Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online Launcher for Linux and Mac OS X (C) 2009 AJackson Based on LotROLinux (C) 2007-2008 AJackson Based on CLI launcher for LOTRO (C) 2007-2009 SNy To install ======== NB The following items are required to run PyLotRO Python (2.x or 3.x work, 3.2+ recommended) PyQT4 recommended optional package: pkg_resources On Ubuntu you should only need to install python-qt4 (or python3-pyqt4) Install using sudo ./setup.py install or sudo python setup.py install or if you want Python 3.x sudo python3 setup.py install To uninstall ============ sudo ./setup.py uninstall or sudo python setup.py uninstall To run ====== From terminal: pylotro From menu: Select the menu option for Lord of the Rings Online A settings wizard exists that can attempt to find relevant installations of LotRO or DDO. For CrossOver and CrossOver Games it searches in the default bottle location. For Wine it looks for wine folders in your home directory (folders tarting with a full stop with a directory called drive_c under that). For all options it tries to find the game in the "Program Files" directory (or directories off that). If your game is installed elsewhere then you will need to manually configure the game. The wizard will default hi-res graphics to enabled if it finds the file associated with that (client_highres.dat) in the game folder. Note the DLL used for patching is set to patchclient.dll, for DDO you will need to enter the options window and manually change it if you wish to patch the game (see below). To switch between the launcher using it's settings for Lord of the Rings Online and Dungeons & Dragons Online select the Switch option under the Options menu. To patch the game files with official patches released by Turbine/Codemaster select the Patch from the Options menu and follow the instructions. Note at this time Dungeons & Dragons Online needs a copy of patchclient.dll from Lord of the Rings Online book 11 or newer. This file should be renamed and placed in the DDO directory and the name entered under Settings -> Options in the Patch Client DLL field. You can change your settings via the Settings -> Options menu. All options are game dependant (ie can be set differently for LOTRO and DDO). If save these settings is ticked then your account name, language and realm selection are saved when you successfully login. NB: Your password is not saved for security reasons.
