to incorporate in bash+bat script workaround

Dear all,

I have very recently joined the legions of excited PlayOnLinux users. I have installed and largely troubleshooted Myst Online Uru Live again (Moula) which surprisingly runs smoother than it does on my windows partition directly. The only issue I have is that it does not register my enter key for chat most of the time, which breaks the social features of the game. 

I have found a workaround for this issue: if I configure the virtual drive the game is on and start a wine cmd prompt, then navigate to the directory and start the game from there, the problem does not show up. To that end, I have written a quick batch script to directly get to the dir and start the game, but I am lazy, and would like to combine this into a bash + bat script to just start everything in one go.

Hence the question is, is there any way I can call POL from terminal to start the WINE desktop with a cmd commandprompt and execute the .bat file I saved in it's start directory?

Many thanks!


(I am running Xubuntu 16.04 with Wine 3.0-rc6 in Windows 10 mode via PlayOnLinux 4.2.10 on a Dell Inspiron 15 7548.)
