XIII: some levels rendered all black (but the sky)
 
Hi all,
I'm trying to make the game XIII run under Wine, it works almost perfectly, but the scene of two levels are rendered totally black, one can only see the sky. :(
Bug report at WineHQ: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30194
Expected

Observed

Any help in debugging, providing a workaround, or a fix, would be greatly appreciated. This game is truely excellent, and this bug seems to be the only real annoyance with running it under Linux.

Thanks for your attention,
Regards,
Pierre.

Does it help if you execute this before running the game?

export force_s3tc_enable=true

That fixes glitches like black areas for me in some apps.

Hi,

No it doesn't help. That's a Mesa trick, no? The nVidia proprietary driver supports S3TC just fine I suppose.
Also, the problematic level is something like the 12th in the game, everything works fine before that. Lack of S3TC support would most probably be noticeable much earlier.

Anyway, thanks for this suggestion.
Regards, Pierre.
