Solving 64-Bit Client Issues

Published: Written by: Eresmir

So when using the new 64-bit client on any modern computer/laptop, you can run into some of LotRO’s classic graphics issues.  Specifically, crashing on tabbing out, not being able to activate Directx 11, or encountering strange colours (usually in a blue spectrum).

These are all easily fixable, and below I’ll post the relevant solutions/links to make sure you get the best out of the game.  The 64-bit client is definitely worth it.

If you’d like to switch to the 64-bit client, you can do so in the launcher settings…


ame Error [105]/[128] (crashing when tabbing)


While adjusting video settings, or multi-tasking by alt-tabbing to other applications, LotRO crashes, generating Game Error [105] and/or Game Error [128] and then the lotroclient has stopped working error.

Game Error [105], [128] DirectX 9 Errors While Alt-Tabbing (etc.)


trange Spectrum of Colours (usually blue)


LOTRO’s 64-bit client is not recognised by your graphics card drivers, so your CPU/laptop is continuing to use the Intel integrated graphics chip, resulting in poor performance and other problems.

Take a look here for possible solution…
