    Well thought it was fixed. Got up this morning and it appeared to install, no error messages. So started the game up and get "201 error, no game dat files". So I follow the troubleshooting steps up to uninstalling everything and reinstalling, but now back to the error with the hash code for the patch file. At this point will just have to open a ticket. On my laptop I have installed through Steam and after flushing the DNS I can now log in with no issues on that. Might try to install through steam on my desktop to see what happens.

    Warmer but no LOTRO love yet

    Now after setting my router to cloudflare's open DNS settings, and in case anyone missed it. The error I have when attempting to log in is post password entry when I click on any server and click login. Modal Window Indicates
    Game Error [202]
    RED X Can't find the local data file 'English', [202]
    with only an OK button as an option

    Note the German version is working fine but my German is not so fine anymore.

    This post/info resolved my 202 error today.

    You don't need another computer to fix this problem. You just need to make the LOTRO launcher download a fresh version of a corrupted file.

    In your main LOTRO folder ( ...\Turbine\The Lord of the Rings Online ) look for the file client_local_English.dat. This file should be about 800 MB in size. If is small, then simply delete it and then start LOTRO from the icon. The launcher will load a new copy of the file."

    My client_local_English.dat file was 1K in size, not 800MB. I deleted that 1K file and let the patcher do it's magic.
    I'm in and operational.
