Howto: Installing World Of Warcraft with Wine
Part 1: Configuring Wine
Download the latest source code for wine, extract it into a directory. www.winehq.com
Download these patches
place these patches in the top directory of the wine source then open up counsle and type:
patch -p1 < wine-wow-fixes.patch
patch -p1 < wine-cvs-glx.diff
make depend && make
At this point you will want to run wine to make your fake C:\ drive.
Now we need some dll's and the mozzila active x control dowload them here
mozzila active x: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/w...2.exe?download
Now we can put the .dll files in the system folder:
mv msvcp60.dll mfc42 ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
1. In the Applications tab change Windows version to Windows XP
2. In the Graphics tab:
1. Enable Pixel Shaders
2. Set Vertex Shader to Hardware
3. Enable Allow the window manager to control the windows
3. In the Audio tab set to OSS output
Part 2: Installing World of Warcraft
Now well install World of Warcraft. Get out your cd's and copy all of the first CD to a directory, after this copy the MPQ's from the rest of the CD's to the same directory.
for example(for the first cd)
wine /directory/were/you copied the cd's/installer.exe
Once you have installed WoW, the /World of Warcraft/wtf/Config.wtf file needs to be modified. Add the following lines:
SET gxApi "opengl" SET SoundOutputSystem "1" SET SoundBufferSize "100" SET gxColorBits "24" SET gxDepthBits "24"
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/worldofwarcraft/wow.exe -opengl
After this you should have a great gaming experiance, although its debatable, in my opinion it runs even smoother than in windows, with a 65-80 fps constant, on my hardware.
