World of Warcraft with Crossover start-up problem

Hiya Gang..

I installed WoW using Crossover. The install went smooth, but when I go to start the game, the full screen goes black for a few seconds but then crashes and I get this window:

Quote:
Your 3D accelerator card is not supported by World of Warcraft. Please install a 3D accelerator card with dual-TMU support.
Now, my card is nvidia GeForce 7600, 256mg. More then enough.

I have no idea what a dual-TMU support is??

And yep, I have the latest nvidia drivers installed here on F8

Anybody have any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi,

You might try checking the output of

glxinfo | grep rendering

Just to see if you have your direct rendering enabled

WoW seems to work very well with wine. I have never tried crossover.
This guide may help as well.

I did it 2 days ago or so it said yes
Now it says no Oo
How can i check what video card i have (changed PC recently) so i can get drivers for it (coz it was running on windows very well until my fire wall broke and windows was gone)....
My problem is: it starts but loading screen (where you have to login) is buged heavily... its grey outline of dark portal, often on Pink (Oo) back ground....

Ok..this might be a problem.

I checked out Google and did some research. It seems as if my drivers might not be the right one to run WoW specifically.

Please check this link and see what I mean.

This is beyond me. From what I gather, it does not matter whether you use Wine, Crossover or Cedega to run this. The native X drivers are wrong.

My present driver is 169 as per my nvidia settings. Can you or should I roll back the driver??? That sounds scary to me.

Anybody offer any ideas?

By the way, TMU stands for "Texture Mapping Unit". Now you know.

Erm, did you install that driver?
I found a big list of build in drivers on gnome panel @
System --> Administration --> Display
And there under Hardware you can set video card --> seatings and choose type of card driver yours is (it worked for me)....
BTW, do you know how to get it into windowed mode?

Ok, WoW seems to be working now. It must have been a driver issue, but I am using Crossover, but I will soon see if Wine works better.

But for now, all is well.

See my toon below.

I'm running it on wine myself without issue, average around 70-80fps, 30fps in the middle of Stormwind when it's busy.

I do have a small issue of stuttering when I am running or turning in a circle. Do you have ideas for that?

Perhaps your settings are a bit more tweaked then mine!

Thanks!

No tweaked settings at all, I used to run it direct from the Windows install location (mounted with ntfs-3g) and just pass '-opengl' to switch it to OpenGL mode, now I do the same but from a file server.

It worked fine on both my new PC and old - 1.8Ghz, 1GB RAM, GeForce 6200, the only difference between the two was the FPS.
