I'm not sure if it's because the patch, since the patch notes contain "Resolved a Mac issue related to CPU usage." but I was able to remove the two lines I added to the Config.wtf file and the game's graphics are the same as they were pre-5.0 patch, with no flickering triangles in place of the ground textures.
Whether it was intentional fix or an unintended side effect of another change, looks like Blizzard fixed it for us.

So is anyone able to play in MoP with this fix? It made WoW much better but I get dc'ed about every 30 min. I was hoping I could still play in Mop until I can get a new computer.
Thanks for any info.

A special thanks to Blizz, for forcing me and many others out of WoW with no warning or making it worth not playing at all due to the issues.

if you go to your WoW/WTF/Config.wtf and add this two single lines:

SET fixedfunction "1"
SET ffx "0"

From another Wonderful player who saved my day. Things change a little bit but it certainly offers a temporary fix.


Do we know if this works for PC's as well? My husband's machine is having the same tear issue that looks like this :http://i.imgur.com/NfOY2.png? Gruthgos's 85 (Tauren Druid Bathory) screen capture there, not ours.

You'll need to post a DxDiag and description of the issue to the Windows Tech Support forums :

Not totally sure if that's overheating , bad windows drivers or bad textures.

Here's some info on how to run a DxDiag :

Whoever came up with this just saved Blizzard a couple more subscriptions! It worked perfectly!

Update :
The added code works like a charm, the only thing that I still had was a screen flicker. I checked out a few sites, well countless sites and this is what I figured out.

Step 1 : delete your cache in your WoW folder, make sure it's emptied..(not sure if it matters but I always do anyway)

Step 2 : run the wow launcher, and in the menu bar at the top go to options and change your game settings to windowed fullscreen, and 32 bit client.

Step 3 : WoW will load up, now this is the breaking point i've noticed. Go to the system options or w.e at the login screen if the flickering hasn't stopped and check Vertical Sync, (make sure it's enabled) once I did this last step the flickering stopped.

I've tried doing the Vertical Sync alone and got nothing so maybe it's this whole process, maybe it's not but this is how I properly fixed my WoW minus the white background. If someone knows a way to fix the white background and not just the terrain please let me know.

I don't blame blizzard, but I do wish they would recognize we found a way to make this work with simple code and work off of that.

I hope I have helped someone a little more.

Julibro, what have you tried so far? Can you create a new thread, and post some system info?

I'm locking this thread because it is from last year.
