    Thanks for the clarifications and insights.
  2. Sticky: Re: Official 'Third Age 1.0 - 3.2 Question & Answer' Thread

    Some questions aboutTATW 3.2 [A very Great Mod! :thumbsup2]


    This relates to my recent Campaign. I was paying much more attention to traits,retinue, and diplomacy than normal, so I have got a...

    Thanks Morifea.
  4. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    I haven't posted on this campaign for a while. I had some technical problems which Elvenkind helpfully solved.

    Anyway, I reached my victory conditions. I've had some tremendous battles on the...

    Yes, the Dark Lord had called an invasion on Barad Dur! Dunno what that was about (no spies near) but suggests that Sauron's up the Orc's latrine without a paddle.

    I've copied the code you...

    Ahhh! We seem to be moving along again, without crashing, thanks to the magic of Elevenkind. +1 rep!
  7. Sticky: Re: -- Before posting: How to fix stability, Vista, Win 7 issues (incl. fatal graphics errors) and broken savegames --

    Thanks for your help. I will give it a go. In any case: "Those who are about to die salute you!"

    HI Elvenkind,

    I have uploaded this to a dropbox here:

    regards

    Hi Elvenkind,

    Thank you for your kind offer.


    I tried to upload and attach the last manual Eriador save but it said "Invalid file" so that seems to be a bust.

    Thanks for your help anyway...
  10. Sticky: Re: -- Before posting: How to fix stability, Vista, Win 7 issues (incl. fatal graphics errors) and broken savegames --

    I went back ten turns to the most recent save. This progressed things to T218. It still crashes on Mordor or Harad's move in the turn progression. Bit frustrating.
  11. Sticky: Re: -- Before posting: How to fix stability, Vista, Win 7 issues (incl. fatal graphics errors) and broken savegames --

    Sadly I have reached T217 with Eriador but am now subject to campaign crashes every time I go to the next turn. I've tried the fixes on the first page of this guide and deleted a lot of saves. Any...

    The Battle Unready Dunedain

    I'm sure we can all picture the Battle Ready Dunedain in our minds:

    Dour, stoic, hard-faced men, grim of mien, maybe in hand-me-down armour and notched swords, patched cloaks, not-to-be-messed...
  13. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    Things have taken a turn for the worse. Mordor is starting to bring its strength to bear.

    Basically it's A. The Effin' Trolls; B. The Effin' Troll Catapults. They're the only things I...
  14. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    I haven't updated this game summary for ages. Basically I turtled along defeating Gundabad, then the Misty Mountain Orcs, and sieging out Moria for 10 turns to avoid the Balrog. The OoMM had taken...

  18. Re: Just want to thank the amazing creators of this mod

  19. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    It's now Turn 80 and several things have happened with Eriador: "Well, that's a turn up and no mistake, Mr Frodo" as Sam would say.

    Isengard and Mordor have declared war and the Dark Lord has...
  20. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    Merry Xmas Ngugi,

    I think I am just going to be going on without reforging. The Grey Company - despite their lack of sartorial prominence - are a mincing machine (since the last report they've...
  21. Re: Using your King, or Steward in Battle - my 2p worth

    Just a further bit to add. I played till 2.30 am last night, and was then so hyped I couldn't sleep for 2 hours :whistling. I haven't done that for ages!

    One other thing I noticed, if you have cavalry pursing routers, they shoot as they are whirling round, running them down, so manage some friendly fire. I'd prefer them just to use their swords.

    I feel I have to disagree.

    Artillery difficulties

    Great Mod - love the period.

    Note - bear in mind I got Ollie Cromwell killed on Turn Two. History has perhaps taken a bit of a swerve :-)

    Everything about the game seems good except the...
  28. Re: Teutonic Knights - a few minor but I hope useful points

    I've just been playing Teutonic. Got a victory on T83. I found it quite enjoyable.

  30. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    It's still a "game of two halves" = going either way. I've played some more turns invading North of shikoku. I find the huge casualties your army suffers, even if you win a bit offputting.

  31. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    I haven't attacked the last miyoshi province because of the 32 units there. It's only got a tax revenue of 100+ so it cannot support those troops...

    Instead I've attacked Bizen and Bitchu with...
  32. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    My favourite unit is the sole unit of Matchlock Ashigaru in my forces - they have performed outstandingly in battle, shooting up enemy units, backed up by bowmen and people with pointy sticks to rush...
  33. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    That all sounded like a bit of a whinge! One of the things I like about S1 and S2, is that each faction has the same units (I know some other players don't). It means you cannot relay on some...
  34. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    Basically I don't want to attack the Miyoshi as I am outnumbered 2:1, even though I probably have better quality units.
  35. Re: Having problems getting into the game - any suggestions?

    The game is going a lot better now, though I still have some things I'm not happy about.
