    Always downloading screens...

    I just reinstalled LOTRO after my hard disk died. All works fine, except everytime I start up the launcher, it reloads all the splash screens. I get to the stage where it says:

    Installing Prerequisite Software

    And then under that, it says, in succession:

    Downloading "EN LOTRO Splash Screen"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 1"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 2"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 3"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 4"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 5"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 6"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 7"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 8"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 9"
    Downloading "EN Loading Screen 10"
    Downloading "DE LOTRO Splash Screen"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 1"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 2"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 3"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 4"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 5"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 6"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 7"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 8"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 9"
    Downloading "DE Loading Screen 10"
    Downloading "FR LOTRO Splash Screen"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 1"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 2"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 3"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 4"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 5"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 6"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 7"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 8"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 9"
    Downloading "FR Loading Screen 10"

    After that it continues loading as normal, and then the game goes on and plays fine.

    It does all this EVERY time. Even if I run the launcher then close it without entering the game, then run it again, it does it again.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Go to your game directory and click the TurbineRegisterGDF.exe

    This should make sure everything is registered ok within windows and for me stops this issue. Do a google search if it persists because I did see other more complicated methods when I was looking.

    Check you pc's short date format, the Lotro client is expecting it to be Month/Day/Year so if its not, the sees it as out of date and will keep updating it each and every time.

    Startbar/Control panel/Region and Language - click it

    In formats tab change it to English USA, then update the game and then change it back to what ever you had.

    I have had no end of problems with this - before I put in a new hard disk, LotRO would download and reinstall the C libraries every time. I cannot believe that the fix was a simple as this.

    Thank you, 0Pinger. Thank you a lot
