It should reduce by 1 the recruitment turns. For most units it will reduce them from 2 to 1, so it is hard to notice. It has more impact on orc factions that should get 0 recruitment times.
You may try to copy the file /Mods/lotrtw - Fast Recruitment/alexander/lotrtw/data/export_descr_unit.txt manually to /alexander/lotrtw/data/ in case the mod enabler is not working for you.
More info here: Twcenter.net
1 Go "rometw\alexander\lotrtw" copy the 5 or 6 folders (custom, data, preferences, display, replays, saves)
2 Go "Mods" folder in main rometw folder (JSGME mods folder)
3 Make a new folder, name doesn't care, for example "modLOTRTW". Make a new folder inside named "alexander"
4 Paste the folders that you copied in 1st step
5 Run JSGME.exe (The icon with a great G in main rometw folder) and activate the mod "modLOTRTW" (folder that you created) wait a little...
Ready, now you dont need shortcut or .bat when you execute rometw-alx.exe the LOTRTW mod will be lauched
(6) In order to revert to initial state: Run JSGME.exe and disable the mod "modLOTRTW". You may delete the folder "Mods\modLOTRTW" that you created if you do not plan to use it again.
Solo necesitas instalar este ultimo lotrtw pack v3.02.
Si alguna vez instalaste versiones anteriores del mod, sugiero borrar primero el directorio: /alexander/lotrtw/
Y despues reinstalar el mod, para que no quede ningun archivo de instalaciones previas.
Espero que sea eso.
Sorry, I don't know what can be the cause. Try to see if something in the readme can help you: Lotrtw_Readme_v3.02.txt
1) Ejecuta el programa "JSGME (Enable Mods - Translations)"
2) Selecciona la traduccion en la ventana "Available Mods" y pulsa el boton ">" para moverla a la ventana "Activated Mods".
3) Cierra el programa JSGME y lanza el juego.
Thanks for the continued interest of players in this mod. I wasn't expecting it either after so many years :).
There are no plans to create new content. Wlesmana, the original author of the mod, and creator of all unit models, retired long time ago.
I still like to play the mod from time to time, and if I find the way to fix other bugs, I might release another patch, but that's all.
I just uploaded a new all-in-one pack. It should be easier to install this way. You might take a look to the new installation instructions that include steps for steam version. Let me know if you still find problems.
1) Extract the content of the LOTR-TW pack to the main game folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is located.
The Steam version uses to be: "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Rome Total War Alexander\"
2) In your Steam game list, right click on your Rome Total War: Alexander game, click properties, and in the general tab click "Set Launch Options". In the space provided, type in this text:
The effect of armor/weapon upgrades can't be changed that I know. But you can change the cost of each upgrade, as well as other unit stats, by editing the file:
Rome - Total War/alexander/lotrtw/data/export_descr_unit.txt
Units were made by Wlesmana. He allowed to use his work in other mods, as long as you include proper credits:
I do not have steam version, but there is useful info in this topic:
If you have steam version, you need to install it in alexander folder, something like this:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\rome total war alexander
Then, you just need to right click on your alexander game in the steam game list, click properties and in the general tab click 'Set Launch Options'. Type in this text in the space provided:
I'll try to make an all-in-one pack... someday.
Until then, you need to extract in the same folder:
1) LotR: TW 2.0 Open Beta
2) v3.0 Final Patch
3) v3.02 Bugfix patch
You may try to create your own shortcut as explained here:
4. Once installed, right-click and drag your RomeTW-ALX.exe to the desktop and Create Shorcut
5. Right-click on the new short-cut and choose Properties
6. In the "Target" window in properties, ADD this line at the end: -mod:alexander/lotrtw so the line may look like this:
"C:Program Files\Actision\Rome - Total War\RomeTW-ALX.exe" -mod:alexander/lotrtw
That message appears when there are missing files. You need to install lotrtw 2.0 and patch 3.0 in the same folder of alexanderTW expansion.
I never had steam version, but it seems you need to install in alexander folder. Something like this:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\rome total war alexander
I'm sorry to read about this virus alarm. I guess it is caused by a file .exe that we included to be able to play online in gamerange.
It is not needed to play the game, you can delete this folder without problems:
/lotrtw - GameRanger
I always wanted to make an all-in-one pack without that file, and including a better readme. I'll try again if I can.
I hope you were able to install it.
Just in case, for people in same situation: if 2.0 worked for you, then you can use the same shortcut to play 3.0. Just be sure to install both them in the same folder where RomeTW-ALX.exe is placed.
Sorry the late answer. The valar is a modding tool to save the state of scritps upon reloads, just ignore him. One of the effects of the scripts is to make the One Ring to appear randomly near anduin river (in hands of frodo or gollum). If a named character kills him in battle, he can capture the ring.

We did our best to try to minimize the crashes, but it is really hard to create a mod for RTW, and even harder to find and fix possible causes of crashes.
The main known crash in battle is caused by trolls with torches (at night or sunrise), so try to avoid such battles. Another is when reinforcements have no room to be deployed around a sieged city.
There is a modder, CapnDan who made some new campaigns for this mod, and fixed some bugs. It is available here:
He plans to upload the next version to moddb too.
Es díficil sin saber mas información:
Te funciona la expansion AlexanderTW?
Instalaste lotrtw 2.0 y luego parche 3.0?
El directorio de instalación tiene permisos de escritura (en windows)?
Añadiste -mod:alexander/lotrtw a tu acceso directo?
Mandame un privado si aun no te funciona.
Each battle won by Aragorn, he has a chance to obtain Anduril sword.
If Aragorn ends his turn in Dunharrow (playing Rohan) or Erech (playing Gondor), carring Anduril, the advisor will appear allowing the player to recruit this special unit led by the King of the Dead.

The bodyguards of generals regenerate automatically with time. The max size of the unit depends on the personal traits of the general.
Those problems use to be related to file rights in windows.

Hay un error en la traduccion... culpa mia.
Puedes encontrar la solucion aqui: Lotr-tw.net
1) desactivar la traduccion en JSGME.exe
2) Borrar este archivo:
rome... \Mods \lotrtw - Traduccion Esp \alexander \lotrtw \data \text \export_buildings.txt
3) activar la traduccion en JSGME.exe
Los edificios aparecerán en ingles, pero el resto de la tradcucción parece funcionar.
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.
There is some info about Steam and Mac in this topic:
Mirror1 is Gamefront now, I hope it works in china.
Dropbox was down due to high traffic.
You need Rome Total War game with the Alexander Total War exapansion.
Then to install the v2.0 of the mod:
And then to install this patch 2.08. It will create a shortcut in your desktop that allows you to launch the mod.
It is also created a readme with more info about the mod.
Yes, the mod is working and can be installed over steam, you can find instructions here:
We have just release a new patch 2.08 here:
