    Keyboard does not work for typing/chatting

    I am using the latest version of the Mac LOTRO client. The game opens fine and runs without issue except for one thing..... I can't use the keyboard to chat. I tried to create an ingame ticket but I cant even type in the ticket window. Moving the character around with the keyboard works fine however. Very strange. Any ideas?

    That sounds like a well known bug we have - it happens every time u change your graphic settings. Solution: reboot the client

    Hope this helped...

    Before re-starting the client, you might want to try command-tabbing to the Finder, and then command-tabbing back to LOTRO. It works for me!

    This is a "known bug" -- basically you cannot change ANY graphics setting and retain Keyboard Focus.

    Example: Game launches in Full Screen at some resolution. You want to play either in Windowed mode or at a different resolution... so you change them and enter game... oops can't type in chat.

    Solution... launch game; change graphics settings; quit game. Re-launch game ... you can now type in chat at your favorite settings.
