    Lotro from guest or secondary user account on Mac

    Hi there - While LOTRO loads fine from my Mac's admin account, if I try to load it from a secondary user account on my mac it crashes during the initial loading screen before the password entry section appears. Any ideas?

    Most likely an issue with Parental Controls (i.e. permissions)
    It is not clear exactly WHAT Parental Controls do... or what the residual effect is of having turned them on, and then turned them off. They are simply NOT documented by Apple. One thing which is believed to be true -- certain permissions are changed when they are enabled.

    Other than that it is likely a permissions problem. While the various "plist" files (parameter) files should be maintained on a per-user basis, because the Mac Client is an adaptation of the WIndows Client, there are "issues."
