I have direct rendering enabled on my ati radeon 4200 I have changed all of my registry and game settings to make it work correctly and well. BUT WoW still wont run past 8 fps. I honestly have no other ideas Ive searched all over google and tried everything. Ive heard wow usually runs better on wine then on windows and i was getting 30-50 fps on windows so I would imagine id at least be able to get 20-60 on wine. Im also running ubuntu 12.04 64bit and have installed all drivers and latest catalyst update.

  • Did you setup it using winetricks? – dlin Jul 9 '12 at 17:46
  • can you link to a tut? all i did to play was copy from my windows partion to my external ssd and then copied back to wines folder – tylerjholmgren Jul 9 '12 at 18:38

  • Ive had this same issue when i I had ATI. What is your card model? – TardisGuy Jul 9 '12 at 18:34
  • i have the ati radeon 4200 – tylerjholmgren Jul 9 '12 at 18:39
  • Hit your Catalyst panel. OpenGL settings, Kill AA to 1x, Kill sync to Vblank -> Save and close. update driver. That GX api trick should have done it. In fact... theres nothing more that can be done if youve already dont the wineHQ tricks – TardisGuy Jul 9 '12 at 19:20
  • Whoah wait a tick. Is that the 4200 Onboard? – TardisGuy Jul 9 '12 at 22:10
