(I hope this won't show up twice. I tried posting to the mailing list first (GMane), but even though I confirmed that I exist, it's not posting anything. Other lists on GMane work fine. Then I've read on the Wine site that the Usenet group comp.emulators.ms-windows.wine is linked to the list, but it doesn't seem to be the case at all. So I'm posting in the forum now.)

Note that I've used the latest winetricks to do:

  winetricks d3dx9

or else the game wouldn't start at all.

I'm on Gentoo 64-bit, kernel and an ATI HD4870 with ATI Catalyst 9.4 drivers (supports OpenGL 3.0).

The Wine log while running it is this:
