    Strange, I was able to sucessfully load and play Lord Of The Rings Online just fine.
    No problems, no hiccups or anything!
    It runs flawlessly!
    I was able to crank the graphics settings to the max on everything with my old GeForce 550 Ti.
    I also noticed that Wine 1.7.40 supports the Steam In-Game Overlay finally. I didn't have to disable it.
    So double-success here!

    I noticed the screens loading when logging in, but never have issues with it.

    Surprisingly, I'm not really enjoying LOTRO
    Maybe its because I'm just starting out, but I'm not impressed with the graphics/visuals or the gameplay.
    1. I have to hold left mouse button just to look around
    2. graphics are sub-par (compared to Neverwinter, Age of Wushu)
    3. I don't have full control over character combat. Just click and he fights for you
    All of this for 22GB of space?
    Neverwinter is 13 GB and is a few "notches" better

    Good call, totally understood!
    I've never been a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, but I do have the movies....
    By the way, just posted a gameplay video:

    Hello,

    I installed Steam and then Lotro using the method supplied in the thread starter. The game boots up but gets stuck on "Retrieving content list from Akamai...". I've restarted the game couple of times now.

    Welcome to the forum!
    I'm actually going to post a step-by-step guide this Friday on Lord Of The Rings Online
    So if you can wait, I'll walk you through it.
    For the most part it was pretty simple...
    After you launch LOTRO the first time from Steam, it will have its own launcher and updater.
    There will be another 3 Gigs of updates to download.
    Then after that you should eventually get to a login screen.

    I didn't have any problems with any steps during the update, login and playing the game.

    Are you able to play any other games in Linux?

    Well I installed pyLotro and place a link to the application folder on the PlayOnLinux drive. Had to run the patcher separately through pylotro but it did work. Then I launched the game with no problems - or so I thought. Now I notice that whenever I alt-tab to another application and then return, the game no longer accepts mouse clicks. I'm unsure though how to configure wine further.

    Well after I turned off emulating a virtual desktop and set lotro to use a window to to my screen size, it works just fine. I saved some space by not allowing the application to style the window.

    Interesting, I've never heard of PyLOTRO before
    Since it uses Wine like PlayOnLinux, you can use some of Wine's features.
    I always use the virtual desktop
    Yes, there are some Alt-Tab issues depending on the game, but the mouse and resolution always work great with the virtual desktop enabled.

    I've read about other games only utilizing one CPU with Wine
    I don't know a solution except waiting for Wine Developers to fix it.

    Tomorrow morning I'm posting the guide, so try it as well.

    Hi, It's been a year and a half since you posted this install guide and I wonder if there's anything newer I should look for.
    I'm having problems loading it, have managed to figure out most of the guide but am stuck on a couple things:
    I don't have WINE 1.7.8 - It initially gave me 2 choices of later versions - I tried the steam hack version. When it didn't work, I went to the full list but 1.7.8 isn't there. (The list skips from 1.7.55 to 1.8 etc) I also tried 1.7.39.

    When I run Steam I get a message that playonlinux has crashed. I updated it to the latest version.

    Here's the first crash log (running Wine 1.7.53-steam-crossoverhack)
    I also got a Fatal Error from Wine message saying: Failed to load library mscorlib.dll (Win32 error:0)

    Actually there is a bug with steamwebhelper in Wine, so the "crossover hack" version is the only way to initially setup Lord Of The Rings Online.
    So stick with that Wine version to get it setup and downloaded. Once you are ready to launch, try using another version of wine:
    1. Launch PlayOnLinux
    2. Click Tools
    3. Click Wine Manager
    4. Select Wine 1.9.14-staging (right side)
    5. Click Right Arrow >
    6. Close Wine manager when its done
    Now in PlayOnLinux configure, click the down-arrow to select Wine 1.9.14-staging and you should be able to start the game. If not, definitely try some other versions like Wine 1.8.3
