I ran The Sims Medieval script from install a program.  It got almost finished then wine said that it recived invalid parameters and crashed! I could run the rest of the script but of course the game was not installed.

Unfortunately not all of the scripts work. Specially if they were made some time ago.
I found that doing a manual installation gives me more success but also takes more time troubleshooting.

Most directx games require Windows Components like:

1. mfc42
2. vcrun2005
3. vcrun2008
4. vcrun2010
5. d3dx9

And setting your Windows version to Windows 7 in Wine configuration,,,
Make sure to use Newer Wine versions like 1.5.25

if the game launches and you don't see any text, try components like tahoma, corefonts, etc

Someone on WineHQ posted these settings in Display:
DirectDrawRenderer = opengl
Multisampling = enabled
OffscreenRenderingMode = fbo
PixelShaderMode = enabled
RenderTargetLockMode = readtex
UseGLSL = disabled
VertexShaderMode = hardware
VideoMemorySize = 1024
