Is it possible to add an instruction like -opengl or -windowed to an EXE file that Wine loads up?

Im trying to run World of Warcraft and I think my problem is DirectX so Im trying to bypass it and have WoW work immediately with OpenGL instead. Something like "wow.exe -opengl" Is it possible?

I can figure out my WoW problems and have checked throughout the WoW thread and troubleshooting pages.

Yes. wow.exe -opengl used to be the preferred method of running.

You should be able to tack on any commands that you could in Windows.

Used to be? Does it run fine in d3d nowadays? Never know, might one day decide to play wow again, so it's useful to know :)
