Description

~~~~~~BOTTA Mod-version 2.0~~~~~~ New version brings: - New system of base building - Reworked Angmar faction - New and reworked skins and models from the ''Hobbit'' movies - Number of bug fixes, mainly the forged blades FX bug - Number, maybe unnoticable, balance changes - and some small surprises, but that is for players to figure out


Version 2.0 is finally released

CaH system still doesn't work, and i doubt it will ever work again.
Also Dwarven AI doesnt work properly.
The version still contain some bugs but that will be fixed in the next patch fix update.

Installation: Delete the old BOTTA folder and replace it with the new one. The new folder is named BOTTA 2.0, just rename it to BOTTA and thats it.

Have fun

Sorry to be so rude but "Installation is the same as in the previous version. Unzip BOTTA.rar to your C drive and use the old icon." Whoever wrote this must be completely retarded or something, how the f*ck are we supposed to know the installation and WHAT THE F*CK YOU TALK about "old icons"?

I found the way out ALL listen up!
1) place botta_2.0 in your c:// and rename it as "BOTTA" (without the quotes)
2) Right click on your RotWK.exe and change the target to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod C:\BOTTA "

thanks you are actually the only one here who made it clear to me, however you cant change the target on the exe, you need to get the shortcut to the exe first then change the target like you described

UPDATE 2) Gondor's spearmen are unable to change from porcupine formation and so they are useless and unable to move

I will not continue to post bugs and fixes, this mod isnt finished not even at 30%, I dont know why you released this version so soon without testing out yourself.
Play a game against brutal with each faction and notice the bugs - fix them and then release the version..

In the movie, trolls were quiet powerful, in the battle of the black gate one troll almost killed Aragorn, though that was in the movie...so i see why they are so powerful in the mod

Lol the Elves are extremely overpowered, why build an army if you have an army of heroes with brutal spells?
And on the other hand the dwarven AI don't work..

So you're saying that the mod has no bugs and it needs no fixes ?
I was a bit harsh, I like BOTTA, But I think you were a bit hasty of releasing this version, the previous version was better on the quality subject.
