The textures on very low detail on the Gundabad tournament map have been fixed.
When joining a multiplayer WOTR game the map image is no longer blank.
CAH reinforcements can no longer be garrisoned onto transport ships.
The flag capturing process now stops when the user teleports the capturing units to another location.
Darkness powers can no longer buff mini-hero hordes.
A CAH now earns the "War Veteran" award after fighting 20 online battles for winning or losing.
The man CAH coerce ability no longer affects mini-hero hordes or large summoned non-hero units (Watcher, Dragonstrike, etc.).


CaH Converter Tool

We've included a conversion tool that will allow players to use their previously created heroes. When the tool is run it does the following:
Scans the user's base game directory for user-made create a heroes
Displays a list to the user and ask if they want to convert the heroes
Cycle through each hero, convert them, and copy the hero and stats over to the expansion's user data folder
*NOTE - It will prompt for overwrite if that hero happens to be in the expansion already (in case they accidentally re-ran the tool)

All converted heroes will retain their existing stats/awards, looks, and name but will lose all of their powers. These powers can be re-selected in game after conversion process.

The Servant of Sauron Attack Trolls will be moved to the Olog-Hai class. The other Servant of Sauron heroes will have their indices changed to account for the Troll leaving the SaS class.

The base game's heroes will not be touched - the converted heroes will be copies of the original base game heroes. As a result, "Hero A" will be playable in both the base game and the expansion, but any awards won in the base game will not transfer to the expansion (and vice versa).

Thats one thing we'll be looking at in the LOTR Files balance mod wink We won't be able to release it now as I'm waiting for this patch to come out as then we can make it compatible with the new .01 patch, so sorry members your going to have to wait for a bit till they get this patch out. But don't worry the mod is all sorted just waiting for 2.01 for Rotwk to come out.
