And for the very end, it's worth repeating again TLD is primarily based on Tolkien's books, not on Peter Jackson's movies. So no need to ask about plate armour, uruk-hai crossbows, odd elven blades and other movie inventions.

We will be deleting/ignoring comments/questions that are flaming, rude or about LOTR movies stuff, Warband, bugreports and tech support. These have all been addressed in the manual and forums a million times before.

In my game, when I'm camping and it says 'Mordor rallies. Mordor has become unmatched', my game crashes.
Playing as a Silvan Elf and camping near Northern Rhun Camp to wait for Rhun Scouts to spawn and pass by.

Hello everyone,

I can´t open the "The Last Days" version 3.3 (w/ last patch), because when I run TLD, it says that "get_shader failed for: windy_flora". What am I supposed to do?

Hello, check out my small "sub-mod" for TLD.
It balances some units, fixes tech-tree errors, balances item values, and add some new units.

Excuse me the possibly dumb question, but I took a quest from Lady Galadriel and she asked me to rescue 4 prisoners in order to boost the morale of the her people, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this quest.

I tried interacting with enemy strongholds and beating warparty with prisoners (no elves of course) and that doesn't seem to do the trick.

How do you complete this quest?

Prisoner rescue quests are hard to complete. The best place to look is gondor though. It may take you a loooong time to find some though. Best to tell Galadriel you are not doing this quest and get a better one.

Thanks for the reply but I figured it out in the end. Turns out I WAS doing the right thing but the way the game handles this quest has a few quirks. I had to release some of my junior recruits to make room for enlisted prisoners and the problem lied there. if I released 8 recruits to save/enlist 8 prisoners the game considers I took NO ONE from the prisoners list and therefore doesn't update the number of prisoners released. Hence why the quest wasn't updating for me and why I had some trouble doing it till I figured this behaviour.

This mod is utterly incredible! Everywhere I look I see the four years it took to make this world. From the orcs to the elven armor. The detail is staggering, every scene lovingly crafted, almost every armor textured to perfection. +5 The mod is well balanced and the immersion is total and complete. It immediately reminded me of an Elder-Scrolls Lord of the Rings game. +5 Now sadly there are the bugs. Several quests are broken and some of the enviromental textures (elven bridges and Gondorian stone…

Great graphics side(excepts from some minor issues like terrible Isengard buildings), new shaders (windy flora!) bus scripting siede is comeplatly failed compared to that what dev team promised. Gameplay becomes booring too soon.
