The Dwarf Holds (TDH for short) is a modification for the Battle for Middle-earth, a real time strategy game by EA. We've added a Dwarven faction based on Erebor,, while also changing and adding lots of new things to the four original factions to get them up to the level of the new faction. This mod is no longer under active development - but a complete release of Erebor and the original factions is available. The mod is hosted by The3rdAge.net a division of Revora, the creative community. www.the3rdage.net www.revora.net

The Dwarf Holds, a classic BFME1 mod, has been optimized for users with widescreen monitors.



Playing the original TDH on a widescreen monitor meant having to deal with a very close map zoom. This version fixes that, while also upping the mod's FPS to the standard of BFME1 Patch 1.06. To install it, download it here and run the installer.


If you haven't done so yet, make sure to download our BFME1 widescreen UI patch, which fixes the stretched interface experienced when playing the game on a widescreen resolution.


If you don't yet know how to enable widescreen in BFME1:

  1. Open your My Battle for Middle-earth Files folder, easily accessible by typing %appdata% in the Windows Search bar.
  2. Open Options.ini and add the following line: Resolution = 1920 1080 (if you have a different widescreen resolution, type that instead)
  3. Play the game in full Widescreen!

Thanks and have fun playing,
The Dwarf Holds Team & The3rdAge.net Staff

Hello, guys! TDH Rohan peasants and Isengard uruks look like in PJ's "The Two Towers"! Can I use your models in my "Helm's Deep" map? With references to you, of course :)

This mod is extremely good, maybe even the best bfme 1 mod out there, It adds an entire, fully complete dwarf faction that blends in perfectly with the other 4, there are a TON of maps that are all extremely well made, and nearly all units have been re-skined and look amazing. I would definitely recommend it, cause it's only going to get better with each update.
