In DX10/DX11 mode, there's a big ugly shadow covering most of the distant landscape.
Since the F2P update and the additiong of DX11 support, there's been a very ugly graphics bug in LotRO when using DX10 or DX11. Turns out it's a problem with the "distant lighting" setting.
Here's the fix:
- Go to Options → Advanced Grahics and turn off DX10 Distant Landscape Lighting (use the search box at the top if you can't find it)
- "Refresh" the graphics by changing to some other Landscape Lighting Quality setting (ie. from high to low)
- Change the quality setting back to what you had before, but leave the DX10 Distant Landscape Lighting checkbox unchecked
Here I was thinking that my landscape screenshots would be forever ruined, so I'm very happy about finding that fix!
