openbox3 & halflife through WINE

Hello there,

Just want to make it clear to anyone who is thinking of switching to openbox3 and plays halflife a lot through WINE, it's not wise. Keyboard focus is screwed in openbox3 and despite the recent release of 3.1, the issue is still not resolved. The keyboard works fine if you manage to open up halflife manually and click on console, however in a game launcher such as XQF which does all this automatically, keyboard focus lasts for about a second before its taken away...

I've tried everything to get it working, including moving to a free workspace, editing ~/.wine/config with settings such as DXgrab and UseFocusTake, and fiddling around with the way openbox3 focuses windows (~/.config/openbox/rc.xml). Any combination of these simply will not work and I'm very dissapointed cause I like openbox3 a great deal and now I have to resort to rebooting into winblows to play these games. *sigh*

I've googled for it everywhere, search these forums, searched the openbox3 mailing list archives, posted a question on the mailing list which I then got one reply from a retarded individual who proceeded to correct me on grammar (there is always one).

Am I the only one on this earth having this problem? Is there some way around it that I don't know of? Please help
