EXTREMELY BAD WineX problem!

Ok, I have both WineX3 and WineX 2.2.1 installed...
For some reason WineX runs programs fine, but if i go and try to run a game, it boots me out of my X session and back to a CLI, losing all my work!

Here is a snip out of my XFree86 log:
(II) Initializing built-in extension RANDR
(**) Option "Protocol" "ExplorerPS/2"
(**) Mouse1: Protocol: "ExplorerPS/2"
(**) Option "CorePointer"
(**) Mouse1: Core Pointer
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(**) Option "Buttons" "7"
(**) Mouse1: Emulate3Buttons, Emulate3Timeout: 50
(**) Option "ZAxisMapping" "6 7"
(**) Mouse1: ZAxisMapping: buttons 6 and 7
(**) Mouse1: Buttons: 7
(**) Option "Resolution" "3500"
(**) Mouse1: Resolution: 3500
(II) Keyboard "Keyboard1" handled by legacy driver
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Mouse1" (type: MOUSE)

Fixed. Recompiled the NVidia drivers after X crashed when i did glxinfo, proving that it has nothing to do with WineX but with the NVidia drivers themselves. Dunno why it happened, but the recompiled fixed it
