The Last Days of the Third Age — a total conversion of Mount and Blade 1.011 and Warband into J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth.
Nice, but is weird seeing the same stuff you did and uploaded in other people's screens in the other part of the globe. Seriously, it makes me feel uneasy and nervous.
Have you not watched any let's plays of SWC? :D
Not many, and my work in there is rarely as visible as in here. :)
Moddb profile style, downloads, file structure, iron launcher, the port...
Ugh, feel the pressure, I only see mistakes.
I should have deleted a lot of unused textures and stuff with the new standalone 7z, what a loss opportunity. The profile background has a harsh transition on both sides... And the manual should have been a bit more specific in the installation part, as it was made before doing the patch proper.
Maybe I should have waited to fix the crashes before doing an early release, who knows, there's a lot of stuff that makes me dizzy.
Dude, chill. :D Everything's fine.
What does copying the dinput8 file do?
It's a loader serving the game all the files it needs in the exact order it needs them. You don't have to activate it or anything, it works automatically when you start the game.
The new version of Iron Launcher, it's mainly for M&B 1.011, corrects limitations of the engine allowing total modularity so you don't have to copy files. It allows you to use TLD in M&B 1.011 coexisting like a normal mod. Works like a plugin, fixing engine logic.
In Warband it just plays the TLD intro video. At least, for the moment.
(By the way, I made it open source, if you are wary of third party DLL files: Bitbucket.org)
I downloaded for mount and blade one a small mod that takes almost any textures that are high quality and that makes people instead not crash, for the proof i checked it and putted everything off limits, like using battle size changer and make battles gigantic. It never crashes it just staggers a lot. Now sadly the small mod that makes the mod easier to play and not let it %R;ASH%% is not for warband so basicly I AM DOOMED!
Couldn't load "Textures\tld_rogress_bar.dds"
Unable to open file: Modules\TLD\Resource\meshes_face_gen.brf
Can anyone help me out with this?
same with me
Everytime i run the game, it crashed at the loading screen, and it comes a error message about directx runtime error
That doesn't tell me anything minimally useful to help you.
You could have tried with a more generic:
"Hey, I crashed somehow, help me!"
The result would be the same. And I don't get payed for doing this.
Is there a download that does not require winrar for this. i had already used my trial period and dont have the money to renew the winrar program. i really enjoy the lotr settning and have the third age for total war medeval 2.
I don't use WinRAR, I use 7-zip.org , which is open source, free and has better compression ratio. In fact, the 7z format used to pack the releases has been compressed with the latest version of 7zip. WinRAR just happens to open 7z files.
Peazip is a decent alternative. Just watch out where you download it from. Malware re-packers of open source software are all over the place.
sweet, thanks now for some dling.
i am soo close i can taste it. now i have this problem coming up during load up screen something about. RGL error get_shader failed for: windy_flora.
can someone help me try to fix this problem. the screen loads up with the writting kinda missing parts it gets to the end and they the machine dings and thats whats behind the m&B window. i tried following the instructions but something seems to eluding me.oh and i am using M&B and it says its the newest update on it.
ok ok i am reading the manual and eyes are gettings crossed. sigh. lol must get tired of saying this to people. but if i get everything up and going good i'll let ya know. oh and i got 7z seems to work unzipping pretty good.
ok i have it up and running. been playing for 2 hours then it booted me off. lol and i didnt save crap.
May i ask how you fixed the windy thing because im getting very angry now
When I download those two patches they become TLD_3.37z files not folders which appear in your video, and i extract them to the proper place they are named TLD_3.3 and TLD_3.3_wbcompat.1, two separate files in modules file not one TLD file like it appears on your video, i do copy the dinput8.dll to the mane warband file just fine though. How come yours extract completely different from mine?
Then the TLD folders will be in each one of these folders.
It's pretty easy, you just have to understand that every mod is a folder under /Modules, but, for TLD you also need to overwrite the files in that folder with a patch for it to work fine.

YEESS FINALLY!! <3<3<3
wish mods where a easier to well mod lol.
Thankkk youuu guyss forr making this reallly awesome and epic mod!! I appreciate the video tutorial for the installation process! :D!!
I did watch the vid everything did work, even the intro but then there is always the "RGL WARNING" could not load 'load_menu_back_a' and then when I click on ok the game starts with the loadingscreen of Native and when the loadingscreen is fully loaded it crashes and I get a lot of others warnings: 'hlsl_data_handles(5)' and a lot of other numbers. Please help because I would really like it when I could play the mod.
Thx for responding soon.
Having the same problem try no blood effect and diret 7 other than direct 9
Try it with the version 1.158. It worked for me!
the problem with the download is fixed but now there is another problem. Every time when I attack a party with a number that is larger than 100 the game crashes. Any ideas to fix this? thx for responding
is there a fix to the 'load_menu_back_a' and 'hlsl_data_handles(*)' errors? i'm playing m&b warband ver. 1.143 and did everything according to the video above. any help would be appreciated
Yup I got this too
the Fix Is simple delete the TDL Mod From Your mod folder in warband reinstall it with out The patch and after that Install the Patch in the Modules Folder NOT THE TDL it self
Hi, does ANYONE have a solution to the windy_flora error. I somehow got past the "load_menu_back_a" and the "data_handles" errors. The game loads normally with TLD in the top-left corner but then the game crashes and I have the "get_shader failed for: windy_flora". Again, any solution to this?
Strange... I forgot to paste the dinput8.dll file and I didn't have problems with the "load_menu_back_a" error. Now, that I've pasted the dll file I got the error once again.
HI can anyone Help me my games launcher works fine and when I start the game the Intro works but after it's over I get a RGL warning could not load "load_menu_back_a" and after that I get another RGL error "Failed to assemble shader specular_shader_man from file" any Fix would Be Graet Thanks
I have Warband V 1.158
same thing here man
followed the files everything, when i do what you do for puting the patch in, i get this error.
! C:\Users\Owner\Downloads\TLD_3.3_wbcompat.1.7z: Unknown method in TLD\postfx.txt
! C:\Users\Owner\Downloads\TLD_3.3_wbcompat.1.7z: Unknown method in TLD\postFX.fx
! C:\Users\Owner\Downloads\TLD_3.3_wbcompat.1.7z: Error - operation failed
Its that postfx, it does the exact same thing to both mount and blade games when copying files to the module TDL, i tested running game and crashes after vanilla intro video.
So i have no idea what that is and yes i am using winRAR.
Why is no one telling us how to fix the "load_menu_back_a" error?
Seriously, no solution anywhere.
how long has it been? ....they're being idoits
the instructions are pretty misleading as of the latest installation guide here Tldmod.github.io
it took me a while to figure it out, but it turns out that you both need the first warband compatibility patch, and the latest nightly patch to play the latest version
the instructions makes it seem that the latest nightly patch is enough, but this is not the case, as it seems that it misses something that the first comatibility patch has
1. Get TLD 3.3 for WB
2. Get both the first WB compatibility patch named TLD_3.3_wbcompat.7z AND the latest nightly patch for WB
3. Install them in order
Gyazo.com this happens everytime when im trying to move the TLD folder to Modules section can someone help me?
The infamous "load_menu_back_a"
But after i click ok, the game shows the following RGL error:
"get_shader failed for: render_to_depth_biased_shader"
Many people are desperate to play it OP, including me :\
