Unable to run ES: Oblivion on Zorin 12


I recently built a desktop PC and have been working off of Zorin OS 12 because I'm too poor to buy Windows at the moment. I'm having an issue running my copy of Oblivion on Zorin. I've tried running it through Wine, where it plays through the logos then crashes to a black screen, and PlayOnLinux, where it installed properly but won't even run. I even tried installing the official patch through PlayOnLinux to see if it would launch with that, but it got as far as me browsing for the setup file from the official download and pressing 'Next,' then ceased to do much of anything at all. Hours of uninstalling, reinstalling, and desperate Google searches have gotten me nowhere. The iso is mounted on gcdemu properly, and the files themselves are fine, but I just can't get the game to work. Any help at all would be appreciated. Thanks.

If it helps at all, this is what I get in 'Debug' when I try to run it:

Wine has never been, nor will ever be a complete replacement for Windows. Especially for video games, audio/video editors or anything else system intensive.
