The Dwarf Holds (TDH for short) is a modification for the Battle for Middle-earth, a real time strategy game by EA. We're adding a Dwarven faction based on Erebor, while also tweaking and adding a couple of things to the four original factions to get them up to the level of our new faction. This mod is being developed by Nertea, Matias (Dorian_Gray), M@tt, mike_ and Lauri. The mod is hosted by The 3rd Age, a division of Revora, the creative community.

We don't have any particular control over what Desura does. I would guess they haven't updated their download yet.

Thanks for this. Only recently reinstalled BFME and the dwarves have always been my favorite faction, whether in Middle Earth or Warhammer. In fact a TC of BFME to Warhammer would be cool, with Slayers etc...just a thought. Anyway thanks again!!

Thanks for good mod!
But when I play simply BFME 1 in Skirmish I get Runtim-error.
But, after uninstall TDH, Skirmish regime of BFME 1 again normal work!
With TDH Skirmish regime of simply BFME 1 can play in Multiplayer LAN as "Create the game" (without Runtime-error).

And when I upgrade TDH 0.750-0.755 I get pink textures of arrows of all units, but in 0.750 version textures of arrows is normal.
Therefore I play this mod on 0.750 version

I need help with a certain problem when I try to run this mod with desura.
Game crash

Unknown field 'RotatingTurret' in block 'Weapon'.

Error parsing field 'RotatingTurret' in block 'Weapon' in file 'Data\INI\Weapon.ini', line 1.

Error parsing INI block ' RotatingTurret' in file 'Data\INI\Weapon.ini'.

Because of the severity of this error the game will now exit.

Is there any way to fix this?
