Sapience posted this weekend that a few issues with the client have been identified and the tech is working on getting them fixed:
Thanks for all of the reports and for some of the tips and suggestions you’ve given in other threads.
From the looks of things there are a number of reasons for the crashing issues. Some of them fixable by making changes to your machine like new drivers, uninstalling Happy Cloud (once LOTRO is installed you don’t need it any more).
However, we have identified a couple of issues we can address through the game client itself. The team is working this weekend on these fixes and hope to have a confirmed, tested, and fully validated set of fixes for this issue ready to go early next week.
Thought I should let you know this. And let’s hope they’ve really found the issues. Perhaps I can even start using a bit higher settings then the very lowest. Cause before the Hotfix of the 17th I could indeed use higher settings and enjoy the graphics of the game better.
Have fun everyone!
