By far an amazing mod. Would like that it worked... After 10 minutes of gameplay I crashed, never being able of opening up the game again. Reinstalled the mod and didn't manage to open the game, crashing right at start.

Help please?

You've placed the folder into the old game one? (i suggest to place it in some other place to not make confusion).

The vanilla game works correctly or it crash too?

This crash-at-start it's a never seen before kind of crashing for this mod.

When installed, you have the opportunity of launch the game right away, I did so the first time and not the second. The first time it launched and after 10-15 minutes crashed, besides that time I played I was never ever able to open the game again giving me an error.

The second time, where I didn't open the game with the installation, it opened also the first time but after 15 minutes crashed and was never able to open it again.

Edain Mod and Vanilla works fine without crashes.

There is surely some kind of issue into the installation or in the data you've downloaded: the only crashing issue recorded is probably some unresolved issue related to some specific maps.

You've kept installed Edain Mod while you tried to install and run BattleforA.?
You should try to play after having removed the Edain.

If you already did it, you should.
1) remove everything of battle for alagaesia (including dowloaded folder and checking if there is some left INTO the folder of the game)
2) try to see if vanilla game go fine
3) check to have uninstalled the Edain (after all it's easy to re-install ita)
4) re-download the battle of alagaesia
5) keep care to personally extract the folder into some place you can easily remember (maybe the desktop)
6) keep care to write correctly all the paths for running the mod, according this description (see the comment)

Definitely a great idea, though it would need a lot of improvement. New models and texture improvement would be rather nice and new structures and maps haswell!

Looking forward for new versions, if possible of course!

Ok, first step: check to have Rise of the witch king dowloaded and updated.

then: don't replace file or other stuff: just put all the dowloaded data into a special folder and name it battleofalagaesia

Now, make a copy of the launcher-icon, and check to have similar following proper links in the "property":
(NOTE: the following lines are the one of my pc: you could have them different, for example in "C", rather than "D", and i placed the "battleforalagaesia" folder, directly in the Desktop)
Be careful with typing the " -mod " (without "") putting the proper spaces

From: "D:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "C:\Users\Utente\Desktop\battleforalagaesia"

To: "D:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king"

For the moment, the mod is paused because I don't have the time to work on it anymore. I willl try to work a bit on it during my next vacations but I'm not sure I will have the time.

4minorkinq, who you are?
It's long time i've not heard from Ouranos, (and he's the main developer of the mod), sadly the last time he was very busy with real life.

I could say that's difficult there could be updates or news in brief time.
However would also say that the mod it's enjoyable (i hope) even if not fully finished as originally planned.
