Haha, I see. I downloaded the google drive alt. and had the same results. I'm downloading the mega.nz alt. now. I'll edit this comment with whatever results I get. Very excited about this mod!

EDIT: mega.nz file works perfectly.

Just stumbled upon some tantra music that would fit real nice (lost in my 50k+ song list) and also a couple old ambient tracks I made years ago, so I will probably include new sound files with over an hour of new strat map music when I re-upload.

If you think any other tracks should be added just PM me a list and I will check them out. The more the better.

By posting more info, how could I possibly know what you were doing when it crashed?

Many others have it working so there is a decent chance you messed something up if you can't get it to start. Try the "Manual Install" method, be sure to use the file cleaner in your TATW folder first.

I've got that crash everytime I enter a battle, the field will show for a split second with what appear to be blacked out/missing textures then crash to that pop up, campaign works perfectly though.

Could be a compatibility problem with your hardware. Try renaming the; mods\Third_Age_3\data\descr_geography_new.db to something else, or just delete it. That may fix the issue but the grass I added might be removed as well.

If your graphics drivers are out of date they need to be updated. This is an old game but it does use modern graphics.

Are you using vista/8+? Sounds like that could be the cause. If it had anything to do with my files everyone would experience it so it is some kind of conflict.

Just deleted it and it didn't work, I'm going to see if I can update my driver, from the looks of things it looks like the units have the black/missing textures not the terrain
edit my driver is up to date, I might reinstall the mod but make sure I run as admin, could that possibly solve the issue. I'm not going to be able to try for a couple of days though

FIXED

delete descr_geography_new.db and descr_geography_new.text
I also installed as admin which should be recommended anyway but I doubt that's the fix. I couldn't edit my last reply hence the new one.

alreadyded I'd recommend posting a page for bug fixes until you can get a more stable version online.
Can't wait to fully try the mod as I played the campaign and it's already pretty great. Cheers!

That is odd that the text needs to be deleted too, unless you have your game setup to rebuild it.

The descr_geography_new has nothing to do with me, that is a common problem people have with M2TW, even the vanilla M2TW descr_geography_new file. Timestamp issue or something. There is no way for me to improve it since the file contents are not the actual problem (just simple code for simple squares, literally nothing to fix). If the file was the problem everyone would have the same issue, there is an unknown factor that is... well unknown:P. I have Win 7 Ult and have never experienced this.

If you unpacked your game be sure to delete the descr_geography_new files in your vanilla M2TW folder.

AND disable UAC if you haven't already to anyone having trouble installing.

I have Win 7, maybe its my hardware, I'm not sure what else it could be, important thing is that it is now fixed, great mod!

Can you please make a video about installing it, for it doesn't make sense on how to install it?

I don't spend my time on such things, I just release this for testing. If you can't figure out how to install it (copy and paste a data folder) then you are not the kind of person I want giving feedback anyway probably:P.

No offense, you will just have to wait for someone nice to make a video. Also, I never actually installed it so I wouldn't be the best to do this video since I have no personal experience with it or the problems people are having. I already have the files on my PC.

Don't be, it is a good question, and I am sure many here don't know English as well as me. You will just have to wait for someone else to answer it while I try and make the installer better/easier.
