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

15 comments by Ridder-Geel on Apr 24th, 2015

We have come to it at last, the great release of our mod!

4 years have passed since the last battle was upon them. In those 4 years the Elves secretly prepared for the war that was to come, training their best units, bolstering their defenses and calling upon the Valar to withstand the incoming onslaught. Now, as the drums of war sound in the distance, the Elves must bolster their resolve once again, for they must not let for they must not let the enemy break through, they must defend... The Last Haven, or all shall be lost.

After 4 years of absence, the Ridder Clan Mod team (which has since the last release been reduced to two actual team members, hence the lack of updates and all that) proudly presents The Last Haven, a mod which will expand Battle for Middle Earth 2 unlike any other mods before it. This release will specifically concentrate on the Elven faction whilst keeping most of the things the official game added.

Mod Highlights :

- The High-Elves have risen to defend Middle Earth!
The Elven faction has been completely overhauled, featuring new units, new building, new heroes and even a new Fortress , you'll have to see it for yourself.

- What shall we choose?
The Last Haven introduces a new system, called the Vote System which at the beginning of any battle allows you to choose between your gameplay style, the starting resources or the unit and building production rate. Do note that once you've chosen and committed your options you cannot change them.

- History repeats itself : Battle For Middle Earth Mode
As part of that voting system there is an option which allows you to choose between Battle For Middle Earth I or II play style. Choosing Battle For Middle Earth I allows you to play it exactly as in the original Battle For Middle Earth game.

- Rise against the enemy with your own Hero!

With the new and improved Create-A-Character System you can create your own Elven hero. Use your imagination to create not only a Hero for the Elves or Men, but a Champion for the Free Peoples of Middle Earth.

Known Installation issues:
*Please make sure your launcher is CLOSED when updating, otherwise this can prevent it from being updated!!!
*If the launcher did not update to a version with a button on it, download it from 'https://www.dropbox.com/s/baokmvx0065srla/RC Mod Launcher.exe?dl=0 ' and copy it to where the launcher is.
*You may need to copy Game2.dat from your BFME 2 installation place to the game folder in the RC Mod installation directory! (if you download the patch/mod after this is posted it should not be a problem)
*If you wish to run the singleplayer (without needing to mount the RC Mod cd, or use the RotWK cd) please download the singleplayer files from here: 'https://www.dropbox.com/s/1d5fi6dzabfu1rf/RCMod - Singleplayer.zip?dl=0' These can be put into the game folder in the installation directory, and run manually to play singleplayer.

Known issues:
*No BFME1 AI
*Elrohir,Elladan,Cirdan,Galdor were removed due to some bugs
*No Lore-master powers

*Some High-Fortress upgrades do nothing
*High-Elven Heroes kept their original portraits
*BFME1 mode does not contain camps

Expect these bugs to be resolved in the following days/weeks. We advise not saving games during this period otherwise they might not work afterwards.

As this our release for almost 4 years and many things have changed so we encourage people to re-rate our mod after they tried it!

There are still many things to do so we appreciate any feedback from you guys! Here, on Revora, or even personal PM, we are looking forward to making this mod even better.

Happy Playing!

P.S: Today (the 24th) is also Valaquenta10’s birthday!

The normal game.dat from in the game folder should work just fine. Do you have the SPGame.dat in the game folder?
And do you run the RCMod - Singleplayer.exe after that?
Obviously it won't launch from the launcher in it's current state.
Also you need the rotwk cd mounted or the rc mod one, since u mention multiple cds?

Well this might be 'bad' news for you, but it seems to work fine here, extracted the zip in the game folder, and ran the RC Mod - Singleplayer.exe and it worked fine...
Have you checked if game2.dat is in the correct place?

How about instead of trying to fix it like this, we do it via PM? The comment system on ModDB can be a bit messy with problems like these, same goes for anyone experiencing problems with either mounting or playing the singleplayer version! :P

So... you made the mistake of installing the RC Mod at the same place as the original game? The installer even states that it must not be installed at the same place as the original games :) Install it in a location you want it to be, and i advise not moving it afterwards :P

Ok, and game2.dat is in the game folder now?
I also assume you installed the mod with administrator rights? (quite sure my installer requires you to, but still)

Highest Rated (11 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.

Regards,

Chernobog

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