Updated WINE version in Crossover?

I'm currently using crossover games for mac and (I think) it's using WINE version 1.1.0
One of my favorite games has a bug in it that is fixed in WINE version 1.1.7
My question is:  Do the full or professional versions of Crossover use a more updated version of WINE than 1.1.0 and will they run games OR
can i upgrade the WINE version used within my Crossover Games (7.1.1)?

The version of Wine in Crossover Office and Crossover Games is updated incrementally as development is done on cxoffice and cxgames. The version of Wine you're going to get with Crossover is whatever (roughly) the last merged version of Wine+Crossover was before we branched Crossover for release. At that point the more-or-less version of Wine in Crossover is fixed and we start bug-testing that release of Crossover.

You really don't want to mess with trying to upgrade the version of Wine included with Crossover, everything will just break. If you need the absolute-bleeding-edge version of Wine then you'd be best off just downloading and compiling Wine yourself.
