    Guild Wars wont start


    I didnt find a thread here for this, so i'll post it here.

    It is so when i try to start the game Guild Wars a rong message comes up and tells me:

    Code:
    Unable to initialize 3D output. Plese verify that you have installed DirectX 8 and an updated video driver.
    Click the URL below to open a web page with more information.
    
    http://www.guildwars.com/support/3d-init-failure.html
    But the strange is i already have 3D acceleration:

    Code:
    $ glxinfo |grep direct
    direct rendering: Yes
        GL_EXT_depth_bounds_test, GL_EXT_direct_state_access
    I installed the nvidia graphics as told at The Unofficial Fedora FAQ (just scroll down the page, think its far down on it) driver by:

    Code:
    yum install kmod-nvidia

    And it went fine, after this i had direct rendering and 3D acceleration. But Guild Wars wont run.
    I also added the reg keys in Wines regedit that where on Wines application database for the game.

    I use Fedora 10 KDE 4.2.0 x64 with Wine version 1.1.14

    And i also ran Guild Wars from command and the terminal gave me this:

    Code:
    wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe" -dx8 -noshaders -opengl
    err:d3d:WineD3D_CreateFakeGLContext Can't find a suitable iPixelFormat
    err:d3d:InitAdapters Failed to get a gl context for default adapter
    err:d3d:WineDirect3DCreate Direct3D9 is not available without opengl
    err:d3d:WineDirect3DCreate Direct3D8 is not available without opengl
    err:d3d:WineDirect3DCreate Direct3D8 is not available without opengl
    err:d3d:WineDirect3DCreate Direct3D8 is not available without opengl
    How do i fix this in Fedora 10 KDE 4.2.0 x64?

    I have made it work now. The package "xorg-x11-drv-nvidia (i386)" wasnt there.
    So i installed it by:
    Code:
    yum install kmod-nvidia xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i386
    To everyone that has the same problem as i had with Fedora 10 x64bit (or x32bit) just run this command and install it and it should work.
