Welcome fans of BFME and LOTR
On this page i will introduce you with my mod for Rise of the Witch-King, on which i worked on for the past 2 years
Before playing this mod, be sure that you have patched the game with 2.01 version
The Battles of the Third Age (BOTTA) mod is a mod for The Battle for Middle Earth - The Rise of the Witch King.
This mod tends to follow the lore of books and films along with bringing the realism in the gameplay, and generally concentrates of the happenings in the Third age of Middle Earth, so you will see almost every character that fought in the battles of this age, for example: Bolg, Beorn, Imrahil, Shagrat etc.
Lots of the balance from the vanilla games is fixed so be free to expect some new gameplay styles and new strategies and tactics that you will use in order to destroy your enemy.To do that, you will get help from the new Heroes and Units and their new Powers that are in this mod.
No rush tactics anymore, AI wont charge on you in the first 5 minutes, giving you no time to expand your camp and upgrade your economy. Gameplay now focuses on defense, rather than offense like in the vanilla game. So you will have a lot of time for preparing for battle, upgrading your units and level up your Heroes.

General changes:
- Stronger Heroes
- Stronger Structures
- New Game balance
- New Heroes, Units, Buildings and Powers
- New and improved Textures for every single Hero or Unit in the game
- Smaller battalions
- New Upgrades
- New Siege system
- New Upgrade systems
- New sounds and effects

NOTE:

- War of the Ring mode is buggy

Stay tuned for more news and screenshots

First of all, I want to thank MorguLord for this absolutely awesome mod. Much better than the Edain Mod for me.
But most of all, take your time to work this BotTA Mod, take more care of your life, your work, your friends, your family, do not rush for us, we already owe you so much for this amazing mod.
I can not wait for this mod to be definitely finished, but I want you to take your time and you do not take your head for it, yet a big thanks to you.
Good luck my friend, and enjoy your life, your mod is the best of all!
And to finish this comment, I would like to ask MorguLord (or Elladan, I don't know who are you ahah) if it is possible that I create a french patch for the mod, it would be even better to offer a better gaming experience for French players, and I would like to take care of it if you accept this request :)

I just want to keep this mod page alive and have come to aid of Morgulord as he is obviously busy.

Nice to see that here are still people appreciating Morgulords work and noticing the human being behind the mod. Good post!

Whenever I click on skirmish, the game crashes. It just says Windows has encountered an Error and will now quit. Please help

Strange error. I would recommend my described procedure 3 posts below yours.

The game crashes every time I try and start it up.

It gives me an error like "iniParseObjectFilter expecting a + or - token as it is required for classification. Instead it found CRIPPLE_STRIKE_OBJECT_FILTER_MELEE"... etc.

And then the last line is "Because of the severity of this error the game will now exit."

So I can't play it. I'm running this game on Windows 10. Is that why? I followed the step by step instructions, EXACTLY the same as Morgulord.

Windows 10 should not be the problem here. Do you have other mods installed? The Easiest thing is, to uninstall rotwk and bfme2, delete possible remaining folders of the two games and install bfme2, patch it to 1.06, install rotwk and patch it to 2.01. Good luck! =)
