    Splash Screens Update?

    Not sure if there's been a thread on this already (tried searching but captcha function is bugged so can't complete search). Can we get an update to the splash screens (the screens that show up when something is loading)? The harvestmath festival was last fall and I shouldn't still be seeing an advertisement for it. Or there was one advertising a sale that went through Jan 1st. This hasn't been much of an issue in the past, and I'm hoping that if someone has time to work on this that'd be great! Would be a nice way to advertise new update and current sales; I also liked the region highlight ones that show a screenshot of ones to remind you how cool they were. Thanks!

    Must be some way to code a time limit on the splash screens when they get added by the coders, and then the system replaces the screen/s randomly from a list of landscape shots or something. Just an idea.

    The splash screens are being updated, but there's some bug in some but not all game clients where the launcher isn't downloading the new splash screens. Typically this is done when initially launching the launcher, and the messaging relates to downloading screens in various languages. I've noticed on my home machine that after I went into the install folder and manually deleted the old splash screens, the new ones would download. Meanwhile, all of the LOTRO computers I use that are not at home continue to update their splash screens fine.

    The fix has been posted many many times before. Go into your LOTRO directory. Find the "raw" folder, then "en", then "logo" and delete the entire folder. Start game and boom your all good. You can even make your own splashscreens.

    Are there splash screens for Update 22? I have not seen any and i even went into the folder to delete and have it re-download splash screens, but still nothing for U22.

    I'm sorry, lol, but I'm so computer illiterate; could you please tell me exactly the steps I need to take to accomplish this? For example, I can't locate the "raw" folder; would you please tell me where to go? Thanks so much!

    I've done that at home, but the screens that get redownloaded include a points sale notice that ends on 1/1. So I'm not sure that's working correctly - or maybe the wrong image is in rotation.

    Right-click on the "Lord of the Rings Online" icon on your desktop and select "Open file location". In that window, scroll until you see the folder "raw", double-click to open that folder. Double-click to open the "en" folder, double-click to open the "logo" folder, select everything in that folder (ctrl-A) and delete.
