LotRO DX10 Client = BOING!!1!11!!
 
I've been away from PC gaming for almost a year and I'm waaaay behind, but before I stopped last year I had played some LotRO and really enjoyed, thought it was a great looking games. So last weekend when they offered the $9.99/month thing I decided to jump back in and I'm glad I did, wow, that Direct X 10 client is beautiful. And performs great.

I didn't take any, I was too busy playing, but I will grab some next time I play. Yes, this thread is worthless without pics, sorry.

Last time I tried it in DX10 mode it was not very stable, and it had some missing texture problems at certain instances (indoor scenes, caves). Performance was improved from the first version but it still was not usable for long gameplay sessions (4+ hours), I ended up reverting to DX9.

Maybe it's time to try it again

Yea, I played for 3 hours yesterday and only came across one texture glitch and it was during when the camera was re-centering when I was backed into a corner. I covered several zones and went from Ost Guruth to Bree, back and to the North Downs and it was very smooth and stable.

I tried the DX10 feature on LOTRO a few months back. With my rig, it was chugging pretty bad that I had to turn it off.

So is it verifiable that it works now? I'm interested in trying the game out again if it is. I just don't feel like plunking down 10 bucks to give it a shot for a month until I know.

with the 175.12 drivers dx10 works great. Performance has come along way for lotro and dx10 since the first implementation.

When I see some of the DX10 screenshots I regret not installing Vista last week instead of XP.
