[Wine] Wine desktop emulation

if you don't like to read the reason of the question, skip the blue part ;)

i usually like to play older games with wine, and many of them are restricted to a screen resolution of SVGA or XGA ect. This looks of course incredibly bad on a Full HD Widescreen.

Some of these games offer parameters or modes to play them in windowed mode (DiabloII, ...), some of them do only support the ALT+Return method (which doesn't seem to work in wine?), some of them do neither.

Fortunately I can start all games on an emulated Desktop with small size

Question: is it possible to start wine with a parameter or prefix that makes it switch to emulated desktop mode? It's annoying to start winecfg to enable/disable it every time before starting a specific application :(

Kind regards, Snowball
