Hey guys. Sorry I've not been on in ages but RL keeps me too busy.
I been tinkering away whenever i get the time and slowly getting things ready for what i hope will be the last patch. I have added all the factions to the War of the Ring mode but stil need to make a few more heroes for most of the factions. I have given the King's Men basic units a workover too so they look more like arnor units as the angmar models looked a bit crap. Right now im working on the AI but unfortunatly that means i need to play a lot of games to test each little tweek i make. After i have the new heroes and AI sorted, i'll just need to give everything a fine polish and then im done.
Im not sure if thats more information than you need but thought maybe some of you might to like to know where its up to and to know im still working on the mod.
Crap, meant to send you a message not post of your page. Oh well, lol. : )
Hey there Fella. Sorry it took a few days to reply. I just tried to download the mod and it all worked fine for me. I just scrolled down the page for the mod and clicked the top link (Battle Of The Pelennor Fields 0.9) in "Latest Downloads". Then, after the new page loaded up, i clicked the "Download Now" icon opposite the Mirrors line. A popup window came up with adds but the download started automatically. There was a link at the top of the window that said "Click to download Battle_Of_The_Pelennor_Fields.rar if it doesn't start automatically or try another mirror.", maybe try that if you still can't get it to work.
Good luck man and let me know if you still can't download it, I'll see if I can think of another way to get it to you.
No, sorry man, nothing new atm. Im well busy now-a-days fella and just about to get a new wee kiddo so Im hard pressed to find time make new stuff for it.
If there is anything you want fixing though, I'll should be able to do that so jusy let me know.
Sorry to keep you waiting for new stuff guys.
Right. Then Im really lost as what to suggest, maybe try reinstalling it, I really don't know.
I'll go look on some forums and see what I can see
Ok, I'll go check it out. Thats the only unit/hero that your having problems with? Also, is the whole hero invisible (hero and horse) or just the hero?
Are you sure your putting the mods in the right place and I know this may be a stupid question but are you unzipping the folder?
On my computer, I have put the mod in D:\ so it looks like: D:\Battle Of The Pelennor Fields
Inside the Battle Of The Pelennor Fields folder there is folders like art, bases, data etc... (D:\Battle Of The Pelennor Fields\data\ini\objects..... for example)
The target in the shortcut looks like this: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "D:\Battle Of The Pelennor Fields"
Hope some of that helps.
I can only think that you may have the target wrong. It's really importand that you add a space inbetween the end of the old target and the bit your adding. should look something like this: "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "C:\Battle Of The Pelennor Fields"
The space between lotrbfme2ep1.exe" and -mod and the space after -mod is majorly important. If either of these are missing, it won't work. I can't actually remember what happens if they are missing but I think it would just load the normal game like whats happening for you.
Also, make sure you have the right destinations in the target. Let me know if you still can't get it working.
If you are running on xp, you shouldn't really need to run the game in the compatability mode. I only run it in compatability mode to get it to run in xp.
I suppose the next thing to try is to delete it all and start over. Maybe even reinstall the game if you have the discs. If it doesn't work after that then Im lost : (
In the meantime, I'll check about and see if I can find anyone with similar problems and how they solved it.
Mmmm. So you did everything in the guide? Did you also run it in Compatability mode?
See, because it's an old game now, it nearly always needs to be run in compatability mode. Im running Windows 7 so if your running anything newer than that, then Im afraid I can't help. Im confident we'll get it sorted though bro.
Almost positive there's no problem with the asset.dat. The only way I know of to make it all work is to do it exactly how I said in the guide bro.
Thanks a million fella. Will do bro. ; )
I think your having the same problem as the guy above. Try running it in Compatability mode. : )
Sorry, have been away for christmas. You need to run the game in Compatability mode. I run it in windows xp mode, works perfect for me.
Yea, I kinda feel the same but its a bit harder to make armour look elite without changing the colour. Also, if you read some of the lotr stuff, quite a few of the elite soldiers have gold on their armour, most notably easterling soldiers and the like.
I may well get round to changing that at some point though : )
If you click on "Battle Of The Pelennor Fields 0.9" link in the Latest Downloads window, just above this windoe, you can download it from there.
Nope, all the evil factions are still there plus three new ones : )
some kind of ability***
No, all the old factions are still in the game and for the most part, are unchanged. Mordor has had a major overhaul and Gondor (Men) has had the Rohirrim removed and replaced with mounted Rangers. I have also given all the basic units kind of ability but I reckon thats about it.
Thanks a million Kooskia.
If you have any ideas for anything specific, just let me know.
Thanks a million fella.
If you have the time, I'd like to hear what you guys think of mordor, I have done a lot of work on them since the last update.
New download is up!
LordSyron, let me know the things that you think need balancing and I'll look into it. I'll see what I can do about the King's Men heroes as well. Unfortunatly, I haven't got any 3D modding programs or know how to use them so I can't add any new buildings. All I can do is reskin existing ones but if you have any ideas, let me know.
Hey guys. Really sorry I've not been on for ages, the summer is crazy for me.
I have actually tried to upload a new version several times over the summer but it keeps timing out. I'll get on it right now.
Ok guys. Im just finishing the Blue Wizard's skills and then I'll put the this next update up for you.
If you want to help with suggestions, I still can't decide which faction to give them to. At the moment, I have put them with Rohan but that was only ment to be while I was working on them. I don't really want to split them up but together, they are a bit too powerfull.
Im just trying to find everything that needs finishing before I upload the next update. Things like finishing off all the remaining ability, hero, unit and building icons and descriptions. I also keep finding little things that I have not finished or been able to finish and have to find ways to do it.
I'll have it up asap, sorry to keep you all waiting.
Im afraid I can really healp you there Aero. The best place to go for answers like that though, is the3rdage.net or Forums.revora.net that link probably isn't the best plase to ask as its just the modding forum but they will point you to the right forum.
No, not really. I have mordor finished so just going back to finish polishing everythink else.
Well, I think the only elite type of orc that would really make any sense would be a melee unit of some kind (something like you suggested). So, when I was waiting to see if anyone had any suggestions, I started messing around making some Morannan Orcs. I think I'll just stick with them and make them into a five orc supre elite horde, something like the Dwarven Zerkers or Isengard Beserkers. Sound good enough?
Ok Mordor fans, here's the Orcs we have so far:
-Orc Warriors (grunts, very cheap and very quick to train)
-Orc Archers (grunts, cheap and quick to train)
-Black Orc Warriors (basic, average cost and time to train)
-Ork Pikers (basic, average cost and time to train)
-Orc Axe Hurlers (elite , average cost and time to train)
So, now Im thinking about Mordor's Super Elite units (mini hero units). So far Mordor only has the Black Riders but thats not enough. I have another Badass Orc Warrior model that I havn't used yet that would make an ace super elite melee unit but thought I'd see if anyone wanted to suggest anything else first.
