Two causes for this error meassge either you are not running the latest version of World of Warcraft, or your game files have been modified.

It is possible that you have a virus or program which is modifying files on your computer. Scan your computer with an updated anti virus program to make sure that your machine is clean. Then make sure you are launching the game using Launcher.exe
If none of the above helps they are a few repairing tools that might fix your game, you might want to check "Fix Wareout".

Good luck.

Error #134 fatal condition world maps among others happens all the time


Go to the World of Warcraft folder.
Delete the Interface, WDB, and WTF folders.
Restart WoW.
This WILL erase all your settings and addons.

If you prefer not to erase all your settings and addons:
Rename the Interface, WDB, and WTF folders.
Restart WoW.

What this does is resets your game to the original install and will remove any potential corrupted files causing the error messages.

Hope this helps!

Upon startup of game get this error message- "unable to initialize video mode: could not set screen mode."


try download n install latest driver..

Here is something you can try for now:
Many games provide an option to be started in "window"-mode instead of fullscreen.
Open a terminal, cd to the directory where the game is installed and start it from there, but append "--help" behind the command name (or "-h" if that didn't work)! Keep an eye open for an option that looks as if it starts the game in window-mode.
