I receive a message that say there are a problem with opengl and few momments after game always crashes.
I suspect that my problem is my graphic card very old - ATI 9250 , I dont have intention to buy other graphic card , are expensive and in linux always have very poor support for graphic cards.
I know this GPU, which many years ago was my first GPU to run wz. I'm not sure it is enough to run 3.1 even with good drivers (though trying to run with shaders disabled in the config may be a good idea; also note that 9250, by specification, does support OpenGL 1.4, which is enough to run 3.1 with shaders).
But there's something i'd like to point out: your GPU is already unsupported, it cannot get much worse. Open-source ATI drivers, as far as i remember, were not very efficient on this GPU. If you say that wz doesn't even start, it means that it hasn't got much better since then. And official ATI linux drivers are very quickly dropping support for old hardware. The game used to be running much better under fglrx, but since the support was dropped, you could no longer install the relevant version of fglrx on top of a newer kernel and X.org (not sure if it's possible find drivers for it under some windows8 either lol).
Finally, it's still a good idea to use 2.3.9 rather than 2.3.8. No, it won't give x-player maps support; also note that even if you backport the support for x-player maps, many of these maps already use the new features of the terrain renderer, or new game objects, and therefore will look like crap or even crash.
