This is the first time in years that I've signed into moddb - just to ask this very question.

I've just got the HD version, after not playing the original in about 12 years... wondered if there was a LOTR mod and this was the first thing that showed up on google :]

HD is definitely on the cards. We are ever closer to completing the final version of ToME, immediately after which we'll begin porting it to HD. :)

Great! do you think it will be able to work via the steam workshop, due to how much it changes the game?

I'm fine with it being a manual download if it needs to be, but I'm sure it would get you guys a much bigger player base if it was available on the workshop.

Cheers for the reply :]

Probably yes, or at least we'll try our best. Lets also look forward to better mod support in the upcoming HD version update (they are rumoured to be working on that).

Clearly your installation is corrupted. Did you make sure you have the 1.0c patch installed on your AoK before you installed ToME?

Run the game using the normal Conquerors shortcut. That will launch ToME too. Let me know if this works!

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…
