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 added the sounds, but didn't notice much of a difference besides hearing the Wilhelm scream. So I skipped it. Oh well. I wish someone made a mod that fixed all the bugs in the game hahahaha...

Your game is still crashing? Did you install the nightly build?

If you havent, make sure you add it AFTER TLD main file and the Compat patch. If you don't remember how to do it, here goes my canned response :)

1) Download the main TLD file here: Moddb.com
2) Download the Warband Compat patch here:http://www.moddb.com/mods/the-last-days/downloads/the-last-days-of-the-third-age-33-warband-patch

3) Download the Nightly Patch here: Bitbucket.org
4) While that's downloading, read the manual here: Synnaskole.sweb.cz
5) Now that you have all files downloaded, open the main TLD file zip, copy the TLD folder into your Warband\Modules folder.
6) Afterwards, copy the contents of the Warband compat patch you downloaded into your TLD folder. Overwrite when asked.
7) Afterwards, copy the contents of the Nightly Patch you downloaded into your TLD folder. Overwrite when asked.
8) Start Warband, select TLD from the drop down.

Yeah i have the nightly patch and the compat patch. It only crashes when i enter large battles. It's not the wargs crash anymore, i've tested that out, but whenever i fight a group of say 40+ i crash instantly :b

Khamukkamu Sep 16 2014, 8:37pm replied:

Wow.. ok. I don't know how to help you then :( I have my battlesizer set to 400 for 200v200 battles, and I have not had any crashes yet.

With the nightly patch, did you start a new game? cause you can't salvage an old game (a game you had on before you installed the nightly)

SpartanKing001 Sep 17 2014, 1:46am replied:

Yeah I did. Just throwing this out there, but i'm using PeaZip to extract the files. I never got the notion to overwrite anything like you stated. Could the reason i'm still crashing be because of peazip? If so, do you know how to properly do it with peazip? Thank you for the relpy!

I also noticed some newer bugs, but this is my first time playing as Harad, so they may be known.
-Missing heads.
-coming near my enemies and they do the fearful animation where they bend down and cover there ears, but I'm not a nazgul though :(
-Also noticed that most of my allies don't join me in battle. For example, I charged over to our Camp to defend against a siege. I wait in town, but then I see my brothers coming to hit him for a land battle. So when the chief goes in first, I go in, and the other 2 armies on our clan were so close, they should have joined us as well, but the game didn't mention them.
Harad is weak btw, but I like it that way. I'm cheating a little here and there, but still not too much, so I still have a challenge going against Gondor. My army seems to take longer to level up, but I also see they don't have much of a troop tree.

It's hard to complain about anything in this beautiful mod since they worked hard creating it for fans, as someone said.

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.
