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!

I will admit, the approximation was an April fool's joke...
Now before you all get upset, we are working on getting an actual release out there!
This release will be on the 24th of April!
This is 3 weeks from now. Now let me explain a bit what happened, and why this took so long to happen.
We had to recode the entire mod due to an unknown crash that occurs in the Alpha 2.0 version.
Then our original plan was to actually release the mod around the 1st of April, but due to some annoying bug (which thankfully I have managed to fix), we were not able to make that personal deadline.
If everything continues as planned, we will have a release on the 24th. The things we have left to do are fairly trivial, so should not cause any delays...

Now obviously I'm not just going to post this without something nice to show to you loyal fans!

So enjoy this nice trailer we made, just for you guys!

So much has changed and happened in the 4 years, I can't thank you all enough for hanging around and showing support for the mod. Thanks to all of you, we are still working on this project, no matter how long it sometimes takes!

To round off this nice little update, I hope we have not upset anyone extremely with the April Fools' joke last Wednesday, and if we have, I'm sorry for that. But look at the bright side, there IS a release coming REALLY soon! I can bet that for whoever might have been upset that they did not see this coming!

The countdown until the release date has begun!
Which is the 24th of April, if you have somehow missed that...

I wouldn't say better than SEE, since both mods vary quite a lot. But this mod i suppose is fun on skirmishes, although the current alpha release can be slightly unstable at times :)

Quick question:

If I wanted to add the visual changes & fixes for the men of the west cah to another mod/vanilla;

Would I just replace the models and textures with yours or is there more involved?

I'm not exactly sure if the Create-A-Character system is in this alpha release, if not, then yes it is relatively easy to transport it, but you would need to make sure to get all the ini files, models, textures and those kind of things... :P

The v2.00 Alpha offers the Bfme1 mode for the original Bfme1 factions ( Gondor/Rohan/Isengard/Mordor). Elves will be available in the next release.

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.
