That's true (although it is now updated for RC1, unfortunately not in an encouraging way), but the existing entry explicitly says

Now you have to add two new keys.DirectDrawRenderer with the string value opengl and VideoMemorySize with the string value of you graphic memory size, for example 512 or 256.

Since this suggestion relates to Direct X's registry entry (which doesn't exist by default), and Direct X is where your issue lies, it's worth a try in the event that it helps. since it's easy enough to do.

My application says some DLL or font is missing. What do I do? (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#head-bb6a7a98ea5016383c4f81717063463e5217c3bf) (i.e., "Read the Wine F.A.Q.).

Sorry, don't know (not a Steam user), but you might want to consider uninstalling Wine and either 1. reinstalling the current version (since it seems to have misinstalled, given that the DX dlls have been steadily improving, but for you they're not found, which is ... odd, to say the least), or 2. reinstall a previous version known to work with the game.

Hope this helps.
