Bear in mind, you will NEVER get the menu animation at the correct speed whilst keeping the main game 3D tactical view up to speed. DOSBox just cannot do that right now as it needs high cycles for the game part and low cycles for the menu. And anyway, the menu with fast animations still works just fine, just the animations are too fast, it isn't game breaking in any way at all (and in fact, some users prefer the faster loading menu animations).
Once you've got your cycles figured out, you need to edit the .conf file for the game. Unfortunately I don't have the GOG version, only my own, so I don't know what GOG have named the conf file. If you've installed to something like C:\Games (i.e. not Program Files which is a protected folder on Vista and above) then the .conf file should be in the game installation folder somewhere. Open it with a text editor (Notepad or similar) and find the row that lists the cycles to use. Just replace with your required number. For me it is 120000 (the most cycles I've ever need to run a DOSBox game).
