It started a journey that we can only admire ...




It started with a bunch of kids five years ago. Some died, some grew up, some had families.



The rest joined forces and challenged the Modding standards of the day.



They started a project based on the best fantasy movie around at the time.



And embarked on an adventure



They discovered that some friends were enemies



.. and that some enemies were friends



They then joined forces on a quest



That led to worst of worlds ...




And the best ...



But with the challenges of life the quest faltered ..



.. and the Fellowship faltered also ...



But Lars had promised to see the task through ..



.. and searched for the strange modding creature that might help him on his quest ...



... and then the fellowship lived on ...



... and new and strange allies were found ..




.. and the adventure continued ..



... and the forces of good reunited ...



... and continued the quest



... and found new companions ..



...to challenge the evil Rider in his fortress of LFS (my bad Sebastian) ...



... and So Newbies grew up and rode off to their new challenge ...



... the old realised they were strong ...



... the young realised that Middle Earth was worth fighting for ...



... and perchance the Hobbits will continue their quest???

Excellent job Stephen. I see that Lars passed on my advise to you about naming the topic something to do with LOTR

I will forever be awed by your guys' work.

Yes I left that in during testing, as I figured Guardian (who usually is meticulous with his spelling) did it as a joke! Maybe I should check??

Hmm... I never really considered it when I was inexperienced, but depending on how long this continues for, I may be able to help out.

Great work.

The 2nd and last shots look the most like the movie.

If you really wanna make high poly models, EmjeR, be my guest.

There's one more scenario that needs to be finished and then the campaign is about complete, I think. Of course, we'll re-test for additional bugs etc. But we're finally almost there.

And by the way, my misspelling of the word "column" was because in Dutch, my native language, the similar word is "kolonne". It's one to remember in any case.

    Made me chuckle. I think you meant "column"? A colon is inside your rectum.

    Alas the Fellowship has broken, I got into this for the Modding and still think LoME is pretty cool in that respect.

    I have tried to make TTT happen in recent times (and play it constantly), but the last reminant of the LTA Team has unfortunately moved on.

    If Lars gives the nod I will post the TTT (and FOTR converted) scenarios on Diino, if not there will be a gap as I want to move on to ROTK - before trying to get a Hobbit Campaign to market before the movie (just need the actors faces).

    Until then, any fixes/adds for LoME will continue to get posted to Diino, along with anything else thay LTA allows out.

    To all of those who have supported and inspired this project - mi discpiace - but then again you'll have my email and may inadvertently get the work in progress!

    Some ROTK teasers ...

    Oh god, at the start of that post I thought you were saying this was over. Well if you're doing RotK and Hobbit then it should hopefully be going long enough for me to be able to join in and help out in some way. Anyways, nice screens, though ents seem a liiitle small .

    This is confusing What do you mean the last remnant of the LTA team has moved on? Has Lars stopped working?

    How depressing, three people even care

    Anyway, Lars and I have finally had some free time, so we want to launch The Two Towers - and I am still planning to do ROTK and the Hobbit.

    What we need now is some Beta game testers.

    To test the game you will need to have the latest version of Legends of Middle Earth, which is available at Diino.com, username = lomefiles, password = guardian. The release is about 120MB, with updates a lot smaller (and hopefully the 3.10 patch is the last!

    By this weekend, the beta release of the scenarios will be available, and we want a bunch of people to playtest it.

    If you are interested please email me at stephencaines@impulse.net.au and I will send you the additional login details for the scenario folder.

    What we want from you is constructive feedback on bugs and playability. The campaign comprises 15 scenarios, and you will probably need to commit 30-40 hours to the task.

    Look forward to hearing from volunteers!

    Stephen and Lars
