[SOLVED] Neverwinter Nights (from GOG.com) black screen in Wine 1.6

The problem

I bought Neverwinter Nights for my father to play on his Ubuntu 13.04 system and wanted to get it working on my own machine before trying on his.

After installing, I was having trouble with the whole screen being black and unresponsive to keyboard and mouse input. The only option was running it in safe mode (a safe mode shortcut is created by the GOG installer).

I found an extremely simple fix for this while trying to disable the intro videos. Disable the intro movies.

How I fixed Wine with Pulseaudio on Ubuntu 12.10 using regedit

Oh. My. God.

I have returned from quite a long hiatus in blog entry writing to write about how I got sound working in Wine with a stock install of Ubuntu 12.10 and the (mostly) default Pulseaudio setup that Ubuntu uses. It took me 2 months and tens of Google searches for things like "Wine Ubuntu 12.10 no sound" and "What the hell? No pulseaudio sound with wine1.5."

All I wanted to do was play Starcraft 2 without booting in to Windows. I'm fine with the lower frame rate when running under Wine. I JUST WANTED SOUND!

TLDR
