> Hi,
> I've tested wine 1.0rc5 today with fully up-to-date Debian testing and latest NVIDIA Driver and Guld Wars and here my report :
> -Incredibly slow (run over-smoothly on the same system with windows XP)
> -Absolutlly no shaders displayed (char over-bright, horrible effects, ect...)
> -Texture problem in loggin screen (i can see "junction" of texture in the background)
> I've tested many wine configurations (shaders, OffScreenrenderer, ect...) and the output if always the same, sometimes even more dirty...
> I've tested other games (c&c3, quake 4-linux native binary, NWN-Linux native binary, some reflexive arcade games) and they run fine.
> That's all, if someone expect the same problems, post here :)

Did you write to ArenaNet and tell them that you want Guild Wars for
Linux? Here is their contact page:

Let them know that you use Linux and that you would like to play their
game. If we start writing to the software houses, then they will
realize that there is a market for their products under Linux.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
