I'm using Cinnarch with Kernel Linux 3.7.10-1-ARCH and GNOME 3.6.2

As far as I know this is basically Arch Linux with Cinnamon on top and some neat user-friendly stuff included (like PacmanXG4)

The distro came with mesa 9.1.2 installed and I wanted to try wine to see its performance. I installed The Last Remnant, the game booted up and there weren't noticeable graphical bugs, the game ran fine except for the very poor frame rate.

So I decided to install the proprietary drivers to check the difference between Windows and Linux using Wine. Of course I had to unfortunately downgrade xorg from 1.13 to 1.12.4 and finally proceeded to install javascript:nicTemp(); from AUR. Everything seems to have been installed properly, i followed the wiki javascript:nicTemp(); and I think I blacklisted "radeon" correctly. I also disabled dynamic kernel mode setting too. CS: Source and TF2 have great performance :D

The problem is that now the game doesn't do anything after the splash logo. It seems to freeze! I installed it using the installer provided by PlayOnLinux, and I followed the HOWTO javascript:nicTemp();
Well mostly... I don't understand the "OpenAL" part. I can't find any .alsoftrc anywhere and creating one doesn't change anything :\\ (I have 'lib32-openal' and 'openal' installed)

Changing between Wine 1.3.23 and 1.5.25 doesn't solve it either.

This is the log when booting with 1.5.25 -> javascript:nicTemp();
This is the log with trying to config 1.5.25, there is no sound driver nor direct3d options -> javascript:nicTemp();
This is the log when booting with 1.3.23 -> javascript:nicTemp();
This is the log when trying to config 1.3.25, I can test sound (it detects ALSA) and have direct3d options -> javascript:nicTemp();

If someone could help me fix this that'd be really cool!

EDIT: Is it possible to make links like [url=something]smthg[/url] instead of having those "javascript:nicTemo();"?
