If it worked before, it should work now. You need to be more specific. Without more detail about the specific issues and the debug output from those issues, we are just guessing. Right off, I would say make sure your system is fully updated, you have all of the 32-bit libraries for your system installed, make sure your AMD drivers are installed, as are the 32-bit drivers for your AMD card, and make sure that PlayOnLinux is fully updated to the newest version (4.2.5, available in the Download section).

For your distro, I do not know. I have never used it. You would need to check your the Elementary OS docs and forums, and you will need to see how to install the prorietary amd drivers and 32-bit libs for the graphics card, also likely included in the docs. Hopefully someone else here my have a more concise answer for you, unfortunately, with that distro, I do not know.

This distro is based in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS so I think it would be in the same way, also should i install an open source driver or the propiertary one?

I always install the proprietary one. If it is based off of Ubuntu, then you want to make sure that you install the following:

sudo apt-get build-dep wine
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install multiarch-support ia32-libs

If you cannot find 'ia32-libs', don't worry about it. Then you want to:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Reboot the system, and install the proprietary drivers from AMD's website. Go there, look up your graphics card, and download the 64-bit drivers. Download it, extract it to your Downloads folder, go to a terminal, and then:

chmod +x nameofamdinstallfilethatyoudownloaded
sudo ./nameofamdinstallfilethatyoudownloaded

During the install, it will ask you if you want to install the 32-bit libraries. Choose 'yes'. When finished, let it create a xorg.conf file (it should do this automatically. If you not, when you reboot, open the AMD control center, and set your resolution, and save, and reboot. Make sure to run the control center with admin rights.), and reboot. If you have any more issues with getting all of that installed, go to your distro's or any *buntu forum ( a google search will give a LOT of results), and get it working. Then, make sure that PlayOnLinux is updated, and try to fresh-install a game, and see if it works. 

If all of that does not work, then post up here with your full terminal output or debug logs from PlayOnLinux, so that we can troubleshoot further. Hope this helped. Good luck. :)
