Hey all,

As you may know, Shadow and Flame was cancelled at the start of this year due to the team moving on to Age of the Ring. We are now releasing the last internal version that was worked on. There are a bunch of bugs still remaining, but the mod is quite playable.

If you want to use parts of this mod for your own project, these simple conditions apply:

  • Private use: you can do whatever you want.

  • Public use: If you want to use our work in a public release, you will need to ask permission by sending a PM to MathijsRevora and provide credits afterwards.

The mod does not come with an installer. To install the mod, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have BFME1 patched to 1.06
  2. Unzip the downloaded file and move SaF.BIG into your 'My Battle for Middle-earth Files' folder. To find this folder, type %appdata% into your Windows search bar.
  3. After that, create a duplicate shortcut for BFME1 on your desktop, right click, go to Properties, and add the following to the text in your Target field: ' -mod SaF.big', after which the text should read "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)\lotrbfme.exe" -mod SaF.big, substituting C:\ for whatever drive it says for you.
  4. Play the mod and ignore the bugs.

Regards,
The Defunct Shadow and Flame Team

How can I fix the crash that occurs when trying to launch the map Amon Hen when playing the Evil Campaign ? It says that some line refering to respawning Gimli canot be found in the data file. My point is this: can I manage to do it by myself for personal use because i will like to finish the campaign:D

I used my free time to complete the BFME 1 game with this "Shadow and Flame" Mod and I must say that it was totally fantastic, thanks for that! And the funny part was when I complete the game, was that I so this " I.imgur.com " It's the crediting part with all of the name that have created this mod, awesome ^_^ But again, thanks for all of your hard work on this great mod!

These are great news dude. Thank you for this. Btw, we are fixing all bugs in SaF with my friend. There are approximately 100 bugs. And making a cool AI. Now AI uses all spellbooks (including active spells) and recruits all heroes, units and builds all structures.

Hooo boy those credits are a little old. I forgot someone even did them. DúnedainRanger was a lot more than a mapper for the last version. :P

I thing this mod has future. It felt good to play with another evil faction. Great work and I hope that you release the next versions soon.
