Buongiorno Edmundos and happy new year! I have been steadily going through one of my old hard drives that I haven't used in an age, during this process I have been periodically saving anything that's not total and utter crap. I recently came across one of my very earliest maps that I presumed I had lost all copies of when my old laptop died. It was a shellmap of Osgiliath with an arseload of camera angles, however the scripting and very map itself were indeed rough, so I've quickly tarted it up and uploaded it to T3A for anybody to have free of permission.

Downloadable in 'Addons' Section or T3A.

I need a lot of help. Recently my computer recommended I reinstall Battle For Middle Earth I with the right settings. Ever since I reinstalled it five minutes into the game I just die! Yes my castle makes an exploding sound and I hear a death quote (depending on what faction) such as,"We've lost the citadel!" This happens with every faction and it makes me angry. Any help or suggestions on what I can do?

Happened to me too... I bought a used game and heard it was some kind of anti piracy thing from EA... Instant kills your base. Just install the patch and everything should go fine.
