We bring back a bit of the BFME 1 gameplay style by adding Combo hordes, smaller hordes, leveling buildings... and more! We introduce the Create-a-Character System! Also all of the old Factions are being remade, thus making them more fun to play.

There are quite a few factions in this mod...
Arnor (2 sub factions) & Gondor & Rohan & Elves (2 sub factions!) & Dwarves & Isengard & Mordor & Men of the East (2 sub factions!) & Dol Guldur

Hello fans and followers,

First of all I would like to thank all of you who are still around, and actively following the mod.
You guys have been a great inspiration to me and the rest of the team, so thanks to all of you for that!

Now without further ado:

Today I present to you a nice little video...
...Which took me more time than I had hoped...
It's the castle of the High Elves!
This neat castle is the base which you will get in-game during the BFME 1 mode, whilst playing as the High Elves!
I hope you guys like the movie, I spent quite some time on it, and so has Valaquenta.

Feel free to give comments or suggestions on the things you see!
(Do keep in mind that things you suggest can only be changed if it actually has anything to do with the actual base, so no saying "I don't like the forest outside the base" won't make me recreate the whole movie (But obviously if you don't like the forest, feel free to share!) )

Thats it for now, stick around, we might have other updates to share with you guys in the near future!

-Ridder Geel

I tried and it did not help! Not long ago I tried older versions of fashion and in them the same thing that it could be?

I have had problems similar to these in Vanilla BFME2 and it was EA's 'protection' feature. Sounds like The same thing has happened to RC. You could try a clean install of everything and delete anything related to BFME2 on your computer. (Might be the only way left to go if you want to play bad enough.) And it's 4 minutes & 31 seconds I believe ^^ If memory serves me correctly.

So you get auto defeated? Does this happen to your BFME 2 game too? If not, copy the game2.dat from your BFME 2 game install directory to the RC Mod's install directory.

Я теж маю проблему з mod. За певний час гри приблизно 4 хвилини мене викидає з гри на любій карті з любими фракціями!

The only issue I've had with this mod is that it crashes about 50% of the time when playing lan. Has anyone else had problems similar to these? Maybe in SP or Online? It always says "RC-mod has stopped working" something like that. Using Windows 7 64-bit.

Do you by any coincidence create the WitchKing? What's your game setup? how does the game play out? Please give me as much detail as possible... we have encountered problems like these before, and they are quite difficult to fix without details...

No Witch-Kings, just a regular match 3vs2. (Us vs AI)

Me: Isengard
Friends: Gondor and Rohan

Nothing fancy ;) The map was Belfalas I believe.

This mod doesn't work, it crashes with a runtime error each time. Could it be cause I'm using a crack, as I lost my cd a year ago?

Highest Rated (9 agree) 10/10

After Geel contacted me and provided the fix I gave the mod another chance. At it's current state the mod is doing good. There are some maps that do not support BFME1 and/or 2 mode so they end instantly and few other things that need to be tweaked.

All together, I have decided to give this mod a 10 only because the mod creator is personally taking his time to get the mod working for individuals and I honestly do believe that after few fixes it will be a mod worth playing.

Lowest Rated (2 agree) 3/10

Complicated to install, lacks maps, graphics for certain structures need updates. Multiplayer is far to complicated to be practical.
