    Here is a log:
    http://www.pasteall.org/61339

    What I get is a blank window(transparent) of Resident Evil 4 game (basicly an invisible window) and an error message. What is more, I can not succeed to install the DX from the popup in installer, but I install the d3dx_36 anyway. What's the problem?

    Nothing pops out in that log
    Do you have the newest nvidia drivers installed?

    Looks like there are some video codec problems: WineHQ
    Quartz package might fix it as MrDeathJr wrote....

    Or just go to the Resident Evil game folder and rename: Movies
    But you won't be able to see any of the cinematics

    Try installing the packages: Directx9
    This should install all related packages for Direct X 9

    Last, if the game plays and you get a bunch of slow frames per second, try this version of wine:
    1.7.19-WGL_WINE_surface2

    In this case I need HD, because the patch I mentioned before(re4hd) which provides high quality textures and models requires Ultimate HD version. I can try non-HD version too, but that doesn't mean that I don't need to get HD version installed. I need to do it somehow...

    I wish I had Resident Evil 4, then I would do all the work and create a step-by-step guide.

    Were you able to get the regular non HD Resident Evil to run at least?

    There is a chance that torrent version is not up to date, or it may be buggy...
    It hard to know if a game really runs until you buy it and test it.
    I know that other versions of Resident Evil have problems as well.

    Too much politics and money involved.
    I've read many articles and big companies chase money which is in Windows.
    Small indie companies need as much attention they can get, so multi-platform is the only way to go.

    I was reminded by a friend that Windows had to fight this exact same fight when DOS was the "big" operating system. None of the games were Windows compatible, so developers had to port their DOS games to Windows. Just like developers are doing now with Linux.

    In time...
