Did you launch ./winestar.sh install the first time ? (cf. line 8 of the script)

Got me farther than any other method so far, however once I get into the login screen in the game I can't seem to click anything. The ToS pops up and I can scroll through it with my mouse wheel but I'm unable to click any of the buttons. Do you have any ideas?
