the change list is blank since this is version 0.1
The next evil faction has already been decided to be the Deep.

Not to be pushy or anything, but do think updates will we be farther apart with more than one faction in each or just releasing them ASAP?? Also I've been looking forward to this mod for a long time now so thank you for such a great job!!!

I basically want each faction to be at a certain stage before releasing them and I usually focus on 2 at a time, Rivendell is the closest to being ready atm with the Deep and "other faction" close behind.

Also future major updates should be closer together than the first release because I'm not working on 5 factions and setting up the everything now.
It'll be 1-3 factions plus bug fixes and other stuff.

you finish download you extract the files with 7zip and put the files inside C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth Files\ then you run the launcher if you are installed in the default directory for Windows 32bit select 32, for 64bit select 64 and if you've installed the game in a different directory use the game directory changer.
The directory change simply opens a a text file and let's you change the directory.
ie if your game is installed in C:\BFME\ then you type "C:\BFME\" and make sure there are no spaces or other characters on that line hit save then close the text file.
One you've set up your directory simply follow the prompts
1 - Lone Wolf Return of Shadow
then press any key a couple times and the game will launch with the mod.

If it's not working try Running as Administrator, check you have Full control over your folders.

The mod is so great! It's so nice to have a new faction and Lorien are great!

There is no HD widescreen resolutions, is there a way to solve that? And also it would be nice to be able to zoom out further. My main concern though is that I cant move my screen to the left with the mouse. Only up/down and right. So I have to use the arrowkeys to navigate and thats pretty anoying.

I've got a problem. I played the mod and it worked great, Isengard is cool and Morder is a bit finicky to get a handle on. But after quitting and trying to play it the next day I always end up getting an error of some kind before it can start.

It called an Exception Access Violation. I don't know why this didn't come up the first time but nothing I've tried makes it work. I'm hoping you or someone else here can help.

^ That is when I downloaded it from Moddb. I installed it here but I didnt get any of the new maps and the AI seem to not know how to use the new factions. The AI only knows how to control the base factions. How do I fix this as well?
