Updating game data lotro
It patched ok and logged in, then crashed with the error message about "You don't have the current version of the client." I re-downloaded the launcher and client files (I've put shortcuts to the download links on my browser toolbar - looks like I might need them frequently), put them in the LOTRO folder, restarted the launcher and then the game worked.
*Update 29/6/17: Another patch, another crash and error message about not having the correct version.
I'm using Linux Mint 18 and Play On Linux with Wine version 2.8, Windows 7 compatibility and Direct X 9.
I've also tried Wine 2.7-staging, Wine 2.9-staging (with Open GL, CSMT or default rendering settings) and Windows 8.1 compatibility but it made no difference to the store.
Suggestions for fixing the issue included: Within 48 hours of the Update, the developers had new launcher and client files for affected players to download and copy into the LOTRO game directory (also recommended to backup the original launcher configuration file first).
Compendium is a Quest, Deed, Crafting and Item database Addon for Lord of the Rings Online (LOTRO).
It is meant to supplement the leveling process by making finding of quests, mobs, and items easier.
The latest update on May 31 was intended to fix the in-game store, but had some serious side effects for a lot of players, with both Windows and Linux affected.
Basically, from what I understand, the in-game store uses some third-party software and the third-party changed their code to comply with some new legal requirements and Standing Stone Games had to change their code to maintain compatibility.
