We aren't making it explicitly harder, but smarter! The new AI will have the the capability to build the new units in ToME, research the new techs, and have the knowledge of ToME-specific strategies and counters. That will make the AI smart, challenging and more fun to play! :)

Well making it harder wouldn't have been a bad idea anyway, since at the moment the hardest AI is way to easy to defeat :P

Hehe... Well, the fact the AI is getting smarter means its difficulty is going to increase a notch or two. But this doesn't mean it'll become insane!

Did you try launching the game using the normal Conquerors shortcut? Also try running the game using "Run as Administrator".

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…
