Hi
Amazing mod , pure Lord of the Rings experience , custom content never before seen in other mods for this game

I hope it isn't dead and i hope you will port it to the HD

If not or meanwhile i hope you guys give the mod its own widescreen capability like Age of Chivalry Hegemony brings along with the well appreciated 60 fps increase that i think would really be nice additions

It's an unofficial bugfix and feature update. It's been around for a while now, so not that new, but very much worth getting.

It probably doesn't matter, but the recommended practice is userpatch, then ToME.

Excellent game. Units are have amazing detail. I don't like the design of the Elven buildings but hey, that's just opinion. I haven't noticed any glaring glitches. **Just a few problems... After opening the game a few times, it stopped playing 'Lord of the Rings main theme' and replaced it with the standard medley. I suppose that if I reinstalled it, it would work just fine but I'm far too lazy. I noticed that Rohan, as an AI, will build the Hornburg rather than the standard castle for that type…
