Re: Lotro launching issues

So true. I see that I didn't test with all 5 parameters, but just individually.
Updated so you can use all 5 params.

Re: Lotro launching issues

Hi,

It is old, but the cmdlineTurbineLauncher.exe has been working very well for me to launch my LOTRO clients via Innerspace/Isboxer. I have 5 characters, so it is really useful to launch them without having to type in the passwords.

However today I got this error:

Code:
Game is: LOTRO
Connecting to datacentre.
Looking for world: Arkenstone
Selected world: Arkenstone [US]
Determining language.
Found language by file name.
Grabbing client command line configuration.

Unhandled Exception: System.Xml.XmlException: Expected DTD markup was not found. Line 1, position 3.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!


UPDATE: Well it is probably not the unitlity. I just noticed an update message, where all game worlds will be unavailable. So I bet it is just a cryptic message, that it can't contact the server. I tried to log in with the game client, and I got a pretty cryptic error as well. That's when I notied the downtime notice.

Re: Lotro launching issues

Getting issues with the standard game launcher, so it is probably server related.

//EDIT: If I had to guess I would say it is because of the downtime which is currently going on.

Re: Lotro launching issues

Yes, indeed. I just figured out the same.

Thanks for the reply! I didn't notice the downtime message. A possible improvement to make the error from the cmd launcher less cryptic, maybe? You don't see the downtime notice when you use the cmd launcher. Anyway, I'll remember for next time. Try the client manually first, and look for downtime notices.

Thanks again!

Re: Lotro launching issues

Hi,

The launcher was working great for a long time. Now after a recent windows update and reboot, it's having the same issue at the beginning of this thread. I've made sure I have the latest launcher. Thanks for all the work on this!

P.S. I checked, and there was a game server update today Aug 10. But I can log in with the regular LOTRO client, without using the launcher.

P.P.S - Well, it seems as though it might be a transient issue like was reported above. I rebooted my PC again, and the launcher worked without issue.

Maybe the patch/maintenance wasn't quite finished? I'm not sure.

It's working well again! Thanks!
