    Exclamation [SOLUTION] Stuck at 'An update error occured' 50...retry loop, on Launcher

    Having developed this issue myself last Friday after no problems playing since release, I have spent the weekend trying to troubleshoot the problem and now believe I have finally identified at least a workaround, if not a definitive cause (probably only Turbine can do this). This has been confirmed now as working for others with similar issues (including being stuck at an earlier stage)

    Issue: During the launch process of the Mac client LotroLauncher.app (in the Finder named The Lord of the Rings Online™), after connecting to the patch server and Check product stage; instead of progressing to the Login/Password stage the launcher shows the error message;

    An update error occured
    [sic]

    And just repeats a Retry every 60 seconds will no progress. Relaunching will only repeat the loop.

    Workaround: Rename the application from The Lord of the Rings Online™ to The Lord of the Rings Online by removing the '™'. Relaunch the application and it should now progress to Login/Password and allow you to enter the game.

    NOTE: Some players have found that this does not work but doing the same for the lotroclient within the app via Right Click > Show Package Contents does work. The path is;

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online.app/Contents/Resources/lotroclient.app
    Note that in the Finder you will see The Lord of the Rings Online™ as the name, not lotroclient.

    NOTE: This solution was posted for the original direct download from Turbine. It may not work on the Steam download now also available.

    Image: This is the error message on the launcher window;



    Note: This workaround has been confirm to work on this and similar issues during patching and checking before the login/pass stage. There are other options to resolve this issue which are;

    Optional Workarounds

    Launch the LotroLauncher.app directly

    1. Navigate to /Applications > The Lord of the Rings Online™ then right click the app and select Show Package Contents.

    2. Navigate to Contents >MacOS >LotroLauncher (LotroLauncher.app if extensions are shown) and double click to launch directly. This will automatically open Terminal and run the launch sequence. This should result in you reaching the Login/Password stage ready to enter the game.

    You do not have to alter the app name to do this (although that is the neater solution). It is also possible to drag this to the Dock (right or lower part) to make a shortcut.

    Reinstall the Application

    Initially I resolved this after a lot of checks by removing the following (I moved them to a new folder on the desktop);

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online™.app
    (normally this is /Applications/LotroLauncher.app but shows as this with a problem install)

    and all the supporting/related files;

    ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient
    ~/Library/Caches/com.turbine.lotroclient
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.turbine.lotroclient.plist
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.turbine.LotroLauncher.plis t
    ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.turbine.lotroclient.savedS tate
    ~/Library/Saved Application State/com.turbine.LotroLauncher.save dState
    Then mounting the LotroLauncher.dmg disk image again; Letting the Verify complete (takes a while but important) and copy to Applications by dragging it to the folder on the disk image window (takes a while as a large file).

    Launch the fresh install and let it patch. This time it worked without the error. Just make sure that all the files noted are removed.

    Details:
    This issue is caused because LotroLauncher.app (viewed as The Lord of the Rings Online™ in Applications) is unable to check and confirm correctly the installed files with the Turbine patch server.

    Initially it appears a classic connection issue, but it is not. After doing a lot of troubleshooting tests (Mac maintenance/ troubleshooting checks, firewall/router/traceroute/port/dns checks and then file permissions. Even an incremental removal and swap of all enclosed files/folders did not seem to identify the problem.

    Booting into Bootcamp and connecting first time with the PC LOTRO client confirmed it was not a connection issue. And, having checked all folder/files individually, I noticed the path name was different after doing a fresh install rectified the problem and allowed me to compare the working and non-working apps. BY being able to replace the entire Contents folder and still having the issue, it left only the enclosing package and why I then tried removing the 'tm' which worked.

    That the client was able to connect correctly to the Turbine patch server was confirmed by running a Traceroute;

    Applications/Utilities/Network Utility.app > Traceroute & patch.lotro.com

    A fresh install from the LotroLauncher.dmg disk image will show the path to the LOTRO app as;

    Applications/LotroLauncher.app
    It appears something is changed at some point, also even after being able to patch, login and play the game for sometime, where it then shows as;

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online™
    Another symptom appears to be the generation of new empty folder in the app;

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online™.app/Contents/MacOS/<Error: Cannot convert wide char to multi-byte: char 0x00002122 index 42>
    There can be multiple copies of this folder with incremental index xx numbers

    I suspect it is the 'tm' character causing this issue which is related to do with converting wide character to multibyte error as shown in the folder name error.

    This error refers to char 0x00002122 which just happens to be Unicode Character 'TRADE MARK SIGN' (U+2122)

    This error is preventing the patch check process from completing properly, perhaps from the incorrect path name. You can see this happening in the

    ~/Library/Logs/com.turbine.lotroclient/PatchClient.log
    In the first of the two records copied here you can note the name of the app has the 'tm' and end in the error which just repeats. The second does not and connects and completes correctly.

    A clean install will be the same as the second and work correctly but have the correct file path and name;

    000000002.801: application directory: </Applications/LotroLauncher.app/Contents>
    I am not sure what could cause the name to be changed on the path if it is not changed manually except that Turbine use a different display name on the app from that of the bundle name and it appears that it generates a new folder with the error message at around the same time.

    When I first installed the beta Mac client The Lord of the Rings Online™ I wondered then, why they had added a trade mark character to the name as it does not appear on the PC client folder? Even then it seemed a recipe for trouble as special characters can break things.

    Perhaps the fix is as simple as for them to remove it. Or whether there is a deeper issue in why it is changing the name from LotroLauncher.app to the display name on the path. At least now it is identified and the bug report/s should help them fix it soon, as it is catching a lot players out who are wanting to try the beta Mac client.

    As a last note, I find it ironic that even the error message has an error

    'An update error occured' should read 'An update error occurred'

    Conclusion:

    I would recommend that if you get this issue, you follow the third option above and do a fresh install of the app. In this way the correct path will show. Just ensure to remove all support files which are identified there. Keep the ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient folder so you can add this back after to retain your lotro.keymap, Plugins and any screenshots etc., as there doesn't appear to be anything in there which will cause this.

    If the issue re-occurs you can follow the steps again above to rectify it and we can hope Turbine issue a fix soon.

    Finally, do report this issue (and any others you find) via Submit A Bug Report

    Make sure to select Mac as the operating system and give as much detail as possible, including system setup (ou can get details by clicking the Apple symbol top left of screen > About This Mac > More info and copy/paste details); OS X version; description of bug and detail including /loc location. Also attach a screenshot or system report (found at More info…, see above) if relevant. Then Turbine are aware of the issue and can help fix it.

    Hopefully this helps resolve this frustrating bug for others also. Please post if it works (or not) for you. Any +Rep is appreciated!

    Added details also now. If you have this issue or any other during the launcher patching/checking process before login/pass (maybe even for that stage) try the suggested workarounds. If you still have issues post here.

    This was an actual Turbine response early in Beta 1 (i.e. remove the tm).

    I don't recall the context but looking at my Beta Client install... yeah, I took the "tm" off the patcher name!

    I suspect it has to do with the difference in file names and wrapper names.
    When you look at the file name from the Terminal Window, it is different from the name shown to the Finder.

    Sigh... Apple tellsl me I can pick up my "recalled" iMac with it's new disk installed -- Tomorrow! yeah!!!
    A week for what should have been about a 2 hour disk replacement!
    Argh...!

    They could have posted some of these known workarounds right off the closed Beta forums saving me 20+ hours of research and others hours of frustration

    /rant
    Seriously, the client has not fundamentally changed from closed beta so most of the information would be relevant even if they haven't had the time to write newer oner Known Issues or a FAQ. You just make more work of the TS by not providing this information up front.
    /rant off

    There appears to be another issue with VERY similar symptoms that isn't fixed witht he above (removing ™, etc).

    It seems to be caused by having the partition on which LOTRO is installed formatted w/ Case Sensitive on. If you're seeing this issue and the above workarounds don't fix anything for you, you could try installing to another partition (that isn't formatted Case-Sensitive) and seeing if it suddenly works for you.

    OK, I never format with case sensitive so good to know of the potential issue and workaround. Thanks.

    Another option unless case sensitive formatting is important to retain, I read that iPartition is able to convert and existing partition from case sensitive to standard format. I have not done this myself.

    You can check which you have in Disk Utility by clicking on the partition on the left side and reading Format: at the bottom left.

    I submitted a /bug for this, but not a ticket.

    Does anyone knows the solution for this?

    I tried everything here but I can't update past the Splash Screen download.

    If you check this post related to case sensitive formatting it maybe provide a way forward. I think that there are quite a few potential issues being case sensitive within the LOTRO app and paths used.

    Unhappy What and how to rename?

    OK, so I am running LOTRO off my external hard drive, which may be one of the possible reasons for it not working. But besides this, what EXACTLY am I renaming? The name at the top of the menu bar, or the name on the dock, or what else? If so, please could you tell me or link me how to do this.

    As it says in the instructions above:

    Workaround: Rename the application from The Lord of the Rings Online™ to The Lord of the Rings Online by removing the '™'. Relaunch the application and it should now progress to Login/Password and allow you to enter the game.

    The LOTRO Mac client application is normally in the Applications folder, as that is where it goes when you drop the client on the alias to the Applications folder in the disk image window on install. Like on the Turbine installation page;

    How do I install the LOTRO Mac (beta) client on my computer?

    Unless you placed it somewhere else. The Applications folder is usually shown on the left side of a Finder window.

    Not sure if it is possible to run LOTRO from an external HD. You will need to ensure that all folders/files have the correct permissions and I'm not sure it will create the .plist etc. support files correctly.

    To try to work out what could be causing the issue can you provide a bit more detail on your Mac. You can get this information from:

    1. In the Finder click on the Apple icon on the top left of the menu bar (top of screen) and click on About This Mac > More Info....

    2. Copy/Paste each line in that page, for example my setup;

    iMac
    27-inch, Mid 2011
    Processor 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5
    Memory 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Graphics AMD Radeon HD 6970M 2048 MB
    Serial Number N/A
    Software OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)

    Can't rename the application

    I downloaded. Changed the security to open the image. Opened the LotroLauncher.dmg in the finder and it shows the "The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM.app" file. The app is not in the Applications folder, its in the device called "The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM" I Get Info on the app file. However, the Name & Extension windows says "LotroLauncher.app" instead of "The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM.app". The General window says, Where: /Volumes/The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM. Disk image: /Users/my mac/Downloads/LotroLauncher.dmg.

    Bottom line: I can't rename the application to omit the "TM" because it is named LotroLauncher, to do the work around.

    Am I missing something?

    Thanks!!

    You wont be able to change anything while the app is still on the disk image. It works just like a DVD and is read only. To work it needs to be installed to the computer which is essentially a process where it copies the app data to the Mac.

    You can't patch or run the app until it this is done (once done you 'eject' the disk image which is essentially a container like a .zip file etc. used on Macs)

    You first need to install the The Lord of the Rings Online™ app into Applications folder (can put it in another location but that is the default location). This will happen automatically once you drag the app to the Applications alias on the disk image window when launched like the page shows (this copies the app to the computer. It takes a while as it's a large file. a small window will open showing copy progress);



    The page is How do I install the LOTRO Mac (beta) client on my computer?"]here[/URL].

    Once it is installed you can then go into Applications folder and change the name of the app, removing the by clicking once to select the app then again which should allow you to alter the name.

    The LotroLauncher.dmg name in a path is normal as it is the actual app name, just that Turbine set the name you see in the Finder as The Lord of the Rings Online™ in the info.plist.

    When correctly installed the app will have a path like this (or other location if you did that)

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online™

    Hope this helps. If you have any other issues do read the threads which has most of the issues with a workaround. Or post here and we can try to help further.

    If I go into my finder and search for "LOTRO" it cannot find a file, even if I dont type the acronym. Where would I find the folder to rename and remove the "tm" portion of the title?

    There is no folder to rename. There is no LOTRO folder or file that is just and acronym used by Turbine for the app. You rename the actual application. This is found in the;

    /Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online™.app
    If you followed the instructions then that is where the app will be. Just remove the ™ as directed. If that does not help, try the other options given.

    Toddlepip, I have a question for you. I got my account administrator rights now. I got past the checking data files stage and the launcher is now applying forward iterations as we speak. Do I need to have admin rights to run the game or just to patch it? After the game patches, can I switch my account back to standard and still be able to play the game? Will i need to be admin again whenever there is a new patch?

    Very glad to hear you got it moving at last Zollec

    I'm afraid I can't say for sure if Admin is required once all installing and patching is done as I haven't been in that position. Certainly I expect it is required for any changes to files, like patches as the server data has to be written to the Mac. I suspect some data is installed with default permissions which are not set the same so may break it again even if permissions are set correctly now.

    Probably the only way will be to try and see.

    I did look around before with this issue to see if it is possible to allow only app specific admin access or similar, but it really is not except with some fairly heavy work in Terminal so it doesn't look like and option

    Ok. Everything is working just fine now. It's all working as it should. Now im gonna try to see if it will still run if I change my account to standard rights. Id prefer to keep my account as a standard account to avoid suspicions. Ill keep you posted

    Glad to hear it's running for you now Will be interested to hear how it goes with the different accounts.

    As I suspected. Thanks for confirming anyhow.

    It's a usual problem with anything that has too patch itself.

    The solution would be for the launcher to elevate its privileges using Authorization Services. This causes the OS to pop up a dialog asking for an administrator's name and password, and if they are entered correctly, allows the app the perform the requested action (like updating itself).

    I think you should /bug it.

    slightly different solution....

    I played yesterday morning without issue, but then in the afternoon I had this bug pop up. My workaround was slightly different.

    Renaming the app without the TM didn't work, but rather after I removed the "TM" from the package contents (/Contents/Resources/The Lord of the Rings OnlineTM) it began to patch without issue.
