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.

I'm back, I just came back from a fight with Hama. I had triple the riders and Hama had to rally his men to stay in line, so it looked like I was going to win, but since our riderless wargs always turned on us, our initiative turned into a big disaster. I even had a troll, but wasn't enough to beat these Rohans.

Anyways, I attempted to turn our prisoners into food and no crash as long as you leave the screen quickly, back to the army screen.

I'm gonna roll with an infantry/archer army now. Wargs are too hard to control. I wonder if morale has anything to do with this. I had zero morale the whole time, but I was able to keep them in line. I love that they try to turn on you and you gotta beat the leader of the traitors to instil fear in them to stay.

Sorry for flooding the comments page. I have a question. I'm watching a let's play by RedWantsCandy. He said that the Orcs might be stronger when they battle at night. Is this true?? Would be really awesome if you did that. Never noticed a difference when I played as the good guys though.

That's sort-of true. I believe proficiencies are better during night for orcs. Not 100% sure though.

Now I remember the other one. When I get into a battle, I get a really loud roar sound from the Wargs, I was wearing headphones, so I jumped. Probably need to find the sound file and edit it.

Lastly, I was trying to feed my army using a prisoner and after turning him into food, the game crashed.

Never experienced a crash before this.

Thanks everyone, I hope you finish fixing this mod.

I'm playing as Mordor now and it's really fun, I never thought I'd enjoy playing as the villains.

I tried to build up a Warg Rider army, but sadly it's like a double edged sword. Every time an orc rider dies, the Warg will run around charging at my troops and allies, and even my orcs will chase them around. Am I the only with this issue? I added the nightly last week. Since this happened, I cheated and had a large 300 warg army, and when I killed one of my guys, everyone just turned on each other it was quite silly watching them attack each other. Reminds me of that scene when the orcs kill each other over wanting to eat the hobbits.

I had another issue, but I'll try to remember next time. Still getting the strange bug where my enemies will make that animation when a nazgul screams. I'm just a normal Orc though.

When the evil factions win they start another war(Saruman against Sauron) right? What happens when you have companions from the other side like if you have Bolzog but you are an orc of Mordor or you have Ufthak(or whatever his name is) but you are an orc of Saruman? Do they leave your party? Do you have to save up on resource points from their faction before it becomes your enemy to keep them from leaving? Or do they start using your factions resource points?

Really they go to war against each other? Never read the books, but would like to know too. I'm trying to play as the enemy, but I'm a terrible player and I always get steamrolled by Gondor's elite soldiers. Also doesn't help when your wargs turn on you lol. I don't mind, but it's tough. Maybe the wargs only harass you as Mordor. Gonna try the other factions if they have different kinds of wargs.

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.
