Warcraft 3 TFT doesn't like Cedega :|


My usual set of commands for running WC3 back on an earlier version of WineX was something like this:

Code:
$ 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

Code:
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:

Code:
ynadji@onizuka:Warcraft III$ cedega war3.exe -opengl              
ynadji@onizuka:Warcraft III$
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.

Okay, I figured out the problem. The first time I ever launched WC3 with Cedega, everything worked fine. However, after I quit, it game me the whole Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) etc. error message. Apparently, wine didn't finish quitting, so when I try to launch it again, I get the same error, or absolutely nothing. Doing
$ killall wine
After I quit WC3 fixes the problem. It doesn't do this with any other games, but I'm assuming if you get that specific away message, killall wine afterwards will fix your problem.
