Dark Souls III with wine
cthulhusreign commented on 19 August 2017 at 5:33 pm UTC

So it seems that other games are getting their bugs fixed left and right. I am over here waiting to see if anyone will work on DaS III or maybe it isn't as important as the witcher 3. So far I have gotten the exe to run and i have gotten the menu and in game text to stop flashing by addin a new String Value named StrictDrawOrdering
then set it to enabled and checked the csmt. Anybody got anything else? I would really like to play this game.

Wine development can be a bit one sided. Having TW3 work, but the DX10 features of Bioshock fail shows how varied the results are.

I try to play DS3 since wine-version 2.0. At this time, game started, but menus where terrible flashing. That has gone better with higher versions, but that's all what's working.
In game, you only see your statusbar and mini-menu. Nothing else. No character, no background.

Second thing is, that the game strongly needs to be played with controller. All the menus and options must be handled by controller. i did not found any way to change settings by keyboard.
And i spent x hours on getting controller working in wine >2.x. Impossible at this time.

Update (Wine 2.22): Character-creation works now, and the intro video is playing. But game crashes, just before it really starts.
