    Simple case of a corrupted copy then. Good to have that one solved.

    I am using the video card Nvidia 7600 Go, and I got the game installed fine and everything perfect, until I try and run the game. When I try to run the game it says Unable to load 3D Acceleration, when I try to run the game without it the cinematic video is very choppy and it will freeze up if I hit esc.

    Your problems sounds grafics card driver related.

    Can you run these two commands in a terminal and post the output here?

    Code:
    glxinfo | grep rendering
    glxgears -printfps

    I just pulled myself out of the sofa, and made a lot of changes and updates to the howto in hopes that I have clarified some things, which were unclear

    But please help by making YOUR updates and changes to it. I don't believe we have covered all the bases yet, as people are still posting problems, which this howto doesn't help with.

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

    WoW will run best using OSS. Run 'winecfg', select 'Audio', then select 'OSS Driver' as Wine's sound driver. Make sure no other driver is selected.

    Next, add the following to the file WTF/Config.WTF in your WoW directory.

    Code:
    SET SoundOutputSystem "1"
    SET SoundBufferSize "100"
    SET gxApi "OpenGL"
    Ok, I did that first little bit, but I can't figure out what to do next. I'm pretty much a complete noob here. Where do I find that file/how do I add to it? I don't have a WTF directory in my WoW directory. I've tried running WoW, and everything works so far, except there's no sound, so I assume this is the problem. Thanks!

    I just looked in my WoW directory and I found out it's in fact lower case "wtf". Don't know if that'll help you.

    If you copy/paste the whole path name to your WoW directory in this tread, then I can give you a command, which should make your config.wtf file open up in a text editor.

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

    Ok, I think I figured out the problem. I was looking in the directory where I put the files from the CDs, not the directory where WoW was installed to. The problem is, I don't know how to find the folder where WoW was installed to, because I can't figure out where wine put it. I used the default folder that wine wanted to use, would that be the same for everyone? According to wine, it's in C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft. Does that help?

    Wine's fake C:\ drive is actually found in /home/<username>/.wine/drive_c

    .wine is a hidden folder. You can press ctrl-h in nautilus to show hidden files and folders.
