Wine + VNC + Golden Palace problem

I'm not sure exactly where the problem is lying. I'm at work, and am VNC'ed (over SSH) into my Slack box at home. I installed Wine and everything seemed to be fine (I can run notepad.exe fine). I used Wine to install Golden Palace (from which also seemed to work fine. But when I go to run the program, it gives me an error message:

An error occurred while loading the poker graphics...

The following graphics did not load correctly:

All of those files exist (relative to the directory I'm running it from) and I've tried running it as my user and as root, so permissions shouldn't be a problem. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Here's the response I got from them.

Dear Player,

It is probably caused by not calling on them properly by their location on your
computer. By standard, it is stored in C:\Program Files\Golden Palace

Please ensure you have that directory correctly mapped and it should load

I hope this helps solve your problems.


Poker Host.
That directory exists and has all of the image files in it (which I can open in GIMP fine, so I know the bmps are ok)

It might be a bug in Wine. Try enabling the +cursoricon debug channel:

WINEDEBUG=+cursoricon wine poker.exe

i'm sorry here but wine is a bug-paradise ,
so i'm suggesting to look for a proper Linux-version.
