Regression: Warcraft shows blue rectangle instead of transparency

As per title.
Attached screenshot from the Mount Hyjal Cataclysm zone.
Also occurs in Firelands raid.

Rolling back to NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-270.41.19 fixes this.
Bug is present in 280 though to NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-290.03 inclusive.

Hopefully this can be fixed soon :)

I see the same blue squares in fireland.

Is there a wine bug item tracking this issue? Which World of Warcraft renderer is being used here, OpenGL or D3D?

I also have this issue with drivers 280 and above. I use the OpenGL renderer. I don't know if there is a wine bug item for this. Should one be raised?

There is currently not a wine bug because it goes away with an older driver, hence my thinking it's an nVidia issue.

It works fine with D3D rendering, this is just happening in OpenGL.
I use OpenGL as it's much faster for Warcraft and I'm a raider who needs the speed :)

EDIT: You only see the rectangle at certain angles, mainly face on if that helps any.

OK, thanks. Do you know if the issue can be seen in a more accessible zone? Ideally somewhere you can go with a trial account.

Hi, i didn't see this and created a new post on this matter, here it is: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...23&postcount=1

I'll look in the starting zones for the error so that you can see it (if you can go, in the city of tanaris you can see it)

I've flown all around eastern kingdoms and kalimdor doing the pilgrims bounty on a few toons and the bad news is that I cannot find a place other than firelands with this problem. I've not been to northrend yet, but that cannot be reached by a trial account either.

However, I have seen a lighting issue which could possibly be related in Trisifal Glades, undercity starting zone (undead).

The first picture shows black effects on and around trees in the disance. moving slighty causes them to go white, but i was unable to take a screen shot showing this. Also requires flying which is lvl60, so no trial either.

The 2nd picture shows bright white there should not be any in the distance. This can is found standing in Trisifal Glades again @ 74.56,56.94 facing west and a tiny bit south, about 8:42 on a clock face. It's small, but it's the only place I can find reachable by a trial account.

I have no idea if this is the same issue, or a regression or not.

In the dwarves's starting zone you can see this:

You need to go to the exit of Coldridge Valley and look around, you'll see trees turning black. (Coord 33,71)

I hope you can see it and fix it ;)

Thanks, that's helpful. Had anyone that's affected by this issue ever tried running it in Windows (in OpenGL mode, also)? It would be very interesting to know whether it also happens there.

I seem to remember seeing the blue square on/in/around The Dark Portal in Blasted Lands. On the other hand, I might be wrong, but it could be worth a shot.
It might be a bit hard getting there with a low level toon, though. ;-)

Confirmed!

It's hard to spot though as it basically makes the whole portal brighter. jiggling the camera and/or moving temporarily fixes it, but not long enough to take a "working" screenshot. You would need to be about lvl 55 to reach it. with some ease.

I tried to find the deadmines portal as that's low level, but couldn't find it.
