Direct3D8 game does not work

I want to play a game that I liked when I was a kid. it is called "Magic & Mayhem 2: Art of Magic". But it is unplayable due to graphical glitch: textures are constantly floating somewhere - including GUI and text. So i can't even read subtitles.

Wine gives me the following console output:

0009:err:winediag:wined3d_dll_init The GLSL shader backend has been disabled. You get to keep all the pieces if it breaks.
0009:fixme:d3d:wined3d_swapchain_init The application requested more than one back buffer, this is not properly supported.
Please configure the application to use double buffering (1 back buffer) if possible.
0009:fixme:d3d:resource_check_usage Unhandled usage flags 0x10.   <<< This line repeats many times
0009:fixme:d3d:state_vertexblend_w Vertex blend flags 0x1 not supported.
0009:fixme:d3d:state_swvp Software vertex processing not implemented.
0009:fixme:dpnet:IDirectPlay8PeerImpl_GetCaps (0153A138)->(0032FA8C,0): stub
003a:fixme:winmm:MXD_GetControlDetails What should the sw-side mixer controls map to?   <<< This line repeats many times
0009:fixme:d3d:wined3d_buffer_load Too many declaration changes or converting dynamic buffer, stopping converting.
0009:fixme:d3d_perf:draw_primitive_immediate_mode Drawing using immediate mode.
0009:fixme:d3d:wined3d_buffer_load Too many full buffer conversions, stopping converting.

Does anyone have any ideas how could i play this game?

seems to be the important bit here. I'm not familiar with this game but look through it's settings on whether this is setable somewhere. (also use [ code ] not [ quote ] tags for output)

Re: Direct3D8 game does not work

No, the game does not have such a setting. I guess I will temporary install a second OS to play it.
