Yeah, that was too much of an effort to bother correcting for the first ToME release. Higher priority to get it working for you guys to enjoy! :D
We will, surely, get around to working on the damage flames eventually...

It would be cool also if you guys could add an option for choosing a random good or random evil orientated civilisation(instead of just random civ);because some units have bonus' aganst only evil units so this would make multiplayer games much better :)

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...

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…
