sounds work just fine, but as soon as I run the alsa player, sounds just stop working until the next reboot
this seems to happen with all games.

You need to provide more information than that. What exactly does wine have to do with your issue?

See config in my signature.

Sounds like the usual dmix issues.

Read http://www.sabi.co.uk/Notes/linuxSoundALSA.html , as the 2nd line in the file shows.

Ah, I understand your problem now. By default, ALSA lets one program take over your sound card, and therefore nothing else can play - unless you configure ALSA to allow this. Paul's advice is what you want. :)

yup that seems to be it, dmix will probably allow me to play multiple audio streams if I understood what has been said so far, however I'm a bit busy this week so I'll get to doing it by the weekend
thanks
