That could be the 0.9.16 patch ( see the old archives section of the Wow AppDB
page, although I'm by no means certain that is the patch or whether it got
applied to the wine tree ), however I think we are talking about two different
problems here that have been labelled with the same name 'flickering problem'.
The old ATI flickering problem was simply a flicker possibly with a frequency of
2hz or less that only appeared under the chat area located bottom left of the
screen, it really was fairly minor but annoying if you like things to be perfect.
the Nvidia flickering problem, is as I understand it the whole screen or things
in the distance ( please correct me if I'm wrong as I've never seem this first
My apologies for not keeping strictly to the bug in question but...
All together, as of 0.9.23 there are 4 major video issues that seem to have
appeared about the time the code got moved to winex11.drv, although there may
not be a connection.
ATI 9550 cards and presumably 8500 series and upwards....
1. A loss of text or text that appears to be torn, fixed by using the
DisabledExtentions registry entry. Here's what it looks like
2. Minimap turns white ( ATI only ? )
3. Nvidia flicker
Anyway, I'm going to try out wow with 0.9.24 standard unpatched and document
everything that's wrong, then what fixes it. ( at least with an ATI 9550 ).
