World of Warcraft (Goodbye Windows XP)

Postby NicWoW » Fri Sep 12, 2008 8:28 pm

First of all hi.
Now I wanna tell you the only reason I was still using Windows up to today.
WoW (World of Warcraft). Some of you might say why not use wine right?
Well i tried, repeatetly and failed miserably.
Tonight i came home determined to find a way to solve my problem, the only reason I m still stuck on windows....and I DID :p
Again I used wine but with some minor reconfigurations to the program itself and to the registry.
Below you can see the link from were i got the information.
Some extra info regarding the guide: DO NOT perform the actions of step 3 about the sound output being OSS, it might say it is optional but unfortunately enabling it causes WoW not to have any sound output.
I of course do not take the creadit for it, im simply the messenger of good news :p
Oh btw for some reason the fps is increased and the game looks and feels smoother. From 75 fps that I originaly had I am now on 110 fps minimum and 250 maximum, i reckon in dungeons and raids were the fps rises, i might even have 200 average.
Ok that's it from me.
Enjoy :)

P.S. If you need any assistance or any clarification don't be shy :p

Great News! So what else have you tried under wine?
Some people like to look out of the window. Some others prefer to look at the curtains instead!

Well actually nothing else, but im positive that since WoW works most "big" games will.
Also Knight Online another major MMORPG game i looked into does not seem to work properly with Wine.
Install the game in Ubuntu directory and even the load screen starts but from there on it stops working.
I have in mind another free MMORPG suitable both for Linux and Windows, it's called Regnum online and for a free game actually it looks pretty good.
Here is the official page http://www.regnumonline.com.ar/index.ph ... =undefined and also a youtube link for a small preview http://www.regnumonline.com.ar/index.ph ... =undefined.

I haven't myself given it a try but you can and let us all know :p
Also use this address whenever you need to find out whether or not a game will work with wine http://appdb.winehq.org/.
Top of the Platinum list as you can see is the "legendary" FREE Guild Wars. It is free in the sense that you bye it from the store once and no online fees apply.
Below you can see the top 10 Gold games.
As you understand the compatibility of each game is characterized by Platinum as the most compatible Gold as the second most compatible Silver as the least most compatible and Garbage as the not compatible ones (yet :p)
Below find a page for some top MMOPRG's:

Well that's it today for me guys, i burned enough brain cells for the day posting, need to save some for the WoW brain cell barbeque tonight :p

C U all

Be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
