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.

Can someone recommend a site with the RotWK 2.01 patch because whenever I try to get it from the game I get a message saying I don't have administrative rights to it, also I tried getting it from Filefront and it seemed to have downloaded correctly but when I try multiplayer I get the message again so I guess not. If there is no other way to get the patch I would appreciate a quick answer so I can just give up on the 3 mods for this game I wanted to get.

You do realize you can delete stuff in your C Drive and the mod is just 1 folder?

So things i would like to see added to this mod

1) Every faction have an equal number of heroes
2) All heroes to get their power tree filled out rather than having 3 or 4 open slots
3) Would it be possible to add some of the powers you gave to the custom heroes u made as options for are own customs ?
4) The good campaign is currently pretty buggy just curious if this will be fixed.
5) Also was looking forward to the mirkwood faction as all the detail you put into lorien and rivendell was just amazing work this is easily the best mod ive ever seen for any game i have played keep up the good work. This mod is greatly appreciated

The mods creator has been gone for 5 years and we as a community try to do stuff for it (that is what the more recent stuff is). So anything extensive like that would require multiple volunteers and you would likely have to gather them yourself as well.
