Hello. A friend of mine gave me this game as a gift on Steam, sadly couldn't play it on Linux, so I made this script. May be useful to some of you (or if interesting enough to include it in repository, I can submit it). Mind, this is only for the steam version, I don't have any other versions.

Hi,
The script looks good enough, there's not much to say about it actually.
The only thing I can think of, is that you should never need both POL_Wine_WaitBefore and POL_Wine_WaitExit around a single POL_Wine call.
Both commands are actually very similar, in that they display some kind of "some program is running, please wait" message. The difference is that POL_Wine_WaitExit then also waits for Wine to finish.
So, if you're running a synchronous (blocking) POL_Wine command, you must use POL_Wine_WaitBefore so that the waiting message is around while the command is running.
If you're running an asynchronous command (non blocking) like when using POL_Wine start /unix (but it sometimes happens without that), then using POL_Wine_WaitExit is sufficient.
You can use both, so that the message really starts before the command starts, but usually the command gives the control back so fast that it doesn't really make any visible difference to the user.
At least it doesn't hurt to use both ;)

edit: any hints as to why the forum steals my linebreaks? c&p'ing from nano (don't use chrome and read the stickies) :)

Most likely just the Wine version, Steam now only works with Wine 1.7.8+
