    Ideas? It ran one time and since then blue screens anytime I try to run the game. What is the method I should follow in updating my Windows configuration? As in, how do I get current video/sound drives without upsetting Bootcamp? I am running XP/SP3

    LOTRO went free to play, but alas I cannot even do that!

    Have you updated your boot camp drivers? Also, make sure you get the video card drivers from nVidia directly.

    Well I keep the OS updated for the Mac side, would an Apple software update download new Bootcamp files for the Windows side? (yes I am daft)

    I have an i5 iMac, so I use ATI drivers.

    However, all is not lost, the damn thing runs under Parallels. Blew me away, didn't realize a D3D game would run. Of course its in a "window" but what the hell, after picking one of the larger screen sizes it almost looks good.

    Too bad LOTRO NPCs look like the walking dead.
