RE: Minimap works as of WoW patch 3.1.0 for ATI users

Well I re-checked it this evening in Stormwind etc. The minimap now works and i did not change anything on the settings apart from upgrading to wine 1.1.20. I Use playonlinux with the advanced configuration plugin. I re-checked that the settings were not on pbuffer but on backbuffer. I know for sure that the Catalyst driver 9.2 was not updated.
Another good thing is that we now also have hardware cursor support.
So Blizzard is doing good things for the Mac Users and thereby the Linux users :-)
I can't find any exact info in the changelog of WoW about the minimap, but since patch 3.1.0 I see Mac Users complain about problems with the minimap so something definetely changed to the good for us :-)
Now I could think on getting an AMD videocard instead of being restricted to NVidia.
