When I uninstalled this mod and tried to run the Conquerors it said "Could not initialise graphics system". Yet AoC worked fine before I installed ToME. Why is this and how do I fix it. (I love the mod but I want to enter legit tournaments for AoC and am trying to practice.)

I'm not too sure, never heard of this before. Could you PM us so we can investigate this further?

It said the same thing when I reinstalled ToME. It's becoming depressing only playing Age of Mythology

When I was playing Mirkwood and my friend was playing Eriegion we found that after about an hour of multiplayer our castles stopped firing arrows at around 1 hour real-time. We also couldn't build castles either. Is this purposely implemented or is it a bug? Cause if it's implemented I no longer like this mod. Spam-build castles is a favourite tactic against my brother. He hates it and his reaction is hilarious.

There is a documented bug with the Dwarven Stonework tech available at the Library (University) in the Great Years age. It upgrades your Castle's graphics, but your Castle loses the ability to fire. Both Eregion and Mirkwood have this tech, and I'm sure you researched that when you noticed the bug. Please avoid this tech at all costs. We are very close to releasing the update which will fix this bug. Sorry for the inconvenience this has caused! :(

The Numenorians will have the Temple of the Valar as a wonder if you start the game from the great years or any age after when you make the policy decision. It is common and nothing can be done about it. When you play at a later age, the civ shows a combination of the bonuses which each tech gives(not all bonuses of all techs are available). Thus, we have both the King's men and the Temple of the Valar.
Never really noticed the other things though. I usually do not keep my eye open for those.

My version of the conquerors will work without the mod installed, yet when i install the mod, whenever i start a game it says that the expansion has stopped working and that windows is searching for a solution.

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…
