    Game won't recognize 3d graphics acceleration


    I am trying to run Neverwinter Nights: 2 through wine. The game starts and error messages saying that my graphics card does not have 3d acceleration. I checked my drivers and they are all installed.

    i have a nvidia gforce 3400+ and the driver installed is for 3d acceleration

    can anyone help?

    What version of WINE are you using?

    And you're sure you have proper 3D acceleration? What distribution of Linux are you using? Do any other 3D games (in WINE or native Linux) work?

    Just in case, post the output for this:

    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep -n3 direct
    Also, consider that maybe your video card is lacking some essential opengl extension or something. I have a 6200 nVidia and can launch nwn2 under wine without a problem. It's completely unplayable once I am on scene, though.

    care to elaborate on the missing opengl extension?

    That seems right.

    Looking at the whole output of glxinfo you will see them all. These extensions depends on two things: the hardware and the drivers. Some programs might need any special extension to run, for example, compiz (and compositing in general) needs GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap.

    I don't really know if this is applicable to wine, because it might implement those extensions internally and serve them in any other way instead of passing them to the drivers/hardware... It's just something that slipped onto my mind.

    In any case, you might want to ask on the wine site and check the wine application db to see if anyone is having a similar problem. For me it just ran out of the box. It's unplayable, but it runs.

    Some other things that I think you could try is:

    1.- disable compositing, compiz and alikes if you are using any
    2.- disable xinerama, just in case
    3.- update your nvidia drivers if you haven't yet
    4.- apply all available patches to nwn2

    Just some things to try...
