I was running EVE fine through Wine. Then after a few days of not playing, EVE would show the splash, but hang there, the splash would disappear and the process would keep running but nothing would happen. Wine in a console told me to find the exception in the LogServer, which I did, and it was something to the effect of
"File not found: 'SHGetFolderPath'"
It seems to have been caused by having Wine link C:\Users\(me)\My Documents to a nonexistent folder (because I had changed some other things in my system). Changing the link fixed everything.
Hope that helps someone at some point in the future. You have to have a My Documents folder for EVE to run.
