View Full Version : World of Warcraft takes forever to close

July 17th, 2009, 04:27 AM

My World of Warcraft takes forever to close in WINE. I don't know why this is all happening... If anybody can help me that would be great.

WoW takes about 10 minutes for me to see my GNOME desktop again.

Can anybody help?

How are you closing it?

Escape > Exit Game?

If you play in windowed mode and click the "X", it'll close pretty much instantly.

I either type /exit or go to ESC > Exit Game

It also takes forever for me to switch characters.... So long that it disconnects me from the server.

Hate to ask but have you tried disabling desktop effects? Also what kinda video hardware you got and how much ram? These things are factors.

I have this problem as well. But I don't normally disconnect because it take less then 1 min for the program to log to the character screen or exit. The hard drive isn't accessing and cpu usage is not maxed out while it pauses.
