Set the option HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Programs\Wine\Direct3D\DirectDrawRenderer to 'opengl' (if the Direct3D key doesn't exist add it). Further you need to set the option 'Direct3D\RenderTargetLockMode' to 'readtex'.

Thanks for this info - it help - but unfortunately game is still choppy
:( it is really strange that old games have such weird problems...

Any other ideas?

I heard about this before... I must find out more - is there a
posibility to play Warcraft2 campaigns with this? (that is only thing
that matters for my).
