sounds like a driver problem, (probably to do with the built in game support for the card) I would check the rogue spear website and see if there any patches for the game released lately that address this problem.

I found the page and this note:

Rogue Spear 2.04 Patch (American Version Only!)

Found and eliminated some bandwidth hogs in multiplayer.
Fixed the pink areas and bad text on Permedia 2 cards.  

here is a link to the site, downlaod the 2.05 patch and the fixes in the 2.04 patch will still apply:
