What was not tested


Additional Comments

Used the GLSL disabled in Wine to get decent FPS with in game settings at 7 and wow client using Directx 9.  Rolled back to 2-11 staging, and DX11 works again, so an update or code change has been introduced that breaks DX11 in version 2.12 development.

Wine 2.12 breaks DX11 in WoW 7.2.5
by Steve Ebey on Friday July 14th 2017, 11:42
After installing the Development 2.12 my FPS in wow dropped to 1 and the game became completely unresponsive. Switched to DX9 and set GLSL to disabled with winetricks. FPS now around 45-50 in world, 20-22 in Dalaran-Broken Shores, 18 in combat, solo or raid. Running Fedora 26, kernel 4.11.9-300 selinux set to permissive.
2.10 staging same issue
by godson on Tuesday June 20th 2017, 6:44
I have been using staging just fine with DX11 and although I get FPS dropouts in Dalaran and raid or PvP environments it's pretty stable with decent output. I recently updated the WoW client (and perhaps wine) but now I can login but after 10-20 seconds on the character screen my game locks up.

The only playable way I have found so far is to revert to 2.10 devel and switch back to DX9 on a lowered graphics setting. I am getting stable FPS but obviously something is wrong with staging and the updated patch.
64bit client freezes/crashes upon login
by HeyCitizen on Saturday June 17th 2017, 19:43
Been having this issue with the 64-bit live client, it started about a day before the 7.2.5 patch dropped: 5-10 seconds after login, the game freezes (need to kill with xkill or wineserver -k).

I tried nuking my addons/settings, eventually reinstalling the entire game in a new 64bit prefix. I tried wine-staging and wine-staging-git, also recompiled the git version with 'march=native' as suggested in another thread. At the time, the 7.2.5 PTR still worked fine, so I hoped the 7.2.5 patch would magically resolve the issue, and it did! But alas, since another hotfix was pushed, I am back to square one. PTR still works fine, but live still crashes seconds after login.

I can play for a little while using the 32bit client, but it doesn't give me the same performace and it runs out of memory and crashes which kinda cramps my playstyle.

Any thoughts?
Need 7.2.5 Game Files
by Entilzha on Saturday June 17th 2017, 18:24
Since my Windows PC died I've been able to get onto private servers of various expansions just fine, but the launcher, I cannot get to run, does nothing but crash. I think if I had all of the game files for 7.2.5 I should be able to connect to live without the launcher, but I need those. If anyone could help out by either directing me to a direct download of the files, or uploading your wow directory to some google drive accounts. I think I can get this to work if I can avoid the launcher.
No way to enable surround-sound?
by Jon on Friday June 9th 2017, 23:58
I have a "5.1" channel speaker setup on a "7.1" onboard soundcard. Regardless of my ALSA configuration, WoW only recognizes 2 channels. The console tool "speaker-test" and numerous other programs confirm ALSA is configured correctly. The audio tab in winecfg recognizes 5.1 availability and I set all the outputs to 5.1 from the default of stereo. I even tried to put this in my ~/.asoundrc:

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "surround51"

That actually worked on speaker-test, but had no effect on the available sound configurations in WoW. I get sound from all 6 speakers, but the World\ of\ Warcraft/Logs/Sound.log file confirms it's still stereo, and not only that, the sample rate is only 44.1 kHz while my soundcard is actually physically 48 kHz. I've tested this up to the latest 2.9 wine-staging, the problem exists in every version. Is this really the best it can do?

Running wow-64.exe, all the reg hacks worked except useglsl disabled. when i try that, wow-64.exe complained about no 3D. set to enabled, game works. decent performance on my amd fx-6300 with geforce gtx 970 and nvidia proprietary version 381.22. No more logging to windows to play one game. game config is using DX11, and i am running wine staging 2.8, linux kernel 4.10.17.

BattleNet Launcher display issues
by Atonner on Saturday May 6th 2017, 8:13
I'm currently running F24, and wine-staging from the WineHQ repo. (currently 2.7)
I've been running WoW in wine for years, and I'm finding that the DX11 works quite well right now.
Oddly I have 2 minor issues on the launcher:

1: when the launcher prompts for login the standard login setup seems to fail, and a secondary login box pops down, presenting a plain white dialog box set for login. This login works, it is just ... less visually appealing shall we say (and somewhat concerning)

2: Once the launcher comes up I'm no longer seeing the "news" block in the centre of the launcher window, what there is are two small grey blocks in the top left of the 'news' block space -- all other features work correctly.

I originally thought this was a gecko issue as the issue described in 1: appears to be a browser session cookie issue (according to the windows side of the userbase) This issue occurs in a clean .wine prefix with gecko 2.47 confirmed to be installed and working.

is anyone else seeing this issue and does anyone have any clues on how to tidy this up?

"Retrieving Realm List"
by Raymond Child on Thursday April 13th 2017, 0:15
Have been playing wow for the last week, logged on this morning, and the game would get stuck at "retrieving realm list" and not connect. Nothing had changed on my computer since yesterday, and cannot figure out why it has suddenly done this.

Spontaneous reboots
by Michiel on Monday April 3rd 2017, 5:28
Since april 2nd I encounter sudden and spontaneous reboots; In the middle of running around in a not-too-crowded area, where the system performs smooth, all of a sudden my system reboots. In the past I've seen this as well, but then I related it to thermal issues. I fixed those and monitor my system with monitorix; there I see no enormous spikes in temperature, everything is below 60C. Thermal problems seem unlikely.
Anyone else who encounters this?

The problem seemed (it's hard to determine, because the moments it happens seems quite random) to lessen when I switched back to Wine 2.4 (was on Wine 2.5) and removed the override that would set the application to run win7 mode. (It's now back to win-xp :-o)

There's plenty of memory (16GB) (besides, I've had that error 'using too much memory' while there was still plenty available), the NVidia card is only 20% busy at most, the CPU is not overly busy either.

One thing I have to do yet is run a memory test; could be one of the banks is faulty (?) that would cause these reboots as well... maybe others have similar issues, so was curious.

Key delays
by Jase Whipp on Monday March 27th 2017, 16:52
I've looked everywhere I can think of for an answer to this problem. I'm running Ubuntu Unity, whenever I press and hold a key in WoW the character will keep moving after I've released the key. Anyone else have this issue and no how to fix it?

Wine vs Windows comparison
by Dmitry Belyakin on Monday March 20th 2017, 13:53
Hello guys!
Just installed Windows to compare performance on my laptop (i7-3537U 2 cores + 2 hyper threading cores + 740M Nvidia) with Wine, and I've got the following results:
1. At first look, performance is the same for Win dx9 and Wine dx9, seems that it is smoother on Win but more stable in FPS with Wine overall (as for me). Dalaran is laggy as hell on both.
2. I tried to enable dx11 on Windows and it works amazingly! No lags in Dalaran, stable FPS. I didn't try raids, but it shoud be ok as well.

The only conclusion is that Legion well optimized for dx11 and poor optimized for dx9, but I'm not 100% sure.
I would delete this whole thread if I could - my issues have zilch to do with wine. ;)
by andzer on Thursday March 2nd 2017, 19:35
To really really confirm .. I ripped a hard-disk out of a windows 7 box and stuck it in my notebook, where I have the exact same issue, reboot required and all.

Honestly- gentoo/wine-2.0-rc6 is better fps than windows 7 on this box.

Ill be updating the BIOS now. Wish I could just delete this stuff, haarrr.
Having framerate drops that only go away after reboot.
by andzer on Wednesday March 1st 2017, 22:06
This is confounding ;) .. and sucky ..

Gentoo, kernel 4.4, Nvidia 375.39 drivers, i7-2640M CPU @ 2.80GHz, Quadro NVS 4200M, 8GB ram (A Thinkpad Lenovo T520 laptop.)

After varying lengths of time and definitely not always because of heat, framerate drops from 20-30[softcap] (12-20 in HoV raid,) .. to 1-2fps. - With the settings below I was able to see 60 in Dalaran but it wasn't stable and put my cpu at 97 pretty quick.

---Whats puzzling about it is that only a reboot fixes it---. Exiting the game, making sure wine is not in the process list, and starting over does not fix it.

At first I thought it was a heat issue but I have observed quite a few cases since using "cpupower frequency-set -g powersave" that the cpu was running a nice 'cool' 85 (with the nvidia temp at 81) where the same problem is observed.

Anyone experiencing similiar? have any ideas? Need some more information? Is there an IRC channel specifically for WOW on Wine?

Wine 2.1 performance
by Sveinar Søpler on Thursday February 9th 2017, 14:38
Seems as 2.1 has made quite a decline in performance for WoW. Tested both with and without CSMT, and the perf. difference between them is not as big as 2.0x

However, it seems as DX11 is possible to enable with CSMT now, and thats a step in the right direction! Go devs!! :)

Also looked at the hint that someone felt the performance was a tad better with 2.0-rc6, so since i kinda had to roll back anyway after upgrading to 2.1 today, i gave that a whirl, and from first glance it actually does feel as if 2.0-rc6 has a tad higher perf than the 2.0 release have. Gonna stick with that until next 2.1 release comes along :)

PS. Running 2.0-rc6 i could not get the client to start, but had to start WoW directly... so i guess if a patch comes along ill have to swap between 2.1 and 2.0-rc6 for now.

I can confirm it: Example:
Orgrimmar, auction with many people standing, I have 45 fps with wine 2.0, and 60 fps with wine-staging rc6. I don't know the max value for fps since fps is capped for 60, so I belive it even more than 60!
occasional failure to finish loading when changing zones
by Jon on Friday January 27th 2017, 21:23
I seem to have a relatively new problem lately that seems similar to an old problem which turned out to be a memory leak.

Basically the issue is that (in d3d9 mode, 64-bit WoW client, wine 2.0, using prescribed dll overrides) after changing zones back and forth from raids/dungeons/pvp instances and Dalran (or sometimes just when leaving the class hall) WoW fails to progress past the loading screen. Usually the progress bar freezes part way, like at about 80-90% but not always exactly in the same spot. I still hear audio playing, and the mouse cursor is still present and active, but eventually the harddrive stops running and the zone load never completes. This doesn't happen every time. It seems to mostly only happen after a certain amount of zone changes or elapsed game time. Anyone else seeing this?

Want to use Linux again, but need Warcraft =)
by Action Jackson on Wednesday December 28th 2016, 22:15
I was able to play great before Legion, but had to switch back to windows.

Now, I would like to play again on Linux.

At the moment, I am having pretty massive tearing in the open world, and the environment is -- well, a lot of the time it looks like I'm in the Emerald Nightmare with Xavius =)

I have older hardware, maybe 4-5 years old. But, it plays fine in Windows, so I won't list the spec right now. I know it's definitely not new hardware like I see other's here using.

Using OpenGL, so far. I updated to wine 2.0-rc3, still same issues.

Where would I start to resolve this issue?? Most of the posts seem to suggest they just installed the game, and it mostly worked.

Is there somewhere where I can alter a configuration file or something to get a playable situation.

To All reviewers/testers
by ergo on Wednesday December 28th 2016, 9:24
Make sure to include in testing results your native resolution, used renderer (opengl/d3d9/d3d11).

Above all... test FPS in ZONES from Legion or WoD expansions. Just because you get 90+ FPS in stormwind and nearby zones doesn't mean the game deserves Gold/Platinum rating especially when Legion zones bring down FPS to single digits.

Playing the game with the graphics preset set to 1 shoudn't be rated as gold too. Let me quote you the Bronze rating definition: Bronze
"APPLICATION WORKS, BUT IT HAS SOME ISSUES, even for normal use; a game may not redraw properly or display fonts in wrong colours, BE MUCH SLOWER THAN IT SHOULD ETC".
That's what we all face right now in WoW: much slower than it should.
Cannot Log in
by John Lang on Friday December 23rd 2016, 1:24
I have noticed in the past 2-3 days that i cannot log into wow, it seems to hang on "logging into game server" and then i get the message BLZ51903006. I use Linux Mint, and tried upgrading to new version (18.1) and still not working. The most weird part is that is for the 2 days before this happened, i would get the errors, but only in the late morning, and afternoon. Early morning and nights, the game would log me in, and work fine.

Has this happened to anyone else? Or know what is wrong, and how to fix it :D

Intermittent flicker and lag in Fedora 25
by Anthony Hughes on Friday December 16th 2016, 12:29
Hi, I'm using Fedora 25 64-bit with Gnome 3.22 with an AMD HD 6870 GPU on the open source drivers. Legion works fine for the most part but in certain areas of the game I get this weird crosshatched flickering pattern. When it occurs the frame rate plummets to single digits. I've tried multiple graphics settings in the game and tried switching between wine and crossover - the problem occurs in both. I've tried switching between Wayland and Xorg - the problem occurs in both. I've tried switching between Gnome, KDE, and XFCE - the problem occurs in all three. The problem does not occur however under Ubuntu 16.04 or OpenSuse 42.2. I suspect this might have to do with the newer Mesa version that ships in Fedora 25 but that's just speculation.

Here is a video of the issue:

Has anyone else encountered this? If so, any advice on workarounds? Is this a bug I should file somewhere?

Thanks in advance.

Wow on Wine on Fedora 25 Gnome (Wayland)
by Mr Bultitude on Sunday December 4th 2016, 6:15
I ran into an issue when I installed Wow on Wine (1.9.22) on Fedora 25 Gnome. When I ran wow and was in game, using the mouse to try to move my character caused the camera to spin (somewhat crazily) and go to top/bottom view. In all menu screens and in the mouse worked fine. I knew Fedora 25 Gnome defaulted to wayland, so I went to the login/password screen option and selected "Gnome on xorg". Doing this allowed the game/camera to work just fine.
Unable to connect
by lumirax on Saturday November 19th 2016, 11:56
Hi everyone,

I have installed with wine 1.9.22, and I've got 2 problems :

1st, when I start, I had problem solve by "dbghelp" set to disable to launch application. But when it start I can't connect with my account cause button don't appear, there's's logo just turn and turn and never disappear to let me connect. If you've any idea ? I don't have anymore !

2nd, not a very big problem, but there's a graphic problem it's like there is a mirror on the application , if someone have problem like this and if you have solutions.

Thanks for help !

Camera lag
by ergo on Sunday October 23rd 2016, 12:53
Does anyone experience an extreme lag when switching camera on the latest wine staging (csmt) on d3d9? Whenever I change direction my fps drops from 70-80fps to 20-25fps for a 1-2s. It's extremely annoying.

On the other hand the problem doesn't exist with an opengl renderer but with opengl there is a lot of flickering. install
by Geoffrey on Wednesday October 12th 2016, 17:40
Got a new Solid State Drive for my Linux PC. Started a fresh install of everything of course. While adding the .dll libraries using winecfg (error, add library, restart app, error, repeat) I noticed it was truncating the library names to a specific number of characters. So I did some digging found that it stores the info in .wine/user.reg. I found the area to add the .dll info to. The section I'm refering too looks like this:

[Software\\Wine\\DllOverrides] 1476309412

First time poster, this isn't my first time configuring Wine to run WOW. Those above are all the entries in my "user.reg" file. Hope this helps someone. I'm running wine 1.9.20 with LinuxMint 18 version 1.5.08058. It's installing smoothly now without anymore pop-up errors. Hope I was helpful.
Camera turning lag fix
by Hid on Monday October 10th 2016, 5:54
I had this exact problem (based on your description), what worked for me to completely fix it was to open (in your World of Warcraft/WTF/ folder) and change/add: SET gxTextureCacheSize "1024"

I have a 2GB video card so I chose 1024mb, but if that doesn't work for you, try anything between 32 and 2047mb - 2048 or above caused massive lag for me, while 2047 or lower removes camera turning lag, so make sure to keep it below 2048.

Extreme Lag Issues
by chaslem on Thursday October 6th 2016, 0:25
New to Linux. Went from my setting cap of 60FPS to 20FPS. When I spin or move or do anything there is a lot of lag.

Console FPS tests report 60FPS.

Here is some info:

OpenGL Renderer - Mesa DRI Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2)
Processor - 4x Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6300U CPU @ 2.40GHz
Graphics - Intel Corp Sky Lake Integrated Graphics (rev 07)

Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS

Things I've done:
Regedit OpenGL fix
Went to and updated SET gxApi "OpenGL" (got this error when trying to open wow: WOW was unable to start up 3D acceleration)
Set graphics control from 2-4 (Same fps and problem regardless)

What do I need to do to solve this FPS issue?

Very Poor performance with Nvidia GTX 1070
by erika jonell on Thursday September 22nd 2016, 8:52

TL;DR: nvidia GTX 1070 appears to not work well at all with latest wine & wow; suspect due to immaturity of drivers and/or wine wrt new card hw.

I'm at my wits end, actually past it (since i wiped and went back to win10 - ew ew ew ew)... however, i figured i would post here with all my attempts and what i did to see if someone could point out an error or possible reason why its not working.

first up initial main assumption of why its not working: flaws in 367 and 370 variant drivers when combined with nvidia GTX 1070 amd wine and wow (unconfirmed, but highly suspected given below).

OK, now on to historics. I -had- a gtx 970 rig until, well, bad things happened and i no longer have it. WoW ran well with it, quite well in-fact. I would typically issue __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1 and __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=0; vblank proven through glxgears to boost framerate a ton and threaded opts would help with staging's CSMT... together these worked wonderfully with the 970, with minor tweaking, and acceptable settings (nothing max, but nothing min either) i could easily get +50 fps dx9 in Legion's dalaran. this system was an i7 6700, 16gb ram, ssd, w/ said gtx 970.

built new system: wanted to give AMD a go, bought new FX-8370 (8-core), 16gb ram, Mobo: gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P rev2, etc. w/ new 1070. (am aware of the PCIx 2 limit), shouldn't have had the huge impact as WoW + wine wont push it THAT hard) FYI- runs beautifully on windows regardless so obviously not that big of a limitation... full settings doesnt drop below 40fps in high pop areas.

Linux OS System configs i've tried:
Arch Linux & ubuntu 16.04.1 (w/ nvidia-drvier-ppa)[tried as phoronix shown as using it, figured maybe ubuntu had a kernel tweak i didnt know about).

As for Arch:
--Stock kernel & Zen kernel @ 4.7.x - zen adds BFQ, other great tweaks for desktop usage (also used with 970 rig to great effect)

--DE: Mate (latest available) (personal tests show xfce contributing to 3d accel degredation, which was my goto DE, now not anymore).

--drivers: 1st used nvidia-dkms @ 370.x version (needed to run w/ zen kernel) + added in DRM/KMS via kernel options and initramfs tweaks to make blitting the screen faster (again used w/zen in old rig, ran beautifully).

--as for wine: attempted with 1.9.18/19, and staging variants w/CSMT... w/ d3d9 at LOW settings framerate in dalaran was at best 24fps (when I stared at the ground). w/ opengl (when it worked) similar if not lower (i.e., it was worse than running open-source w/ wine-nine patches & appropriate stack). Additionally, __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATIONS=1 and __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=0 appeared to have no discernable affect in wine when i confirmed they did have an affect outside of wine. NOTE: not using CMST and seemed to have hardly any impact in performance (maybe a 5-10 fps drop at most).

--drivers pt2: thought maybe nouveau was being loaded somehow, while kernel module is loaded, nvidia, nvidia_drm,etc, etc. were also loaded. Xorg log stated nvidia driver in use, lshw and lspci stated card was using proprietary driver as well... purposefully blacklisted the nouveau driver... still appeared in lscpi kernel modules... but not in the "in use", everything else log wise checked out... still same crappy performance. next figured DKMS maybe wiered something up... regressed back to stock proprietary driver, dropped zen, etc etc. got everything back up, no change... same performance... at this poing was getting vary disparaged, so i figured i would give ubuntu a try since i KNOW the 1070 performed well in phoronix's tests which used Ubuntu with the nvidia latest driver ppa. so thats what i did

As for Ubuntu:
--16.04.01 -

--kernel 4.4.x

--DE: unity (actually shown to be very fast for 3d apparently *shrug*)

--drivers: updated w/ nvidia ppa (tried both 370.x and 367.x), as only way to recognize the 1070... confirmed that nvidia proprietary were recognized through xorg logs, lspci, lshw, etc.

--same setup as far as wine 18/19 w/ and w/o staging CSMT... same performance. literally the same.

at this point i was crushed... everything i tried didnt seem to work, i couldnt get any performance out of this card. Worst point is, I even tried with a borrowed RX 480 for shits and giggles with the open-stack + wine-nane (on arch, i couldnt get ubuntu's 16.04 kernel to recognize and load amdgpu driver for the 480); with the wine-nine stack it got better performance than the proprietary nvidia... never did try the nouveau stack (probably should have)

So... thats my story... and why (at present) i'm running windows... if anyone can offer a reasonable suggestion as to whats wrong, i'm willing to setup dual-boot to verify. Until then, i wait patiently for nvidia 1070 driver/wine progress...

by Dif on Thursday September 22nd 2016, 5:03
I resumed the attempts under Linux (I have been playing under Windows for the last few days due to the freeze) since I got the wine-1.9.19 update.

Unfortunately, nothing. I have been playing for a couple of minutes (just moved the mule char from the bank to the AH and did some search) and it freezed. :(

I think it has something to do with the freeze as it sometimes occured before the freeze.

Only a restart of the helps.

Frequent hangs
by Dif on Saturday September 10th 2016, 7:20
Hi all,
since yesterday (09/09/2016) morning (EU CET) the game keeps hanging up. Everything in-game freezes up (I can't move and so everything else, the in-game menu isn't accessible, etc.), but the task manager doesn't report the WoW process as zombie.

It happens no matters what I do, from combat with mobs to standing still. Sometime it happens after minutes after login and sometime after the first movement after login.

I tried to run it from a terminal and the output is the following:

I have been playing for almost a month without issues (therefore I assume it is not something weird in the engine included in the 7.0.3 patch) and I got the last Wine update few days ago (but I played for several hours since I got it up to the night of the 8th, so I assume it isn't a regression of Wine).

My system is composed by:
Wine 1.9.18 (Staging)
Kernel 4.4.6-gentoo
Nvidia drivers 361.28
KDE 5.6.5 with Framework 5.23.0

I did a reboot (more the once) in case there was any hanging process that could interfere, but it didn't solve the problem.

World of Warcraft version
running as Windows 7; running as Windows 8 or 10 made no difference

Adding overrides for ntdsapi (native, builtin)and ntprint (native, builtin) made no difference
Override for msvcp140 (native, builtin) was still required from previous breakage. still runs without crashing.
Getting Error code: BLZBNTAGT00000846
by Julia HB on Saturday August 27th 2016, 12:43
I was playing WoW just fine last Thursday (8/25/16), and then on Friday afternoon, I launched and got an "Update" box instead of the "Play" box on the WoW launch screen of So I clicked "Update". It thought about it for a moment then popped up a dialogue box that said: "We tried to make a file writable but failed. Please log in as an administrator and try again." It gives an "OK" box to check, and then below that: "More help: BLZBNTAGT00000846" When you click on that, it takes you to:

What I need to know is has anyone else gotten this error, and if so, what file is the game complaining about... and how to get a workaround for it. Thanks!
Keyboard input lag
by Joe on Friday August 26th 2016, 18:27
Hi all

I just recently did a fresh-install of 64bit Ubuntu 16.04 after being on 14.04 for a number of years. Since the update I'm having a problem in WoW where my keyboard input is lagging by a few seconds.

Additionally sometimes my key presses also stick (holding W for a bit keeps me running but then after letting go of W I keep running for a few seconds).

There doesn't seem to be anyway to cancel the action until the game just decides to accept new input, which is often very sporadically (sometimes no problems for several minutes, other times this happens continually).

My mouse on the other hand is working flawlessly and responds without issue.

I had this and a few more issues using the standard release of wine. I'm currently using wine-staging which has fixed my FPS problems but the keyboard input is still an issue.

Has anyone experienced this problem lately? I've seen a few threads where people had a similar problem either back in Cataclysm or in a much older version of Ubuntu (~9.0). Unfortunately none of those fixes have helped me out much.

Unable to update in
by John Lopez on Sunday August 14th 2016, 22:24

I just recently reinstalled Linux, running the newest release of Ubuntu, also the newest version of wine, and after installing successfully my WoW always says "Update". Upon clicking it gives me the error "We tried to make a file writable but failed. Please login as administrator and try again." I was under the impression that Wine was always run as admin so I'm not sure what the issue is here - and I would welcome any suggestions. I am fairly new to Linux and am still learning the in's and out's.

Sometimes game freezes for 10-15 seconds. It's very rarely and i can't understand what cause this behavior. Is anyone has the same thing? WoW x64, wine 1.9.16, Nvidia proprietary driver.

I am running and WoW on the new 1.9.16 with no issues to speak of aside from the client displaying with a fully black screen. If you also have this issue, change your OS to Windows Vista under winecfg. This fixed the issue for me.

Aside from this minor issue, WoW is running with FPS comparable to wine-staging 1.9.15 with CSMT enabled, which is a huge improvement over the FPS issues I encountered with 1.9.15 stable. crash

CriticalSection deadlock should be fixed in 1.9.16
by Chris Rankin on Friday August 5th 2016, 8:45

Apparently due to a problem in DLL load order.
catch 22 between performance and launcher
by Insilico on Wednesday August 3rd 2016, 0:50
For those of you running the stable 19.5 version and receiving horribly unplayable framerates, I can attest to a large performance gain by using wine-staging and CSMT (22fps with massive stutter on low with stable vs 50 frames on medium with staging+CSMT.) The drawback to that is it the launcher does not work under staging for me.
Battle.NET update problem (solution)
by Falko on Sunday July 31st 2016, 6:04
If you have problems starting the Battle.NET Launcher after the recent update then try the following:

- Download and activate PlayOnLinux 1.9.15
- Open "Configure Wine" and add the following overrides to the "Libraries":


- Start the Battle.NET Launcher and enter your password.*

*If you notice display issues (blank screen) after entering your password then use the Mobile Authenticator and click the invisible link on the bottom of the window and a authorisation request should appear on your smartphone which must be simply confirmed.
nouveau/pushbuf.c:727: nouveau_pushbuf_data: Assertion `kref' failed.
by Gethin Llyn on Friday July 29th 2016, 4:47
Running wine-staging, csmt ticked, overides in the first post enabled as native, then built in dbghelp disabled, got game running through scripts in 32bit and 64bit, but game freezes with this excerpt from terminal nouveau/pushbuf.c:727: nouveau_pushbuf_data: Assertion `kref' failed. Any ideas? running ubuntu 16.04 on lenovo w510 i7 1.6 ghz 8gb ram . I can't run the game with nvidia drivers, but this is a problem with the nouveau driver. Graphics card is nvidia quadro fx 880m.
July 27th workaround for Battle.Net issues
by Brian Morris on Wednesday July 27th 2016, 8:00
WoW users seem to be having more issues with the Battle.Net launcher than the users of other Blizzard applications are. As such, I chose to post this here rather than on the WineHQ page for Battle.Net.

I am up and running again, but only after setting many overrides. This is due to some of the DLLs that came with this new Battle.Net version. Here is a list of my overrides, all of which are from today, using WINE v1.8.1:

Unable to launch, reinstall fails
by Lars Norberg on Wednesday July 27th 2016, 6:23
I was unable to launch, happened all of a sudden today. When trying to reinstall it, which usually has solved this kind of bug, I'm getting the following error:

Unhandled exception: unimplemented function api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.d._get_narrow_winmain_command_line called in 32-bit code (0x7b43bfac).

The files appear to install when I'm looking at the folder content, but both running the setup and the launcher file itself causes the exact same error. Any ideas? :/

I'm also unable to run World of Warcraft directly after this started happening. It exits with the omnious #132 bug which according to Blizzard could mean anything. But for now I'm focusing on the bugs, as I believe solving these will solve the latter too.

by Wontez on Tuesday July 26th 2016, 22:45
I'm guessing I need to install from source and to be honest I suck at that.
New Connection Error
by Colin on Tuesday July 26th 2016, 20:01
I was playing today and it was working fine, but after an update I can no longer connect. When I do, I get a fatal error notice.

The error says:

wine: Call from 0x7b43d34c to unimplemented function api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll._get_narrow_winmain_command_line, aborting

I don't know what has changed, but this is a bummer. Anyone else having this issue?
low fps
by diego on Tuesday July 26th 2016, 18:19
buongiorno a tutti, mi trovo a un bivio... le mie due passioni sono wow e linux, ma purtroppo le due cose non possono convivere, o scelgo di giocare con windows, e devo lasciare al contempo linux, oppure lasciare wow. sinceramente, non ho mai usato windows a casa un po' per lavoro, e non ne ho mai sentito il bisogno.
Ma ora dover fare a meno di linux, nonostante i grandi passi fatti sul gaming recentemente mi dispiace molto, e non capisco questa linea dura della blizzard sul non fare un client per linux. Non so veramente che fare.

good morning to all, I find myself at a crossroads ... my two passions are wow and linux, but unfortunately the two can not coexist, or choose to play with windows, linux, and I have to leave at the same time, or leave wow. frankly, I have never used windows home a little 'for work, and I've never felt the need.
But now I am having to do without Linux, despite the great strides made recently on gaming I am very sorry, and do not understand this hard line of the blizzard do a client for linux. I not really know what to do.
by Evan Burkey on Sunday July 24th 2016, 14:10
I'm getting the BLZ51900007 error whenever trying to login. On Arch Linux, with wine-staging installed to latest version. Running on x86 version with -d3d9. Installed libldap. Any ideas would be appreciated
Legion requires GLSL 4.2.
by Chris Rankin on Saturday July 23rd 2016, 9:03
My problem with Legion with Mesa's radeonsi driver is that Legion needs GLSL 4.2, which in turn requires LLVM >= 3.9. However, Fedora is currently shipping with LLVM 3.8, which limits Mesa to GLSL 4.1.

Recompiling Mesa against the very latest LLVM allows the radeonsi driver to support GLSL 4.3, which enables Legion to run.
No luck with Mesa and AMD cards yet
by Chris Rankin on Saturday July 23rd 2016, 6:20
I have managed to get Legion running with Mesa and OpenGL using both Intel Broadwell and NVIDIA 920M. However, I have no success yet with AMD cards. I am suspecting that the lack of support for GLSL 4.2 may be the issue here, based on output from apitrace.
Worked Prepatch now not so much
by Marc on Friday July 22nd 2016, 17:11
Running Ubuntu 16.04, Wine 1.9.14, on a system76 High End Laptop. Before the patch everything ran amazing at highest quality. Now after the patch the ground is missing, NPC's and other players are mostly not there. I was running wine 1.9.13 before the patch and it worked like I said amazingly. I have tried removing WoW and reinstalling it, and then I upgraded to wine 1.9.14. If anyone has any ideas on what might be the problem I would love to hear them, I really don't want to dual boot my laptop!

Game is buggy on legion prepatch
by ragnarokio on Tuesday July 19th 2016, 19:52

PTR crashes
by Pavel R on Monday July 4th 2016, 2:36
I'm using Fedora 23. Legion PTR immediately crashes after start. I tried switching to different video settings: OpenGL, D3D9, D3D11 - it crashes all the same with FLT_DIVISION_BY_ZERO.

by starless on Friday June 17th 2016, 14:50
PTR Experience: The game now defaults to DX11 mode instead of DX9. The former seems to cause serious graphical glitches and occasional crashing. After changing this back (under system->advanced), I did not see a notable decrease in performance compared to live. I was not playing on ultra to begin with, though, but on medium–high settings. Running wine 1.9.12.
Legion on Haswell
by Guti on Wednesday June 15th 2016, 8:38
I'm getting CGxOGLShader errors when I try to use OpenGL renderer on Intel Haswell under Arch. I've tried with mesa from repos, mesa-git, wine, wine staging - same shit.

Any ideas?
