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.
also, how does one detonate a bomb without having the enemy kill it or using the fires of orthanic clicking thing? shouldn't the torch bearer work? it isn't working for me in random map :

Sounds amazing, but any chance you could upload the files only (i.e. no .exe program)? I like to know what files are being created on my computer and where they are all going... Plus, I have NUMEROUS non-standard files in my game, and don't want to chance overwriting anything. Thanks

A problem occurs on random maps, Ai's computer error message appears next, ERROR = 0003:could not compile file 'A12\AoMEaiLoaderbalacedxs'.
Tell me what to do to correct this error, so I can play random map and work with computer AI intelligence usually ok.

Could you guys just update this and remove the add ons submitted for it? It would be alot less confusing for me and other people.

Can you send a link of the update so that you can play random maps with AI's doing what they are supposed to do? That would be nice seeing as i have no idea where to find it. Thanks.
