Downloaded today, thought LOTR would make a good MMO got the setup no hiccups, already installed/uninstalled/reinstalled trying to figure out whats going on. for some reason when I try to make a character, there is no race selection and it's hindering me from continueing. any thoughts?
I have now turned off my firewall- reinstalled again and no improvements. that makes me doubt it's by my error, so my first impression of this game: not impressed. might change my mind later, if I bother, but so far not impressed at all.
so, do I simply uninstall direct x 10 find d9 and refuse to allow the game to auto instal d10? because I hear thats next to impossible, but I've never tried, but then I don't know how. Direct x doesn't show up in my program files so I'm not even sure where it's located, what has been your successful method? if it helps to know: I'm running windows 7.
For most players who have this issue, it only affects the character creation screens. So once your character(s) are created and you're just going to be logging into the game with them, you can set it back to DX10 if you want.
(There is another problem that makes some computers have problems even in the main game world with DX10 or above, but that problem is much more rare than the one that affects the character creation screens.)
