- Open Terminal and run following commands:

- If you are using a 64-bit architecture, then enable 32-bit for better compatibility:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

01. Add the Wine Key:
wget -nc
sudo apt-key add Release.key

02. Add repositories:
on Ubuntu:
sudo apt-add-repository
on Debian:
sudo apt-add-repository

03. Update repositories:
sudo apt update

04. Install Wine:
sudo apt install wine-stable winehq-stable

05. Set Wine to 32 bit architecture and run winecfg:
WINEARCH=win32 winecfg

06. Install winetricks to download required Windows components to run Superfighters Deluxe:
sudo apt install winetricks

07. Run winetricks and download required Windows components:
winetricks --gui

08. Select the default wine prefix:

09. Select "Install a Windows DLL or component":

10. Select following packages, press ok and wait for the installation:

11. Close winetricks and download Superfighters Deluxe archive: ... 1.0.2c.rar

- If you don't have a .rar archive opener just download and install "unrar" using the following command:
sudo apt install unrar

Then open a terminal on the same directory of Superfighters Deluxe archive and run:
unrar x "SFD Beta v.1.0.2c.rar"

12. Run "Superfighters Deluxe.exe" using Wine in terminal with the following command:
wine "/path/to/Superfighters Deluxe.exe"
3 x
You ejected the first bullet by hand, didn't you?

I see what you were trying to do.
But testing a technique you only heard about in the middle of battle wasn't very smart.
