Tank you x-M-x and Lucifero for the advice, and the links. I got it to work, but for some reason when I enable sound from the intro menu (alien queen popup), that's when it happens. I disabled everything, then went and enabled options one by one, and so far I am going to see if it is sound or music. One way or another, it doesn't seem to like sound. Is there anything I have to install in Wine to make my sound work? I read through the whole post you gave me, and am glad to have that information in case other problems occur. I am also glad I actually got the game running. All I need to do now is find a way to enable sound and get the multiplayer patch/fix. It would also be nice to have a 'no CD' fix. Then I'll be rockin' AVP 2
UPDATE: It seems to be the music. When I enable music I get the black screen. Sound OK, music, no.
