Hi,

Wine is OK for running windows games. But Cedega is better!

Cedega is based on the Wine project but has been developed by Transgaming to specifically support Windows Games on Linux.

http://www.transgaming.com/

EDIT: I have just checked and Cedega officially supports WoW for linux now!

You can download the sourcecode version and compile it for free. You should pay the $3 for the Packaged versions. I reckon that an E-Mule or other Peer 2 peer search will probably find a copy of the RPM version. Though if you use it you should buy it!

EDIT: To get Cedega for free you need to install/compile the CVS version. Instructions can be found at: http://transgaming.org/cvs/

Andy

Has anyone tested to see if the CVS Cedaga is faster than Wine 0.9.16?

[burzmali@localhost ~]$ glxgears
47392 frames in 5.0 seconds = 9478.329 FPS
66795 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13358.856 FPS
65479 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13095.698 FPS
66099 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13219.618 FPS
66121 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13224.054 FPS


For Nvidia 6800GS. What ATI card do you have?

Cedega has better directX support which should work much much better then using wine with opengl

I messed around with it alot, there are always a few bugs. Its really really much better to just run it in windows, the ammount of time you spend trying to get it to work right and then redo it with each patch and they you dont get something thats completly stable makes it better to just run it in windows.

Another option im looking which is looking good is running windows with a VM machine running linux, then you can switch between the two as both are running. check out wikipedia for VMware

In the last wine release 0.9.16 there was a rewrite from some DirectX parts. In the wine-appdb ( http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?versionId=5109 ) they say that it works with the new release.

I run WoW with Cedega.... it runs it great. I found that WINE didn't run some parts of the game correctly. I run mine with an nVidia 4200TI (I know its old) and it runs and looks great with hardly any lag... I have also run Everquest on Cedega with the nVidia 4200Ti and on my ATI 9600 pro. With Cedega Linux actually ran Everquest better than when I had windows loaded on the same machine. WoW runs about the same. Using the updater requires a few other packages to be loaded but it is all explained on the Transgaming Forum that you get access to only if you have a paid account.

IMHO Cedega is worth paying for... you get updates, and more game support, access to the forums and you get to vote on the next thing the company is working on support for...

Hope that helps
