    Trouble running somethings in WINE.

    Try running from the command line and post the errors you get.
    Not trying to discourage you but I also tried running worms without any success.

    Well i'm always open to help a linux newbie

    ok, well i'm sure you know what terminal IS, as you've managed to install worms world party.

    In the terminal, you'll want to type 'wine' without the quotations of course. then as ALWAYS, type a space between commands and then just paste, drag or type the directory/location of worms.exe or any file for that matter.

    For Example:
    Code:
    randomuser@Desktop: wine /home/randomuser/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Team17/Worms\ World\ Party/wormsworldparty.exe
    Don't obviously copy that exact text because it's probably wrong (I just guessed).

    You'll notice that I placed a \ before spaces in folder names. This is so that terminal knows that it is a directory space, not a command property.

    Hope that helps

    Aha!

    Thankyou, buddy

    Right, this is what I get when I type in the code

    steve@steve-laptop:~$ wine /home/steve/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Team17/Worms\ World\ Party/wwp.exe
    err:module:import_dll Library MSVCP60.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Team17\\Worms World Party\\wwp.exe") not found
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Team17\\Worms World Party\\wwp.exe" failed, status c0000135

    What version of wine are you using ? Try going to www.winehq.org and getting the latest one.
    I'm out of ideas.

    I used Cedega and got through the menu screens easily.
    Then when I tried to start a game it just crashed out.

    Use the howto in wine's appdb: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=3905

    You might then be able to run it with the shortcut. If not, you'll need to start it from a terminal at the wwp directory, like so:
    Code:
    cd /home/steve/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Team17/Worms\ World\ Party/
    wine wwp.exe
