    The story of my new PC trouble (aka Hurin is awesome!)

    I hope this helps anyone having a similar problem

    Recently I bought a fancy new gaming desktop 'cause my old one finally burnt out. Specs are:

    CyberPowerPC with AMD Ryzen 3 2300X
    8GB Memory
    AMD Radeon RX 570
    1TB HDD + 240GB SSD
    And Windows 10

    A very nice upgrade considering my old PC was at least 10 years old. So I got everything setup and downloaded the game with no problems at first. But when I tried to change the resolution settings I got that 'Could not initialize Direct3D. Please ensure that Directx 9.0c is installed' error and had no option to switch between Directx options of course. So after a bit of forum searching to refresh my memory (been awhile since I had to do this) I found that wonderful tip from Hurn about the "ForceFakeFullscreen" setting in Userpreferences. Changed to True. Boom Done.

    Yay! Hurin is the best!

    Here is a link to the thread I found in case anyone might need it: https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...ION-WORKAROUND
    Today is a good day for Pie.

    Do not meddle in the affairs of Burglars, for they are subtle and quick to shank you.

    Hurin WAS the best, poor moderation pissed him off and he quit a couple of years ago; I suspect - like me, he has a look in now and then though; and also like me, only when something odd is going on.

    I noticed he hadn't posted in awhile. That really sucks. He was so helpful and smart 'bout this stuff.
