Hey there. How exactly do I get the scenario-editor to work with these units? The Olog-Hai e.g spawns as a spearman. The Nazgul as a Mameluke. What exactly did I do wrong?

Sounds like the mod didn't install properly for you. Can you confirm you get the same problems when you play a Standard Game? Try playing as Mordor or Minas Morgul to check these problems.

Can you confirm you got the C patch installed before you installed ToME? And that there aren't any other mods that could be interfering?

I can't wait to see the completion of this! This is really cool, though the new units could look a bit better.
Great job!

Thanks. You'll be pleased to know we've replaced nearly all AoK units with custom designed ones, with separate standard units per civ!

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…
