Question Warcraft + wine?


Ok.. so i heard playing WoW on linux often runs better than in windows but im having some trouble with bugs and glitches..

i tried setting graphics to openGL and turning the settings to minimum but to no avail. :/


I've also done the regedit and added the registry value but that just makes it crash or lagg to the point where it's unplayable.


here's what it looks like:

I've played around with Wine and WoW. The best place for resources is checking the Wine pages for their AppDatabase and looking at the settings they used there.

BTW just so you know, Blizzard does not offically support Wine and in some cases they have banned accounts because it falsely alerts for a bot or other application. If you are a serious raider I would be careful with the accounts you use and just be aware of possible problems.

Hope this helps!
