getting really annoyed now, when ever i click on erebor on custom battle the game just shuts down and when i click start campaign after choosing who i want to be it goes straight back to the main menu, any help please?
Double Check to make sure you have the new one. (See below. The new one is a little larger than the older one) If there is any doubt redownload it. If you're still experiencing problems with Erebor post the details along with a copy of your save game in the Official 3.2 Bug Report Thread.
I didn't notice the general was a hobbit until after I sieged a town and got decimated because I had no cavalry... Hobbits are SLOW!
I gave them autonomy and that meant not being able to recruit or build there at all. So far all I got is a tribute of unknown amount and a free instant dirt road in Amon Sul. Unfortunately they did not rush build the paved roads too. I'm seriously considering taking back the Shire and teaching those little lazy buggers that they belong to the KING... well as soon as he returns. In the meantime, Gandalf is helping Annuminas grow, Aragorn Bree, and the rest are out taking settlements. Those rebel stacks here and there are really dangerous as I might lack a good army to deal with them.
The one in the first post is the correct one. Here is the link:
If you are long into the campaign, try to finish it before installing the new patch. The changes are good, but not strictly necessary.
Oh, and you COULD make a save game backup, try the patch, if it doesn't work reinstall 3.1 and load the old save file again.
