First of all I'm not the creator of this mod, I only made it compatible with BFME2. This is a small fx addon and it wont change anything gameplay wise exept adding blood and removing team color and it will only work for BFME2 and "NOT" ROTWK. I have seen this so called "blood mod" floating around on the internet for many years for vBFME2 v1.03 but not for v1.06. I also saw some requests on a few forums but no one really answered. Nowdays you'll see a blood mod in many mods for ROTWK but not so many for BFME2. So here you have it for BFME2 :)


1. Make sure you have the latest version of BFME2 ( it should work with BFME2 BT2DC and other mods too)

2. Open the rar file and copy/extract the folder "blood" to
If you have WINXP
C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files

or if you have WIN7
C:\Users\[your login name]\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) Files

3. Make a shortcut of BFME2
right click the shortcut and select Properties
and look for a box "Target:
make a space behind The Battle for Middle-earth ™ II\lotrbfme2.exe" and add -mod blood

It should look like something like this
The Battle for Middle-earth ™ II\lotrbfme2.exe" -mod blood

Yes and no, a few have black/grey blood but most of them have green blood o_O I didn't like that so I changed that but not in the one I uploaded here. This one is untouched from its original state.

You can however change the blood color to any color :P

Nice add on. I forgot how ugly EA's vanilla skins were. I believe much of that was due to the fact that they rushed BFME by a month or 2 to meet the Christmas deadline. Hence why Custom Heroes were so incredibly detailed. That was a main selling point of the game so they focused on it.

Thankfully we have some truly talented mod(ders). 2 that come to mind are the RC and Edain Mod.

How do you remove team color?! I need team color removed for BFME1 and Rotwk :( Once you notice how game ruining the team colors are you want to pound sand.

you can do this:
1. Download this addon
2. Place it somewhere
3. Open your main Rotwk folder (probaly c:x\Battle for middle earth 2 - rise of the wich-king) there you should see a folder named "data" open it and inside create a folder named ini then open the ini folder and create a folder named object
4. Now open the blood mod folder and the open folder "data" then open "ini" then open "object"
5. there you should see a file "gamedata" copy it to your object folder you created from step 3 and you are done :)

Good luck :)
