Multiple games suddenly not working in a similiar fashion

Around the day before yesterday most of my Playonlinux games stopped working.
I'm using Archlinux with openbox.
The main game I'm concerned about is WarThunder, which is the game I first noticed not working upon further checking I discovered that World of Tanks and League of Legends show similiar problems. Somehow Starcraft 2 WoL is working perfectly (except screwing over my sound from time to time, but I think thats a different matter)

The problem in all three cases is that I start the game, the launcher works perfectly fine but then after clicking on Play it crashes.

- In WarThunder I get a black screen and even after prolonged waiting nothing happens.

- In World of Tanks the WoT window opens for a short time then closes again

- In League of Legend it just gives me this error http://i.imgur.com/YtPpwLZ.jpg with the following details http://pastebin.com/TwzkJWEE

The respective log files from POL are:

Warthunder: http://pastebin.com/dFtybUgE

World of Tanks: http://pastebin.com/n7z8VwFw

League of Legends: http://pastebin.com/NuWUgVG1

This problem might be related to this http://www.playonlinux.com/en/topic-11637-Nothing_is_working_anymore.html , it occured around the same time and possibly also after a system upgrade.

From what I've read so far it might be a problem with 32-bit libraries the first line of the League of Legends Error details also hints at that.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Could be the same problem, as in neither case there's anything in the logs.
Then again for the same reason it could be totally different cases ;)

Are there maybe any better logs which might yield answers?
There has to be some way to find out what went wrong.

I think the next thing I'm going to try is getting War Thunder running without POL, that seemed to work for the other guy.

EDIT: Okay I installed War thunder in a 64 Bit Windows environment or whatever that is in POL when you setup a virtual drive and now War Thunder is running perfectly, even better than before where I had crashes after loading.

Hey EgoArmee, not sure if you have been paying attention to my thread


but Daerandin was able to solve the problem. Downgrading pulseaduio, libpulse, and lib32-libpulse fixed everything for me.
