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.

Guys, the mod isnt dead... The creator is only clearing their etire drive... Meaning they are deleting absolutely EVERYTHING on their computer... So yeah, basically the mod isnt dead... They might be re-coding or working on the actual release of the mod (not Beta), or might just be busy atm...

Er... Sadly, as this mod is only at Beta... I believe the rest of the missions are un-available... Exactly why in the whole War of The Ring game-type there is a "Preview" of the JR War Of The Ring... So yeah, in my knowledge it isnt wanted, but it does happen as the mod is not complete. Robnkarla is apparently clearing their/his/her pc ((Refering to ROB--n (and)--KARLA)).

VERY GOOD, NICE WORK BEST MOD EVER MADE! I tested all! I have some advices...
In the first place, you orgnizers of the mod have a place we can add some aid (informations, bugs, help)???? You are dead?

so I think everything is very well doned! my opiniõns are:
-the elves and Men of the east, each one should have a unique faction. Not peaking one in the beggining (lose a bit time with the choice)
-You can add, or change the models and icons of some known appearence characters like Thranduil, Azog the Defiler, Gloin, (seen in the Hobbit movies, of course not exacly as the book, but to tag with the movie)
-you can add or change heroes to > Great Goblin (from hobbit
-And try too make the playability more simple, without wasting much time with descovering all the upgrades i have to do to get units and techs, simplify with balance. (much things doesn't mean better, example, too much troops with the elves and menoftheeast, too much buildings for arnor too.
-I don't know if rohan have ents in front of their city!

reporting some bugs:
-AI it's not ok, you know.
-Some units voices don't match with their classes.
-Icons missing
-Arnor Trebuchet men can have a new texture.
-There is a nazgul without voice (I don't know the others)
-Some towers don't have door.

I can help, please call me maybe.

It's not really implemented yet. A friend and I did fix this though, but it's our own private work and we will not release it.
