx
C:\Program Files\UT3\..\xy
