Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne

It works quite nicely, but be careful however of:
  • use opengl with the -opengl switch, otherwise it may be slow.
  • be sure to have wincfg use either oss only, or, if alsa is enabled, not disabling hardware support, otherwise, the game will freeze with a black screen after the first splash screen
  • rename the movies folder, otherwise the game will hang on a black screen when trying to play into movies
  • be on a separate X server with no window manager to be able to use the ALT key More details at: Wine AppDB
  • Set the Warcraft III.exe and Frozen Throne.exe Application setting in winecfg as " Windows 98 ", otherwise the game may crash on save, destroying the save game

Current bugs (Wine 1.1.2):
  • saving in the solo campaign may crash and delete the saved game randomly. Save often, do not overwrite last file!
