Legion Patch changes

I installed the Legion patch that was released today and immediately the cutscene was all black or all green. Initial troubleshooting confirmed my suspicion, the 'install' took it upon itself to update your gxAPI setting - most everything else seemed untouch. So edit your and change the gxAPI setting back to what you had previously. For me it was "D3D9".

Yep.. that's what happened to me as well.. it changed it to D3D11... reverting it back to D3D9 got it to work.

I have the black screen I opened the but I can't find the gxAPI  I have gxWindow "1" and gxMaximize "0".  I serched the file and those are the only two entries with gx.  So what can I do to fix the issue?

Thank you for the tip above... Initially, gxAPI did not exist but when I closed out the launcher and reopened the file it appeared at the bottom of the file. Once I changed the value it fixed the issue.

Nice find.  Fixed things for me as well.

Thanks for the info.

Great catch.  Little tweak worked like a charm.

Hi All,

I had a green screen during the cinematic and then a black screen.

I tested the manipulation you spoke about, without results.

I've contacted support and they answered back :

"You can fix this by adding a .dll override using the Wine Configuration control panel
_deps . Go to the Libraries tab and add an entry for d3d11 and edit it so that is set to disabled and you should now be able to run WoW"

If it may be helpful for anyone ;)

Thanks Thomas Raulet, that worked like a champ and was the only change I made.

FYI Thomas, not sure if you can update your post, the hyperlink needed some tweaking as it looks like it broke in the paragraph where _deps is.
