I was about to report a crash and a few bugs, silly me forgot to update first :P Amazing job, I actually prefer this over BFME 1 & 2, always have preferred older 2D isometric RTS games over the newer 3D ones. They had generally better gameplay (and sometimes graphics!).

Amazing and fun mod, though when playing Isenguard during the second and third age all units had their default textures, is this a bug or are modded skins for the Isenguard faction not in this release?

P.S If you haven't guessed my favorite faction is Isenguard :)

Just like in regular AoK, common units have same textures across the factions. Furthermore, as per Middle-Earth history, Isengard was a fortress of Men until Saruman sided with Mordor. Hence, until you research Vassals of Mordor, Isengard appears like a Westron establishment.

If you research Vassals of Mordor, you get some novel units in Isengard: Orcs, Uruks and Wargs. The other units still represent all the Men in the employ of Isengard.

If it doesn't run, just launch AoK like you normally do. Should work the same.

Try running from the normal conquerors shortcut. That might do the trick.

I have a problem with the game. It can't start and shows this message: Could not initialize graphics system. Make sure that your video card and driver are compatible with DirectDraw. Despite this, I have never had any problem with the game without the mod. Thanks you.

Are you able to run the game using the normal Conquerors shortcut? That will launch ToME just fine.
If not, uninstall ToME and try to run AoK. Does it throw the same error?

People report if the game crashes, you likely do not have the C-Patch installed. Download the C-Patch here: Forums.heavengames.com

I have a question:

I play AoC on Voobly from time to time, do you know if it's possible to play this mod there? Or what would be the best way to play multiplayer?

Also, if I don't have my CD anymore, is there a way to play single-player?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

We are trying to get in touch with Voobly and GameRanger for adding ToME. Till then, you can play a ToME game by making sure everyone has ToME installed. It should work fine.

Hey,

first of, I love your Tales of Middle Earth Mod for AoC :) However, I found a few annoying bugs I wanted to tell you :)

When playing Arnor and choosing Arthedain as specialisation, all my buildings HP is reduced to 20% instead of gaining a 20% buff. This effectively reduces my Castles to 1000HP, Walls to 180HP etc etc =/
I hope you can fix this in the future :)

Furthermore, I am not sure but some realms have odd buildings, like Isengard having a mixture of orc/mordor and Gondor buildings. Is this intended?

Anyway, I LOVE your mod and I hope you keep up with the good work! I especially love all the thoughts and work that also went into the detail, like matching technologies etc.

What I would like for the future and think you might take advice from (I know you dont have too much time ;) )

- Fifth realm/civ building set. Right now we only have Elves, Numenor, Rohan, Mordor. Maybe you could add an Easterling/Southron set for Umbar, Harad, Rhun?
- Different buildings according to age

Thanks for the bug reports! We plan to update ToME this month with all the bugs fixed. :)

Regarding the suggestions, we don't have more building sets on the high priority list. Currently, we are working on adding heroes, more eye candy objects, and fixing the bugs.
