Big Fish Game Console how can it run on LM 18.3?/SOLVED

Hello everybody,
before ditching Windows for good, I bought some HOPA games from Bigfish.com.

These kind of games work perfectly with Wine but the problem is that they are bundled with the Big Fish Game Console.
I managed to install the console with PlayonLinux but it doesn't work.

My system is Linux Mint 18.3
I'm using Wine (stable 3.o1)
Playonlinux (4.2.12)

I'd rather not use an emulator for these games so can anyone suggest any hints or tips to make the console work?

When I double click on the BigFishGames icon on the desktop, the app runs and opens but the content is completely white - I can't see anything else.

Also, how do I get a report on the behaviour of the app if I want to debug it?
I'm attaching the debug log for your perusal.

I was looking for a very complicated solution when in actual fact the solution was very simple!

Thanks to a guy named Booman who solved the problem for me ([http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/thre ... mint.2547/]

Just when you want to install a BFG for the first time in Playonlinux (4.2.12), configure Wine during the installation with Windows XP.
That's it you're done!
