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.

It has been more than 3 years since 2.08c, but now finally 3.0 has been released. WIth 16 custom settlements, half a dozen historical battles, many new units and tons of gameplay changes we release the final version of Lord of the Rings - Total War.

LATEST CHANGES- New custom cities: including generic settlements, walls specific for each culture, models of buildings for each different city level, and unique models for 16 of the best known cities.

- New battlemap enviroments: including terrain generator, ground textures, trees, grass, light conditions.
Based on RS2 impressive work, but adjusted to LOTRTW with new unique climates and terrains.


- New units: including Ents, retextured uruks and haradrims, enhanced projectile models, and more than 10 additional units.

- Improved campaign map: terrain textures, regional borders, new climatic map, relocation of cities and obstacles to enhance AI behavior, and added some new regions.

- Rebalanced campaign: readjusted the effect of most buildings, the population growth and trade system, the recruitment trees, and the areas to recruit special units.

- Rebalanced unit stats for Multiplayer games, after all these years testing them in online battles.
Readjusted also the results of autoresolve battles in campaign.
- Fixed several bugs from previous versions.

=================================================

NSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS



1) You need LOTR-TW Open Beta v2.0 already installed (Mod for Alexander TW, expansion of Rome TW).
2) Install "LOTRTW_v2.0b_OB" in the main RTW folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
You do not need to follow the other instructions included in this 2.0 version (shortcut, video intro, etc), the patch 3.0 will do it automatically.
3) Install this patch "LOTRTW_PATCH_v2.0_to_v3.0.exe" in the same folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
It will copy one file into main Data folder, but it will not overwrite any original file.
4) A shortcut with the name "Lord of The Rings - Total War" will be created in your Desktop, to launch the mod.

You may also use the file "lotr-tw launcher.bat" placed in the main RTW folder. Or to create your own shortcut.

I downloaded this (RTW: Alexander) via steam, followed installation instructions for the mod, but the new shortcut claims it cant find Steam now. (The original game works.)
Suggestions?

if you add a second shortcut for alexander into the actual steam library with the "Add non-steam game" option, and set the target as the same as the desktop shortcut for the mod (i.e. adding the "MODPATH" or whatever is in there) it should work... ive had the same issue when playing Norman Invasion for BI

This error appears when files are not correctly installed.
Verify that you install the v3.0 in the same folder where you have AlexanderTW and lotrtw v2.0.

if you don´t want to use steam. look in gwarez.cc there are many games to download for FREE, and rome alexander too. maybe you have problems because all good hosters disappeared and only worse one are left. but with a premium account(not free :-( ) or enough time spent on downloading you can get it there.

also for only few dollars you can buy rome total war and/or alexander in amazone or any other market in the internet, WITHOUT steam. i bought rome total war 5 years ago for 15 euro in a lokal market, but alexander i later downloaded from gwarez.

Started a Gondor Campaign and successfully defended Osgiliath and sent an Army towards Minas Morgul. I was attacked by the Witch King with an Army and he is far too powerful now! I killed all of his Army, unloaded every arrow (flaming) from 5 squats of Gondor Archers and Faramir and they didn't kill him. I sent every troop to attack him and he killed almost every troop, A full Army!! At the end a squad of Fountain Guards took him out, but this needs balancing big time, having one General who can take out a whole army is just stupid.

Try this

1) CTD at the start of a new campaign, just when the campaign map appears. Caused by a corrupted "advice" file.
It is fixed by removing these two files:
...\alexander\lotrtw\data\world\maps\ campaign\Alexander\map.rwm
...\alexander\lotrtw\ preferences\advice
(don't worry, the game will generate a new one)

Try reinstalling?

You gotta install 2.0 and then 3.0 at your "C:\RTW", and in that folder there must have been previously installed Alexander - Total War.

If it doenst works even after reinstalling, please start a topic in Twcenter.net(LotRTW)-(ALX) this forum, you will get help way faster.
