Scorched Planet + NGlide + Wine (Linux): strange comportment

Hello,

I installed Scorched Planet WIndows version on Linux Wine.
First I installed nGlide then SP.
During installation, SP detected nGlide and installed a special exe named spvoodoo.exe.
When I launch spvoodoo.exe, the game launched but there are some troubles:
- icons of the options menu are duplicated
- sprites are not used correctly

This is some examples:

Do WIndows users have same troubles?

For your information, I own the Scorched Planet english version. On the CD, you have a folder named "voodoo" where you could find the SP voodoo.exe.

Thank you for your help.

I remember this bug. I have seen it long time ago even on Windows, but now when I'm launching the game with spvoodoo.exe with both DirectX and Vulkan backends it works perfectly. Hmm...

UPDATE:

Tested also on Wine 1.6 and Wine Staging 2.10 (Mint 18.3) and it also works fine.

Found it! The bug only appears with 3dfx splash logo option enabled.

The issue will be fixed in the next release. :)

I deactivated 3dfx logo, the bug is gone and can finally play this old game of my childhood.
Thank you very much for your support :)
