Ok, I´m trying to play Warcraft II Combat Edition in Linux via wine. This is a strategy game that is only 11 MB big and it was released first at 97
Movement is sluggish, innaccurate, retarded, and overall unplayable. While playing, the more units are built in the game, the game starts getting worse speed-wise.
I am using latest opensuse, 11 and i just upgraded kernel, (dont remember the exact number version)
I have installed Nvidia Drivers 182.50
And wine version 1.1 via yast.
CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2400
Memory: 768 MB DDR1 RAM
GPU: AGP 8x Nvidia 6800 256mb BFG OC
Sound: MB Integrated Nvidia nforce audio.
Mobo: Abit Nf7 v2.0
I´m trying to migrate from windows to linux, but i play this game a lot. So I´ve been looking for this to work.
First linux distro I tried was ubuntu, i had the same problem there, sluggish movement etc…, never fixed it.
Tried installing all sorts of wine versions, 0.9, 1, 1.7beta etc… none worked.
Then i ran slackware based distro live cd (backtrack3), the game ran perfectly smooth, just like in windows, off a live CD!!!, i didn´t even installed anything, not a graphic driver etc., I figured I would try the same wine version that worked at slackware, but in ubuntu… no, that didnt fix anything, i had same problem back at ubuntu, so i deleted that linux and installed opensuse.
I am having same problem.
I tried disabling desktop effects before running the game but movement is still choppy.
