Never mind, I have it, but the mod keeps crashing. I've tried both shortcuts to start the game (The mod version and normal one), but it crashes both ways.

Can you confirm you don't have any other mod installed? If you ever did, can you make sure they were properly uninstalled?

Not anymore, I had to uninstall the game and reinstall, but it crashes when I try to play a scenario, like a death match.

It really depends how you download it. But you should be able to just open it regularly or you could get a shortcut on your desktop.

You could download the freely available WinZip tool to open such files, if you can't.

This is a great game. However there are a few changes I think you should make. First off, I think you should make the tech tree like the standard one and not so you have to read them all. Secondly, certain characters are not strong enough, like all the different troll, and don't let me forget the mumaks are way too weak. There are other ones that you should check out as well. Also it would be nice if you did a campaign and make some heroes that are in Lord of the Rings.

Thanks for the feedback! Yes, we noticed all the unjustly weak units. Trolls, Mumakil and such are now as strong as they deserve. And we have added tons of heroes for you! All these in the upcoming update. Keep a watch!

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…
