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.

just go to the edain switcher and desactivate the mod, then the rj mod should work.
By the way there is an unofficial new version of the RJ mod hidden on the net, with a campaign for both good and evil with all the maps from the 2 games and the extension and tons of new things for the multiplayer. Will you find it?

go to the folder where the mod is installed, you have one folder named GodoftheWorksFinal and one named
RJ- Mod Launcher 0.1.0 [ENG] [ESP], go in it and open the BFME2.Launcher.Readme.Leeme file, read it and follow the instructions in the launcher.ini

I think it can't be done because Edain told that could generate issues. However if you keep on your pc the installation packet for Edain, it's not that slow ti re-install it.

Ive loved this mod since I first deployed to Afghanistan and took it with me back in 09. My old laptop didnt make it through the sand trap but I have a new DELL and was looking forward to playing this sweet mod again but darn it, it wont even start up. Keeps saying "The Battle for Middle-Earth(TM) has stopped working: A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the prgram and notify you if a solution is available.

Can anyone help me out. I have afew problems with my game.
1) Some models dont work, mostly the custom hero models.
2) some of the Arnor buildings have models but are purple.
3) Gondor fortress has no model.
4) war of the ring crashes game.
The last one I'm not sure if its meant to happen or not, but everything from Angmar is removed, buliding models, unit models, hero models.
I'm pretty sure everythings installed properly.

Provided everything is installed properly, in your mods folder you should have a shortcut call "RJ-RotWk 1.06" which you have to use.
