Playing World Of Warcraft with Ubuntu
This week I had the chance to play World Of Warcraft (wow) Mist of Pandarian, I have played it before but the performance was not the best or I had to do a lot of things to get a good configuration and performance.
So when the new expansion arrived, I was prepared to work a lot for trying to configure wine, winetricks, config.wtf (file of wow) and even more… but my big surprise when I only have to change the video support to OpenGL and a small configuration in Wine and thats all!!!
If you have the game in your computer, just move the game folder to your Ubuntu partition (/home/YourUser/wow). Once here you have to edit the file called “Config.wtf”, adding the line:
SET gxApi “opengl”
About Wine the only tip that I can share is: change the configuration to work emulating win7… and thats all! now you are ready to play without any problem! by the way: I have better performance than using win7 as operative system. 😀
