Changed to SSD, some games no longer working...?!?

OK, sumthin’ broke, somewhere, somehow…

I recently installed a 2TB SSD for my GoG games, and have been reinstalling all of them after a full OS rebuild (Ubuntu 20.04). Most of them presented no problems, as they worked before, and they still worked (even better due to the speed of the SSD). I recently came across three games that worked before, but are now refusing to run, for whatever reason (below is the output when trying to run them via the command line). I am at a complete loss (I played almost all the way through Prince of Persia of the previous install, too). The below output is edited considerably so that this post won’t be several hundred lines long. Please help! Thanks.

Does any of this stuff suggest anything? They worked before, and the most customization any of them required was a virtual desktop for Prince (4:3 AR). I have tried multiple runners, Windows versions, etc all to no avail. I even checked for install file corruption via hash… nope. The confusing thing is that all of the other games work fine…?!?

The only change to my host OS (Ubuntu) has been several kernel upgrades (and I have been running “flatpak update” with each one)
