Legends of Middle Earth

Author File Description
Stephen Caines
File Details
Version: AoM: The Titans
Compatibility: Requires Age of Mythology The Titans Expansion version 1.03
AoM:TT and LoME cannot be run concurrently.


Basic Overview

Legends of Middle Earth is a full makeover of Age of Mythology: The Titans, and provides for both normal Single Player Random maps where you can play as Men, Elves, Orcs, Dwarves; or the traditional LOTR campaigns. You can play multi-user using directly connected PC’s, but the game is not ESO-compatible.

The Campaigns

The Campaign Menu has five options:
  • The Hobbit

  • Fellowship of the Ring (FOTR)

  • The Two Towers (TTT)

  • The Return of the King (ROTK)

  • Adventures in Middle Earth

FOTR and TTT are complete campaigns. ROTK is a work in progress and only the first 4 scenarios are included at present. The Hobbit currently holds a prequel scenario that lets people know that the slot is available for anyone to use once the movie is out.
Adventures in Middle Earth is really just a place where you can put your own Middle Earth creations or those others have posted – I’ve noticed a few good ones – It has two example scenarios.

To install:
  1. Download the .zip file

  2. Extract and run the Legend of Middle Earth 4.0 application, if prompted to use the current Age of Mythology folder say yes. THIS WILL NOT OVERWRITE ANY STANDARD AOM:TT FILES

To run:
  1. Run the AOMEmod.exe in your Age of Mythology folder (or click the desktop icon if you requested one)

  2. Click the Campaign button on the Main Menu.

  3. Choose the campaign of your choice – most likely The Two Towers!

  4. Select first scenario – most likely Foundations of Stone - and difficulty level.

  5. Click the Start Button.

  6. Random Map play goes through the same process as AoM:TT and unfortunately uses the same maps. Most of the stuff is in the online tech tree so use this to inform your selection. Some of the newer stuff cannot be built or trained at present (though my kids are hassling me do fix this). I will get around to it!




Acknowledgements: A lot of people played a role in this game – click Game Credits for a full list, but for the last year or so it has been down to Guardian of Isis and myself. We thank you for your patience! ROTK has no target completion date and I will release updates separately as they are done.

I don't really know what to say so I'm gonna let sam say it for you. Take it away sam-

"You finished it."
Doogie12 This is probably one of the most awesome things ever.
That being said...I'm having issues.
Every time I play a random map an error message appears and the ai fails to do anything.
Also, the texture for some of the new columns don't appear for me either. Any reason why this is happening?

A fix for the AI problem has been loaded (post #9903). One of its AI files was missing. It should run OK once it is installed.

On the texture front and I still trying to figure out why this occurs. I would have thought you would either get the textures or not as they are all in the same .bar file, but clearly this isn't so. Will keep thinking about it.
biofx i cant play with Random map ):

@biofx - was that before or after installing the missing file?
GuardianOfIsis Have fun playing, everyone! Please excuse us for anything that might still go wrong; when it's really only two people working together on the project (as it has been for the past one or two years) bugs tend to slip past more easily. :)

Many words must be used to describe this masterpiece, sure there were a few errors in the actual campaign, but that is nothing compared to how amazing this is, I have however, found one thing I would like to see more of - The Harad XD I would like to request to mod (Using your guide) The unused civ to create a new Haradrim Civ, specifically for this mod (Im also working on some maps for this :P) It would expand the Haradrim and add other units, plus desert GPs (Some will come from the Egyptians :P) Anyway if this is OK then I will start ASAP with covering the Unused Civ with an extended Harad one :P (And if anyone collects GW ill add some Mahud and Umbar from that... perhaps even Khand)

Additional Comments:
Anyway back to the point :P This is a 4 for 2 Reasons: The Balrog mission I have killed the Balrog and it wont take me further, on the first Two Towers mission I cant start and the faces of the heroes (Especially Gandalf and excluding Frodo) are very pixelated!

It is literally requiring these fixes and it shall be a perfect 5 ;)

@BSU_DoLhades - After you kill the Balrog do you end at the camera cut looking up to where the Balrog dies, or looking down on Gandalf in the snow?

Update: there are only two triggers after you kill the Balrog and the only thing I can see is it being is that it cannot access a sound file in the AOME_LTA_Sounds.bar folder. I have posted an update which will install the file sounds/balrogboostraor.wav as a freestanding file.
