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.

Sorry to get your hopes up. It's just a small submod I did. I'm only posting it for a week before I take it down, I'm clearing my PC and the entire drive...

Hey. I tried the new War of the Ring campaign with more territories, which is nice. But it seems to choose maps wrong. I often battled in the same map, even though I rarely battled in the same territory twice (some 2 player desert map). Even when attacking Minas Tirith it chose that map.

P.S. Also, when attacking the new fortress in the bottom, I couldn't win even though I destroyed everything and everyone belonging to the enemy.

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.

The map is Harad. A friend of mine and I well... 'fixed' it. Like, we would download the best maps there is online, send them to each other, edit the files and all. I'll upload it soon, probably. I want this mod to live on, it still holds HUGE promises. But you'll have to download the whole thing.

In other words: We fixed the "Preview" maps. Just the maps. I'll play again to see about the AI and such. Other than that: It is amazing. Barad Dur for Barad Dur, a LARGE Minas Tirith for MT, an Edoras, etc. All of it. Each map is perfect.

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.

Hi there, i downloaded this mod and extracted the RJ ROTWK 1.06 folder to my desktop. Is that all i have to do?Because the mod isn't working, and the instructions don't really say much. I would really appreciate some help.

Right click on the shortcut that was among the files and make sure that it points to the exact location of your RotWK .exe file.
Destination should look like this if you didn't choose a different drive:
"C:\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "C:\RJ_RotWK_1_06"

Is Normal the game close abruptly when you're playing War of the Rings?

Can anyone tell me if this mod will have any further update or mod is dead? thanks

RJ has not been seen for ages. Some people at Revora Forums are talking about filling in War of the Ring with new maps.
