wine + dark engine

I was able to get Thief 1/2 and System Shock 2 working with wine, cutscenes and everything, but only in "Desktop" mode. As soon as i remove the Desktop option from the wine config to play in fullscreen, all of the games refuse to run. System Shock for example gives the error message: "Your Video Hardware is not supported by System Shock 2". I noticed that i can run them in fullscreen if i use the "nv" driver in my X setup as opposed to the proprietary "nvidia" (i have a GeForce2 MX) - thereby losing all hardware acceleration. Another issue is the cursor, which should disappear as soon as a game is started.

Thanks for any help.
