    Question Video desktop display corruption after game launch

    I'm looking for some guidance. I've been struggling with an odd behaviour with LOTRO since August 31st where my Windows environment turns to a bluish limited range colour display after running the game. When I was playing on August 26 or 27th, everything returned to normal after exiting the game as always.If I run with DX10 or the 64 bit processor option, this issue occurs during the game as well. Otherwise the game plays normal. All other games run fine. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the most recent drivers which does not help. I was wondering if there was an update that caused this as it's only happening when I run LOTRO.When I exit LOTRO now, I have to restart my computer to use it normally.

    I don't think there have been any game updates between those dates. Nothing shows in the Dev Tracker. The servers were down on the 30th but that was just maintenance.

    Same problem

    My computer does the same thing. Blue unreadable craziness outside of the game. The screen stays the same blue after the game is closed. I took screenshots to post but they look normal now! Any hints? Thanks, Sam

    If you have a laptop that has both a CPU with builtin GPU and also a separate mobile graphics chip (nVIDIA) then you need to make sure to use the nVIDIA control panel to force the client to use the nVIDIA Chip.

    That’s the exact problem I have too. If I switch LOTRO to windowed mode, I can use my desktop normally. As soon as I exit the game, it’s corrupt. It’s a regular desktop computer.
