When i did the update today dec. 6 2010, after that I went to log in and made it to the server authentication screen. Then it stops and connection failure screen pops up with a quit option. I also noticed that when i try to log in after i choose my server the updater says lord of the rings is already running? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE? How do I fix this? I just bought points and now i can not use them. I have tried a full reinstall, i have tried alot of the forum suggestions? How can this just happen? This is something the requirese imidiate attention.
im having a very similiar problem, cannot load past the server selection/loading screen, but does not show an error message and doesn't say already connected to Lord of the Rings Online when i reload the login menu. anyone find an answer to this yet?
Same thing is happening to me. I just downloaded this game and haven't played it before. I get into the server then get to the authentication server page and it sayd "Connection Error: Connection failed.
There was an error with this connection, then i have to quit . i was really looking forward to this game.
Can anyone PLEASE help me ?
Go through the steps in this Knowledge Base article and see if any help with your issue. It's possible that your AV or Firewall automatically updated and is now blocking the game. Check those and make sure that LOTRO is allowed to connect.
I'm getting the same thing. I just spent 3 hours downloading a game that doesn't even work! I checked my firewall and it's allowing all the correct files. I downloaded Microsoft NET Framework 1.1 and it still doesn't work! Please help.
