[Tutorial] How to run Turtle WoW on ChromeOS

Post by Kyzen » Sat Jun 11, 2022 10:41 am

Hi everyone smiling_turtle , in this tutorial/guide I'll show you how I get Turtle WoW up in running on ChromeOS.

For this guide, you'll need an x86 machine (Intel or AMD). I'm curious if there is a way to run it on ARM processors, but I can't test it.

First step, you need to enable "Linux development environment" on the advanced setting of chromeOS.

Allocate enough storage, I would say at least 20gb to be comfortable.

Then you need to open your Chrome browser and go to chrome://flags. Search for "GPU Support" and enable it.

When it's done, you'll need to install wine this is the program that will let you run Windows program under Linux.
Do not install it from Google repository. (if you do so, you'll have no sound).

Open the Linux terminal, make sure everything is updated :

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
go on : https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian
and follow the step :

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo mv winehq.key /usr/share/keyrings/winehq-archive.key

wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/debian/dists/buster/winehq-buster.sources
sudo mv winehq-buster.sources /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

sudo apt update

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
Your Linux environment should be good to go.

The next step is to download Turtle WoW and put it inside the section called "Linux Files" in the file explorer.
Assuming the folder name is "TurtleWow" go inside the directory from the terminal.

Code: Select all

cd TurtleWoW
and launch the game :

Code: Select all

wine wow.exe
It should run fine. Most likely the cursor in blinking or almost invisible, do not panic, just go inside wow setting and disable hardware cursor.

You should be fine :p



Next step will be to make a cool shortcut for a better user experience, I'll try to update this guide happy_turtle_head
