I have almost the very same problem as you. It can be resolved by either:
-> Use "3Dfx (OpenGL)" as a Renderer in the game config (MCSetup.exe). I know it sounds strange, but it solved for me.
-> replace the files in "DRV" folder to the ones that are installed BEFORE patching. By some strange reason, the D3D renderer from the v1.0 (CDs) version tends to work better than the one that comes with the patch - Or at least with me...
The 2nd suggestion requires you reinstall the game (Including deletion of any remaining files and folders after unninstall), then copy the "Drv" folder to another place, then apply v1.04a patch, then translation, and then copy the "Drv" folder (Or, at least, the "AsrD3DDrv.dll" file) you've copied to the game folder, replacing the files.
This, or use Winpack to unpack the "Drv" folder from the "Data1.cab" file in CD 1, then copy the "AsrD3DDrv.dll" file to the "Drv" folder.
