Using the Compiz Fusion Icon found in Control Center, which then appears on the right side of your panel after clicking in in Control Center, I switched my window manager to Metacity. WINE and Oblivion were much happier then. To prove that that is what did it (I thought it was because of the WINE upgrade at first), I switched the window manager back to Compiz, and the video problems returned.

Did you add the flag in your .pulse directory to turn off autostart pulse?

If you want to keep pulse you can try my post here (if using a
debian/ubuntu type OS):


Follow up to:

Open winecfg go to audio tab and make sure Alsa is checked and
Emulation is selected.

and see if that fixes the sound for you (don't do the compile pulse
etc.).  Some have said that allows sound in games with wine.  YMMV.  I
have to do the compile pulse thing to have pulse and sound in wine.
