Dear TLD fans  8-)

The Last Days Of The Third Age Of Middle Earth Mod 3.3, for Mount&Blade 1.011 and now also for Warband is, after many years, finally released!

A low quality soundtrack might improve performance and reduce crashes. Simply overwrite all the appropriate music files.

You may also want to try some submods for TLD:

WARNING: these are likely outdated, check if they're updated for the Warband port yet!
1) Mod introducing Warband-like animations http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2889.0.html
2) Mod introducing female versions of many armors  http://mbx.streetofeyes.com/index.php/topic,2489.0.html
3) Realistic Combat Model (RCM) - overhauls item stats to strive for more realistic combat

NOTE! Before you explode with joy, and start soiling the topic with telling us about your ejaculations and such, we must add a sobering warning:
The release IS NOT bug free, in fact we already know some, and expect MANY more unexpected bugs, appearance of broken stuff, crashes, etc to start pouring in reports by you, the players. Hence the bug reports will be welcomed on our MBX forum. The next couple of months will then be used for making ready and available patches and additional features to the mod, ones that we simply did not have time to add in now. That will also mean that any game progress you will make will be lost when any patch comes, as it will most likely NOT BE save game compatible. After a patch ALWAYS start a new game or you will report non-existent bugs carried over in the save game.

A very thorough guide by M.ArdA for installing the mod on a Steam version of MnB:


The Last Days of The Third Age of Middle Earth Install Guide + Steam Install + Activation

1) Downloading the Mount & Blade Enhanced Version
Before downloading the TDL you need to setup Mount & Blade Enhanced Version (http://www.gamefront.com/files/20832089/mountandblade_1011_setup_enhanced.exe)


Target Directory for Steam users:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\mount and blade"

2) Downloading The TDL

The Last Days of the Third Age of Middle Earth Download Links:

M&B Repository (http://www.mbrepository.com/file.php?id=3350)

Rapidshare (https://rapidshare.com/files/3624591230/TLD3_for_MB1011.7z)

Gamefront (http://www.gamefront.com/files/20948177/TLD3.0.7z)

3)Extracting from WinRaR

Extract TLD3.0.rar file to Mount & Blade\Modules

4) Fıle Changes form Data Folder

Open theMount&Blade\Modules\TLD\Data folder. The black framed files are .brf files and copy them to M&B/CommonRes/ folder. Overwrite when asked.
The platoon framed files are *.txt and *.xml files and copy them to M&B/Data/ folder. Overwrite when asked.
The other files that red framed are the remaining files and copy them to M&B/ folder. Overwrite when asked.

5) Iron Launcher

To run the game you need to launch it through a special launcher, IronLauncher.exe, which is located in mod folder. But you need to activate your game after you installed Enhanced Version. If you have activated it before, your mod is installed now.

6) Aktivation (Non-Steam)



Write down your M&B CD-Key to the blanks up there. And your mod is installed now.  The other steps for the Steam Users.

7) Finding CD-Key on Steam

Open your Library on Steam. When you clicked Mount & Blade you will see CD-KEY on the right side of the Steam.


Click"Copy Key to Clipboard" to copy your CD-Key.

8 ) Aktivation (For Steam Users)


You know the drill in here. It's the same with step 6.


Congratulations! But its not done yet. Remember we need to start TDL via IronLauncher.

9) Adding The Last Days to Steam

Make a shortcut to the IronLauncher.exe from Mount & Blade\Modules\TDL folder. And rename it "The Last Days of the Third Age of Middle Earth"

Open Steam and Library.


Press "ADD A GAME..." on the down left side of your Steam. Click "Add a Non-Steam Game..."

Find The Last Days of the Third Age of Middle Earth that we renamed it. If you cant find it click "Browse" and the find it.


It's done!. Now you can play TDL from your desktop or from Steam.

Hi, everyone.

I am making troop tree for TLD. (using scripts) (http://andrey-cjkjvfnby.narod.ru/tree.htm)

Some part of it is not yet ready.
I don't have formula how to get XP for killing by unit level.  (I just hardcoded values for some levels)
I don't know how to get sell price by unit level. (I just hardcoded values for some levels)
I don't know how to get unit wages. (Looks like it depends not only from level.)

I want to make images for every unit. But I does  not know how.  Looks like the only way to do it is make sceenshots from game.   It that case I need help of someone who skilled in game script.

It looks like some units are legacy of native (manhunter, Novice fighter) I hope developers can remove them in next patch.

A minifix for 3.12 while waiting for the big patch. Fixes quest window crashes

1. Open strings.txt in Modules/TLD3.1 folder
2. Search for the "{reg1_(Apr)}". Should be in str_april_reg1_reg2 string
3. Replace it with "{reg1}_(Apr)"
