HowTo / Notes

How to disable window manager's alt key combo

Window managers often have the alt key bound to certain features, especially the alt-click. THIS IS NOT A WINE BUG. If you have problems with the alt key in any way DO NOT REPORT IT. Fix your window manager. I'm not going to list steps for every one because there are too many possibilites. Figure out yourself or ask in a help forum (here is okay... but be warned all I use is TWM). If you are desperate, turn off window manager managed windows in winecfg.

KDE

Go into KDE Control Center, expand Desktop, click window behavior, then click window actions tab. You can turn off the alt-combos. If you want to make window specific settings, click on window specific settings under window behavior on the side.

GNOME

The option to change the key binding is in System Menu -> Preferences Menu -> Windows.

Skip the intro videos

Method 1: Rename the videos

After installing the game, its highly recommended that you browse to your Warcraft III folder and rename the movies folder. Many people crash from the movies because of buggy sound drivers, or simply hang, so you should do this in case you are one of them. You can still play the movies under mplayer (or xine if you so choose)! TutorialIn.mpq is the very first cinematic of the game, and for the rest; *Op.mpq is the cinematic at the start of the campaign and *Ed.mpq is the cinematic and the end. If you wanted to follow the story, it's not hard at all to play the ones corresponding where you are at.

Method 2: Mark the intro as seen

If you don't want to play the campaign, but only want to start Warcraft III without a crash while playing the intro then you can simply mark the intro as seen:

  1. Open reedit:
    $ wine regedit
  2. Navigate in regedit to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Blizzard/Warcraft III/
  3. Create a key (folder) Misc in the Warcraft III key. You can do so by right clicking the key.
  4. Create a DWORD value seenintromovie with the value 0x1
  5. ­
