Is it possible to fix the WoTR mode? I really like it and it's a shame it's buggy.

I've been playing mordor quite a lot in this mod and I love it.
Some things need to be balanced tho. Here is my opinion:

Regarding spellbook:
1) Cracks of Doom should slightly slow units caught
2) Call the Horde is wayyy too overpowered
3) Dungeons of Dol Guldur: Castellans should deal more damage to heroes/single units OR more splash damage to weaker units, right now he does none successfuly. Spawns of Ungoliant should heavy trample.

Now mordor units, buildings and researches:

1) All Mollok spells should drop 1 level requirement, he takes wayy too long to reach his abilities.
2) Terror of Cirith upgrade should cost more than 500 (maybe 750? 800?)
3) Drummer Trolls should be more expensive (more 50 gold? 75?)
4) Easterling encampment is an extremelly squishy building (1800 hp, compared to orc barracks which is 3000 hp). A buff on It's hp would be welcome.
5) Easterling Kataphranks seem weak all around. A slight buff on offense stats (not HP), with an additional increase on their cost, would be nice.

some bugs I've found:
1) Uniting Orc Archers with Black Uruk makes the banner carrier become independant and buggy
2) Can't unite Morgul Orcs with other Units
3) Gothmog's Master of Siege spell active sometimes bugs out, and instead of hitting the target location it hits gothmog himself
4) Shelobs' poisoned stinger doesn't work on some units effectively.

Thank you for this amazing mod!!

Hello there, I love this mod because it fixes a water texture in my game using the mod, but when I use the normal game, the water still looks green, could you help me with this? this is noticeable specially in the Fords of Isen 2 map, those maps with blue and clear water. Here I posted it on Revora with pictures so you can see better.
Forums.revora.net

Is there any file in the mod that I can copy to my original game installation that fixes these water textures?. Thank you so much in advice!. My graphics card is AMD Radeon R7240

Hi there AOTR team..

Im having problems with the mod at the moment...I've installed the latest version of the patch with the mod, but after 3m:30-3m:45s into the game, my base gets destroyed with my defeat. Is there something I'm missing in the files? Please let me know

Thanks in advance.

Love the game by the way, wish to play it further especially with the future updates

Make sure BFME2 is on 1.06. Or read the Installation Guide.

Disable Edain, put BFME2 on 1.06, and put RotWK on 2.02, then run AotR.

Could you get a patch translated into Spanish?
It would be a problem without there being a translation for those who only speak Spanish and not English. please get a translated patch.

This is an amazing mod for sure.

Some of my opinions/expectations, isn't a criticism, is in a constructive way, guys:

1. I really whish that someone makes the full spanish patch or i would try to do if i knew how to find/open the texts to translate them.

2. I already tested all the factions & i found the buildings what works as towers for each factions are extremely weak, i mean the HP building, the attack power & attack speed are fine, but it should be considered some buff for the HP or to allow 2 units again, instead of one, it would solve the issue. You actually can't consider the towers a deffensive building, cause they aren't able to protect anything. In Age of Empires you can put in the towers 15 archers; in BFME 2, one unit are 10 soldiers, so, 15, would be practically 2 units.

3. I think that the units what supposedly sould to have a high vision rank & long range attack, like the ents, catapults, mangonels, giants, etc, need a proper buff about that to feel that they're a siege machines, also, the Wyrms/Dragons of the Misty Mountains have zero vision rank, cause they don't see the enemies until they're in their faces.

4. I don't know if gollum is bugged, was removed or has a renewed AI, cause i didn't find him in any map, i only listened in-game one time, after have played a lot of times & when i was to look for him, there wasn't anything, so, i though that the game was mocking me xD. Must I assume that now is really difficult to find him? If i must, good job it suits perfect for the lore.

PS: Seriously, keep working, this a masterpiece. Anxiously waiting for Mirkwood.

They should add back to legolas, I do not see it anywhere, I thought it was the original game, but I think it's the mod who took it.
add some new units to it; as different Ents and the way they move (I mean to walk slow X3), to the Sylvan elves if you can, and other units more. I only think I do not know if it's really going to be like that.

I have this problem where all textures are pink squares. I followed the instructions to the dot, bfme2 is patched to 1.06 and Rotwk is patched first to 2.01, then to 2.02. Tried doing clean reuninstall of base games, then did the same to the mod itself. Nothing works. Edain is not currently installed.
Edit: Nvm I got it working after reinstalling everything for a second time.
