Alright, so I'll start by saying my computer is really old and doesn't meet minimum specs for Hearthstone, but if the game is just slow or bad graphics I'd like to try it anyway. But I can't get it to run at all. Here's what's going on:
I got the program installed by upgrading Wine to 1.7. Now when I launch it (by using the desktop icon because I don't know how to launch it using command line cause I'm a total noob), a box pops up that says "Error" in the title bar, but the content of the window doesn't load. I think it loaded once and told me it was an OpenGL issue, but I can't get it to reappear. The odd thing is that it doesn't appear to be a memory issue because my computer doesn't hang. Everything runs fine, except that this error message (and consequently the Hearthstone application) doesn't load.
What does happen though is that this error message traps my mouse. I can recover my mouse by ALT-TABbing to another window and then killing the Wine process from command line (remember, my computer isn't hanging so this is a fairly straightforward process), but this might be relevant data to anyone trying to help me solve this problem.
I know anyone answering this question would probably like a hardware profile. I'd be happy to provide one, if someone would tell me how to generate it. I'm running a Dell Inspiron 6400 with 1GB RAM, if that helps at all (yes, I know HS requires 2GB minimum, but if I can get some functionality out of 1GB I'll see what I can do; if it's too crappy I'll give up, but if not I'd like to play; I'm going to buy a new computer in about 4 months but I can't get one until then so I have to deal with this mess for the time being).
