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

    @saggio

    System specs please. Cpu, RAM, graphics card, and graphics card driver version.

    Can you please run WoW from the command line and post the text output it creates?

    Does 3d work in other games?

    Thanks for the reply!

    Actually, I feel like kind of an idiot - I solved my problem, after looking around at various documentation and poking around in my x.org config file - I hadn't properly enabled the proprietary ATI drivers for my ATI card.

    Thanks again for the reply (and the awesome howto).

    Make sure you have tried the proprietary ATI drivers (fglrx):

    http://www.albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html

    Try changing the windows version configured in winecfg.

    Try installing a older version of Wine: http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/archive/index.html
    I went though everything except "1" for UIFaster (I don't know what it does but the constant warnings of 'Do not use on pain of death' were enough to keep me thinking it's best to stay away) and for each one tried with wine emulating XP, 2000, and 98.

    I double checked and the ATi (fglrx) drivers are indeed the ones being used right now.

    The only thing I haven't done yet is the older version of wine. If I do change it will this break all the other programs I have installed though wine right now and is it really likely to help or is my case just a lost cause with the state of ATi's drivers right now?

    One last little question: if I end up with no choice and must use direct3d... is there anyway to stop that double cursor thing? It's driving me insane.

    Thanks for your help and advice.

    Update to Wine-0.9.38 and enable the hardware cursor in WoW's options. Let me know if you experience any problems with the hardware cursor code as I just got it into Wine. I will fix the actual problem with the software cursor at a later date when more important code is committed.

    Well done, so far d3d only has one cursor and it seems to be working fine. No stutter or interface lag (beyond what WoW gets all the time...). Also, the new version has fixed my openGL too and I'm the happiest girl at the ball!

    Thanks to both you and Sammi! Time to go put the boots to some alliance scum!

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

    I guess I spoke too soon.

    I was able to get WoW to launch and download the patch after I installed/enabled the proprietary ATI driver. But when I was patching WoW it hanged - so I downloaded it again, and it said patching was successful. However, when I started the launcher.exe, "Play" was not an option (was greyed out). After I closed that, I attempted to start WoW.exe from the shell (running $: wine WoW.exe in the appropriate place) - but instead of starting, it gave me a whole bunch of gibberish and nothing happened.

    So I restarted the computer and logged back in, with the intention of staring WoW via the launcher.exe - but when I clicked on the icon on the desktop, nothing happened. So I tried to start launcher.exe via the shell as I had attempted to start WoW.exe before. The same thing happened! The game didn't launch, instead I got a bunch of gibberish in the shell.

    Do I need to post what was spat out of the shell?

    My system specs:

    ASUS K8N-E Deluxe
    AMD64 3200+ (s754, the one with the 1meg cache)
    1.5Gb RAM
    ATi X850 PRO (AGP)
    I don't know the version of the proprietary driver...I just enabled it in the restricted driver manager, after I updated the system.

    Thanks again.

    WoW is still freezing at about the 60% mark on the load screen. Any ideas?

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

    I am having trouble getting wine to let me install wow, i'm not sure why exactly and i'm absolutely a noob to linux. Basically, I copied the files over to the directories as stated, and tried to run the install from there, I get an error now when I try to do that. so, i put the cd's back in the drive and it starts the install fine, but then when I try to eject the cd, it tells me it's in use by something, so i type in through the term wine eject, and it gives me an error of no cd drive found. any help would be majorly appreciated, i really wanna try this out.

    I also had another question, can I play with addons enabled, or do I have to play with the default ui, provided I actually get it working anyway.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ps, - System is AMD 64 3200 Geforce 7800gt.

    with a GeForce 7300 you shouldn't be having any trouble

    The problem is most likely driver related.

    Others will speak against it, but personally I recommend installing the binary nvidia drivers with Alberto Milone's Envy

    Or follow one of the following howtos to make sure you've set everything up properly:

    If you manage to get your other issue resolved, rest assured all of your mods will work just fine in WoW. ^_^ (with the exception of mods that change specific video settings, as video setting changes crash WoW in opengl mode)
