It's not dead. On the right hand side click the link to their "official page", it's a forum.

From what I've gathered they're pretty much done on the art side of things, it's the boring scripting work that needs finished but of course there's not much they can show in terms of that.

Hold tight, it will come. (and hopefully an AoE2:HD compatible version, hint hint devs ;) )

reeke thanks for that.
Can you assume that the bugs will be handled? REALLY IMPORTANT!
Main Bugs:
--Some techs don't unlock trebuchet for races who have access to it!!!
--Dwarven Castle Bug!!!!
--horses and oxes cost NO gold at farms!?!

LOVELORDO use the mod with Age of Empires 2 v2.0a(age of kings) + v1.0c(the conquerors) + UserPatch (v1.4RC) + Mod (Tales of Middle Earth v0.6 BETA) to run it perfect.
Install the mod into your age of empires 2 folder

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…
