First, it is not working by now, but it is only matter of time... Very short time, coz it is very close and developers of wine and ggclient are making great progress...
You need to open outbound and inboundTCP and UDP port 6112... Same as on wintendo
Just install warcraft 3 + FT + newest patch (can be patched through battle.net or through patch found on Blizzard FTP server)
You need to remove or rename cinematics, because they are not working...
Official GIT / distro packages of wine does not have AcceptEX support which is needed for network warcraft 3 playing...
So you have to download wine from GIT, and patch it with a patch from this bug (due to this you can host games of course with configured firewall, forwarded ports and/or public IP): 9787
Get the patch from: http://repo.or.cz/w/wine/hacks.git
How to patch wine:
- How to use git is on wine wiki, so download the source.
git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git ~/wine-git
- Now patch your wine with
patch -p1 < path/to/the.patch
- How to compile wine from source is in wine source README (just run ./tools/wineinstall )
So now you have working FT and you can host / join battle.net and LAN games (notice that after hosting a game you must restart w3tft before hosting another game - otherwise no-one can connect)
Now install Garena 2.4 (i have tried the Zip Install Version(All language) Download (For Cafe/Limited Users) - mirror 1, or Zip Install Version(All language) Download (For Cafe/Limited Users) - mirror 2 which installs and runs very fine)
Remove the gg.smf from garena install dir.- this will disable the garena skin - some of dropdown menus are not working with it.
Run garena and log-in.
Wow! You can chat, open tunnels, join into rooms etc etc... :P
Now open garena settings for warcraft 3 RPG and fill in:
Executable Settings: C:\Program Files\Warcraft III\war3.exe (path to your war3.exe in the wintendo way)
Game Bootstrap Parameters: -opengl
Now if you hit Start Game your wc3:tft starts successfully. You are done! :P
Please test garena on your linux boxes and report here AND on garena forum HERE
Also much info you can get in Frozen Throne Appdb page
