I actually had the game running a week ago and was able to start it on several different days.
But of today, it doesn't work anymore.
So I uninstalled wine, uninstalled my graphics drivers, reinstalled both, and reinstalled the game.
It still does not work. All the directories in winecfg and regedit match up perfectly. Starting the Warcraft III.exe shows me the "CD not found" message, but I have learned that this is a mistake and not actually related to the CD drive and copy protection at all.
When I start from disc or start the war3.exe, I instead get a crash report instantly.
But I don't have any clue what it means:
When I start from Konsole, I also get this error message:
err:ole:CoCreateInstance apartment not initialised
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 138 (ATIFGLEXTENSION)
Minor opcode of failed request: 66 ()
Serial number of failed request: 850
Current serial number in output stream: 850
FGLEXTENSION indicates that it's apparently related to my Radean HD 6600 graphics card. But it worked last week with the same card and the same driver. It doesn't now.
Any idea what to do?
