World Of Warcraft; Is it playable in Mint?

Postby Striven on Sat Mar 14, 2009 2:05 am

Hey all, im new to this version of linux, well linux in general.
But i was just wondering how do i get wow to work?
i have been trying to use 'wine' but it doesnt seem to work.

This is what happens so far:
I can run the game, login, select character
but when im actually ingame everything is like black/dark
you can still see stuff but its just not out putting the right
colors.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I have been using WoW now for a few weeks without an issue. I used the information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/World ... figuration to fix graphical errors. I would suggest using this resource to see if any of these fix the issue you are having.

I've played it on a private server some time ago without a problem using Wine. You might want to try selecting "Emulate a Virtual Desktop" in the Wine configuration under Graphics settings. That can oftentimes help problems like this.
