    I haven't seen the problem like you described on my Xpress 200 card since I installed WOW. I found an old config.WTF that fixed most of my problems. When I get home I'll PM you the file to see if that fixes your problems.

    Still I do encounter some problems in wow with the new driver. Random graphical errors still happen, but they don't seem to make the game unplayable and are barely noticeable.

    The biggest issues I encounter from my perspective are the games slows to a crawl after playing for about an hour. I believe this to be the product of the memory leak reported by many, but this problem only showed up after installing the new version of WINE, so what's to blame for this problem is anyones guess.

    The next is the minimap turning all white while indoors or in a dungeon. This has been reported at crossover office, and many other forums. Crossover reports this to be a issue with missing pthreads in the driver, though I don't know enough about that to verify the findings.

    Finally the game will only play in OpenGL mode at 800X600 resolution and going any higher then that causes the game to be to slow to play.

    At any rate, WOW for the first time is playable on my card and after a couple of bug fixing I suspect that these issues will be resolved.

    I'll send that config file this evening for you.

    • This new release is far better than the previous one, in single-head I have like 400 More FPS with fgl_glxgears.
      BUT as long as the few glitch I have with dual-head are not resolved, I'll stick with the 8.40 release of the driver.

      The most annoying one is the very slow motion of the scroll bar in the secondary screen. I can almost follow line per line the change as it happen...

      The other bug wich show there is a "bug", when I launch fgl_glxgears on the secondary screen the windows open in the secondary screen, but the content of the window is showing in the primary screen.

          • Is it a problem with xorg-1.4? With my xorg-1.3 it is working (slow, of course).

                Nevertheless I did not check xorg.0.log to see if there are any warnings tho.

                I noticed I'm not the only one having the WoW bug with 8.42 and 7.11 drivers, but I guess this will be fixed with next release (hope so ^^)

                Anyway, I'll installed and configure compiz tonight to see if all the options you told me about are needed or not
                umm what is your Wow bug?

                  It works for me, and quite fast aswell. (Xpress 1100/200M) Compiz Fusion won't work, however KWin4 with compositing works brilliantly.

                    Hello,

                    the WoW bug I encounter is the "No Models" one reported on the wine appdb page : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=9429

                    SET M2UseShaders "0" did not help at all.

                    • Instrutions taken from http://www.wowwiki.com/Linux/Wine



                      Registry Tweak for FPS Boost

                      Open a terminal window, (konsole/terminal/x terminal etc..), type regedit and press enter. This will start the Wine equivalent of the windows registry editor. If you are familiar with using the registry editor under windows then this is pretty much the same.

                      1. Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\
                      2. Highlight the wine folder in the left hand pane by left clicking on it. The icon should change to an open folder.
                      3. Click right on the wine folder and select [NEW] then [KEY].
                      4. Replace the text "New Key #1" with OpenGL (CaSe Sensitive).
                      5. Right click in the right hand pane and select [NEW] then [String Value].
                      6. Replace "New Value #1" with "DisabledExtensions" (CaSe sensitive).
                      7. Then double click anywhere on the line, a dialog box will open.
                      8. In the value field type "GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object" (without the quotes).

                      Note: If you are unable to rename the newly created key "New Key #1" to "OpenGL" then expand the left hand pane of the regedit window using the vertical divider bar. You should now be able to change it. A known bug in Wine is causing this unwanted behavior.

                      You should see a significant performance gain.
                      But you want to also add the gl arb vertex program,since you have a Amd/Ati card

                      so the last bit should be

                      GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object;GL_ARB_vertex_program

                      Should look like this in the registry

                        Unfortunaly I already modified the registry :-( so that's not where my problem comes from.

                        Thx anyway

                          Which distro are you using?
                          Any particular xorg.conf options?
                          I'm really confused.
