Text Flickering Problems When Wrapping a Game Using Wineskin Answered

I recently bought "The Stronghold Collection", a suite of castle-themed RTS games. However, not having a PC, I had to wrap the games on my mac using Wineskin. Overall, I am really impressed by how well these games work on mac through wine.

However, on Stronghold 2, I am experiencing an annoying amount of text flickering. The game is not unplayable, but I would love to try to figure out how to fix this issue.

My OS is Snow Leopard 10.6.8, running on a 2.54 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 4 GB ram. The Wine engine I used is "WS8Wine 1.3.30" with wrapper version "Wineskin-2.5.1"

Any help is appreciated!

I can vouch for VMware, I use it to run Windows on my computer. I recommend it even though I have Wine. Works great!

Another program to try could be Crossover for Mac.
