warcraft 3: tft with wine. doesn't find my cd drive


Having never used wine before I naively attempted to run warcraft III using the following command:

~> wine "/windows/C/Program Files/Warcraft III/Frozen Throne.exe" -opengl

It seems to start up ok, but then asks me to verify that my Frozen Throne disc is in my CD-ROM drive. My Frozen Throne disk is in the drive, I can see it on the desk top. What do I need to do to help wine find it?

Any help would be appreciated.

may be you make a mistake in wine.conf
may be you need to unmount the cd in linux
may be the ddl provided by wine don't offers acces to warcraft to read the cd ....
- try to launch word and open a document on the cd! if you can't, see at the $HOME/.wine/wine.conf or /etc/wine.conf (i'm not sure for the exact name or the exact place).
- if you can open a document on cd in word, try to unmount the cd on linux and laucnh again warcraft.
if the error occurs, the problem is from the dll, you must configure the buildin or native usage if you have windows installed.

I'm using suse 10.0. I probably should have mentioned that to begin with. So I'm using the version of wine automatically installed by suse 10.0. I haven't done any configuration myself.

Using wine and the windows program notepad.exe I can open documents on the cd. I tried unmounting the cd, but warcraft still can't find it.

If some sort of reconfiguration would help, and you could give me instructions for that, or point me toward some, that would be great.

I appreciate the help.

have you windows installed on this bos ?
because during warcraft install, it modify some dll file in the windows directory. but with wine, the directory is in the tree of wine or on a distinct partition, if you have windows installed.
May be wracraft'install modify the dll in the real windows directory and wine use the dll provided by itself. at this moment, warcraft can't their own modified dll and cannot accec the device like they are real.
in another is the letter of the cd change : a letter was assigned during install, and now when you launch it you have another letter.
a last idea : how wine call the device : /dev/cdrom or /dev/ide/lun0....

I am not sure that this will solve the problem, but it may be interesting to see what happens if you crack the executable with a no cd crack.

I appreciate the replies.

I think the problem is that I'm trying to run the copy of warcraft III that I installed under windows to my windows partition.

It sounds like I should install it using wine so that the correct dlls are modified.

I'll try that when I get time.

i have the same problem but no idea what to do...

think it has something to do with suse 10.0 and wine
i'm using cedegaCVS and it allways worked fine (on mandrake/mandriva or suse 9.0) but know after installing suse 10.0 I cant get any game to work

i cant get point2play to find my cdrom drives either

theres no difference between installing warcraft using wine or winex or cedega or using the allready installed windows-version, problem is the same

using a no cd crack neither works, if you copy it to the directory your game is in it cant find the war3.exe

so if you figure something out please let me know, i think i will deinstall my suse 10.0 version, in my opinion it causes too much problems
