We are sorry, but…
– Archet Aid is put on ‘Ice’ for the time being –
Archet Aid is put on hold until the big problems with the Update 15 is solved by the developer team of Turbine.
In the new Update 15 that was launched on November the 5th, a new and ‘improved’ version of the music system was introduced to the ‘live’ servers of Lotro. This Update made almost all (previously made) abc files sound total ‘rubbish’, due to the developers change of individual volume settings for each instrument, and some tinkering on how the different instruments sounds.
Issues that had been reported heavily by the lotro musicians when the update was live on Bullroarer (the beta server) was not adressed, and the system was then launced onto the live servers without any changes.
We hope to be able to present ‘Archet Aid 2014’ to you all sometime this year, but it is all up to Turbine to get us our old system back as it was on tuesday.
To have a better understanding of the problem, take a look at these threads on the Official forums for Lotro:
..and there are more threads in those sub-forums too.
