Lord of the Rings Online

Good evening community and happy Easter!
I have problems starting the game mentioned in the subject as a 64Bit client.
After logging in and starting the game, I only see a lot of colorful boxes, I hear the sound, but the graphics are totally broken.
Does anyone have the game running as a 64bit client?
many thanks

Ubuntu Gamepack 20.04
gui: lxde

Can you give more details on your setup per the pinned post? I installed and ran the 64 bit client on my setup successfully (5.11.11-xanmod1 kernel, lutris 6.4 default wine runner, Windows 10 set in the wine configuration, dxvk 1.8.1 and 64 bit client selected in the launcher, amd gpu). The launcher is a bit annoying, had to restart 5 times before I could get into the game first time.

Kernel: 5.8.0-48 generic
Lutris: 6.4-x86_64
DXVK: v1.8.1L
Wine Config: Windows 10
Desktop Gui: LXDE
Lotro Launcher is set to 64bit

i get this screen when launching lotro


i started Aoe2 over Steam, and have this same picture in yellow…

Can you run the following in a terminal (just gets the basic system info including the graphics card and driver versions) :

inxi -GSC -xx

Also can you start lutris from a terminal using lutris -d and then start the game. When the games starts and you get this screen, are you able to shut the app down or do you need to reboot the system?

yes i can shut the app with Alt+F4
I found the problem, when I activate VKBasalt I get the faulty picture.

Goverlay starts normally, apparently I have an error in it.
Do you know that too?

many thanks

I have vkbasalt disabled - never found a use for it so that is a new one on me and enabling it with a few select enhancements had not effect on the game in my system. Anyway, glad you got it sorted!!!

I tried VKbasalt because I like to use Reshade. Reshade starts but unfortunately I cannot select or activate a preset.
thank you for your help and support

i can not activate 64-bit
when i type in Consol - file Lotrolauncher.exe , i get the answer that the .exe is 32 bit
also reshade x64 dont get started.

When I look in Games/LotR/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/StandingStoneGames/The Lord of the Rings Online/x64, there is a 64 bit client. When I run the game and select the 64 bit client (push the 64 bit client button which does not change and then select save) I can see the lotroclient64.exe in my active processes.

thanks for your answer, i have no lotroclient64.exe in my task-manager.
i found the UserPreferences64.ini, so i think the 64 bit client is running.
Reshade 64bit dont work, but i got vkBasalt working with Reshade Effects.

thank you jhu for your help!
