Thanks for reporting, I'll look into that map. Strangely, no other player has reported an issue with that map, so this might be caused by something else.

So other maps are working fine for you? Cheers. :)

This same thing happened to me before I installed the patch. Have you installed it, Warhust93? Before I installed the patch I couldn't play Harad, Mordor, Misty Mountains, or Gondor. Once I installed the patch it was all fixed.

On a side note, the game *is* much better after the patch, but there were buildings in the pre-patch version that were much cooler than the actual beta version. The Rohan-type civilizations had Helms-Deep as a castle, and the Elven civilizations had grey/blue buildings that were elgantly designed. I'm going to be frank, I don't like the current design of the Elven civilizations.

Sounds good. Gameplay vids are definitely something we're lacking. Keep in mind there are some game-breaking bugs other players have helped us locate, which have been fixed in the coming update. :)

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…
