WoW / Wine errors


Hey Guys

I've been able to game thru wine successfully for quite some time now, but have recently run into some issues

I have a dual boot, XP and ubuntu 7.10 machine

World of warcraft was originally installed on the XP side, but I can successfully run it through wine when in windows, from the C:\ drive (I run it from there rather than ~/.wine so whatever OS i boot into I'm using the same game files)

Anyway, this was working perfectly fine until a recent update of the game from Blizzard, being patch 2.4

Now, I can no longer get wine to emulate the game, but strangely enough it still works flawlessly in XP, yet I am using the same files?

Right, the screenshot and wine-error code are below

I understand this isn't the Blizzard tech support, and I'm most likely shouting out to a rather small community in regards to this situation, but I'd really appreciate any advice you can give me

For the record, I'm using a fully up to date ubuntu 7.10 and the latest version of wine, i believe its .58

I have changed nothing to XP/linux around the time of failure, I have not installed/removed any software or altered any settings, the only thing that has changed is getting the latest world of warcraft patch, but like I say it works fine when I boot to XP

Please help, booting into windows hurts more each time i do it... :P

Thanks

EDIT: also, from googling I have seen this issue can occur in windows (luckily it hasnt for me, otherwise me=cold turkey!)

Its rumoured the cause is due to a system restore, yet I havent done one of those? I've also been advised to have wine simulate a windows boot, but I have no idea how to achieve that, and google hasn't helped much either. :S

Jayla, you are not alone, I have the same issue ever since patch 2.4. Same client.cpp error now with Wine.

The only difference in our setup is that I am running Linux (OpenSuSe 10.3) standalone on my desktop, my laptop is loaded w/ XP. The WoW files are located on a USB external HD.

Prior to patch 2.4 I was able to run WoW equally well under the Laptop or Linux box (hardware differences aside).

Blizzard site indicates this problem has occured with users using XP and WoW over various patches, and incompatible software components is generally blamed, but this does not explain why the EXE runs fine in XP, but all of a sudden not Wine, unless they changed some internal processes in the way the executable accesses certain files (in this case client.cpp).

Anybody please, if you have input please help. I am currently having to run WoW on my XP Craptop while my top of the line Linux box is used to check email and post on bulletin boards!

Styken, Finally! someone who has the same issue

I have run a search for client.cpp on my XP side but there is no such file, i've searched through hidden and system folders but nothing. Strange, as in that case I'd assume XP would have trouble loading the game too

I've tried a wineboot, and even uninstalled wine (.48) and installed the latest version, and it still didnt work

Have tried changing the environment to XP, 2000, nt4 etc etc, same, no luck

Styken, have you considered re-installing? I'm trying to avoid this as the only installation files I have are the original game disks, and would most likely take a whole weekend to patch. If you use msn please add me on jimmy(at)teamstag(dot)co(dot)uk

Maybe we can work together to find a solution, and obviously post it here when found :P

Cheers

I have performed a "Repair" of the Warcraft files using their own repair client. It shows no errors. I have not done a re-install of Warcraft for the same reasons quoted above, the patches would take forever to download (even on a broadband connection, Blizzard apparently does not allocate much bandwidth for patches). And my fear is that after it patches back up to 2.4, we are back at square one with the same error. Is there some kind of file (the WTF config file, for instance) or other pointer I can reconfigure? Anybody?
