Hey guys,


Normally, I use the POL GUI to start World of Warcraft. I do this in the following way:

Open POL GUI -> Configure -> Miscellaneous (tab) -> "Run a .exe in this virtual drive" -> (select executable in file prompt)


To make things go faster, I tried to make this script:

[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"
POL_Wine_SelectPrefix "HS"
POL_Wine start /unix "Ancillary/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe"


However, the script only works when I use the GUI to run it, by doing Tools (menu) -> "Run Local Script"

Any help would be much appreciated! Just to be clear, my main goal is to use POL to manage my wine versions and play WoW without installing it to a new prefix.

To clarify again, nothing happens when I try to run this script like a normal .sh in the following manner:

chmod +x

Why don't you just install WoW normally? Why do you need to launch it like that every time?
