ive installed the Mod, but my game keeps crashing with this message: "TDH_DWARVES_GUARDHOUSE_BUILDCOS"
I did revert the game to 1.03 and it still wont load

Make sure no other mods have changed the BME game directory. You could try deleting the mod and then uninstalling BME. Check all the BME files have been removed. Then reinstall BME, patch it and then install the mod.

I'm sorry to say mate, but both campaigns dont seem to work properly. All units suddenly die after a few minutes of playing. Is this intended or not? Is there a time limit? It seems like the enemy AI summons an earthquake-like power everywhere on the map. I have 1.03 installed, no other mods so I'm pretty sure this is an issue of this single mod. Please fix this problem.
Also, is this mod still being updated? I see this is version 1.6, but it seems to be the first since I see no past of other versions. No mention of it on other sides as well.
I also wonder how far the good (and evil) campaign are altered, since from a few minutes of gameplay only the heroes seem to have changed powers.

Too bad! Seems to be a decent mod! I hope the campaigns are altered like in the Elven Alliance mod!

Units suddenly dying suggest there might be a problem with the base game. You could try deleting the mod and then uninstalling BME. Check all the BME files have been removed. Then reinstall BME, patch it and then install the mod. I have tested both campaigns and they do work.

The mod will be updated in future with new skirmish maps/heroes. The campaigns are quite different (especially the evil campaign) with some brand new maps for both good and evil campaigns.

In the c: drive you need to create a FOLDER called mods
Inside this mods folder you need to create another folder called ToA1_6

Then unpack the contents of the downloaded .rar file to the folder ToA1_6

I will check the Elf Upgrade FX. We plan on releasing new maps with new units on them (new heroes)

Nice to hear that! You already included a lot of amazing maps. Two are even from me (SnoopyZero), even if I never finished Osgiliath tbh haha. Nevertheless I'm excited to play on more new maps, I don't even find that much more than you've already included. But there are still some nice ones out there like "Lothlorien Again" (https://www.moddb.com/games/battle-for-middle-earth/addons/lothlorien-again), "Amon Hen Again" (https://www.moddb.com/games/battle-for-middle-earth/addons/amon-hen-again) and "Fangorn Again" (https://www.moddb.com/games/battle-for-middle-earth/addons/fangorn-forest-again) (three mission maps from Fudge). Also Battle in Moria 2p (https://www.moddb.com/games/battle-for-middle-earth/addons/battle-in-moria-1-0) from Melkor1283 is nice for Dwarf mods, as well as some fortress maps by High Elven Lord.

I would also love to see some human dunlending hero for isengard^^
