Installing WoW 1.12.1 with playonlinux
234 4 Aug
Dear Linuxusers,

I'm using wine-6.14 (Staging).
With playonlinux, i created a 64-Bit virtual-drive for world of warcraft
and installed d3dx9. When i try to start it from the
/home/linuxlite/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WoW/drive_c/Program Files
(x86)/434 Run&Play/WoW.exe, the game does not start and i get the
following error from playonlinux diagnostics:

Running wine- WoW.exe (Working directory :
/home/linuxlite/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WoW/drive_c/Program Files
(x86)/434 Run&Play)
X Error of failed request: GLXBadFBConfig
Major opcode of failed request: 153 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 0 ()
Serial number of failed request: 256
Current serial number in output stream: 256

The terminals brings:

[POL_System_CheckFS] Message: Checking filesystem for WoW.exe
[POL_Wine] Message: Running wine- WoW.exe (Working directory : /home/linuxlite/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/WoW/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/434 Run&Play)

Minor opcode of failed request: 0 ()

[POL_Wine] Message: Wine return: 0


What can i do to get it to work?



Thank you very much.

I would seriously suggest going with Lutris instead of playonlinux, it's far more up to date and just works better.

I want to try it without the big platforms.
Now i tried:


MESA_GL_VERSION_OVERRIDE=4.5

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_SOFTWARE=1

Now i am able to start and play, but the game stutters.



Terminal:

0100:fixme:d3d:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for card vendor 0000 (using GL_RENDERER "llvmpipe (LLVM 12.0.0, 128 bits)").
0100:fixme:d3d:wined3d_guess_card No card selector available for card vendor 0000 (using GL_RENDERER "llvmpipe (LLVM 12.0.0, 128 bits)").
011c:fixme:d3d:state_linepattern_w Setting line patterns is not supported in OpenGL core contexts.

Thank you very much
