Global modification for BFME2 1.06 with Gondor, Mordor, Arnor, Angmar, Mithlond and Rhun. In the final version you can see updated graphic, optimization of performance, a lot of new units and heroes, big stone walls, more realistic ships, artillery and more.

General articles of the mod (click on image to look):


Now you have access to build big might walls and play real epic game! In the article you can see many screenshots of different walls with descriptions and a couple of videos.

TLHotTA 1.0 have really updated graphic with normal-mapping technology. This technology is old enough, but it never fully used in any other mod for BFME series. Nice precision with perfect performance - look on the screens.

And, finally, now I'm working on the patch 1.1 and after I'll be working on the campaign (latest WIP).

why does your mod have such a low rating if people are saying that they love it?

Because the most part of people don't understand general idea of the mod :р
They talk about lore and think that I'm an idiot and even didn't read LotR)

I will sound incredibly inpatient by saying this, but how long does bugfixes take to do? I have found it that every time a Real Time match is ended in War of the Ring, the game crashes. I also had a crash while playing as Rhun, when my flying fortress's timer ran out. I do not know if it was because of the flying fortress or something completely different (was in a 3v3), but it would be nice if you could look into it.
Anyways, incredible mod and I hope to see it become better as time passes.

PS: When archers are in meele range of enemy units/buldings they become EXTREMELY unaccurate, as I would think that archers hit their target more easily if it was closer to them. Just a thought.

Problem with crashes after long-play with Angmar/Rhun/Mithlond AI is very difficult and I don't understand why it happens.
If you play MP or don't use AI of this factions, game is fully stable and you can play it for hours.

I know about WotR and not working saves.
Thanks for comment.

awesome mod man really^^. I have some suggestions for you:

Give more skeleton type of units to angmar ( Undead warriors are my favourite at your mod right now^^ ),like skeleton shield+spear units and more dark powers+sorcerers^^.

Please give janissary rifle units to rhun faction too please^^.

I know that you don2t like lotr and hobbit concepts but If it is possible would you add " minas morgul, dol guldur,baraddur and gundabad " concepts to mordor faction too plz ? because we love your own way of creation and adaptation of the concepts at your mod, thank you.

Comparing to rhun and angmar, mordor needs much cooler units and concepts man really^^.

Will you add Sauron to your mod too ?

A few bugs : the units cannot go on the walls ( the city/castle walls ) most of times and the cannons on the walls don't fire against enemies all the time too :(

Good factions AI(s) play better than evil factions AI(s) :D

Your mod is very cool man, thank you for developing your mod :-).

i played a match recently, were it was a 3v3 (good v evil) and i was the Angmar of our team, with Rhun and Mordor as allies. I did almost nothing the entire game ond only fended off Arnor when he tried to foolishly attack me, while my teammates just took a parade through Gondor and Mithlond, who got annihilated. In the end, I disagree with your statement of the Good AI being better than Evil AI
