wine Multi Theft Auto - text with artifacts

Post by xpto » Sun Aug 17, 2014 15:07

I'm using Sabayon Linux amd64 14.08 XFCE.
Some text on Multi Theft Auto - like chat text - have some artifacts that make it difficult to read.
Here are some shots:

I have tried different wine versions - 1.4.1, 1.6.2 and 1.7.21is the current one.
I have played MTA on a Ubuntu based distro - Caixa Mágica - in this machine with wine 1.4.1 without text artifacts.
Also tried on fresh Installation of Sabayon Linux 14.08 XFCE and KDE but the same thing happens.

It was long time ago, but I think text in this game was ok.
What could be causing this? How to fix this?
