LOTR-TW is a Total Conversion for Alexander TW based on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, focused to recreate the epic battles seen in the movies. It has a complete Middle Earth map, fully customised cities like Minas Tirith and Helm's Deep on Battle and Campaign map, a set of Historical Battles where you can play all the major and minor battles that take place in the trilogy, and a quest line for the Free-People's campaign where, if the player succeeds, will take the Ring-Bearer from Hobbiton to the wasteland of Mordor in an attempt to save the world from its doom.

Description

This is the 2.08c (NOW OBSOLETE) Patch for Lord of the Rings Total War, patch 2.08c, instructions are on the description. Mod team : Wlesmana and Bardo


YOU DO NOT NEED THIS, PLEASE INSTALL 2.0 AND THEN THE CURRENT VERSION, 3.0, ON YOUR ROME - TOTAL WAR FOLDER
(YOU HAVE TO HAVE ALEXANDER - TOTAL WAR INSTALLED IN THE SAME FOLDER BEFORE INSTALLING THE MOD)

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR PATCH 2.08:


1. You need LOTR-TW Open Beta v2.0 installed (Mod for Alexander TW, expansion of Rome TW).

2. Extract this patch over the main RTW folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
It will copy some files into main Data folder, but it will not overwrite any vanilla file.

3. A shortcut with the name "Lord of The Rings - Total War" will be created in your Desktop, to launch the mod.

LAUNCHING THE SCRIPTS:


The campaign of lotr-tw 2.0 uses a script file that is automatically executed when the campaign starts and it runs all the time in the background. To play the campaign properly, the script should be relaunched every time you load a savegame, just by clicking the advisor portrait when it pop ups.

To launch the script:
- If you started the campaign (not from a saved game), then it's automatically loaded up.
- If you just loaded a savegame:
CLICK ANY BUTTON or select anyone of your settlement or officer, and then CLICK ON THE ADVISOR WHEN IT POPS UP.

If you want to start a new campaign, better exit the game first, because the scripts of the old campaign could prevent the scripts of the new one from being launched.
Also, try to choose the lower ADVICE LEVEL (NO ADVICES) when you start a new campaign because the game's advices could mask some script messages.

To verify that scripts are working properly, you can check there is no winter season. If you see snowy terrain every 2 turns, then the scripts are not active. Try reloading the savegame again and this time click the advisor when it appears.
If you have played some turns with scripts inactive, there should not be major problems, but you would have alter the gameplay balance, and some scripts could not work properly when you reactivate them.

RECOMENDED SETTINGS FOR LOW PCs:

Anti-aliasing = OFF
Terrain = HIGH (MEDIUM looks much worse and I don't notice much performance differences)
Buildings = LOW
Grass = LOW (or OFF)
Unit size = SMALL (up to LARGE)
Unit detail = HIGH (No less than LOW)
Effects = LOW
Vegetation = MEDIUM

Battle Shadows = OFF
Smoke/Dust = ON (The battles do not look the same without it)
Reflections/Glints = OFF
Desynchronise = OFF
Unit Shaders = ON (very important, since it could reduce performance if dissable

So basically you gotta install the patch in your Rome Total War folder (you need Alexander Total war installed on the same folder, as well the 2.0 version Moddb.com) and then start the shortcut in your desktop

Hello, I am trying to play the game. I downloaded the beta version 2.0 then the patch 2.08. I click on the created short cut and it brings up the main cover art screen. But then it just stays like that. It has nothing to clikc on to choose campaigne or anything. If I hit the enter button it vansihed and takes me to my desk top. What do I need to do to play the game? Thank you.

This Mod seems to be a complete new game not the Rome, awesome units and map it is even better than LOTR:battle for middle earth 2... congratulations wulfburk12, I deeply appreciated the work has been done :), it is one of the best RTW mod...

*I had some problems when I played with noldor elves in War of Ring, High Noldor soldier are unavailable, with the all structures build, only options are spearguards, elven archers, both sentiels and scout cavalry, no chance to beat trolls without general :D

*and on the custom battles sauron and saruman are 4 guys hard to beat 4 instead of 1,as gandalf doesnt have any power :)

Most of the scripts and graphics are near perfect, except castles on battle map which is not really important..

It's so beautiful mod GOOD JOB :)

Is it possible to convert it to Medieval Total War 2 compatible ? or this would require complete new work of scripting and modding?

Wulfburk12 Feb 1 2011, 6:19pm replied:

To get the High Noldor elves units you have to do the Noldor reform, to do it you gotta construct the latest elven forge in the 3 territories around grey havens IF i remember correctly

the 4 saurons cannot be fixed, RTW has a minimun of soldiers per units, on huge you get 4 elephants = then you get 4 saurons, you have to play the unit scale on medium to set it to 1

Making this mod for M2TW wont happen, as the mod is only being worked by two persons, Wlesmana and Bardo, and from what i know it would require to resize all models, and remoddell them so it would look perfect onM2TW, so alot of work, Europa Barbarorum 2 is going out for M2TW, and their team is big and yet it is taking a long time to finnish

and glad you liked!

its impossible on the RTW engine, the lowest number of soldiers in a unit goes for elephants, and there is 4 elephants, you can put single soldiers units in historical battles but thats it

You cant in the RWT engine, because it allows only for a unit to use the main unit model plus the unit captain and the standard bearer i think, so only 3 models IIRC

if the game do not find the chat_filter, it uses to be because you did not install the 2.0 in the main folder, where both RomeTW.exe and RomeTW-ALX.exe are placed.

You have to install both 2.0 and 2.08c to "Rome Total War\" and run the shortcut placed in your desktop, and you must have the Alexander Total War expansion installed on the previously mentioned "Rome Total War\" folder
