    Angry LOTRO does not start

    I have downloaded the 18.5 Gbyte. Installed it in the application folder.
    When I start it I get a windows-like, well, window.
    It asks for my account name and password.
    Then it switches to an empty window.
    And nothing more happens.

    Any suggestions?

    To see what should be happening see: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Mac_Client_Messages

    If this is your first time running the client, especially if you are NOT using English -- you need to accept the EULA and TOS in ENGLISH first!

    This is a "known problem" with the Mac Client --

    Before you enter your userid and password, click the down arrow and select English.
    Enter your userid and password; click login.
    The EULA and TOS windows should pop-up.

    Accept each one and after you get to the character screen quit the client.

    Re-launch; change to your preferred language and click login.

    You should be good to go.

    Thank you

    Thank you for reacting.
    But after I fill in my account name and password, it switches to an empty window.
    2 options abort and save. Save cannot be chosen and abort does not react.
    I can only kill it by going to the activity centre and forcibly kill the process.

    When I start up I do get an error message:

    Initialising, please wait...
    Available languages checked.
    Fetched details from GLS data centre.
    Realm list obtained.
    World queue configuration read
    [E12] Error getting news

    Is this normal?

    Are you talking about the Turbine Mac Client, or are you talking about some WINEskin package?
    The error [E12] error message comes from PyLotRO, not from the Mac Client.

    There are no known working WINEskin packages available today. They all broke when Riders of Rohan was released, and I have not seen any re-built since then. The only way to use WINE is to have a full installation of WINE on your Mac -- either using Codeweavers Crossover, or WINE itself.

    The page I referenced in my earlier post will show you what the Turbine Mac Client should look like -- if it does not look like that, they you will be unable to login.

    Download the Turbine Mac Client from either lotro.com or Steam. Steam is the more reliable source if you have installed Apple's security updates and eliminated Java from your system.

    See: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Mac_...load_via_STEAM for information about the STEAM download.
