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.

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).

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).

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

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.

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!
