If you've problem installing the mod, take care of few things:
1) If you click on the new Mod shortcut and then you see the old ROTWK game, nothing to worry it's easy to solve it.
It's because the shortcut is directed to different "paths" and folder and doesn't see properly the folder it is supposed to work on.
First step:
If you check the Properties of your shortcut (clicking with the right button of the mouse on it) you may see that the Shortcut has two elements:
A) "To"
B) "From"
"From" have to have the exact name of the Folder of the original ROTWK game. For exemple i've wrote "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king"
Remember that if you've to put your game in D, it will start as "D:\etc.."
Also remember that you may have your folder into something as "C:\Program Files\etc..."
(without the "(x86)" )
Be sure to put the " " and leave no spaces after the first " and before the last "

Correcting problems for "To" it's a bit more difficult, but not hard.
A correct exemple is having
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "C:\Users\Utente\Desktop\BETA3"
As you can see, the first part have to be IDENTICAL at what you wrote after "From".
Then you've to wrote this: -mod
Be sure to check you've left a space before the "-" and after the "mod"
Then you've to wrote the correct path for the folder you've dowloaded.
As you can see, i've decided to put the folder directly on my Desktop and i've renamed the folder with the mod's files "BETA3".
It MAY happens that the location of your mod's folder has a very long name and so you've no space to write it.
In this case, you may do as i did: moving the folder into a location (as the Desktop) that has not a long name.

One last thing, when you've put your CD to start playing, you've to click the shortcut to open the mod.
If you leave the game to start by itself, it may open the original ROTWK game.

crashes like 10 minutes into the game or something, and its the mod that does it, playing bfme without the mod works good :o

Have you noticed if it's repetitive?
I mean.. it happens after you do a specific action each time?
Or if it happens with a specific faction?

I have only played Varden so far, and no its not in a specific action i think, but ill try other factions.

Im getting a MS Visual C++ "the application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way" runtime error.

now i tested another map and played as Empire, and the same thing happened, around 10-20 minutes into the game as before. :(

You attemped playing on different map? Or you use the same one?
Just made a Varden match yesterday (with dowloaded file) and it was all fine ...

You've checked also:
1) if you've open programs that make lots of works and could interfere.
2) if the pc is a bit overheated? (it happened to me sometimes when my pc was overheated that game (but others too) crashed).

Yea, played several different maps. Shouldnt be overheated, i play games like Far Cry 3, Battlefield 3, Company of Heroes etc which are way more needy than bfme. But ill redo it all one last time...really want this to work, what i can tell so far this beta is way better than the previous.

You all should although have great creds for doing this, i love the mod, until it crashes, but its very nice done and its awesome to play BFMe in inheritance enviroment..
You should do maps for the most greatest battles of the inheritance books!

While you do your final check, could you look for any particular event in the game that triggers the crash, somethning like you or the ennemy creating a unit/building or using a power. Also, does it happen with any faction as player/ennemy or with a single faction?

I've made a number of testing yesterday. Checked Carn Dum and Erebor maps: each time game crashed with Empire, but Varden was fine on Carn Dum.
Try to make a game with you as Varden (you play Varden) vs Empire on Carn Dum, position your fortress in south (out of the walls) (i use hard difficulty without help on %).
It should works because with this setting game worked fine.
At this point i THINK it's mainly an Empire Issue with some maps, expecially the ones with map's made fortresses (as Carn Dum and Erebor)

Did as you said, although i accidentally played vs medium empire instead of hard.
It worked. Carn Dum, varden (me) vs empire medium, worked perfect. Seems like you expierienced the same problem as I when you tested then,

Thanks for the help, but do you know what is the problem? Are you able to fix it? :o

I've two options...
First that COULD be an issue that surface when you play on specific maps with already-present fortresses (as Carn Dum or Erebor), that maybe crash because some races generate some incompatibility. BUT, ever focusing on Carn Dum, i've made a test Varden(me,outofwalls) against Dwarven(enemy,inside) and it CRASHED, now made against Elven... i supposed that it had to crash.. and works fine.
I will made further testing trying to focus on the issue.
COULD also be some generated problem by some specific order about making things (building, upgrades etc..)

At the moment i suggest you, if you've a crash on a game, to attempt with another map and don't focus on the same map.

Also thank you for having raised this issue, bit surprised that +400 people dowloaded the mod and NONE ELSE wrote about this problem that surely many could have seen..

Yes it is a bit odd, thought i had done something wrong with the installation, which by the way is a bit tricky.

But ive tested several different maps like minas tirith, shire, etc etc. bot with fortresses and without and this was the first time it worked. Have only been playing varden or empire altough.

But thanks! Let me now if you find a solution, maybe write as an update here or something? thx!

I think it is a really great mod, I love it. Although there are problems with playing in the War of the Ring (When you choose the Empire, you play as a traditional Mordor...). There is also a bug that caused the game to stop working and turn it off. I do not know what's going on...
I thought it would be a nice modification to addition fraction from the Battle for Alagaësia to ROTWK. To running the traditional ROTWK to be able to play as old and new factions. I know that adding new factions is possible, but I do not know how much work it would require this change.

Bug has already been reported but it's hard to understand what it is, clues are welcome. POSSIBLY it's related to some maps, and possibly to the ones with self-installed fortress (carn dum, erebor etc..)

Send me a note: it's because the icon of dowloaded mod probably has a different "path" and doesn't works on the right folders (the original folder of the basic game and the Mod folder).
