    Btw. Thnx for reply
    That probably has to do with scripts MOS uses that require units you don't always see in the game. Proximusj' units take up different slots from their 'normal' counterparts, the Osgilliath ferry takes up a slot, etc.

    Well, as Mike said, there are 4 unit slots still not used in MOS, so you should be able to add 4 more units. These scripts should absolutely not be your problem.
    Maybe the name of the unit you want to add, is already in use? Or maybe one of the files you try to edit needs to be edited with Notepad++ instead of regular notepad. Just thinking aloud here.
    Edit: in the previous post, I was just explaining why Broken Crescent probably has more units, not why your attemts don't work

    Hello!

    Playing with the Dunlanders, I have realized that when activating units in the Battle map, the voice files are amiss. This is an usual thing happening to added custom units, and isn't really that important, but I nevertheless wanted to ask if there is an easy way to add generic speech to these units.

    For example:

    When clicking the General's Bodyguard, you hear the voice "General's Bodyguard!"
    Archers: "Archers!"
    etc.

    I have seen that Dale has even custom sound files.

    Is this an easy edit in descr_units ? Or does this involve more complex modding. Help much appreciated.

    My Home is my Castle.

    So, I will try to answer this although I don't use Steam myself for MTW2.
    You are copying the contents of the Third_Age_3 folder, so it stands to reason that they should be pasted/merged to the "Steam" Third_Age_3 folder. I think that is what EK has instructed. If you are afraid to mess up, you can always make a backup of the folder you are going to use.

    EK has not yet updated his guide to include the bugfixers install. Use the 3 in 1 version (easiest), it should be installed to your "Third_Age_3" folder also.
    End with the Cleaner.bat and you should be good to go.

    Thank you kind sir, i┤ts just that it is a tad confusing. Thank you, I will give it a go.
    Do check my AAR "The Proud Blood of Germania"

    And my other AAR: "The Black Serpent"

    I was able to add units when I removed some?!
    I removed Dol Amroth ballista, catapult and trebuchet (Gondor already has those units so I think these are not needed). I will see if I can add 5 more units cos now I should have 5 slots free.
    btw. Game is great with MOS I play on vh and I turned on all "bad things/scripts/mods" so its kinda hard but fun

    Will we be seeing some Hobbit inspired sexy Bearded fellows being added into the game? I assume it wont be long till we get to see units from the Hobbit for the Dwarves, Esgaroth and OOG, i really think orcs of gundabad will make the game very interesting. Will siege units be modified at all for factions like Isenguard and dwarves (Isenguard ballista, Dwarf ballista, Dale windlance,) in the future? I'd like to thank the developers and im aware the mod has stopped for a while because of the lead coders condition, i wish him a quick recovery and I cannot describe my life before this unbelievably gorgeous mod. Well done all of you crafty creative buggers!

    I'm playing MOS 1.6.2. with (among others) Early Invasions script - from what I've read in scripts readme, it should cause Sauron to return on turn 30 - thing is, it's already turn 34 in my campaign and the Dark Lord is nowhere to be seen. Could he be delayed even with script being active?

    It mean that the pope/Sauron appear at turn 30, not the unit, if that's what you wonder.

    If you do mean the pope, which you'll only know playing an evil faction, it may be so that the 12t/y delay the script

    Yes, I meant the pope, not the unit. So unless I'm an evil faction, I don't get any notification of his return? This would explain a lot.

    I don't know why, but I was under impression that his appearance will trigger some warning, along the lines of "Tremble, mortals, and despair - for the Dark Lord has returned!"

    Help please! I asked for help earlier on this thread (page 192) and have not had an answer! I was hoping someone would tell me how to change the Heavy Silvan elves back to their vanilla armour from their silver armour? I know you have taken a lot of your time re-skinning these and they do look awesome, but I have been looking for days trying to change it to vanilla? Can anyone offer any help?

    The re-skinning was done by dIRECTOR who also provided a patch to switch between silver and gold. If you go back one page you can see my answer to your question which may be of use to you.

    No, just as in TATW the good faction's first clue is when an Invasion decend upon you or some fellow faction

    I am playing for the first time MOS with Free Peoples of Eriador, so what guide do you guys recommend me to follow? I am mostly looking for a guide about the RPG missions. For example I was told that Aragorn moved to Bree to find about the trouble stirring in the land. Next I am told that he must go find Gollum to some location I can't remember.

    Any solutions?

    Got another problem, I built the House of Kings and reunited Arnor in my current campaign, but I cannot recruit Annuminas Knights or dismounted Dunedain Knights, their cards arent visible at all in recruitment. Do I need higher level barracks/stables to unlock them? Im at turn 140 or so, so Im well past the barracks event.
