View Full Version : Wow hangs the whole system

November 19th, 2006, 01:29 PM
Ok i took a copy from a friend and start with "wine WoW.exe -opengl", the game loads fine and i can enter "the world" but about 10-20 secs into the game the whole system hangs and i have to push the power button to restart. Have tried i bit of googling but cant find any solution.

Have anyone else had the same issues?

I run ati(fglrx) and wine 0.9.24.

This has nothing to do with ATI.
I have an nVidia 8600 with exactly the same problem.
Happens in the latest Cedega and Wine with the --opengl or without.
The funny thing is this used to work in wine, but now it suddenly stopped.

WOW is a super fun game seriusly. I got so addicted to it but now i have a little boy so he takes up a lot of my free time.

Great... but how does that help me solve the problem?

Have you checked the terminal output at the time of the crash for anything odd?

Nope, i've fixed the problem by editing WoW's config.wtf file
I changed the
SET hwDetect "0"
SET hwDetect "1"

Then it worked, I just had to change the resolution (same config file) next time.
