Legends of Middle Earth – The Return of the King available for testing.

12 of the 17 scenarios for the final instalment of the Legends of Middle Earth Trilogy have been posted to LFS.  As development resources are scarce, it would be great for some testing and feedback from the LFS community.  It is hoped that the project will finally be finished by mid-year (or before the release of the Hobbit movie anyway).  The new Legends of Middle Earth homepage includes links to the new scenarios and allows for feedback on bugs or suggested improvements.  Scenarios will vary in length from 5 minute cinematics to 1-2 hour quests.  The scenarios are more aligned to the original book and so includes the Elves attack on Dol Guldur; Dale, Erebor and Mirkwood’s defence of the North and the hobbits returning to Scour the Shire.  The new release should also fix some outstanding issues (though as always it will probably replace them with new ones).

P.S. Single Player now works (haven’t heard a compliant to the contrary), and if people want to discuss a multiplayer option (SEE STOP PRESS) too late I think that is fixed!

Thankyou to anyone who takes the time to do some testing.

 

STOP PRESS

You ask, and we deliver.  The LAN multiplayer option has been reintroduced as a result of Steak and Khan telling me it actually use to work.  It is posted here.  Not tested yet but will try with my kids tomorrow, but if you want to score a first down, get in quick!  I’m pretty sure it will work because I didn’t actually change anything!  Update: Tried it over the weeked and got it to connect, but kept getting sync errors.  Waiting for someone who knows how multiplayer works to see if it is just me:(
