sims 3 under wine (POL) problem

Okay, I was absolutely excited to here that sims 3 works on wine, because that is one of my favorite game series. I proceeded to install sims 3 under playonlinux, and after 2 failed attempts I successfully installed it.I know this when I clicked the game and i heard the sounds (twinkly music, su-su.) Here's the problem I can't see a thing, the screen flickers but it stays on my desktop. I can still use my desktop with the game on (and i'm not talking about alt tab.) I know the game works, because I can click things with in the game. I have an intel express chipset for laptops, I know that it works fine with the game itself because i previously played the game on windows. I did read though on the wine's appDB that intel cards don't work. Is there any work around for that? Thanks in advance.

Yes, there is -- get a non-Intel display card.
