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 hate how they dismantled the noble/marriage system. not only that, but because towns get destroyed when they are captured by certain factions, its nearly impossible to get land of your own and become a noble. and to top it off, they make it impossible to enact sieges. witch is rediculous, the whole point of mount and blade is freedom. if all the gondor nights and mordor hordes are fighting at minas morgul, yous think you could use this as an advantage to re-unite the osgiliaths while every one is distracted, but not in third age. i feel so upset that this mod, with so much potential to become one of the best,if not the best, was runined by these foolish features the developers added for whatever reason. it is a shame.

Play The Veiled Stars instead, which has what you want.

TLD purposely narrowed the scope of M&B due to the devs' design of their mod. They are focused on the "WAR OF THE RING," not "THE MARRIAGE OF FRODO AND SAM"

And what foolish features are you talking about? Have you ever found any other mod that has the same war system as TLD?

Basically, you are one of the same people that just wants the same thing. So if Henry Ford would ask you what you'd want, you'd just want a faster horse.

Could you link me to the changelog/fixes list for the Nightly Patch? Also, It might also be good to upload all fixes/patches on here (MODDB). Thanks man.

So I've added the Warband patch and it works great except there is a bug whenever I try to enter a major battle. Every time I try to fight in one, ie more than 30 troops, the game stops and shuts off.

add the Nightly patch as well. Get it here: Bitbucket.org

Overwrite when asked. Start a new game. If you dont, you'll keep crashing.

You can get a quest from Saruman to capture trolls. If you exceed his expectations, he may reward you generously.

So hows progress? I hope you guys fixed the problems where faction specific weapons appear in the wrong faction, or at least raise the price of those weapons to say they're imported from a far away land.

Hi bluewario,

I don't think there is any progress. Only Swyter is working on it now, and he is only concerned with the port.

CPPCoder is no longer active, so no new features/bugfixes can really be done.

Unless you know any coder who would actively help, then it is safe to say that any feature progress has halted.

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.
