This is an article about optimizations for World of Warcraft for the WINE environment for Linux.

WereHamster's WINE branch Edit

git://88.198.20.210/git/wine.git

Has a branch 'World.of.Warcraft' that contains some WoW-specific patches, such as an improved dsound/alsa driver. It uses the alsa driver, so you have to have alsa installed and configured.

To use this branch, you don't need to be root nor do you need to install anything!

Get the source and compile it:

$ git-clone git://88.198.20.210/git/wine.git wine-wow
$ cd wine-wow
$ ./configure
$ make depend && make

Make a new wine prefix:

$ WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine-wow" ./tools/wineprefixcreate

Now you can start WoW:

$ WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.wine-wow" ./wine /path/to/WoW.exe


Patches on top of vanilla-WINE Edit

  • make DirectSound use alsa hardware buffers
  • disable GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object
  • allow multisampling
