Problems installing World of Warcraft via Lutris


#1

Hi everybody, trying to install World of Warcraft on Linux Mint. I am getting different errors while logging in, mainly the “streaming error”. Below is my error log, which, I think, tells everything, but even after googeling for about a day I don’t get it. I am a Linux beginner. Anybody knows what the log tells me?

Thanks a lot!

Nevermind, I found it. I set my DXVK version to 0.80 and now it works.


#4

Changing the DXVK version led to one successful login. Now I have again only ‘streaming error’ disconnects during loading etc.
Can anybody help me there?


#5

Have you tried to set DXVK to the latest version? I don’t know if this will help you, I don’t play World of Warcraft. The latest version of DXVK is 1.0, I believe.


#6

You need a wow cache from an existing wow installation on Windows. There are some rolling around on GitHub, but I think the latest one was from October, and the game’s been patched several times since.

I keep WoW installed on an old laptop that can barely run it for this purpose. If there’s a new patch, I run it, log into a character, move around for a couple minutes, log off, and copy my cache folder over to my wine installation.

More helpful info on the Lutris GitHub wiki: https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Game:-World-of-Warcraft

I crashed my Linux trying to solve this and run the game in windows now.

Thanks for your tips!
