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