I have gotten to these steps and am not able to get passed the Audio Test in winecfg, nothing happens when i select one of the drivers. 

How do i add "-dxlevel 81 and -novid" to the TF2's launch options?

And i am unable to locate the steam install/hl2.exe file in the .wine folder. Even searching it comes up with nothing. 

I must admit I am a bit new to linux in general. 

I deleted the .wine and reinstalled my games and steam. I have Guildwars working without any problems after deleting .wine and restarting wine.

Is there anything i can post as results to help this go smoother?
