i would like to play GW2. Unfortunately, as soon as i hit run my computer freezes.
I went to Configure -> Wine -> Configure Wine -> Graphics
and activated virtual desktop and set my desired resolution.
I strongly recommend "window mode" (simply set a resolution lower than your current host system's res.)
My system specs/ settings used:
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Intel i7 3537U
nVidia GeForce GT 750M
8GB DDR3 RAM
PoL 4.4.2/ PoL 4.4.5
GLSL disabled, video memory: 4096(mb)
I tried the following other versions of Wine:
1.5.12 (runs, but bad performance ~15fps) 1.5.28 (freeze)
I also added the following registry keys:
../Direct3D/DirectDrawRenderer = opengl
../Direct3D/VideoMemorySize = 4096
Thanks in advance for any help
