Works great thanks. Just one questions... out of interest I tried replacing wine version to 1.7.26 by changing this line WORKING_WINE_VERSION="1.7.26".

However for some reason this doesn't grab the mouse and so therefore on main menu if you move mouse around you can see parts of your desktop. I did checked winereg and the grab fullscreen is in there. Did wine change the way it handles grab fullscreen or something?

It doesn't really matter since this script works great so it not a big deal :)

Thank you for reply. Hm so it is a bug in wine?

It seems it has a regression with this game (but maybe because it fixes issues with other programs, that's why it's not so simple...)
https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=12599 has interesting infos, like "The menus, map and tip pop-ups keep resetting the mouse wrap. Every time you resume gameplay, you have to click once to wrap the mouse around the edges so it won't escape the window. Using the registry key "MouseWrapOverride" as "forced" will make the menus unusuable."

So I guess it must be that bug which is affecting mouse input
