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 give up trying to install this for m&b (already have mb warband), because everytime I load the mod, I always get an rgl windy_floral error (or something close). I did everything correctly when it comes to the manual installation. Also, Iron launcher didn't work, so I had to move the files manually from the data TLD to data MB.

I'm sorry, but I'd have to say that you probably did not read the manual or you just skimmed through it, because if you did, you'd have read that you no longer need to use the Iron Launcher when using the M&B vanilla version of M&B. There is a .dll that you have to copy over to make the game work without having to manually move files.

Please uninstall everything, and while that is happening re-read the manual, and then see how it goes.

"get_shader failed for; windy_flora". this has happened the 3 times I've installed the mod.

I read the TLD Manual and did all it told me to when it comes to installation and it didn't work, and now I've done what you said because apparently I didn't read it even though I did, I'm not a retarded commenter who doesn't know how to read instructions. Still, didn't, work.

Ok. Lets see (I am operating on the assumption that you want to play TLD on vanilla M&B (NOT WARBAND) based on your original comment)

1. Install Enhanced edition of M&B (download here: Moddb.com).

2. After thats done, download TLD for M&B Vanilla (NOT WARBAND) here: Moddb.com

3. Unzip and copy TLD folder into your Modules folder.

4. Afterwards go into the TLD folder and look for dinput8.dll, copy that and paste it into your Main M&B Folder, where mount&blade.exe is found.

5. Run M&B. Select TLD from the drop down.

That should be it. Tell me which step do you have trouble with?

Optional Step:
6. Have fun.

From your comment, you did not state your problem. Im guessing you are having crashes? If so, look a few pages back from this comments board and see that I posted some steps on how to install the mod properly. Please follow those steps, step 9 is optional.

Highest Rated (20 agree) 9/10

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.
