    Install  from the discs then patch the updates..including the DX10. Game was not implemented initially with dx10...you can patch from the LOTRO site.  At least you don't have to download the whole thing....saves you a little time.

    where in EU site are the patches?, game patches itself before you can start it automaticly.

    Last time I played I could of swore trials couldn't use the higher end graphics available, including DX10. Have to have an actual account, I think.

    that might be it you know, I do have an old account but i wanted to check out the graphics again before I possibly re acitvated my old account so maybe the trial does not let dx10

    You can down load trial  from the following link na6.salesforce.com/_ui/selfservice/pkb/PublicKnowledgeSolution/d. It has the standard and high rez option. It also includes all Shadows of Angmar and Mines of Moria content. Also I do believe that the high rez client would be the one with DX 10.

    The high res client has nothing to do with DX10. The high res client just contains the high resolution (Very High setting) textures that can be used with DX9 or DX10. All versions of the client include DX10. If you can't enable DX10, and you are using Vista or Win7 (no DX10 on XP), then there is an issue with your system. Try reinstalling DX10.

    I wasn't aware of this. So... if you're running a trial account, there's the answer.

    No, no, no. DX10 is completely disabled in XP compatibility mode.

    they must have changed someting cause i run vista and in the past i had to select xp mode to get the DX10 option to work in my currently setup the xp mode isn't selected ..so if selected de-select..and try if it still dosent work then u may have a driver issue.so D/L new drivers for your card then try.

    LOL! I have run the game in both Vista and Windows 7 and without any issues. All in full DX10.

    Either he has no DX10 capable GFX card or Trial Accounts are prohibited to run the game in DX10 (wich I find hard to believe to be honest).

    if you are running in XP compatability mode DX10 will be greyed out because DX10 is not supported in Win XP. It has nothing to do with the trial

    I miss DAoC
