My usual set of commands for running WC3 back on an earlier version of WineX was something like this:
$ winex3 -winver winxp war3.exe -opengl
I don't remember why I had to specify the Windows version as XP (if I recall, it also worked as win2k), but I remember it was integral for it to work properly on my system. Anyways, I tried this with cedega
ynadji@onizuka:Warcraft III$ cedega -winver winxp war3.exe -opengl
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 2 (X_ChangeWindowAttributes)
Resource id in failed request: 0x140000d
Serial number of failed request: 255
Current serial number in output stream: 257
I get that message in the terminal, and a window pops up saying:
"Warcraft III was unable to initialize."
I figured, maybe the options I used to have weren't needed anymore. Removing -opengl doesn't do a thing, and removing the -winver tag eliminates both
error messages. Just leaving me with this:
ynadji@onizuka:Warcraft III$ cedega war3.exe -opengl
as WC3 doesn't even try to launch. Any ideas? I was excited about Cedega since I should be able to play City Of Heroes (and Day Of Defeat works too
), but I need my Warcraft :P.
