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.

Could it be just a corrupted download?

No, likely you're just installing it wrong. Make sure you follow the instructions exactly.

I thought that I did. I copied the dinput. file over and still nothing. The dinput log says this at the bottom when i clicked on it.
"the engine is asking IL to clean things up, looks like the game is closing or something... who knows, has been fun!"
I have no clue what i did wrong to be honest. I followed instructions on the manual just as it said. I even looked up a video on how to install it and did it the exact way and still nothing.

What is your warband version? Should be the latest version.

Also, try downloading again.

1) Download the main TLD file here: Moddb.com
2) Download the Warband Compat patch here: Moddb.com
3) While that's downloading, read the manual here: Synnaskole.sweb.cz
4) Now that you have both files downloaded, copy the TLD folder into your Warband\Modules folder.
5) Afterwards, copy the contents of the Warband compat patch you downloaded into your TLD folder. Overwrite when asked.
6) Download Swyter's Quick Fixes here: Drive.google.com
---Copy to \Modules\ folder. Overwrite when asked
7) Start Warband, select TLD from the drop down.

---NOTE: The fixes will introduce a strange text issue ("wazupdawg"). Ignore them for now.

8) To see whats being worked on, check out Swyter's Trello here: Trello.com

---That should be it. Note that a patch is currently being worked on, but I do not know when it is going to arrive.

Optional: 9) Have fun!

So I downloaded it and did everything correctly, but i get this message right after the intro movie saying "Warning: hlsl_date_handles[46] is not valid" after i click okay it goes away and goes to the loading screen, then when its about half way loaded i get another message saying "Mesh names should have at least 2 character names. Rename "0" in file" Can anyone help? I have no idea what to do.

Thanks for your replies as always! Alright, I've yet to play as the Twilight of man :) so I will choose Gundabad next. I can also see why they're a challenge to play as.

Also will try that rebalanced mod. I was about to take a break to play something else. It's been awhile since I touched OpenXcom and Nehrim, I wanna finish that mod too, but I gotta see what the rebalanced changes bring. I mainly wanna take a break to wait for that Patch that's coming. and I don't mind starting over again. I have a save for every good faction, except Dale, they didn't interest me that much. Rohan, Erebor Dwarves, and Gondor were my favorite factions to play as, so yeah, can't wait for the patch!!

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.
