Description of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, Vol. I

Commonly regarded as one of the best Tolkien games ever made, Interplay's adaptation is an excellent blend of RPG and adventure that vividly captures the spirit of Tolkien's worlds through cutscenes and vibrant in-game graphics. The only downsides I can think of for this cult classic are: no automap feature (added in the CD-ROM version) and numerous combats (althought most are avoidable). The game is truly epic in scope and design, and the fact that it does not follow the book too closely leads to numerous side-quests and different paths to the end. Highly recommended.

Regarding the CD issues. LORDCD.cue has a bug in it. Open the file in a txt editor and change `FILE "LORD_CD.bin" BINARY` to `FILE "LORDCD.bin" BINARY`. This way, it has the accurate filename for the .bin. Then you will be able to imgmount the cue instead of mounting the bin. Mounting the .cue is necessary to get the music playing. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see the DOSbox Wiki link above.

If anybody has an answer about the question that Mark asked CD-ROM must be active in order to play music can you post the answers or instructions and please make it sound as simple as possible maybe write a demonstration.

Anyone else getting a message saying that the CD-ROM must be active in order to play music? It would seem the game plays well if I just go through the full install using the image-mount walkthrough. Am I missing a step in DOSbox that will activate my "CD-ROM"? I know this is a shot in the dark, but figured I would try.

omg, it looks (a bit) like the movies ! I mean that it wasnt hard at all to make a movie when you already have alot of elements from old games, pictures...
