Warcraft III world editor, anyone?

Postby guice » Sun Mar 29, 2009 3:49 pm

Have anyone here gotten the Warcraft III world editor working, in any way at all? I've been fooling around with virtualbox and wine, but now I'm out of ideas. It starts up in wine, but with extreme graphical bugs, making it impossible to use. It won't start up in virtualbox at all, some directx-stuff problem I guess, and it won't run in opengl in virtualbox (at least I can't get it to run in opengl).

Have any of you guys ever gotten this application to work in Linux Mint or Ubuntu? If so, I'd be glad to hear how you did :)

just to let you know, virtualbox v2.2 adds hardware acceleration support, so hopefully this might work for you. Personally I'd recommend just waiting until this version appears in the repos (especially for the ose), but if you want to try it out now, it is available as a deb you can just double click to install from http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/2.2.0/virtualbox-2.2_2.2.0-45846_Ubuntu_intrepid_i386.deb
