The Wars of Arda is a (very) large expansion mod for the EA Games title "The Lord of the Rings: The Rise of the Witchking". We will first be heavily reworking the existing factions (adding Rohan and Harad and merging the Goblins into Isengard) and implementing a "minifaction" system where you begin a skirmish map with a "Core Faction" which contains a variety of units and heroes, and you purchase "Mini Factions" as the match prgresses, giving you access to new units and heroes. The Mod will also be implementing several "Eras" into the mod. This will NOT be an Empire Earth style system where you upgrade from one era to another, but a system where each era is a seperate set of skirmish factions and campaign missions (however all factions will be able to play against each other). The eras of the mod will be as follows. The War of the Jewels The Last Alliance The Rise of the Witchking The Wainriders Invasion The Quest of Erebor The War of the...

Help...Wars of Arda is not compatible with the mod RJ-RotWK. When I install Wars of Arda, it glitches up the other mod and will not let it run.

I think that there is something wrong with the first download part. It goes straight to 80% and then stops and goes non-responsive. Can you please add on a manual installation and readme? I don't trust these installers.

scratch that, I got this "working"... Well, now I have purple icons for half my stuff and everything is invisible but builders and some buildings, the nations of (I went in and used buildings/heroes to tell me what they were) Rohan and Harad are called Missing.INI or something of that sort. Please make a manual installer and readme. I will be greatful, as I find the basic ideas of this mod very good and, based on the screenshots, this is what I want but it will not work. It ruined my game. I'll leave it at that.

There is NOTHING wrong with the mod (well its riddled with bugs I know, but install issues arent one of them), there have been several hundred downloads, including by the mod team, testers and various related people. If you cant get it to work, you haven't followed the instructions. Its as simple as that.

A quick point regarding the potential installation problems

1 - if you have missing text and graphics this means you have the game in a non standard path, and you have not followed the instructions in the readme, regarding how to set up the shortcut (go to the mods main site, register there and the various members of the team will be happy to assist with installation issues).

2 - The mod cannot "ruin your game" this is not possible. There are a full set of uninstallers installed along with the mod. Run these and they will remove EVERYTHING that the mod installed. There will be no changes remaining. Even if youv'e lost the uninstallers you can still manually delete the files from the install directory.

the mod works fine for me and i remember the first time i downloaded woa it had the same problem as cjh37 with the purble units and invisibles but then i changed files and it worked fine everything worked perfectly. There is only one problem i could fine with it and that was that some of the elven units didnt have damage like the gondolin avengers yet sill died and i hope there will be a patch that fixes that, otherwise great job i love it!

You have to wait for the installer to finish. It takes a while, but don't close it when it goes no-responding, just wait.
