Hi, first of all, let me thank you for this forum. War of the Ring was a good piece of my childhood.

So, my problem.
I have an original copy of this game and an updated (patched) version I found here. Every time I play in Campaign mode or Skirmish and I try to save the game it gives me a "name" error. Basically, every time I have to restart everything.

I tried on 3 different computers, with Windows 10. I'm sure it worked on 8, but now I can't save. Anyone has a solution?
I have the same problem with PalMz' Insane Warfare Mod v0.3 as well.

Soo you mean the game can not create the savefile, and not being a loading error?
Something in my mind thinks that I've stumbled upon this error myself once... but I am using Windows 7. However:

  • Are you using unusual symbols for your save and/or profile name?
  • Have you tried running the game as administrator?

Good to hear that you play my sloppy mod! The FOS maps can sure take forever and needs a lot of saving! Cheesy

I feel so dumb right now... thanks, it worked! All I had to do was running the game as administrator.


Your mod is awesome, never completed a skirmish of me+ 7 Aragorn-difficult mode though. Neither me and my brother vs 6 Aragorn. Once we build 2 rows of tower and loads of enemies flod the map the game crashes every time.
May I suggest something? Elven Archers unable to take down a building is depressing and Elven Lightbearer is now insane. Theoden requires a Mordor Fortress, but you can't build that, can you?

Thanks!

Ah, perfect that you got it working! Cheesy

Oh thank you for such kind words Smiley
Good points, I appreciate feedback. Is that v0.3 or v0.4 you are talking about?

I implemented a negative siege-bonus on all arrow weapons, due to 250 population points. I found the ranged units kind'a taking over the battles on their own... Tongue But yeah, I probably overdid it!

Hahah oh, the Elven Lightbearers... I guess you are talking about their healing power? Or the stackable sunshine spell? Both are pretty INSANE for sure lol!

Theoden's requirement must've been a mistake when I tried to set it to the ID-number of a Stronghold.
