Just stumbled across this. It's a mod for Rome Total War that lets you play a LotR version set in the Fourth Age.

Currently downloading it, so can't vouch for it's quality, but it definately sounds interesting. Anyone played it yet?

I have it and it's a pretty good game - excellent total mod of the original and they really did a great job with the map/skins etc. The warfare mechanics from RTW don't translate that well into Middle Earth but it's still a fun game to play - my brother's and I spent a whole summer playing the hotseat campaign (the Silvan Elves finally took there place as rulers of all Razz)

I'd definately recommend it - especially if you're familiar with RTW.

I'm currently having to redownload it because it wouldn't run >.< Think I may have saved it to the wrong place. Any tips on where to save it to AW?

Erm - I think I saved it to the recommended folder. I don't do complicated things on a computer. Have you made sure your current RTW patch is compatible with the mod?

It is - you need Barbarian Invasion V1.6 to run it and that's what I've got.

F**k it - trying to download it on Firefox instead of IE was worse - didn't even get the installation programme to run >.< I'm gonna try once more with IE, and if that doesn't work, then screw it, I'l just stick to playing regular RTW Evil or Very Mad

Laughing Oh dear - sorry I can't be more help. Have you tried any mods before that had similar problems?

Nope - this is the first mod I've ever tried. At the moment it's putting me off ever downloading a mod again Doh Which is a pity as it looks like a really nice mod going by the screen shots

Must be a different game - this one's set 200 odd years after the films.

Worked this time - just had a go at the campaign for a bit playing as Dunland. Is fairly good, though gameplay does feel a bit 'ropier' than proper RTW.

Here's some screenshots I took during play:

Dunlendings defend a bridge over the Isen against the Rohirm:



Rohan sends troops to relieve the seige of Helm's Deep:



The garrison of Helm's Deep sallies forth:




The Garrison Captain flees from the Dunlendings - he doesn't escape:



The Dunlendings attack the Caves of Anglarond:




It is defended by Dwarves:

looks good. I love RTW more than any others (got Shogun 2 but it works so slowly it's almost unplayable)
