RJ-RotWK 1.06 BETA has been released!

After the year+ wait, the next public beta has been released. All of the details can be found by following the link and browsing the news topics:

So much mod to explore and enjoy with 10 factions (Rohan, Men of the East, & Arnor Added, Elves split out), combo hordes, the more than 30 maps added, new map play styles that blend BFME1 & BFME2, over 35+ RotWK maps with the new camera system and skies. Explore Middle Earth once again and rediscover the joy of BFME! (All screenshots below were taken directly from actual gameplay!)

For the short term, the mod without an installer is available. I'll be creating and uploading one with the installer.

Thank you for playing, and a huge thank you goes out to all of the team members and the beta testers to make this possible,
Robert J.

Any update on this mod recently? Pity the creator abandoned it. It was just awesome.

Well considering RJ is likely not coming back I suggest we as a community take it upon ourselves to try and tie up loose ends. The first and foremost should be the acquiring of war of the ring maps to fill the missing territories. Then fix pictures for units and structures that may be missing. Finally any balancing and bug fixing that may be required. It may seem like a long task but we can all come together and make this work. After all look at what the freespace community did by themselves.

I've heard that there was a Chinese edited/implemented mod of RJ, but i failed to find a link (there was an old one that allowed no dowload).
It's a pity because with Edain Mod, RJ it's the best one..

Based on what I found by playing the mod with my friend is that those war of the ring maps were not implemented (for us at least the placeholder map in most territories was the dead marshes) in the mod yet. The only way to fix this would be making or finding those maps online and putting them in war of the ring ourselves.

That would be awesome. Beside for the maps being chosen incorrectly, the mods WotR campaign is really improved, but it does take a lot away not feeling you own any of the forts once you're attacked there.
