To make a long story short, the game I'm trying to run displays a black screen and when I asked some people what causes that particular game to do that, one of my friends who uses normal Wine mentioned that he had to set the DirectDraw Renderer to gdi. ...That being said, I've got no idea how to do it from Crossover Chrome OS, I've looked around through every settings menu I could think of. Any ideas?
You can play around with this through the registry. You'll need to fire up RegEdit from the Start Menu via Start->Run... and then typing in "regedit" (if you don't know how to get to a screen to do that, just reply here and I'll add the info.). From there, go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->wine and then if they exist Direct3D->DirectDrawRenderer if they do not, create them (case sensitive I believe). Within the DirectDrawRenderer key, create or set the "String value" to either "gdi" or "opengl" (opengl is the default apparently, and gdi is supposedly legacy). You can get info. on some of the most useful keys here.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
