Lord of the Rings:Online DX11

This is my W.I.P v3 of LOTRO 3D Migoto fix for Win10, it should still work for Win 7 too.. I am using v1.3.11 of Migoto 32bit, it does  work rather well..

Now, Frst off I am not sure if a Profile Switch is needed but I had a Unique problem with nThusim, LOTRO and Migoto being able to start..

I would first test without switching the Profile, but if you do need to use one I used Alien:Isolation..'


You can set the other  graphics setting  to your liking and as high as they can go on your PC.. The Following should be Off, besides those noted as ON. You will have to decide on or off as another user reported no problems with some of the following ON..

Specular Lighting Must be OFF.. You can turn DX11 WAter to High but when walking in it you get a wierd halo effect around characters in the water..

On a Stroke of Luck it appears shadows can be ON. not sure why the shadows work in this game but they do so you can turn those ON now..

1. DX11 Interactive water = low
2. Specular Lighting = off
3. Landscape Shadows = ON
4. Blob Shadows = ON
5. Stencil Shadows = ON
6. Environmental Stencil Shadows = off
7. DX10 Dynamic Shadows = off
8. Post Processing = off
9. 3D Object Portraits = off
10 Refresh rate = Auto/119Hz


I also added a Hotkey to Toggle the Cut Scenes and Standing Stone Scenes in the beginning. There are 2 Presets and can be Toggled with the Comma and Period keys. 

You may need to Enable Hunting in the d3dx.ini file line 216. (Open the d3dx.INI file with NOTEPAD++ then you can make the "0" a "2" on line 216)

Then ingame Press "0" on the Numpad you should have green lettering on the top and Bottom of the screen. Now go Ingame and set YOUR Desired Gaming Convergence setting and note the Conv. Number in the Green Lettering at the Bottom Right..

Now, Exit the game and go into the d3dx.ini file on line 133 where it says 4.0 and enter the number you had when you adjusted the ingame Convergence too..

Then Save the d3dx.ini file Click File Save. Do NOT forget to Disable Hunting in the INI file on line 216 - "Hunting = 0" that will disable hunting it is Best to have it set at Zero for Perfomance issues..

Now for the CutScenes the 1.0 should be good and may or may not need to be enabled but usually 1.0 looks good for cutscenes..

IF you have any issues Please Post in the Blog or in the LOTRO Fix Thread over at GeForce Forums..

Clouds Should be fixed now. I also added a 3D cursor that was broke in one of the updates of the game..

I hope you enjoy the fix.


  1. Thanks, Nephilim! Good to see that someone is working on a fix for LOTRO. Still I have some difficulties to get it started. After choosing the server, the game simply doesn't start at all. Instead, a sequence of beeps is played via the speakers. No error message! Do you have any ideas what could cause this? Could it be some anti-cheat software or something like that? (I'm using Win 10 Pro. Switching the NVidia Profiles didn't help).

    Best regards,

  2. I had that happen and had to do the fix all over as some shader got screwed up and I could not isoloate it .. let me check the version I uploaded..

  3. OK The v1.1 it should be the correct and a working version of the fix.. I might have goofed and uploaded the wrong shaderfix folder.. let me know if it does not work or any problems with it.. A

    Also you may need not remove the NVidia Profile that is a last resort if the game does not load after launching..

    1. Thanks for the quick action, Nephilim! Unfortunately, I have the same problems with the new version, too. Could that be caused by the in-game graphics settings which I used before the installation of the 3D fix?

      Best regards,

  4. Also I have not had any issues with anticheat that was not the problem.. thnx

  5. Did you have AnitAliasing on or set the Refresh rate too 120hz specifically?? If so uninstall the fix and go in and set your settings.. But I am not sure why when launching the game it is creating beeps??

  6. Which Video drivers are you using??

  7. I'm using a GTX 770 with driver version 378.78. I did a fresh installation of the game, deactivated anti-aliasing and reduced the refresh rate. The problem persists.

    Anyhow, thanks for the help! Don't mind! I'm going to play it without the 3D fix.


  8. Well you should just try setting the Refresh rate to Auto.. Those drivers should work but I had issues with them.. Currently I am using 376.33 NVidia drivers.. Do you still get those beeps when running the game??

    that is strange you get them and I do not, I am unsure what causes that.. We just need to keep chipping away I hope you are not giving up as I would like to get this solved.. I will repost over at GeForce Forums and see what the experts have to say OK..

  9. Auto refresh rate was my starting point. Yes, the beeps are still coming when I try to start the game.

    I prefer not to downgrade my drivers, as I had some troubles with it in the past. This problem occurs also with the version 378.49.

    Yes, you can repost it to ask the experts. Maybe, they have an idea what to do.

    By the way, I'm using a 64bit system.

  10. is it win 7? Sorry it is not working for you and the experts have yet to chime in as to what could cause that behavior.. I thought it was the version I uploaded but it can't be that..

  11. No, I'm using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1607 (Build 14393.953). This is the first time that I have such an issue with a 3D fix.

    BR Torsten

  12. Btw: The beeps come from the loudspeakers, not from the PC speaker. There are two different beeps involved, like the musical notes A and E. The patterns are either
    A A A
    A E E A E A

    This is probably an error message from the graphics card, but I don't know what it means.

    BR Torsten

  13. yes like I said I had the beeps too beforte whan I first made the fix, but something with the fix was amiss and I totally deleted that fix and restarted from scratch.. I am just unsure after I carefully took the fix from the game folder directly and pasted it into its own folder and zipped it..

    Yes I am unsure what is going on either weird it works fine on my PC the only thing I see different are probally the graphics drivers..

  14. I tried the old graphics drivers. For me, it doesn't work with version 376.33. Same problem.

    Maybe a dumb question: Did you try the unzipped files or do you work with the original files (without zipping)?

    BR Torsten

  15. Do you mean for me to DL the fix here and try that?? If so I will try that thnx

  16. OK I DL and installed the fix from here and when I started LOTRO I had the beeps. So I looked into it and I think I found the problem.. I Uploaded v1.2 and it should be good now Please try it and let me know if it works..

    Also I found a fix for the Cursor I just need to fine tune the fix and get it write up for here.. But there is a Payware Program involved.. Was the only fix I could do but at least it works now..

  17. It does start now! No beeps anymore. Thanks for the help.

    The sky is now as far away as the horizon. The depth of the HUD is unchanged for me.

    However, the fix messes quite some things up, for me:
    - separation is jumping back and forth, depending on the direction of view
    - some objects are temporarily rendering in the wrong distance

    Anyway, this is W.I.P., as you wrote. I think this is a very promising start.

    BR Torsten

  18. you have to change the depth of the HUD with the LEft Bracket key it is a toggle with 5 presets.. Seperation should not be jumping back and forth.. Which Objects are rendering at the wrong distance?? yes it is a WIP but works fine for me..

    I may have some issues with the sky that is why we test ;) I appreciate your feedback..

  19. OH Make sure you are not in Compatibility Mode by default.. If you changed the PRofile check to see Hit "ALT+ CTRL + F11 to switch compatibility mode..

  20. When I e.g. look upwards, the sky box jumps to a larger separation. The rendering at wrong distance is difficult to describe. I did a 3D screenshot, but I don't know how to upload it here.

  21. Hmm I redid the skyboxes they should be at the correct depth now.. I am unsure why it goes to a larger speration maybe because I had it on Infinity..

    I can upload the current refix if you want it.. you can post the screenshot over at GeForce Forums in my lotro thread here is the link:

    Also you can change the Stereoscopic screenshot to a JPG and put it on that forum I can change it back to stereo so I can see.. Screenshots are the best way to see what you see. I would appreciate it.. Hey You are like my Beta Tester ;) thank you for helping you will even get a mention for the fix..

  22. OK I figured out a Possible fix for the Keyboards differences Torsten.. What I am going to do is change the keypress to the Minus Key on the Numpad.. I seen the dfferent keyboards and seen a Picture of yours..

    So the New Keypress will be the Minus Key on the Numpad keypress we will see if that works..

  23. I uploaded the new version Keyboard should be fixed and the clouds and sky well they should be too. but there may be a few clouds not fixed.. will need to do some more testing..

  24. Hey to whom it may concern I have a new fix for the mouse.. the new version of Migoto added the option for a software cursor and voila it worked thanks to 4everawake who showed me how to use it in Migoto..

    I am just waiting to find out how to add the mouse to variable depth like the UI with the Minus key on the numpad.. when I get the I will add the new and final fix from myself..

  25. Hi,

    The download link seems to be broken.

  26. Fixed link sorry for the issue and delay have a happy new year ;)

  27. Updated again today Clouds should be fix now. Let me know if you see any other problems..

  28. OK It appears shadows work in LOTRO Natively.. I am glad that is so it looks so much better with shadows enabled and 3D vision on..
