    Starcraft Patching Probs [Wine]

    Hoooo kay. I'm having some difficulties here. I've got starcraft and broodwars up and running. Smoothly at that. Problems I'm having is connecting to Battlenet and patching. When I do so the screen goes blank and I only see the text saying "Searching for fastest Server" and "Cancel" Then I get a long readout in my console and wine shuts down.

    The read out is:
    wine: Unhandled page fault on write access to 0x7d4dc000 at address 0x7e510480 (thread 0014), starting debugger...
    WineDbg starting on pid 0x13
    Unhandled exception: page fault on write access to 0x7d4dc000 in 32-bit code (0x7e510480).

    Now, I only really care about connection to to get the patches. So when this didn't work I figured I'd grab the patches from blizzard and apply them that way. Grabbed the patches, but when I try to use them with wine I get a short error message and nothing happens.
    The message:
    Warning: could not find DOS drive for current working directory '/home/gaberade/Desktop', starting in the Windows directory.
    wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\SC-113f.exe": Module not found

    I think this might have to do with the path of my fake c drive, but I'm only 2 days old with Ubuntu.

    Anyone care to enlighten me?

    You might try making sure you're in the same directory as the patches, and run them from the commandline. It seems to make a difference with a lot of executables...

    It's also quite possible you have conflicting versions of wine installed - it seems to be quite picky about these things. I had a similar problem; I deleted the '.wine' directory from my home folder, then ran wine again, and it made all things complete (after configuring, of course ).

    Hope this helps

    Well I uninstalled wine, and then at the command line i removed the /.wine folder.
    Installed wine with the apt get command and winecfg'd again. Worked PERFECTLY. Still a black screen and all with battle-net, but the patches applied fine. Thanks so much!

    and seems to work fine in WIII for me anyway... in .11 are oyu using .11? before it's release I heard quite a bit about bnet hell so if your not, consider upgrading.... also I compiled my version with the MMap patch specifically for WoW.... not sure if that really has any meaning to this but it could be possible for my success...

    thanks for your help!!!
