humm, maybe your 3D card isn't powerful enough. What resolution are you playing in ?
You should try to play in 640x480 .
About the freezes, could you try to play without changing the resolution at all (even not using the maximize button) ..?
Set the resolution to what you want by using the Configuration application, then launch the game.
Thanks to let me know if it's working better like that or not.
