I'm playing mod version beta 23.3 and I cannot command my hired unit.
Ocassionally while pushing buttons I have hired one Hobbit Shirriff. Now I want let him stay and not follow me. Wiki says: "right-click them and click command button". I do right-click but not see any buttons, GUI not appears. In case of Traders right-clicking works (brings menu). What I'm doing wrong?
Also mentioned that hired Hobbit Shirriff spawned and follows me, but I see neither 'Hired' tag above his head nor health bar.
Thanks, Horn of Command worked! Now that poor hobbit stands like cursed... but let it be... not follows me like mad everywere I go.
But meanwhile I hired 3 more of them to test whether this was a glitch with a that one and also assigned them to a squadron upon hiring in Hiring menu. So Table of Command was necessary to stop them all.
You came in time - I was about abandon my game and start a new one.
But ... should it be a gui upon right-clicking a hired unit or I should carefully assign them to squadrons upon hiring and stop/follow them by the Horn of Command?
Problem continues with beta 27.2 (Forge version 10.13.3..1428). SP works fine. MP there is no command GUI when right-clicking on the unit; nor any "Hired" tag above the unit's head. Squadron based horns do work, but since there's no way to assign to a squadron after purchase that has limited application.
I just retested and confirmed. No mods installed on the server side and only Journeymap (JourneyMap5.0.1_Unlimited_MC1.7.10) on the client side. No health-bar across the top of the unit and right-clicking does nothing. Also went back into a SP game - health-bar visible & right click brings up the command window.
In that case, I might suggest backing up your worlds, deleting your .minecraft, and reinstalling Minecraft, Forge, and the LotR Mod. Perhaps something got corrupted in there. If that still doesn't solve your problem, I'd check with the server owner.
It's been a while since I've been able to work on this issue but I finally found time, and a resolution. This is/was decidedly a server-side problem. I was able to create a working LOTR multi-player world by using the recommended version of Forge - 1291. That's a rather old version of Forge. I have not tried all versions since then, but it did not work for me with either 1428 or 1558.
It would be nice to know if there are other known good versions of Forge. If anyone has a list, please share.
Once again a very late reply, but at least we have a root cause. It turns out that the game must be in "Online mode" (server.properties: online-mode=true). As soon as we changed that parameter to 'false' it broke. Switched it back to 'true' it started working again.
I'll leave it to the experts to figure out whether that's a bug or a feature. :)
