What''s the difference among those engines?

Say I cannot get a game run successfully, is that helpful if I change to use another engine? Is there any guideline of choosing engine?

Thanks :-)

The difference comes down to the Wine version used.

All normal engines use standard Wine versions from WineHQ.org, and the Wine version is the last part of the engine name.  All the compatibility of running Windows apps in OSX comes down to Wine... new things are added, bugs are fixed, etc... etc... very often several versions will run the same program fine.  Usually the newest version is the best to use, but as Wine is constantly being changed, it often breaks things for a few versions that used to work ok... so older versions come in handy.
