    warcraft3 issue

    I have 7.04 xbuntu installed with wine. (Installed Warcraft 3 original & FT)
    The I input the " wine War3 -opengl" command on the terminal the screen goes back to the login.
    If I input the command "wine War3" (without opengl) it will start the game screen there is too much framing and cannot even move my mouse. I have looked for the solutions in winehq and there is no suggested solution with this type of problem.
    Does any one encountered similar problem?

    I use
    Code:
    wine /home/drezliok/.wine/drive_c/games/Warcraft\ III/war3.exe
    To start mine.

    are your 3D drivers working?

    Could be Composite issue that is enabled by default, try disabling it in xorg.conf

    Code:
    Section "Extensions"
        Option         "Composite" "Disable"
    EndSection

    Re: warcraft3 issue

    I have the same problem playin wow using wine too. I'm not using Composite. My 3d drivers are working. It only lasts until i sign in (takes a min). I also notice the same thing in the beginning of bf1942 using cedega 6.0 and playing tc:e native.

    O yea I'm using Ubuntu 7.04.

    Re: warcraft3 issue

    hmmm...
    I don't get it. With the ubuntu 7.04 result is same. The screen goes back to the login when I executed "wine /~path/War3.exe -opengl. Without "-opengl" game will start but there is extreme framing and unable to play the game. Maybe a driver issue? I have nvidia 6800xt installed.
