I’ve seen that may members have install Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne with Wine on OpenSUSE 11.0 without any issues. I’ve tried to install Frozen Throne multiple times, but it seems to be crashing at the same spot on installation every time. The Reign of Chaos installs fine and minus some resolution issues, it runs great. I submitted a bug report to Wine (found here) but so far, I have gotten no definitive answer to this problem. When running the installer (see screenshot below [while the shows me running the installer as root, I have tried with a normal user, and the same problem occurs]), it stops at the “C:/Program Files/Warcraft III/War3xlocal.mpq” step. It’s pretty frustrating because I have to force quit the installer, remove the program files folder for Warcraft, and reinstall Reign of Chaos.
Running Wine 1.1.2 as that is the newest version in the Wine repository.
Sorry, didn’t say clearly enough: while the screenshot shows me running it as root, but after I was told that I should run Wine as a normal user, I tried it multiple times as a normal user. This is just the only screenshot. That aside, Thank you very much for the reply. I’ll try that as soos as possible.
I added “-opengl” to my KMENU warcraft entry and now I am able to play human campaigns. Very nice fix. And it plays faster too. At first my mouse was going NUTS all over the place. I just quit game, and restart. Ok now.
I get this error when saving my progress (during the middle of a game) Any ideas how to avoid this??
Renmaing video folder suggest - i have not yet tried.
As for the above quote, you said something funky like x86. I think you mean 64-bit? No - i run only 32 bit. And only run ext3 on all partitions, on all drives, on all computers. I don’t think the disk is the problem, because it runs fine on winxp and suse 11.0 with nvidia-blobs installed.
