ok... so what is the difference beween Wine and WineX? is it D3D?
What were the most common issues that you saw running any win game in Wine?
Especcially with D2LOD...
My understanding is that WineX is a branch of Wine development specially tailored towards running games. They have much better (though proprietary) D3D support (D3D is just now appearing in the official Wine development tree, and isn't very usable yet).
I am not much of a gamer, so I don't know what any of the common issues are. D2LOD is about the only Windows game I've played with any regularity, and it works great (non-d3d mode) in the official Wine version. It's supposed to be basically perfect in WineX.
