Hello,
First of all, you managed to make a very good game-mode and thank you for your effort!
Secondly, I installed the game with the Patches on the Revora site, respectively 1.02, 1.03, 1.05 (copy paste in BFME Folder) and 1.06 (not T3A Online) and please tell me if it is good what i installed!
Thirdly, Boromir, Legolas and the bonuses from Moria have no color, they are white, without facial shapes without details ... and I don't know why ...

What did I do wrong and what can I do?

I'm still using Win Xp ... if it matters!

Thank you very much for your understanding and help!

As long as you installed the game and the patches in English, you did everything correctly.

What do you mean by "bonuses from Moria"?

That issue might be related to your graphics settings. Try setting them to high (if your PC can handle it) and see if the problem is solved.

Since the game is quite old, I work on it using max settings so if any visual bugs are happening on lower settings I wouldn't know about them unless someone finds and reports them.

I was aslo getting that error a time ago. Try with installer of mod or use a "clean" reinstall of game. It was solved my problem ;)

And as I know you don't need to install patch 1.02 before patch 1.03. You need to isntall patch 1.03 - 1.05 and 1.06 .

I reinstalled the game, the one from the Revora site, I installed the 1.03, 1.05 and 1.06 patch (also from Revora) and ... Boromir and Legolas are still white ... I don't know what else to do with them!

I really don't know the cause of this. One thing you could try is to install BFME HD Edition mod. It is compatible with this mod so you wont have problems with it.

You can download it here:
Moddb.com

Edit:
HD Edition IS NOT compatible with this mod. To fix this or similar graphical issues do the following steps:

1) Set your graphics setting to Very High
2) Set them to Custom
3) Uncheck "Dynamic LOD"

Hello,
I restarted the game, and noticed that in Lothlorien (where I am now) the Ground Command does not work properly for Heroes ... I command them to stand guard over the elven archers and they (Gandalf, Aragon, Gimli etc) leave and fix the middle of the bridge, whatever I do! What's worse is that they don't even react correctly, receiving blows without hitting them too, so that in a short time they die ...
What can be done?

Thanks for your understanding and help!

I have done some testing and from what I saw, heroes do stand idle occasionally in Lothlorien. However, I couldn't find the cause for this as the map-specific code doesn't make any changes to unit reactions or guard radius.

My guess is that this bug may be related to map pathing. What you could do to minimize the issues caused by it, is to assign heroes to control groups (select them and the do ctrl+1 for melee heroes, ctrl+2 for ranged etc). That way you can easily micromanage them so they don't stand idle.

Thank you very much for the explanations and help!
There are other commands with the keys, and if so, where can I find them?

I really like the game-mode made by you, as I said I started it a second time! :)
Do you make any more changes to this game? I am especially interested in the Campaign Game! :)

Hi, first thanks for the great mod.
It looks like I have issue with spells "rain of fire" and "sorcery of orthank" in multiplayer game.
I want to play via LAN with my brother as good against evil, and when ai used one of these spells game crashed. We do some experiments and looks like when we play as evil and have these spells we cant use it in multiplayer game. I think it is beacause we should "look" exactly at the same point at map to spell works corectlly, but it is hard in multiplayer.
In fact in singleplayer game when ai use one of them it still work as "point of view" so we can still just looks at enemy army, and they hits themself.

Actually we just dont play against Mordor and Isengard ai to avoid crashes, but if you planned release final version, you can remember to check it.

It will be nice to be able to play against all faction without crashes :)

Thanks for reporting this. Those two spells will sadly have to be removed and replaced with something else. The game engine is a limiting factor as the underlying mechanism for those spells is hardcoded and can't be edited.
