I'm having a problem: Each time I start a new game, I select the difficulty and the civs etc. and when I click start the game crashes when it says "Starting a new game." How do I fix this?

I don't know if you're willing to do this but what about actual hero units? Like Aragorn, Legolas, Gothmog, etc? I haven't had the chance to play this yet except for create a map. They don't even have to be in the actual game, instead they could be exclusive to custom scenarios and only under the heroes tab.

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…
