Hey everybody!

Well with the release of TDH 0.75, i've finally managed to finish a little side project of mine, a modding tool that combines my two favourite mods: The Dwarf Holds and The Elven Alliance.
If you're like me, and you've always imagined what it'd be like to play with both dwarves and elves in BFME1, then simply download and run this installer.

As long as you have the latest versions of TDH and TEA installed, the tool will install a new shortcut, plus the necessary ini files, combined from the two separate mods. Which saves you having to download hundreds of MB worth of assets that you already have!

Below is a small selection of screenshots, and a readme with a full changelog can be found with the installer.

Enjoy! ^_^

Excellent work! I've just had a game of Elves vs. Dwarves. I'm completely blown away!

Also, very nice screenshots ;)

Actually, this is so cool that I'm moving it to the T3A News for it to get more exposure (hope you don't mind, Haldir). I might also have to talk to the T3A leadership about a possible reward of sorts for you. I know this is something the community has desired for a long time.

Oh that's absolutely brilliant, thanks Phil!

And like you said, it's something a lot of people have asked for in the past, so i'm just glad that people will finally get the chance to experience the two mods together :)

So what is the balancing between factions like? And does the campaign work?

I was just browsing around remembering good times when I saw this. Great job Haldir! It's amazing work, and it must have taken forever.
Wait... what?

And for giving everyone a good laugh, and honestly for all anyone knows Haldir could truly have made something like this (Or be working on it) and just wanted to give everyone a proper laugh to begin with.

Good job Haldir! But guys, seriously, aren't you a little bit over-reacting? I know how exciting this could be, but it's actually the mod makers who deserve the hugs and coolness points....

Hehe, i'm glad you guys got a laugh out of it. It was actually quite tricky trying to tell whether some of the posts were playing along, complimenting my joke, or just genuinely fooled.
I'd say it's pretty definite that this'll never happen, let alone by me with my non-existent coding ability :p

Also, well played Phil. Well played.
