Very nice findings! I am very excited to see how far you can get this. If you find a way to add the factions for CaH without deleting anything really necessary just let me know. And you are right, this could really be usefull for Edain. :)
Edit: We could talk about integrating this into the Edain launchers if it really works. Just keep in mind: copyright here in Germany is very strict, so removing the CD Check would be a no go for Edain.
Do you get a specific error? Do you have .Net Framework installed? Which OS are you using?
The shellmap is the map which you see in the background of the main menu of the game.
Thats a bug from the original game, not the mod and we cant do anything against it.
You can try it, but is probably not helping. Are you getting any error message?
Is the Main game working? If not: Open the switcher, go to Tools and options and click on "Fix a not starting game".
We are planning to add more and more factions to the Demo. So the first version will only include the four said factions but we will release Updates for it with new factions. So there would rather be a modular extention than a sudden Full release version.
Yes, 4.0 will have Full wide screen Support. Even in 3.8.1 you can Set any resolution in the switcher, but Most graphics are stretched in wide screen.
The official online servers from EA are down. So no need for an EA account. Tunngle is an VPN client that lets you play the game via a VPN connection with others. Same as Hamachi or others.
Do you have any other mod installed? Do you have patch 2.01?
Download Tunngle, create an account and install it. Then open the switcher, go to Multiplayer and launch tunngle. It will automatically log you in into the right network. Now just ask if someone wants to play in the chatroom.
Open the Switcher, go to submods, uncheck the submod.
But that is NOT the newest version. That one can be found here:
That version also has an installer, so no worry about copying the file to the wrong folder.
As often said: 4.0 will be available in english and german. You can choose the language you like.
Could you describe the error any further?
Do you have any other mods installed? Patch 2.02 counts as mod. Did you install the correct language version of the patch?
Read the News. The Demo will be released in Q1 2015 in English and German.
Yes, but these were previews of the next version, which will be, as said, available in both languages ;)
Well, because we are a german team and play games in our mother language? :D We know English, for sure. But the text only is about 20.000 lines. And since we made the mod in german, we also added german sounds.
But as said a few times before: the demo will be released in both languages. You can choose the one you like in the launcher.
Yes, we try our best to balance them. We even have a few guys only testing the balance in multiplayer.
1) We mainly use animations from the game. The reason is easy: it is very hard and time consuming to make good looking animation with the tools we have. I once made an animation for a simple rotating, flying dagger. Needed more than a week with my skills. Some people in our team could probably do it a lot faster, but complex animations are simply to time consuming. The problem is also that you need to do it completly from scratch, since it is not possible to import animations from BFME2.
2) In my opinion - not really. Those things looked like slapstick. We wont to keep a kind of "realism" in the mod.
4) There are already some custom maps providing this, for example Helms Deep Horror.
The 4.0 installer will delete 3.8.1.
The switcher, now called launcher, will receive a complete recoding and a complete New design. There will be New features, but only minor ones.
No. The switcher renames, creates and deletes files in your game folder. Admin rights are required to do that in C:\Program Files wäre most people have installed the game.
Not really more than the original game needs. You`ll be totally fine with 4 GBs or more, but even less should work.
Or do you mean harddrive disk space?
You'll get a mismatch error, which tells you that you do not have the same game files.
Edit: God damn, FG15 was 5 seconds faster :'(
We are not supporting pirated versions of the game.
Did you install the correct language version of the patches? If the game launches without the mod it should also launch with the mod. Or do you get a game crash?
You have to give it directly to the hero instead of putting it in the fortress.
Any Valar would be extremly overpowered. Our mod is also settled in the 2nd and 3rd Age, so the only Maiar in the mod and in this age were the 5 wizards, Balrogs and Sauron. Noone else.
The last update was a week ago, so please be patient :D
