Bonjour, et merci beaucoup! Nous sommes très content que vous aimez notre jeu!

A propos des Mumakil: car il y a des archers déjà debout sur les Mumakil, nous ne croyons pas que c'est une idée nécessaire... (Dans la version prochaine, vous trouverez que les Mumakil sont devenus trop robusts.)

Pardonnez ma langue, je ne sais pas français aussi bien comme vous. :p Il n'y a pas une version française de ToME, mais vous pouvez le traduiser pour tout le monde svp. :)

I have re-installed ToME and Age of Empire II and The Conquerors but my problem is always there.
I play only with Dol Guldur,
In the Great Years, the technologies who are not available are :
-Vassal of Mordor
-Mines of Moria
-Hill troll
The technologie "Mines of Moria" isn't in the technologies tree.
But I don't know what technologies aren't available because I haven't got all.
I started in the Fall of Beleriand and I selected " all techs "
In the Map Editor, I can make a balrog but I don't find balrog in the Castle in the Great years...

Could you help me, please ?

Oh, can you try without selecting "all techs"? Maybe that will fix it. There are so many changes in ToME that "All Techs" seems to not work properly.

What technologies are not available? For which civs? And are there any graphic problems you are facing?

Not every civ gets every tech, so it may be that the game is running fine for you. If it isn't, we suggest doing a reinstall - your installation may have gone corrupted.

The new maps aren't supposed to have custom buildings, because their position can't really be controlled. And random maps are just that - random! If you play on Rohan, why should a Helm's Deep be already there? You can easily create your own Helm's Deep as Rohan if you research Burg Stonework. You'll get the Hornburg as the new Castle! :D

Thanks! Yeah, we are aware of those bugs and how annoying they can be. We've already fixed them in our development versions, and can't wait to release an update with lots of new graphics and other changes too!
Plus, the upcoming update will have all the Heroes available as well! Keep watching. :D

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…
