Well, the devs are working as hard as we can to bring this mod to your table! And we plan to port it to HD immediately after we release it for vanilla AoE2. I hope the wait won't be long. :)

We are now using UserPatch, so that will take care of that for you.

This is an amazing mod and it's incredible how much work you've done! My only suggestion would be to make trebuchets available to every civilization, or at least a creature that's as effective in taking down castles, otherwise it can get pretty stalematey. Thanks for your work!

We are adding Trebuchet alternatives for civs that don't get them: Field Trebs (build trebs right on the battle field) and Sieging Catapults (long-ranged versatile catapults equivalent to trebs, but less sturdy).

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…
