wine not running program

hi im running sabayon linux 4.1. useing the latest version of wine. i installed the program rapelay 1.1 it starts up i see the exit button settings button and the content warning. when i hit play it goes to a black screen then dissappears. so then i go to winecfg add rapelay.exe to the app list and use windows me edtion simulator click apply then ok. then open up the terminal and do the command "wine rapelay.exe" inside its directory. it starts up like b4 and dissappears once again. but this time i got this error in the terminal

wine: Call from 0x7ee0d67b to unimplemented function d3dx9_36.dll.D3DXCreateEffectFromResourceA, aborting

or to me seems like an error. is there a log file or commands that i can do to figure out the problem and fix it ive tried changing all the settings via the game and it dosnt change a thing. any suggestions

I think you'll have more luck if you talk to someone at #winhq IRC channel on Freenode. There are quite a few helpful wine guys there.
