World of Warcraft Classic - Goes live August 26th, 2019 - 3:00 PDT for US regions. Vanilla wow reborn, with some code improvements, but the complete look and feel of WoW Vanilla. Relive the original, and make new friends. Name reservation is open now, for up to 3 characters, horde or alliance, that were around in vanilla. No servers will allow horde and alliance on the same account, but you can put horde on one server and alliance on another. Join the classic movement.
Everything tested works.
What does not
What was not tested
Raids, as these are not available early on in the game.
Seeing as the entire engine seems to work without issues, it stands to reason that raids will as well.
I needlessly had a lot of trouble getting this to work using stock DXVK as it turned out to be a dated version (0.96).
While all other versions of WoW ran flawlessly including BFA, launching classic would throw the following error:
World of Warcraft was unable to start up 3D accelleration.
Updating to the latest version of DXVK (1.3.3 at the time of writing) solved this issue.
FYI.. My command line for this is:
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine \ DXVK_HUD=fps,info \ STAGING_SHARED_MEMORY=1 \ STAGING_WRITECOPY=1 \ DXVK_FAKE_DX10_SUPPORT=1 \ __GL_SYNC_TO_VBLANK=0 \ LD_PRELOAD="libpthread.so.0 libGL.so.1" \ WINEDEBUG=-all \ __GL_THREADED_OPTIMIZATION=1 \ wine64 /mnt/k1/Games/World\ of\ Warcraft/_classic_/Wow.exe
Not sure how much of that is pertinent and your paths will certainly vary, but sharing for completeness.
