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.

Frankly I don't see the issue. M&B and Warband are pretty much the same game, the only thing the modders would care about in regards to which game to choose should be which one is easier to mod. They themselves stated in the release that Warband is limited. What's more this mod was in production long before Warband was released.

There is one difference. M&B destroys my motherboard and warband does not.

does anyone still play the original mount and blade? would it be worth buying just for this? i noticed it is 20 dollars on desura : /
edit: i just realized that the original M&B is only single player. that is depressing : (

M&B goes on sale for 5-10 bucks on steam every couple of months. That being said, worth every penny for TLD alone.

I've been disappointed by every M&B mod I've ever tried... Except this one! I've been playing it for the past hour and a half. I love how it's not just M&B in Middle Earth. There are actually major differences in the game mechanics.

My ONLY complaint right now - why are you always starting game like some kind of hobo? This is really annoying. For example I started as Isengard uruk and was attacked by 7 tribal goblins after 5 SECONDS in game. So they defeated me and I lost even that crappy sword I got in the beginning. :)
After that I only watched fights from behind the lines like some kind of hobo-commander. :) Until mutiny occurred. As I was armed only with some wooden club, I lost this fight in a blink of an eye. And my squad was halved by the winner.
If they call you Commander, why are you so badly armed after all?

Because you don't play well, I guess. That's why hereditary titles should be abolished.

After playing a few minutes (20 min - 1 hour) i get an error message that says "RGL Error" and then the game crashes, is it possible to get rid of this problem?
I have the patch for the game.

I've downloaded and enjoyed about 20ish mods, and love playing them(all the ones I have would take too long to list). So I know what I'm doing in terms of downloading mods using Winrar to my warband files.

So I download the TLD main file off of moddb to my Warband Modules folder, and the warband combat patch to the Warband/Modules/TLD file. When I start the game, it says that hlsl_data_handles[5] is not valid, and then goes through handles 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 31, 41, 46, 47, 48, and 49.

Then it takes me to the screen where it says the INI file is processing(the screen with the loading bar) for a few seconds before closing with the message that

Mesh names should have at least 2 characters: rename "0", in file "Modules/TLD/Resource/tld_missiles_a.brf"

Does anyone know a workaround to this problem? Should I have extracted the files to MountandBlade 1 instead of Warband?
