Cedega renders fonts improper; but wine renders fonts fine. (Screenshots)

Seems like Cedega doesn't have the appropriate fonts for the game.

Here's a picture of cedega:

Here's a picture of wine:

Any idea what I need to do get the fonts going?

I've got msttcorefonts package installed.

Tried adding the following under [fontdirs] like wine has, still no change.
"Dir0" = "/usr/local/share/fonts/truetype"
"Dir1" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/arphic"
"Dir2" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont"
"Dir3" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/java"
"Dir4" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/kochi"
"Dir5" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/latex-xft-fonts"
"Dir6" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/openoffice"
"Dir7" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera"
"Dir8" = "/usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-xfree86-nonfree"
"Dir9" = "/usr/share/fonts/wine"
"Dir10" = "/home/jon_k/.fonts"
