Na I didn't change any files. I'll try it again on a different map and see if it still happens.

EDIT. Well I tried it on a few different maps and it only seems to be The Black Gate map that has the problem :p

well then, don't do Black Gate :p
anyways, some of my Eorlingas are old.... like, they suck EA time ^_^ and their gold with heavy armor! :p anyone else have this problem, or is it just me who has old skins in my BFME folder :p

I've only played with Rohan, once now... damn Hama, died from a single cave troll blow... can't you make him stronger and make him atleast kill a cave troll?
*Gimlic voice* oh wait, he died by a warg, a warg!

But Black Gate is my favourite multiplayer map :(

I don't think Hama should be able to kill a troll. Wargs yes, trolls no. Reason is you wouldn't exactly come across many trolls when you are guarding the gates of Meduseld, so he wouldn't know how to deal with them.

BTW, I forgot to mention great job on the new Rohan stuff Celeglin ^_^. I started massing Eorlingas, then remembered I was facing Mordor/Isen so built a few royal guards instead. They were good, but not so good that one group could hold off an entire army. Your skins look beautiful ingame though :p

I battalion of RG is better than Hama. But all Rohan heroes (apart from Aragorn and Gimli) are not too strong, which is right IMO. They have to fight together with Rohirrim to level up fast, unfortunately they need a lot of babysitting :p
Don't you think that Eowyn needs a mount at level 1? She's rather weak and it's impossible to level her up with peasants.

It would be good to see a Gondor spearman somewhere


I'd like to see Gondor Spearmen - after adding such unit it will be possible to make Tower Guards very tought, flexible unit, not just basic pikes.

I found a bug. When playing as Rohan, I need to purchase a hero before I can purchase Merry, which pretty much makes Merry useless


My Merry works properly ^_^

You'd better install the English version - there are some problems with other versions, like Polish or German. I don't know how's with Spanish, though.

anyways, Merry is a dork on Black Gate, we said that swan


Ups, I had to miss something :p

Unfortunately, more bugs: :(

1. Stables still doesn't work - gates doesn't open, and cavalry runs through the wall next to the them.
2. Cirdan damage decreases ;) after leveling up. First-level Cirdan kills an orc in two hits, second level Cirdan - in 3 hits! Maybe it's something wrong with orcs, I don't know. I'm playing at the moment so I'm checking it.
3. Some problems with darkness - sometimes it doesn't work.


And, to say something nice, Spearman of the Heaven, new Rohan's Forged Blades buttom and new heroes skins are great just great, amazing, and wounderful :p ^_^ :p

ugg. now i remember another problem that i forgot about. you have to buy another hero at a camp before you can buy merry. it is at camps and not at castles

2. Cirdan damage decreases blink.gif after leveling up. First-level Cirdan kills an orc in two hits, second level Cirdan - in 3 hits! Maybe it's something wrong with orcs, I don't know. I'm playing at the moment so I'm checking it.
3. Some problems with darkness - sometimes it doesn't work.


2. my guess is that the orcs had some leadership on them or they were level 2
3. no it works. you just dont see the shiny glow on people all the time

I blame you :p .

I've only played with Rohan, once now... damn Hama, died from a single cave troll blow... can't you make him stronger and make him atleast kill a cave troll?
*Gimlic voice* oh wait, he died by a warg, a warg!

Hama gets a good buff when near Theoden.

Don't you think that Eowyn needs a mount at level 1? She's rather weak and it's impossible to level her up with peasants.

Remember that problem I have with Glorfindel and Arwen and their heavy armor mounted states? That is the only reason why Eowyn can't mount until she gets her armor upgrade.

1. Stables still doesn't work - gates doesn't open, and cavalry runs through the wall next to the them.

I could swear I put that in the readme.

2. Cirdan damage decreases :p after leveling up. First-level Cirdan kills an orc in two hits, second level Cirdan - in 3 hits! Maybe it's something wrong with orcs, I don't know. I'm playing at the moment so I'm checking it.

As adummy said, they must have had leadership of upgrades.

3. Some problems with darkness - sometimes it doesn't work.

Some things to know about Darkness:
- While units get leadership from it, they don't show the FX (EA did this in patch 1.03)
- I've changed the Darkness FX so all it does now is get darker. No rolling brown clouds.

ugg. now i remember another problem that i forgot about. you have to buy another hero at a camp before you can buy merry. it is at camps and not at castles

****!!

Thanks for all the compliments, guys.

Uhh... No you don't... Did you go messing with the files? Trust me, we've tested that.


I had the very same problem. :p

I just have to say that the new skins are just UNBELEIVABLE on ultra-high spec. It's so awesome Celeglin! :p

I have one question: will Isen and Mordor be getting some real changes (not just a few reskins) too? I know Gothmog and Ugluk were added but just wondering. :p

Is anyone here by chance "ryn<bunch of numbers>" online because we were about to have a TEA match but he had a bunch of FW problems. ^_^

Sorry ;) , I didn't notice Tainted Land next to them - they just did't shine, and it was near the Outpost, so the land wasn't tainted.

BTW, I really like the way you made Eorlingas - they are one of the most usefull and cost effective Rohan units.

And are you going to make new upgrade buttons for Elves? I like this Forged Blades button - it's a small thing, but makes happy :p

I don't wan't to know what you were thinking when you typed that ;)

But anyway, what kind of new upgrade do you think he could add. They've already got the upgrades the other factions recieve. :wub:
