Lord of the Rings online support
Hi all (especially you Andrew /shifty.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shifty:' /> ),

I've read alot about the lotro support and after buying my 3d vision set and the new acer monitor last week I started it up right away.

To summarize the positive points that surprised me:
DirectX10 works great (at least for me)
Bloom works great (same there)

The bad points:
2d cursor
All texts over items/npc/pc's are rendered without a z axis
No post processing effects (it works with them as long as you don't look at water for example, then the glasses flicker)
The sky is not rendered at the correct depth

I contacted Turbine and got the reply: That we (Technical Support) are aware there is not any current full support for (nor any planned future support for) 3D "stereoscopic" options such as Nvidia's. That is not to say that it might not be offered in the future just that currently there are no plans to.

I contacted Nvidia support (they don't even have a profile for it!) and got the following reply: We can provide software i.e. drivers for our 3D vision kit and graphics chipset with operating system but for this a game need to be supported with 3D Vision kit.
Regarding compatibility of game on our website we cannot include a game on supported page of our website if that game doesn't work with 3D Vision kit.

I also got a reply though that if people show interest for it on the forum they'll send it over to the driver developers who will have a look at it. Please share your experience/frustration regarding this very beautiful 3d vision game and let's make it even better looking ;)

I've been harping on the lack of LOTRO profile for 3d Vision for a year. The one time I contacted customer support about it they told me they had profiles for all the Lord of the Rings series video games, and didn't seem to know or understand that LOTRO was a great big successful mmorpg that is wholely unrelated to the Lord of the Rings series games.

Honestly, though, I don't know how much good a profile can do for an existing title like LOTRO? I'm not sure exactly how much driver optimization really affects real world performance, but either way don't hold your breath for a LOTRO profile. Nvidia must have some beef with Turbine or something.

I don't think anyone knows what the driver support actually does, except for Nvidia that is.

I got the following message from Nvidia after filling in a survey that their support wasn't that good:
[quote]Hello Michael,

In order to further troubleshoot this issue I would suggest you to visit the forum using below website.

Please post all information on the forums to generate additional responses from other game players and then this way we can ask our driver team to include it as a game profile.
