Hello everybody,
I saw an old post published in this website (link here) back in 2013 about installing Big Fish Games directly from the console.

System:Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (64)
Programs to run Windows apps:
Wine (Stable 3.0.1)
Playonlinux (4.2.12)

I was partially successful in installing the Big Fish Games (BFG) console, however I get an error near the end of the installation but the error does not show in the Playonlinux log. I installed it with Playonlinux.

The result is that I have the BFG shortcut on my desktop and when I double click on it, the app runs but the content of the window is completely white. I right clicked on the window and this is the source I'm shown (see attachment BFG_source). I'm also attaching a screesnshot of the desktop.

Apparently, you need Java to run this console. Does anyone know what libraries or files I should download with Playonlinux or Winetricks to make it work?

Thanks a lot!
