IMPORTANT for all ToME- Fans!!!!!!!!

Use the mod with Age of Empires 2 v2.0a(age of kings) + v1.0c(the conquerors) + UserPatch (v1.4RC) + Mod (Tales of Middle Earth v0.6 BETA) to run it perfect.
Believe me your units move smoother and there is also civ limit 1000, color choosing for enemy and ally and so on and so on :) Furthermore color fix and windowed mode :)

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…
