I downloaded and installed, to me it was seriously bugged up. Could not take screenshots thanks to images going rainbow.

Technologies were mixed (Gondor gets some of the orc cannibalism and harad technologies) and units had wrong sprites (Some rider units turning up as massive Cave Trolls and Mordors Mountain Trolls are small swordsmen)

Also it contained multiple disappearing units like it is missing sprite from some stance (Idle/running to some direction/attacking etc.) and if they disappeared you could not select them.

Also Mordor buildings did not look like in that screenshot, I think my installation went wrong.

Looks like your installation was corrupted. Can you please confirm you have the c-patch installed on your Conquerors?

Had to reinstall whole game and then it worked. I guess the AoE2 gold version don't have 1.0c but they have some other.

Great mod so far, works well in Gameranger for online play! Hopefully GR adds official support for it. Awesome work, I'll have to show this to my extended fam at our reunion, I have a feeling it'll be a hit!

I played with Isengard and I noticed that their trade carts use the mayan and aztec type carts when empty, but when returning from an allied market they turn into the classic horse and cart version.

Otherwise great mod and hope to see many players on GR soon.

I keep getting "insert correct CD" errors and "application needs elevation errors" I don't even get the program to load to opening cinematics or main menus.

Before anyone asks, it is a legal copy I installed it straight off of the disk, and it is patched to 1.0c.

Try loading from your normal conquerors shortcut. Should do the trick!

Funny its says Cinquerors Mod. but it says its for AoK. Whitch is it???

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

The Conquerors is actually named "Age of Kings: The Conquerors Expansion" (ignore the AoE part of the name). So the correct abbreviation for Conquerors is AoK:TC.

Plus, we prefer using "AoK" in our promotional media as that is more widely recognized than the ambiguous "AoC".

ToME is a mod of The Conquerors. :)

This mod is amazingly awesome. I recommend it to everyone I know who plays AOE2. My question is though, is there a plan to make a full Dwarven civilization? I know there is the option to ally yourselves with the Dwarves (which I do) but I was just wondering if that was in the plans for the development.

Thanks in advance and A++ for the mod!

Thanks! Plans for a Dwarf civ were cancelled early in ToME's development, as it is really hard to model a civ out of people who live underground/under-mountain. :p

I still cannot get this mod to work. Does this mod require AOK or TC?I am using windows 7 if it matters. I installed the C patch for the conquers. It still crashes after I start a game.

If you uninstall ToME, are you able to run the normal Conquerors? If so, what's the version displayed in the game? (Version can be checked by clicking the banner at the top when you run the game).

How do I get the game to run 1920x1080? And how do I prevent that awkward red-grass bug?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

Two options:
1. Try the widescreen patch (http://aok.heavengames.com/blacksmith/showfile.php?fileid=11077) and one of numerous fixes to the red-grass bug (http://aok.heavengames.com/blacksmith/showfile.php?fileid=11108 Aok.heavengames.com).
2. Install Userpatch which fixes these issues for you (you'll need to uninstall and re-install ToME).

I have installed the mod and whenever I try to run it, it says "could not initialize program. Uninstall Age of empires 2, and then run setup again." any ideas?

Are you able to launch Age of Empires 2 normally (i.e. without ToME)?

This is a very amazing mod, but I can't play with it. I am using windows 8. I can play to Age of empire Conquerors but not with the mod. When I launch the application, I have an error message which say that the graphic card has a problem with directdraw. Could you help me? Thx

I do not have AOE2 and have not played it in years, however have been wanting desperately to get my hands on it to use the custom scenario option to create landscapes for a novel. HUGE LOTR fan here, how can i get this? I am afraid of internet downloads, do i have to go to store and buy AOE2??

You can probably find AoE2 at your local supermarket or game shop for a very low price. Have fun!

Looks like your installation is corrupted. Did you make sure you have the 1.0c patch installed before installing ToME?

When I'm about to launch a LAN multiplayer game, there's the "you must have a CD insert in you CD-ROM for play" mention or somethings similar.
It works well in single player but I can't play with a friends on LAN

Could you try launching ToME using the normal Conquerors shortcut? I think that might work for multiplayer, won't give you the error. Let me know if that worked.

Install says it dose not support my version of Windows. The game was made for Windows 95 or later and I'm running Windows 98SE. Do you have a manual install? Or another installer?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes

Sorry, but our installer may not support Win 98. I highly recommend you upgrade to a newer version of Windows. Win 98 is ages old now!
