Rule of Thumb
High settings = More detail, lower frame rates
Low settings = Less detail, higher frame rates
Apply the changes and start your game.
LEGO Indiana Jones 2 ran perfectly with hardly any extra configuration. I used the keyboard because Wine is known to not be totally compatible with controllers. The visuals were very nice and the frame rate was great with my GeForce 550 Ti.
