Installing

What does not

The grass and other types of foliage seem to only appear when you are

standing in them but everything else renders right.  The game is still
very playable. I am in NG+ (2nd complete pass) at Drangleic Castle.

Workarounds

You need to go into the wine Registry to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D and add a new String Value named StrictDrawOrdering. Then set it to enabled. This will solve the flickering UI problem and it seems to help with the rendering problem to.

I also enabled CSMT.

HowTo / Notes

Lack of fonts on first notification screen and more

One of problems that one might except while playing Dark Souls under wine is wrong order of rendering of stuff on screen. It might cause no fonts, textures or object appearing on screen.

To fix it you should add a new "String Value" called "StrictDrawOrdering" inside

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D

and set it to "enabled"

With it, wine will (as name suggests) draw object on screen in a correct order(or at least more correct than before).

To go past crash during a "New Game" first cutscene it might be needed to disable "winegstreamer.dll" in winecfg "Libraries" card

CSMT
As CSMT can be used to improve performance and mitigate some problems, it's experimental and shouldn't be used to submit any bugreports or test data
Patch to try

Can anyone test if this patch helps a bit with vanishing textures/models(StrictDrawOrdering still needs to be enabled)?
