I installed Oblivion on my macbook using Wine, it works fine and all, but to get to it start I have to go through terminal. I've written an AppleScript to get me to the correct location, but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to start the game for me, I still have to type "wine oblivion.exe". I'd like to make my script type that for me, any ideas?

I currently have:

tell application "Terminal"
do script "cd ~/.wine/drive_c/program\\ files/bethesda\\ softworks/oblivion/"
end tell
If I put "oblivion.exe" at the end of that it tries to open the exe. If i put "wine oblivion.exe" it tells me that file doesn't exist.
QUOTE Thanks
