Thanks for the idea, but it did not work for me.

Wine has sound (test in audio tab of winecfg works) but it does not seem 
to be passing any sound information on to lotro (no options in sound 
window of game settings). Sound used to work fine until recent wine 

I did find some threads talking about the wine audio changes and 
mmdevapi. Does anyone know - Is there a chance those changes are 
preventing the game from finding the soundcard? What tools or utilities 
would I use to test and/or fix that if it is a possibility? I ran a 
couple searches but was not able to find many hits for current/semi 
current  wine versions other than one about mmdevapi and STO, but the 
thread died without resolution and did not seem to be an audio problem.
