I downloaded the mod but I can't find how to play with the new "siege system", fortress and all that. For me it's still the regular gameplay. Have I missunderstood something and it's not out yet? And also, is there a release date for the english version? Many thanks.

New siege system and English version will be in a future version 4.0. You have to wait a little longer.

There are bugs in the game because units are able to walk through walls, they stand near a gate and and some times I cant kill them I have to open that gate just to make them move. And another problem some times while playing, The screen/mouse wheel roles down and moves by its self, you know how you use the mouse to view the battle field and you move it to the edge of the screen ? Well its doing that by its self and I know its not my mouse because my mouse is brand new so that has to be a bug! "Gnomi" and there is a problem with the FellBeast. I noticed that when I use the WitchKing to attack some times the Fell Beast misses its target, heres a hint" Like when I tried to attack a group of spearman the dam thing missed its target and my morgul riders got there *** kicked I was ****** all that money waste so Gnomi Those are the Bugs I found So far.

"units are able to walk through walls"
This is because of the stupid BfmE II engine. It shouldn't happen now with the new walls.
"I cant kill them I have to open that gate just to make them move"
Never had such a problem?But probably we won't be able to do anything against it.

"The screen/mouse wheel roles down and moves by its self"
Perhaps the ground of your mouse is a bit rough?
THe other point is that sometimes it happens when you use curios combinations on your keyboard (+mouse) or you change to the desktop and back. There is nothing we can change about it. This problem appeared since BfmE I and is an engine problem... nothing we can do about it.

The last thing also never happened to me before. But the fellbeast has an aoe, so it can attack all units, even own of course. I wouldn't call this a bug. Just don't use this combination this way.

Yo creo que el juego e falta un modo, donde se pueda jugar con toda la comunidad del anillo. También creo que podría haber un opción donde se pueda jugar con todos los héroes del bien y del mal. Por último creo que gandalf debería tener mayores habilidades como por ej. invocar a las águilas y montarlas. Saludos

Gnomi - the computer opponents will be more challenging at 4.0 ? like thy will close the gates when enemy troops are coming ;or thy will use siege weapons more better at siege maps : for example, using of siege ladders and Siege towers ? thx.

another thing I want to ask that about multiplayer - so called ridiculous players' rules at edain mod at tunggle battles. I entered a battle with Imaldris race; I was mordor. I was using siege weapon behind and the troopers are in the front against the Imaldris archers. After that , this person started to say- " you cannot use siege weapons against to ground troops ...." I said that " he wtf mate really - you have better archers as elfs and you camping at a current position and you saying me - don2t use siege weapons against ground troops ? " then this person started to say me noob.... who the hell is putting these stupid rules at edain multiplayer- it is non-sense really. As a player we can use everything that game has given us... Gnobi would you say some words to these kind of players really man ? thy assume themself something ;but there are no such non-sense rules normally. It is a strategy game already !!! thx.

at 4.0 edain patch, will you bring all new kind of stuffs and units and contents from new lord of the rings movie to edain too ? thx

The computer will close the gates and will use siege weapons in the next version.

There are some player made rules, as many unbalanced units exist in edain. Those rules just forbid some tactics as they were much too strong (I personally play with nearly no rules if I play, but I'm notplaying so often)

I can't forbid those players how to react...as we're no admins in tunngle they can do whatever they want there and we can't punish them for that, sorry. :/

Will you bring more new races to Edain 4.0 ;or at further patches ? For example : Easterling and Haradrim races ; or elfs first age elf races ;or other human races (arnor etc. ) ?

Isengard cannot able to build - rock walls like at isengard map ; or normal walls from the game ? it is same for mordor too

Mordor can build black gate ?and we can put soldiers on it like from the movie ? or at black gate map ingame - we can open and close the black gate and putting units on it ?

we still can able to build buildings anywhere right?

there will be more new units at every race ?

will you bring back to buşld the eye of sauron tower or saruman tower to game again? I really miss them to build ingame again. if you bring back eye of sauron tower to game again- would you make the eye looking around and giving buffs to troops like how it was from the movie ? this idea is realy nice to bring edain mod mates ?^^

I have a cool suggestion/idea about extra uruk balista siege weapon. From 2nd film at lord of the rings, while attacking to rohan's helms deep - uruk throwing a balista arrow with chains support ( which is impossible or hard to cut the chain ;or drop this unique ladder ;so rohans didn't able to stop uruk invasion at the highest wall/tower kind at the castle- at the lastest defense ) to send their soldiers ( it is like a ladder ;but more advance /hard to destroy and cooler than normal ladders ) to rohan's the most high wall/ tower at the castle in the film version. If edain mod mates bring it to game it will be really awesome ^^. any of edain mod mates would think about my this idea ;and reply about my question plz ? thx.

You have to build sauron - while leveling up he gains every 3 levels the possibility to get an upgrade.
Every upgrade gives you access to one of the three subfactions Minas Morgul, Dol Guldur or Cirith Ungol.

You can build a troll with some gold on a vehicle behind him in the fortress - you have to put it near to a treasury trove and use the first ability of this building on this unit - the unit will get destroyed and you'll get smaug for a short amount of time.
If you bring the ring to the treasury you will be able to build smaug without a time limit.

Hi all, I'm a member of a group of italian players that loves battle for the middle earth 2 - Rise of the Witch King and we love edain mod. We use the last version 3.8.1. We are a gruop of informatic developer and we want to increase edain mod with an italian translation that can be used by other italian players.
I want know if is possible what is the name of the file of the edain mod in which is contained the texture of the game that is only german. Is "germanpatch201.big"? Or englishpatch201.big? I opened these file with the program FinalBig and I extract the file lotr.csf for the firs, and the file lotr.str for the second. I chenged those file with an editor such as csfeditor and then I replace them to the original, but than if I start the game tha chenge doesn't work, there aren't.
What are we doing to translate? What is the file of german lang that we will change?
Thank you for all.
