The Ridder Clan Mod is a modification for The Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-Earth II & for The Lord of the Ring: The Battle for Middle-Earth II, The Rise of the Witch-King. This mod changes many things to BFME 2. It will add some new factions, a couple of campaigns, many units & heroes, alot of maps and it will improve the CAH System. This mod changes the gameplay making it work a bit more like BFME 1 and how BFME 2 should have been!

No it does not require the expansion, you can run singleplayer without it. For multiplayer you need either the RC Mod CD or the ROTWK cd ;)

You only need to install V1.07 to be able to play the mod, the "Main" installer and such is not longer needed...
So... The installers do not work correctly?
Happy New Year to you too ;)

Perhaps running the updater should fix this, depends on if there are any .BIG files in your install location (of the RC Mod)

"Make an options.ini in the newly created "My Battle for Middle-earth™ II - RC Mod Files" folder. "
"Indeed that should fix it, if not check for the game2.dat in your RC Mod directory.
The folder Kwen is talking about is found in the application data, roaming, folder on your windows drive. (type p;pdata% in your address bar to go there"

This should be enough information for you to try to fix it :P
If it still does not work, let me know!
