@Qblolz

We'd probably need more information to be able to help you (unless there are any WOW players around with a similar issue)...

Are you sure that holding more keys improves performance?
That would be unusual to say the least! :lol:
  • What version of Wine / Wine Staging are you using?
  • Are you using dxvk (alternate DirectX11 renderer)?
  • Are you using vkd3d (DirectX12 render path)?
  • Are you using wine-esync (integrated in Wine Staging ≥4.6))?
You'd probably also want to take a look at: Ta

WoTLK Client hu, I noticed Wine-4.x versions have some slowdowns you might want to try say Wine-Staging-3.21. I noticed I get better performance over all using Wine-3.21 the. Wine-4.x in most cases.

At least current wine versions handle DirectX9 I remember when that WoTLK was live I was forced to play using OpenGL but it ran great even when raiding ICC25 zoomed all the way out :D

So you'd presumably get much better performance using either gallium 9 or dxvk then...

Look for bartender or some other UI addon that replaces the stock Blizzard bars.

I tested out my Suggest of downgrading the used wine version to Wine-Staging-3.21, I no longer have the random lockups/slowdowns and my mouse is working good again where before it would slowdown I can’t have that when tanking/healing.

Stock UI with Carbonote and baggon as the only addons that we’re for both tests on two different WoLTK servers using 3.3.5a clients.

I tried all variants:
wine version - 3.21 staging / 3.20 / latest
with addons / without addons / with only 1 addon - bartender
And still have issue that too many spells on panel decrease fps
p.s.
I run WoW with logs and find this:

Code: Select all

failed to open C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Data/Interface/Icons
failed to open C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Interface/Icons
mb this is problem ?

I checked and I also get the same thing but the game runs just fine on two different servers each with there provided clients (one stock one wod models)

I was leveling in Northend without game slowdowns bar lag at peak times.
I'm running on a mid 2014 13inch MacBook Pro, so I'm running of an Intel Iris integrated GPU.


Maybe something else is causing these slowdowns?

I think its problem with gpu drivers - soon I will change gpu to rtx 2060 or 1070 and will update thread.
