NOTE: It is HIGHLY recommended for ATI users to use the latest Catalyst package found at ati.amd.com. As of release 9.8, this fixes TONS of bugs.
NOTE: It is HIGHLY recommended that you have the latest stable wine version installed (currently - wine 1.2.1).
[Beta versions of wine are
unstable. If you use a Beta version, check the test results above to see
if it is reported as working with your Linux distribution].
nVidia / ATI : Make sure you have the proprietary driver for your
video card installed, or WoW will not run. Once they are installed,
check to see if Direct Rendering is enabled by typing the following code
into Terminal :-
glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
If it returns direct rendering:Yes, you're good to go!
[ You can install World of Warcraft in wine through a
variety of methods, such as using the CD or automatic downloader. It's your
choice ultimately. ]
To install using the downloader just run it with Wine and follow
the steps. There are no major problems using the downloader. If you are
using the downloader you can jump straight to the Configuring section.
Below are the instructions for installing from WoW Disks :-
To install from the CDs the files need to be copied over to your
computer as attempting to install directly from disk will result in
Create a folder in a convenient location such as on the desktop called wow_install
You will only need to install WoW using the Wrath of the
Lich King disks. (The Wrath disks will install the WoW core game and
the Burning Crusde as well)
Insert Disk 1 of the Wrath of the Lich King.
When you open the disk you will not be able to see all the files as
they are hidden. To get them to show run the following code in Terminal
Then open the disk again and you should see all the files.
Open the disk and copy all the files to your wow_install folder.
Now insert Disk 2 of the Wrath of the Litch King and follow the same step above to unhide the files.
Copy only the Installer Tome #.mpq files to the wow_install folder. (# will be a number. Basically from Disk 2 copy only the Installer Tomes that have a number in their name (NOT the one without a number, we got that one from Disk 1)).
Once complete eject the disk and run the Installer.exe in the wow_install folder with wine. (Simply right click it and select "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader").
WoW will now install.
Once the installation is complete a shortcut will be on the desktop
to run WoW. Of course you will have to go through the patching process.
Note: A few people have reported that the installer just sits at "Preparing to Install". A solution is to ensure that you have the correct ports opened on your firewall or to temporarily disable your firewall. Make sure you edit / disable your firewall in your router (and on your distro if you use one).
Note: Some users report that the WoW
launcher/updater may freeze during the patching process. If this happens
to you, simply close it down (terminate the process) and then just
start it again from the desktop shortcut or Launcher.exe. It will carry on from where it was before.
Note: WoW may experience problems if you are attempting to run it from a Windows partition. The WoW folder must NOT be in an NTFS filesystem. Ensure the folder you are running WoW from is in your Linux partition, under your Linux filesystem.
IMPORTANT - Make sure you go through the Configuring section below.
IMPORTANT - Linux distributions using pulseaudio (such as Ubuntu) will probably experience sound issues. See the"No sound with Pulse Audio" section in the Tweaks and Troubleshooting area below for a fix. Also note that sound quality may not operate at its best with WINE, despite which *nix you are running WINE under.
IMPORTANT - Launch WoW from the desktop shortcut or from the Launcher.exe rather than directly from WoW.exe.
This is because the launcher will check for updates and will auto
patch/update the game if necessary. If you launch WoW directly from the WoW.exe (such as in the "No sound with Pulse Audio" fix), then make sure you still launch the Launcher.exe from time to time just to check for updates, not to run the game.
The suggested way to run World of Warcraft in wine is using OpenGL. You
will often gain tons of FPS this way. Operation without the opengl flag
is often unreliable and will not start with some cards.
Simply add the -opengl flag to the end of your WoW Launcher (recommended) :-
Open the WoW desktop shortcut (Right Click > Properties) and add -opengl to the end of the command (leaving a space). (Recommended method). (Recommended for first run after CD or download).
NOTE: As of patch 4.0.1 hardware cursor functionality has been added for OpenGL mode.
Alternatively, you can either edit your WTF/Config.wtf in your World of
Warcraft directory to include :-
SET gxApi "opengl"
(Note that this file is only created after
you have logged in once).
The game will now run. If you have any problems or issues please check the sections below for fixes or post a comment for help.
You should be good to go! If you are experiencing any other issues, read on.
It should be noted that sound implementation of WINE is still mostly incomplete and you may be subject to buggy sound or bad quality.
If you cannot get any sound at all, try deleting your .wine directory (backup needed files!)
- On Ubuntu, you can find your .wine directory by going to your Home folder, and pressing CTRL + H
No sound with Pulse Audio
for those users with a distro using pulse audio (for ex. Ubuntu) if you
set wine to OSS the sound for WoW works great, and if you add padsp
before wine pulseaudio wraps the OSS sound (like alsa-oss but better)
and you can use vent, music etc at the same time :)" ~ Thanks to Patrick Arman
Launch Code :-
padsp wine /path/to/wow/WoW.exe -opengl
No sound with ALSA
No sound with OSS
No sound with JACK
Try ALSA or OSS
- If your sound stutters then there is not much you can do about it apart from adjusting your sound driver in WINE. There are various drivers and settings (e.g. ALSA, OSS, Emulation Mode) which you can try. Do note than Windows 7 mode seems to still be incompatable with many of the WINE sound drivers. Best is to use wither Windows 2000 or Windows XP mode.
- Also try the "padsp wine" command in the terminal.
Unfortunately, most sound stutter problems are a result of bugs in WINE, especially with PulseAudio distros. In time, these issues may be solved. But for now, try to fiddle around with the settings until you get the correct combination.
Bad sound quality or latency:
Its highly likely that this is due to WINE, but first try to fiddle around with your sound settings before drawing to that conclusion. If you are not satisfied with the quality of the sound you get, then feel free to include that in your test results.
Graphics corruption when doing certain quests which causes you to appear to be in a nether world:
First make sure your drivers are updated!
Make sure triple-buffering is turned off. ~ Thanks to DRH
Intel does not make its own drivers for their cards for Linux. Their
Windows drivers aren't even that good to start with.
World of Warcraft to work properly, you need to look for an Open Source
Intel Driver that gives you direct OpenGL rendering support. Most dristros will have already had a good driver implemented into the kernel, particularly Ubuntu. So you need not worry about it.
There are no known Issues with Intel Cards, however, it should be expected that the FPS will be lower as the Intel chips are integrated and hence share their video memory with the computer's main RAM as well as makes use of extra processing from the CPU.
Open Source Graphics Drivers:
you have low frames with your Open Source drivers, then try the
proprietary drivers for ATI and Nvidia. The Open Source Drivers have a
lot of performance issues at the moment.
- Ensure that you have disabled any special desktop effects
- Set farclip (the view distance slider) to 777 (about midway on the slider) ~ Thanks to Andrew
Bad FPS in general:
- Make sure that your latency bar is not red.
- Please set the MaxFPS setting to at least 20-30. This
will decrease the resource taking of the game on the computer and thus
result in lower temperatures. This will increase the game's performance
quite a lot. ~ Thanks to Xio - Ensure your CPU is not being overloaded with instructions. In other words, whether or not its usage is 100%
- Ensure that you are running the game in OpenGL mode.
You can do this by either adding SET GxApi "OpenGL" in the config.wtf or
passing the -opengl argument in the terminal.
- AMD users will want to ensure that AMD Cool 'n Quiet is disabled in the BIOS. Please see your motherboard manufacturer's site documentation for more details on how to do this.
- Make sure the CPU scaling governor is set to "Performance" rather than "OnDemand"~ thanks to Vidar Wahlberg.
NB: If you
have a multi-core processor, chances are that your FPS drops is caused
WoW not identifying your cores correctly. A user has submitted a
patch that might solve
this for you if you compile it alongside WINE
from source: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11674#c64 ~ Thanks to Vitality
No higher-level shadows or water effects available
This will not be available for the OpenGL mode until such a time Blizzard chooses to implement it, which is highly unlikely.
Bad graphical corruption in certain areas with Direct3D
Find the following registry entry:
Add a new key (type String) and name it 'OffscreenRenderingMode'
Double click the new key and add the value 'pbuffer'
If you are finding that WoW is installing correctly but at the final step of logging in you receive an error message "There was an error logging in..." try the fix below :-
The problem is related to DLL files needed for the process being unable to "communicate" with each other.
Add the following DLL override to your Libraries tab of Winecfg :-
This should solve the issue and login should not work.
WoW may fail if you are running it from a windows partition. The WoW folder cannot be in an NTFS filesystem. Copy your WoW folder over to your Linux filesystem.
Try to see if your kernel is up-to-date. New kernel releases should appear in your distrubution's update manager.
It is also a good idea to use the kernels that is released by your distro and not compile them yourself as they usually interface better with the entire system in general.
In some distros, particularly the non-Ubuntu ones, you may need to reinstall your proprietary video drivers in order to be able to make use of 3D acceleration once again. Please do so.
Other Known Issues:
Sunshafts cannot be enabled in d3d mode:
This is due to the lack of a certain type of texture support in WINE's direct3d API. It will be corrected in version 1.3.7. Please note that sunshafts is currently non-existent in the OpenGL mode. More info at: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24928
WoW not recognising shader model 3 in OpenGL:
World of Warcraft's OpenGL mode for the Windows client does not support anything higher than shader model 2. Thus, it will not be possible to make use of this.
