Someone an idea about the low FPS?
In windows 7 and 8 I get 60+ fps with everything maxed out @1920x1200.
But in wine I get 30-35 FPS when lucky with medium settings.
But also with almost everything on maximum settings, plus FXAA LQ and extra effects quality on low.  ???  Strange

In playonlinux everything on default except video memory. That one I've put on 2048 (GTX670).

I tried "winetricks glsl=disable", but that didn't give any difference.



I wished WG would start to support Linux more instead of android. :s

In these days the programs are coded for operation systems not for computers. Of course when you run a program that uses tons of other programs to reach the runable level on your OS, your OS will use more sources of hardware. I see that you have an actualy cool VGA but the "way" of data is more longer via wine than usage by any kind of M$ OS. The VGA is just only one couse why your fps is lower, mind that you use pulseaudio but for wine you need to use wine's ALSA libraries too. And more and more other source-hungry programs. Do not suprise when you lost fpss, rather be happy that you can run somehow in some enviroment WoT under Linux (and Free/PCBSD). Of course I would be happy too when WoT would have a Linux client.

Which frequency has 1core of ur CPU? I think thats the problem. Wot uses much ressources of it, even for graphics.

Hi, and thanks for this tutorial... It works just fine until I run the WoT autopatcher, it shows the patcher, but doesn't do anything and when I click somewhere on the patcher an error message comes up. Please help!

I have the same problem I can see the process running but it's not being displayed. I'm guessing I have something wrong with the 3d install.

The latest PlayOnLinux seems to work fine in 8.5. The results when compared to windows is underwhelming.

I updated to the latest PlayOnLinux, than I checked for the latest wine update in that program and installed it. it made a difference.
Also disabled glsl in the options. (hope I wrote it right. not on my pc atm)  fps is a bit higher now.
Gonna check again when i have dual boot again. (Windows 8 pro x64 crashed hard, had to re-install it completly. So it did overwrite my Grub. :( )

As I promised earlier, I made the how-to-run WoT under Free/PC BSD OS.
ASAP I'm gonna publish in a new topic the way. The main point: WoT is runable under FreeBSD (PCBSD).
Actually, there was no problems for me to run it under FreeBSD with nVidia GTS450. Except that the wineprefix should be located on the same logical device where the game is installed, otherwise you will not be able to auto-update game client.

I installed the dll overrides mentioned in the first post of this topic and set video memory size in registry. Additionally, I'm playing under separate X session to improve FPS and mouse movement (the mouse moves too fast in some games when I play under KDE).

However, FPS aren't good enough, just about 25-30 frames. But I have somewhat old Athlon 3800+ CPU and dying WD Green HDD, which can affect FPS too.
