Merci pour vos conseils
En fait je suis francais,
J'ai joué sans l'option "all techs", et j'ai mines of Moria et le Balrog !
Mais c'est bizarre car dès que je joue sans l'option "all techs", il me manque bien des technologies mais il y en a qui apparaissent (Mines of Moria, par exemple) !
Et inversement, lorsque je joue avec l'option "all techs", il y a beaucoup de technologies, mais il en manque plusieurs (Mines of Moria, par exemple)
Et des technologies, comme Vassals of Mordor, ne sont pas dans les 2 options
Pourquoi ??
Ne pourriez vous pas rééquilbrer les technologies ?

On ne vous conseille pas de jouer avec «All Techs». Parce qu'il y a beaucoup de changements majeurs dans ToME, ce mode ne fonctionne pas correctement. (Même si, il faut qu'on obtient l'accès a «Mines of Moria» quand on joue avec "All Techs"; je chercherai la raison pourquoi ToME ne vous la donne pas.)

A propos «Vassals of Mordor», ce n'est pas disponible pour Dol Guldur! Maintenant, ceci est available seulement pour Mordor, Isengard et Umbar. :)

There will be better terrains, Moria pillars etc. And there is already a Balrog in the game you have right now! Try playing Dol Guldur and researching Mines of Moria. :)

We are so glad you like it so much! We are a tiny team of just 2 people who worked on the beta you are playing now. Although we did get great help in our time. Read our short but very unusual history here: Aok.heavengames.com

I've never faced that issue. Maybe its a particular map? What map were you playing, and with what other game settings?

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…
