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

What you have to do is in the settings of the map disable the BFME 1 mode ;)

Thats due to the way the mod works, we need to edit all the maps in order to make them work with the mod, sadly this is not complete in the alpha version (due to lack of time and such)

Thats quite odd... It should be a executable...
Try adding .exe to the end ;)
Make sure to scan it with an anti virus software though, this sounds a bit odd in my opinion :P

Hello The Ridder Clan Mod team

I really like the look of this mod and love to try it out.
I was wondering if this will get updated to 1.08 patch.

You mean if the mod will be adapted to have widescreen functionality? Or what would you want to see from the 1.08 patch? :P

Well in order to run the RC Mod I don't think you really need to have a specific version, but as far as i know 1.06 is the current released version (that it works with that one)

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.
