Can you please help me with this one problem with my diplomacy in DAC 2.2. You see, all the factions start with no allies or enemies, just like in normal medieval 2 total war. At first i thought that that is how it is supposed to be, but in your faction videos the factions have already some diplomatic relations. But that is not the worst bit. The worst is that in campaign the factions act just like in medieval 2, meaning, they can ally or go to war with anyone. Gondor ally with Mordor, Isengard ally with Dunedain and Imladris. And so on. This is obviously not a game breaking bug, but it is still kinda annoying. Hope you or anyone reading this can help me.

And also, just curious...I have heard there is such a thing as Reforged Kingdom...i just wanna know what are the requirements for that?

Tnx for your time, hope to hear from you soon. And sorry for any spelling mistakes.

Is there a fix for the "unspecified Error... blablabla ... exit" caused by SAURON during or before battle? I tried everything ranging from deleting map.rwm to deactivating daylight-savig.

DaC 2.2 (And ALL prior versions)


Game starts crashing heavily form turnnumber 200+. Most common "fixes" have been applied, ranging from deleting map.rwm over disabling UAC or running as admin. I guess It might be due to RAM-problems during end-turn and during turn?

You must run the LAA patch or the game will run out of RAM in the late game and crash frequently. This step is listed in all the installation guides.

Sauron often crashes the game. We have plans to fix him in future finally but it is a well documented bug from TATW that has been passed on to us. I would recommend simply not using him for now.

A pitty, I love that monster of a general. By the way, you should give mordor a chance on your channel, he might be more resistant of your tendency to burn costom generals :D

I did install the LAA- Patch, fixed it by denying 2 factions sieges battles in the crashing end-turn-phase.

PS: Ar-Ardunaim, Harad and Mordor frequently brake alliances an declare war on each other in my games. War and truces alternate every 4-5 turns. (Just wante to throw that in here^^)

Hello i think i found a little bug playing as Imladris. The faction heir carry the Gilgalad crown and its suposed to make the character the faction heir when carried. I gave it to Glorfindel but he didnt became my heir, i think because he is just a general and not a family member. Now i cant give it back to another characters, before this i could give it to another characters but seens like Glorfindel bugged the crown.

Edit: Im playing the 2.2 version.

Having an issue of Crashing to desktop with the needs to exit message. Always happens as I finish a battle and its about to reenter the campaign map.

Has occurred on loading into faction such as Dwarves of Kazad Dum but other than that northern Dunedein always crash too (at battle end and rarely in campaign map)... As it stands game is unplayable. Have reinstalled several times and exact same issue.

Any support appreciated!

Going to try ininstall of DaC with run as admin as realised didn't on most recent install.

Tried this and got a crash on end of turn 1.

When I build leather tanners that say plus leather armor my units are not given armor upgrades upon recruitment is this a bug or a game mechanic I am not understanding.

Feb 13 2019 Anchor

I am having the same issue as BlackBow22, although mine seems to crash after the first turn. The game closes and I end up back at the desktop giving me a " unspecified error" I have done all the steps to install the game as directed by you.

This happens on Third Age and DaC.

Playing V3. Playing as Northern Dunedain. Getting a crash during end turn, turn 78, Bree is moving an army out of Michel Delving. Immediately crashes the game every time. Bree is not AI sieging any settlement. Can't get any console commands to work on the settlement. Isn't a Large Address Aware issue. Still crashes. Tried moving armies around and in and out of settlements, saving, and then end turning, still crashes.

Please help.

i am getting the 0xc0000142 error while trying to launch the mod
any solution?

Jun 22 2019 Anchor

I have a current problem with my Nothern Dunedain campagin. At the beginning of the next turn, the mouse cursor remains in the 'ring' animation that occurs whenever something is loading and continously stays like that. I can't select anything however, hot keys work in opening the faction tab and summaries. If i double right click i can also open up details of characters, but i can't select armies, move my characters or end my turn. Please help.

Hi everybody.

DaQ V3 is absolutly incredible, but I have a problem. When I finish the turn, sometimes, the game crush with the famous unespified error. This error appears in all campaigns, every five turns, more or less. Thanks for any help.
