    wow crash

    i got wine installed, brought over my wow install from windows, made changes to the config file, used mozilla and active x. When i load up wow, comes up great, i log in fine, pick my char. then when it loads up into the game it locked up?
    anyone know what to do about this?
    also is it still safe to play wow in linux, i have read something about people getting banned from wow for this, because the warden thinks they are using a cheat device.
    Thanks a ton!

    I have a similar problem and it gets fixed if I uncheck "Allow Pixel Shader (if supported by hardware)" option in the Graphics tab in winecfg.

    I am running WoW on a Gateway MX6960 with a 945M Intel video card.

    I did what you said to and it worked, i was able to move arround, but my char. did now show up, just my pet? Also the game was very sluggish, and my mouse had much lag seemed very slow moving.

    Same here unfortunately
    I can get it to a playable level if I change the terrain distance to a minimum value in the video settings.
    I am using Direct 3D instead of OpenGL because for me OpenGL seems to be buggy (character textures are all over the place).

    Try setting gxApi to d3d.
    This is my file, it's in WTF folder in the WoW installation folder.

    Thank you for posting the wow config file!
    However i was unaware that i had other options besides opengl. Could someone tell me how to change/then run wow in this other way?
