I'm currently attempting to run a game by the name of Eiyuu Senki, a Japanese game if the name didn't already give that away. I've got all the necessary fonts, winetrick fakejapanese and everything else necessary to make the game nice and happy. It does, in fact, display all text and everything correctly, doesn't have any sound issues, doesn't seem to suffer from any slowdown (based off audio cues) during more 'intense' effects heavy battle sequences or fancy transitions.
It does, however, not refresh the screen at all. A black screen after startup is fixed by toggling fullscreen on and off, but after that the display for the game is only updated by having another window or other graphical entity (like the dock) move over it.
As far as I can tell, after a few hours of research while at work, this is an issue that crops up from time to time as far back as 2008, irrespective of what kind of program is being run or the hardware it's being run on (maybe there's some connection I just missed across the various examples). The most recent example I can find is this. Which isn't exactly the same issue, since for me the cursor doesn't cause the screen to refresh at all.
I've fiddled around a bit with suggestions given in the above thread, and others, but I'm very green and unsurprisingly wasn't able to come up with a solution through dumb luck. Originally I was trying this on the current stable build, and just recently switched over to the very fresh wine-devel, where the problem persists.
On launch, and throughout play, the log returns this:

I've tried opening another windows game, Open General, with the same setup and it works just fine. No display refresh issue at all.
Thanks, and sorry about the wall of text.
