Launcher Edit
Hello !

I know this isn't the appropriate place to ask this question because it has nothing to do with interface in game. However i would like to know if someone knows if we can disable the picture on the left-side of the launcher. The one that opens the browser and brings you to the official website of the game. Or at least, if we can change that picture.

Thank you very much ! :)
By the way sorry if my english isn't correct, this is not my native language. x)

You are probably referring to the image at en/Mainform.png relative to the main LOTRO folder. Shortly after opening the launcher, this image is replaced with advertising.

After a brief search, I did not find the advertising image in permanent local storage. It is possible that they push it through every time. If the image were found locally, it might be possible to replace it until a new advertisement were pushed through. IANAL, but this would surely be a violation of the EULA. Removing the image, if this means leaving an empty space, is the same.

Removing the image and resizing the form it is laid out on accordingly would require reverse engineering of the launcher which would be a grievous EULA violation as well.

It is a good guess that SSG would not include an option allowing their advertising to be disabled.

-nosplash and -skiprawdownload are the only useful launcher options I know.

Thank you very much for your response :)
I think i will give up then, i looked everywhere too but i think this isn't possible.
I was hoping to get rid of that advertising but it makes sense that we can't disable it. ^^
