Warcraft 3 running at 2 fps on wine. WHY?!?!?!?


I installed WC3 in wine. I have wine set to emulate Win 98, and I am sure that WC3 is installed correctly. I just downloaded wine, so it is the latest version. Warcraft 3 is version 1.05 running a no-cd patch with a symbolic link to the regular executable. I was searching threads, and I heard that you had to add "-- -opengl" to the end. All wine gives me is "wine: unkown extension" then proceeds to list all of the extensions. I have absolutely no idea of what I did wrong or what I am doing wrong. I can run WC3, just in 640x480 and at 2fps. On Windows all the settings were Max and it was at 45 fps, so it isn't the comp.

since you didn't mention it, i have to ask, do you have your video drivers installed to enable 3d acceleration?

what is your video card? btw, if you want to find out how to know if you have 3d accel, type glxinfo at the konsole and look for the line:
direct rendering: X
where X is Yes or No. if its no, then no 3d accel.

Nevermind, I installed the latest drivers, and now direct rendering is enabled. All I got to do is test WC3 out...
