Doesn't fix the problem....

I disabled Stencil shadows and turned on AA and got the dreaded freeze up/black screen/driver not responding....

Bummer... Well here's hoping we see a new ATI driver soon or that Mines of Moria patching fixes it!!

There's nothing more annoying than getting the Hope buff for rog and losing it because you crashed.

On that note ITS EVEN SADDER WHEN YOU LOSE INTERNET WHEN THE ROG IS DOWN TO 100 MORALE AND THE ONLY PERSON THAT WANTED THE WEAPON GEM WAS YOU!

/sigh :'(

Ok, so I loaded on the Farcry 2 hotfix driver, re-enabled 8xAA and played for 2 hours last night without crashing on DX10 with PPE on and Stencil Shadows on. I didn't hit Bree or Prancing Pony last night but it was SO nice to have AA for those 2 hours.

I'll play 4+ hours tonight for sure so I'll know if this is truly fixed but if it is, I will be SO happy....

LOTRO is not mentioned on the hotfix notes, but you never know... however I have the feeling that it will stay broken, don't ask me why

Default Re: LotRO DX10 Client = BOING!!1!11!!

I played for about 4 hours last night in Lonelands with NO problem, then I went to Bree, went to the Vault and Wammo, black screen with mouse cursor and ATIdmag whatever driver error...

Bummer, AA is back off now...

Switched back to dx10 last night with 178.24 drivers. No crashes for a solid 5 hours. (180.43 has serious issues with the dynamic shadows enabled)

SWEET looking armor dude! I'm playing a hunter too and having a blast.

One thing I hate about this game is that you have to reinstall and slug through the patching if you blow away your OS (like I do frequently). With WOW I was able to just keep a WOW directory on my D-drive and go right back to just clicking on the EXE to play after a reinstall.

Age of Conan seems to allow this but with the caveat that you need to reinstall DirectX9c first on Vista (no big deal). LOTRO on the other hand seems to be totally busted up after an OS reinstall. I did manage to find a link to download the complete install for the game patched up to Book 14 and that is helpful for the future. Hopefully they'll have another install set like this after Moria comes out...

there are some .net updates and also i think you need to run the game as admin for some reason it will block it from running without asking.

Check out forums.lotro.com, there are some folks saying the new FC2/BIA hotfix ATI drivers fix the AA in lotro! (search for 4870 in lotro forums).

Can't wait to try that out tonight, if so I'll be very happy!!

Default Re: LotRO DX10 Client = BOING!!1!11!!

Well the new FC2/BIA hotfix drivers seem to have fixed the AA issue with DX10 in LOTRO!!

I zoned all over the place with AA on , DX 10 on, PPE on, Stencil Shadows on and NO lockups at all, even all inside Bree (Prancing Pony, etc).

Graphics look amazing with AA on. I'm sticking with this driver and will continue with AA on to see if I can get several hours of straight play in with no lockups...
