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.

Shire14 First off I would like to say that I love this mod. Wonderful job guys. I have a simple question though... How do you play multiplayer? I looked for the multiplayer sign but could not find it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
Inazuma Hey all,
Thanks for all the comments :)

Aristos1 I open the window to play but when I go to caimpaign or sp or toturial or editor it says there is a problem!!! PLZ help!!!!!
Dan_GreatWolf Well i have one problem with the Two Towers Campaign.

When i Finish "The Taming of Smeagol" and it appears the option about going to Campaign Menu or Next Scenario, I click Next Scenario but it will start again the same scenario (The Taming of Smeagol) and i cant play any further of the TTT campaign :/

Note: I have Installed the 1.1 PATCH That Guardian of Isis Posted, does that affect in any way?

cdadare I hope someone is still checking this because I'm stuck on the Fellowship of the Ring Scenario at Puzzle with 26 squares. Any assistance would be much appreciated!
Drakkoran I run the exe and install it and all that (Take note I have AOM Gold Edition)

I go to run the game it says Im missing "rockalldll.dll" and when i copy that in it throws more missing file errors at me so I copy every thing over and it starts to run but then it gives me "Initialization Error" and exits the game.

What do? Please help?
SandwitchMaker A few little problems:
Guard of the citadel is missing a torso, and sorta floats about.
Tree of the Vala power does nothing, you place it down, but get no tree. (Same in editor)
Dwarven shrines appear with Posiden, 50% chance I guess. You can't garrison relics either, because dwarven shrines have to be drag selected.
Uruk-hai ram must be drag selected, and I couldn't get mine to attack buildings.
Dwarves axe-throwers only throw one axe at buildings, then stop attacking.
Dwarven archers cannot build.
Getting more villagers tasked on town center is impossible I think: town center being built must be drag selected.
But I love this game, way more than AoM.
Great work! But I would appreciate these things to be fixed/worked on.

Sincerely, SandwitchMaker

PS: If you could make LoME maps for skirmish, that would be great!
lazyazian This is the best modification for AoM ever! I love it! I give it a 9/10.

I often play as the Elves, and I have issues regarding the Elves.

First, the Tree-inspired buildings when you play the Goddess Varda (Galadriel & Celeborn). They take up quite a lot of graphic data which slows down the game play when I use them on Random Map. I love the idea of the huge Malorn Trees as the buildings for Varda's group but it makes everything excruciatingly slow. My suggestion would be to keep the Hall of Galadriel and the Town Centres as huge tree-buildings but everything else should be modified into a non-Tree building so it will make it possible to play under Varda in a normal pace. Perhaps Manwe buildings with Gaia's nature-undergrowth?

Second, the Tree of Vala power does not work. When I use it the tree doesn't appear. Either that needs to be fixed or I'm not doing something right.

Third, Galadriel and Celeborn are useless heroes. Galadriel cam heal a unit and empower a building, but being the most powerful Elf in the Middle Earth she has zero offensive skills. Celeborn is even more useless, he heals a unit and that's it. At least give them magic attacks or something.

Other than that I'm content with the Elven group :).

Redgrave I cannot play random maps due to an error the opponent just stands there and please can someone link me to the latest update for this game to download a patch or fix some bugs?

Also is there any way to check on the progress of how the game is updating and progressing?

Also, some errors (although if someone could direct me to a patch they may be fixed).
1) The return of the king only 1 scenario loads and it just repeats as it is a cinematic
2) The two towers when the wargs are attacking on the way to helms deep Legolas just stands there and so the cutscene cannot progress so I cannot play any further.
3) The fellowship of the ring in the mission with the woods with aragorn i find a dwarf and he tells me something but his dialog box overfloes so i cannot read it so i do not know what to do

Thanks! pqpqpqpqpq Talon5505
krodimuz where is the proto on this game
