Is two enough for the good side? I'll go for OoMM if it's ok, or maybe the Silvian elves if you'd like more good guys. I don't mind too much either way really. I'll see if I can get killed quickly enough to try more than one

Is Helm's Deep one of the custom settlements?

I emailed Galadhdor yesterday, and haven't got a reply, but I'd assume he would choose a "good" faction, thus we have equal numbers until Swampy chooses a faction. Also, yes you may switch factions should yours fall, but I don't think anyone should be able to switch sides until one side dies, due to the player having knowledge from the previous side.

And yes, Helmsdeep is a custom settlement.

Also remember more people can join in at anytime, when we started the 2.1 hotseat, it was just me and Liam playing Elves, but more joined for both sides.

I plan on starting at some point today, Swampy should I put you in as OoMM or some other faction?

Also, I made a little gift for those playing Evil factions, It's nothing the good factions couldn't have aswell, but I thought it be useful.

I like the idea of the OoMM, but maybe the good side needs more support. I'll take the Silvan elves and get them all killed by the Balrogs.

That does count as helping good right?


I'll take the Orcs please.

There's nothing like being decisive

Just saying it's lore-accurate for evil factions to be in a constant state of civil war. Especially the orcs.

less civil war, more like violent arguments between individual orcs, in which their commanders keep them in line(ex, when Lord Ugluk cut an orcs head off).

I just tried to open the saved game of the hotseat but it didn't work.
I hope i didn't save him in the right location..
What is the right location for the saved games??

The Saves folder. Play TATW, save a game and that might help if location is the problem. Also, was the save file you were sent Zipped? Because I can't get it to open when it's not zipped before it's sent. Zipped files are smaller and download more smoothly.

And that means I'm next then, make sure to zip the file before you send it to me.

Given that it's not come through me, unless you've typed up the order wrong then I guess Joopie is going from the save EoJ emailed around.

ElephantLord played his turn so presumably the turn itself should be sound unless as Augustus suggests there's an issue with downloading it. Hotmail gives you the option to 'download as zip' so you could try at without EoJ needing to resend it.

Probably a daft question, are you definitely on version 3.1 there Joopie? Installing version 3 doesn't overwrite earlier versions so watch out for starting the wrong one by mistake.

An other weard thing is that i can't find the saved game i made myself but i can open him in tatw3.1

SEGA/mtw2/mods/Thirth-Age/saves?/q]
.../Third_Age_3/saves if it's updated to 3.x

You have to save it there, and then boot up TATW, and it'll most likely be the most recent save game there
ecause I can't get it to open when it's not zipped before it's sent.
What, you can't download it? Because in the other hotseat we just send it unzipped and it's fine If you're trying to open the .sav file (which I doubt but I'll put anyway) then you're not supposed to, just dump it in the saves folder

If you have Windows 7, the saves may be in Virtual Shop. If that's the issue, there was some artical on TWC that helped me get it.

@EoJ, I only need them zipped for Third Age, because Third Age has a huge map and numerous other files. Everything else so far works fine.

Was the file you downloaded zipped? Try asking whoever sent you the file to send it zipped. I don't think the game version matters...

Swampy didn't I believe.

Also I'm certain that Misty Mountains goes before Harad, so I'm not certain what's going on right now...
