need help with programs

i have installed a few games that for one reason or another wont start, theres one that i believe references to an older version of some package i have and so cant run, i have a two that give me an error like this Invalid signature ((SHA1) DSA sha1 md5 (GPG) (MISSING KEY) GPG#d7d80734 NOT OK)
and then i have americas army installed but yet again when i go to start it nothing happens, i think its missing a required package but it didnt report an error on install.
what options are available to me to make them work?

i did as you said and i got this Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".GL_EXT_bgra not supported

i guess this means im missing a required package. im going to try this on my other nonfunctional programs.
for future reference, when i do this on a program and see something like that im basicly seeing what package i need to get correct?

Hello Weepenguin,

Did you installed any GPG keys from the source of the games?
