Few interesting things missing in your report:
- what hardware
- what Linux distribution
- installation logs
- debug logs

Debian stable, testing, unstable?
Proprietary driver, nouveau driver, other?
I'm running Debian Sid on 64bit architecture and nVidia videocard too (Geforce G102M, latest proprietary driver Debian-packaged, currently 304.48), I'm currently redownloading and reinstalling in case the installer changed since I wrote the installation script.

But I'm still waiting for something resembling a log, "Wine seems to have crashed" doesn't cut it.

Restart the game with "Debugging", in side panel

Tools > PlayOnLinux debugger
Should give you access to both installation and debug logs of all what you installed.

I can reproduce the problem, it seems POL_Install_vcrun6 is currently broken...


Edit: Ok, POL_Install_vcrun6 generates an error message, but if I ignore it the installation seems to terminate correctly and the game is working.

POL_Install_vcrun6 has been fixed (it now matches winetricks behavior), so it should no longer report an error.
Still, if you selected to continue with installation when you saw that report, this is not the reason why the game fails, I still need logs.

Also, does running the game windowed help?
Right-click on shortcut > Configure Wine > Graphics tab > select "Emulate a virtual desktop", eventually select another resolution than 800x600 > Ok

You may suffer from the Debian bug described here (32bit libXi not in sync with X version):
http://www.playonmac.com/en/topic-8899-Diablo_3_Blank_Screen_and_Hang_after_hitting_Play.html

I basically cannot test fullscreen, my setup is multiscreen with Twinview and changing resolution / disabling one of my screens just mess ups my KDE configuration.

If upgrading 32bit libXi doesn't fix the situation, you can try running the game windowed at the resolution of your fullscreen.

i have already tried it but the resolution of game ιs 800x600...only the windowed wine display ia larger...
So which is the next move?I will try the libxi solution?

i found this in a wine forum
"Black screen problem still exists in Wine 1.5.3

A workaround is to minimize then restore the game window (say, using NirCmd) to
force a repaint."
how could i do these steps?I can not understand...

I wrote those words; and that's what the PlayOnLinux script does.

so whats next?

ps i installed gamecopyworld patch and now the game runs in full mode but when the mouse is at the edges of screen it moves far from game window!strange..
its a pity to run an original game with patches and cracks..
