Question [B]Wine gives exceptions until renaming native windows games "movies" folder[/B]

Long time i started using Linux.
and now i want to stop dual booting and using windows.

it's the gaming that hold me back. But I started using wine.

Games run smoothly but after some tweaks.

but i noticed that, most of the games gives error such as:
Unhandled Exception

it only goes away when i rename or remove any ingame movie folder. you know the one that has the stories about the game plot.

This issue is just lacking the gaming experience.

Why do i have to rename the movies file?
Is there a way to heal the problem?

Any help is appreciated.

You can hang around and check the Application Database. There's also a way there to report which programs work and their various quirks if they do work.
