My game crashes in the "good" campaign when I try to load the "Lothlorien" battle.

I have x64 windows 10. Running basically state of the art hardware, my PC can play anything including half life-Alyx.

This is the error message I get:

ReplaceModule ModuleTag_02 was not found for MordorGoblinSwordsman, cannot continue.

Error parsing field 'ReplaceModule' in block 'Object' in file 'maps/MAP GOOD Lothlorien\map.ini', line 100.

Because of the severity of this error the game will now exit.

Please help! I had no issues with "Mines of Moria" or the first "Rohan" battle (I fought in Rohan).

There may be some typos but I took a screen shot of the actual error in case anybody wants it emailed to them.

UPDATE: I played the game without any mods, and the Lothlorien level ran normally.

It is clearly stated in the 0.975 news article that campaigns are NOT supported. Please read the news articles in the future.

Can this mod be run with the HD edition?

Would you recommend this mod or the HD edition?

This mod is not fully compatible with HD Edition mod, because some HD textures from HD Edition are overwritten by this mod.

Your second question is a bad one. This mod is a total overhaul mod and HD Edition is a purely cosmetic mod. Their goals are completely different and cannot be compared.

Therefore, which mod you choose to play depends entirely on what you want. If you want only nice looking textures, then play HD Edition, but if you want new factions, units, spells etc, then play this mod.

Howdy MrRohirim, My DUDE!! I have been playing this mod from day 1 and I just want to say it is fantastic!I love that even though this game is an oldie there are still people making this game more amazing. Every new update brings the mod more and more alive. I keep having brain farts just imagining the last few factions being added in and the process of building and testing the AI comes into play!! Take your time, no masterpiece is ever rushed. Take care and give us all the greatest BRAINFARTS!

Installation program doesnt support 32-bit versions of Windows as they are outdated. That being said, I will upload a no-installer version of the mod tomorrow. Manual installation guide will be included as well.

I love the custom elven faction! There a few bugs, but nothing that ruined it for me. The invisible barracks was a little annoying though. I just wish the elves would've maybe had some cavalry, and I wish the Rivindell and lorien barracks would've been separate. Overall a good mod and I look forward to later versions! Also I don't mean to be annoying, but if you've seen the new hobbit movie than using the armor that elrond and his riders are wearing for the upgraded elven warriors armor would be…
