hi all. i installed lineage 2 through 4game, but i was messing with the 4game's processes in task manager because i had some problems. after few hours of messing, i finally managed to install lineage 2, then wanted to play, clicked play, then it asked me if i want to update the 4game program, but regardless of what i clicked, nothing happened. so i thought it is caused by messing in the processes so i restarted my computer and it didn't help. also tried to start directly through l2.exe, but it was just crashing with a russian message that i couldn't understand. (why russian, not orcish?) so i decided to reinstall this and noticed that the download server is offline. so after hours of finding that file on my hard drive, i ran it and it said i don't have installed ms visual c++, but i've already installed it while previously installing 4game. i had no choice, clicked "install" and it's now installing and installing... either my computer and my network connection are idle. so i uninstalled all previous versions of microsoft visual c++ as you have told me and now the game works. but the lord of the rongs online doesn't work anymore. i have recently paid an annual subscription. will i get a refound? also, after spending hours trying to run the game, i've noticed it's very late and i have to wake up early tomorrow. will i get a compensation for getting not enough sleep? i guess not for both. wouldn't it be easier to just create a simple launcher without problems instead than messing with integrating it with a website and making some advanced stuff like external login?
