I installed PlayOnLinux and manually installed a game. The game runs just fine, better than in Wine alone, but sooner or later it crashes. Most of the time only a few minutes after I run it, sometimes (rarely) it lets me play for an hour. About half of the time my screen goes completely black, and I have to restart the whole computer. The other half of the time only the game crashes, but it cannot be run again until I restart, and I noticed that after it crashed, video won't work in VLC. It opens, it has sound, but the window is pitch black. This issue also resolves if I restart. I played around with registry and configuration, nothing helped.
I use PlayOnLinux 4.0.14 and Wine 1.3.28 in it,
Ubuntu 11.10 and Gnome,
and my laptop:
Memory 2.9 GB,
Graphics Intel® 965GME/GLE x86/MMX/SSE2
If you have any idea how to fix this or even why it occurs, I'd really appreciate your help. Please let me know if you need any further information.
