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.

When I start a battle against someone, the game crashes after 1 minute every time. I play it under Warband.

@Khamukkamu can you help me? ı properly setup warband version of tld and last nightly patch. and ı was playing until today.

ı am at 34th day in a game, and ı am stuck in that day, because there is a error everytime when ı try to spend time(with control+space) or try to go somewhere.

ı try to cheat and ı got my character teleport somewhere in map, but still ı get the same error. ı don't know why?

Khamukkamu Oct 14 2014, 11:30am replied:

I'm sorry, but I have to ask, please take no offence:

1) Did you install this way: TLD Main File --> TLD Warband Compat Patch --> TLD Warband Nightly Build?

2) If you did, when it asked to Overwrite, did you overwrite?

3) If you did 1 and 2 properly, then did you start a new game after installing nightly patch?

I had to ask because the crash when you go somewhere is a result of a save corrupting crash that has actually been fixed with the nightly build. So if you are still getting that crash, then something must have gone wrong with the installation (steps 1 and 2) or you played an old save game.

Let me know.

Do I have to start a new game every time I install a new nightly build?
Thanks in advance.

Khamukkamu Oct 10 2014, 11:02am replied:

The official answer is Yes, but you can keep trying your old save. The fixes are not really that big anymore, and most major issues have been fixed.

However, you do need to start a new game if you have never installed a nightly patch before, as it fixes the save corruption issue.

So for example, if you came from Nightly Build 1 and updated to Nightly Build 2, you dont necessarily need to start a new game.

But if you came from Warband Compat Patch and updated to Nightly Build 1, then yes, you need to start a new game.

1) You can get a quest from Saruman where you are to capture a troll. If you exceed his expectations, you may be rewarded quite generously.

2) Purchase the music (either digital or physical copy), renaming the tracks to match what's on the Music folder of TLD, and then replace those files.

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.
