I installed diablo3 using POL and after few tweaks i can log in the game. Problem is that fps bounce from 5 to 30 and the game is unplayble.
CPU AMD Phenon II X3 mobile
ATI Radeon HD 5650
Ubuntu 12.04 (GNOME3 classic)
I have tried to limit the diablo process to one cpu core inserting taskset -cp 0 in the beginning of the shortcut but nothing changed.
Can you suggest some other possibility to solve my problem pleas?
Mobile chipsets = :-/ The problem is that the real card requires WAY more power than your average laptop can supply. The 5650 pulls only about 20 watts max, whereas my desktop HD 5670s are each pulling about 60 watts. More power consumption = more circuitry (and more heat loss, granted) = more computing.
I usually tell people if they want to play serious games on high settings to just use a desktop LOL
So, umm. This just worked for me, and let me login. Vaux nailed it. It does, in fact, appear to be a memory limit issue. This used to be a problem with WoW, as seen here: http://www.limitlessfx.com/wine-world-of-warcraft-crash-4gb.html
setarch i386 -3 -L -B -R wine ~/path/to/Diablo\ III.exe
I don't have my bugzilla credentials ATM - somebody please post this to issue 30849 if they can confirm that this works.
make sure that you have your video memory size registry key for wine so that it knows how much video memory it has to use. I have had all kinds of problems with games recognizing my video card as being up to par until i set that key.
i play on a laptop:
nvidia quattro 880M 1G
1920x1080 max settings no graphic lag with reg key.
No luck here, unfortunately. Running Kubuntu 12.04 x64 and I can't get past "Authenticating Credentials". It eventually times out and I'm disconnected from the server. I'm using PlayOnLinux and have Wine version 1.5.5-DiabloIII_v3 installed and attached to my Diablo III virtual drive.
Any ideas? I'd love to be able to get my Diablo III fix without having to reboot to Windows.
