Install Libraries:

Check our my Windows Packages Step-by-Step Tutorial for more information:  Windows Packages Winetricks and PlayOnLinux.

I reccomend installing all the standard game libraries because most Windows games will require them.  I know that some games install Direct X and NET.Framework themselves, but I've had many issues with locking up or not installing correctly.  Also, hopefully the Playonlinux Libraries have been modified for Linux compatability.

Note:  Steam Requires Tahoma.ttf and won't work with Wine 1.5.13

Note:  I don't fully understand why certain Direct X and fonts are separated, but it doesn't hurt to just download them all.  I usually check Direct X 9 because most pre 2007 games use it.  If its a newer game, then install the Direct X 10 libraries.  Some games require XNA and NET Framework like Magicka or Borderlands.  You won't know until you install the game an it starts automatically installing the different libraries itsself.  Take note of each one and if it locks up, try installing them with Playonlinux.

Note:  Downloading can take some time depending on how many libraries you check and the speed of your internet.
