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.

Okay, can I get an explanation for this? Everytime I start up the TLD mod, it says: RGL Warning "Couldn't load Textures\tld_progress_bar.dds and Modules\TLD\Resource\meshes_face_gen.brf" What's wrong? I've been aching to play it after watching SurrealBeliefs videos on YouTube.

This must be a wrong installation. Here:

Please watch the "how to install video," as it will explain it better than me.

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
Text files go into your TLD folder, the wargs.brf go into TLD\Resources folder.
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.

9) Have fun!

Having some trouble with step 9. Every time I try I get "error_responsibilities: go to work and do laundry"

Any ideas?

Try to lower your settings and battle unit capacity.

IIRC Invasion 2 uses our orc models (and a lot of other TLD stuff), so that's a strange question. Anyway, the point is - we like our models as they are.

But I saw uruk-hai and they are different in TLD and Invasion 2. Anyway, thank you for answer.

I red the manual and now I feel stupid. Sorry again for that.
P.S. I suggest to everyone to read Manual before asking anything as it said in the beginning.

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.
