    Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    HOWTO: WoW with Wine

    This howto is for installing and playing World of Warcraft using Wine under Ubuntu.

    The howto found in this post is just a short'n'simple version, intended to demonstrate the minimum amount of steps required to make WoW run. The complete howto, which will likely be more of a help to you, is found in the Ubuntu community documentation wiki:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft



    Short'n'simple HOWTO
    (only 8 steps)


    1. Install Wine from here: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

    2. Copy all of the files from all of the CD's to a directory on your hard drive. Just overwrite when prompted, and make sure to copy CD 1 last (you need a specific file from CD 1).

    3. Open a terminal
    (also called a konsole, CLI, and command prompt) and do these commands inside to start the installation:
    Code:
    cd /<path-to-directory>/
    wine Installer.exe
    Replace <path-to-directory/> with the right path to the directory where you copied all the files.

    4. Wait and click next when possible.

    5. Do this command in a terminal, and just press ok to close the configuration utility that opens:
    Code:
    winecfg
    6. Now run this command in a terminal:
    Code:
    gedit ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf
    Add these lines to the text file:
    Code:
    SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
    SET SoundBufferSize "150"
    SET gxApi "OpenGL"
    7. Save the file and exit.

    8. You should be able to play WoW using the shortcut on your desktop, or by running this command:
    Code:
     wine "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe"


    Reg tweak

    This is a simple registry edit for Wine that either will either act positively or negatively on your graphics performance. It may fix graphical glitches, increase framerate, stop the game from crashing, or it will create glitches, decrease the performance, and even make the game crash. You should give it a try to see what is does for you, as you may always easily remove it again, if it acts negatively for you.

    Open a terminal window, type regedit and press enter. This will start the Wine equivalent of the windows registry editor. If you are familiar with using the registry editor under windows then this is pretty much the same.

    Notice: the guide below is case sensitive!

    1. Find this key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\
    2. Highlight the wine folder in the left hand pane by clicking left on it. The icon should change to an open folder
    3. Right-click on the wine folder and select [NEW][KEY]
    4. Replace the text New Key #1 with OpenGL
    5. Right-click in the right hand pane and select [NEW] then [String Value]
    6. Replace New Value #1 with DisabledExtensions
    7. Then double click anywhere on the line, a dialog box will open.
    8. In the value field type GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object



    How To Get Help
    If this short guide doesn't work right away for you, then please look over the complete howto first:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft

    If, after following every step in the complete howto, you are still having troubles running the game, I would like to invite you to look over this comprehensive troubleshooting article, for common issues, that arise from following this guide:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wo...roubleshooting

    Also, in case the troubleshooting section doesn't solve your issue, you are welcome to post questions in this tread, but in order for other people to be able to effectively help you, you need to be very descriptive about your issue, and post some useful info about your system specs etc. Please write up some details about your
    • CPU
    • RAM
    • Graphics card make and model
    • Graphics card driver version number
    • Wine version number


    And please be polite to people. We are all just jolly amateurs, like yourself.


    Help Others
    As the complete howto is a community help file, YOU are free to edit and improve it in any way YOU feel - and please do so, so that others may benefit from what you figured out

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    Can you fix the script lines that you quote because obviously
    #!/bin/sh X :3 -ac & # Launches a new X session on display 3 cd "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft" # Goto WoW dir sleep 2 # Forces the system to have a break for 2 seconds DISPLAY=:3 /usr/X11R6/bin/wine WoW.exe -opengl # Launches WoW
    won't work without line breaks in there somewhere.

    Cool deal Sammi, and thanks for taking on the update of this important document (for those of us who play).

    I'm worried about the upcoming WoW patch though. Can you tell me if our WoW installs through Wine will download and apply the patches or will we have to do something else to get that done? I suppose it may (or may not) break Wine .26 as well.

    Only a beta tester of the expansion can really answer that for now.

    Good news is that several testers have reported that they have gotten that expansion to work in Wine, according to the WOW's entry on appdb.winehq.org: http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=6013

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    Hi, new to Linux/Ubuntu. Version 6.06

    I installed wine just a few minutes ago, copied all of the WoW files from the CD and put them in a directory. typed in that directory.., Wine Installer.exe ...

    the installer shows up, the buttons on screen are too small to read, but i hit the biggest one and what do you know, its brings up the EULA. I "read" the Eula, (it was garbled..) wait a second, Hit Agree
    and pop up comes up with

    Unrecognized key "options". (AttributeParser:****)

    and goes back to the first screen. when i try the other buttons similar popups occur and i cannot continue with installation.

    any advice?

    Edit:
    Perhaps I installed wine incorrectly..

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    Hey guys,

    Not a huge issue but I am noticing that not all my sound effects are playing in WoW. Mainly the sound effects that accompany a spell being cast or a profession such as the mining sound or the skinning sound. It really is pretty inconsistent and most of the time the sounds play fine. like I said not a big deal. anyone else notice this?

    Ill post more about my setup if i'm not the only one with this issue.

    thanks

    Re: Howto: WOW with Wine (help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft)

    I have been converted! I've always "messed around" with Linux. Trying to learn what I can, getting frustrated and putting linux down for a bit, then coming back. I've always kept windoz box as my primary because of gaming. I got Ubuntu Dapper 6.0.6 and Wine 0.9.29 installed on my Dell laptop yesterday and followed alot of this tutorial/thread and got WoW working in linux! On to my only problem atm:

    I am of course running WoW in OpenGL on an NVidia card and it runs like a CHAMP. As good is not better in long gaming sessions then my windoz box. I've read lots of threads saying that trying to change in game settings crashes the game. So I tryed it and it does indeed. So, I load WoW with the -d3d flag and it does indeed still start up, but the graphics are all funkafied, well at least teh ones that render. I can see buttons and the login box but I dont get any of the game graphics, making it impossible to change any settings because I can not see teh settings tabs when I hit ESC etc. Majority of the screen is black.

    Any advice on how to possibly get enough graphics when in D3D to change WoW settings when I need to?
