Isengard and Minas Morgul are supposed to look like Westron buildings (white brick buildings), until later in the game. If this is what you are seeing, then this is intentional as per Middle-earth history. Or are you seeing normal AoK buildings for such civs?

The first issue is strange. I hope your install isn't bad, and you weren't playing with "all techs".

The second is a well-known issue in AoK that you should be aware of by now, its been 12 years mate!

Sounds like a bad install. Make sure you have the 1.0c patch and then try re-installing.

mais pourtant si je joue sans l'option "all techs" sur par exemple l'Isengard, je n'aurai presque aucune technologies...
Comment savoir pour quelle civilisations il faut utiliser "all techs" ou pas car pour certaines civilisations, jouer sans "all techs" est un handicap et pour d'autres c'est un avantage ?
Pouvez vous m'aider s'il vous plait ?

Comme en AoK, on vous conseille de jouer tous les civilisations sans le mode "All Techs", et nous sommes sûr ils n'ont pas trop de difference/advantage sur des autres. Même si, la version prochaine contiendra les civs plus équilibrées. :)

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…
