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.

Is there a way to get the camera to zoom out a little further? I tried to mess with the gamedata.ini a little but to no avail.
Great mod btw, enjoying it a lot, even though the zoom is a little low for a 1920 1080 screen.

I think you can do it only in the editor when you edit the map. There should be min and max zoom levels but I don't remember exactly where you can adjust them, sorry. Maybe you figured out by now :)

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...
