Compatibility: Requires Age of Mythology The Titans Expansion version 1.03
AoM:TT and LoME cannot be run concurrently.
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 Campaign Menu has five options:
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.
Download the .zip file
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
Run the AOMEmod.exe in your Age of Mythology folder (or click the desktop icon if you requested one)
Click the Campaign button on the Main Menu.
Choose the campaign of your choice – most likely The Two Towers!
Select first scenario – most likely Foundations of Stone - and difficulty level.
Click the Start Button.
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.
A patch is needed to fix some issues in the campaign and to fix the AI in the Random Matches. Search "LoME Patch 4.01" or use the link below. There really should be something on this page to notify people of the Patch...
