    Valve (Steam) /Turbine do not know what they are doing.

    1- Steam claims that the Mac Client needs 70GB of disk space -- but it then only downloads 40GB.

    2- That 40GB contains both the Windows Client AND the Mac Client -- you get TWO sets of the graphics files, plus ALL of the Windows DLL files in the download.

    Clearly whoever packaged things knew nothing about the Mac Client or the Windows Client and simply stuck the two in the same download directory for LOTRO. Really lame.

    3- The downloaded STEAM client is DEFAULTED to Bullroarer! -- so people immediately run into the "You do not have the current version" message!

    For the love of....



    So happy I did not begin to download it. Thanks for the heads up at least Valamar. Explains why the download is such a crazy size.

    Can you confirm what the Steam Mac client version is from the;

    Applications/The Lord of the Rings Online.app/Contents/Resources/lotroclient.app/Contents/Info.plist

    Last Bullroarer U9 B2 version that worked was;

    <key>CFBundleVersion</key>
    <string>0900.0050.5844.8008 lotro_u09</string>
    Would be interested to know if there are any changes at all.

    Unfortunately it is not. Just that they forgot to change the Bullroarer in the info files so players trying to log to live get the version error.

    Given that U9 testing will wind up soon I don't hold out much hope we will get any testing this Update for Macs. What bug fixes, if any, will be included it's not possible to tell until it is released.

    As of today, three days after the Mac LOTRO client was officially launched on Steam they have still not rectified the double install of Mac/PC client and 36GB+ bloated install download



    Or corrected the erroneous System Requirement information (70GB HD space etc.)
