Hi!


Time for Dol Guldur!


Version 5.1 now available:


Age of the Ring Version 5.1


For a full list of changes, please refer to the CHANGELIST.



HOW TO INSTALL

  1. Download the Installer
  2. Unzip both of the files in AotR_Version_5.0.rar (if you can't open the file, download Winrar or 7zip)
  3. Run installer.exe (if it doesn't work, please run it as Administrator)
  4. The installer creates a shortcut to Age of the Ring 5.0 on your desktop

PLAYING ONLINE

For using T3A:Online, nothing has changed - just make sure RotWK is hooked from the T3A:Online Launcher.

For using Gameranger, the process has been simplified:

  1. Open Gameranger
  2. Go to Edit > Options...
  3. Find and select Rise of the Witch-king
  4. Under Location, select Browse
  5. Browse to your Age of the Ring 5.0 installation folder and select lotrbfme2ep1.exe, then click Open.

To play normal RotWK, reverse this process by selecting lotrbfme2ep1 from RotWK's installation folder.

********** PLEASE READ BELOW **********


  1. This is a full version. You don't need to have previous mod versions installed.
  2. AotR 5.0 does NOT yet support 2.02 v8.2.0. To play Age of the Ring, either don't update to the latest 2.02 version or use the 2.02 launcher to set your Rise of the Witch-king to v8.0.1.
  3. To uninstall Age of the Ring 5.0, simply delete the Age of the Ring 5.0 folder and shortcut.

Well would you look at that. The Eye of Sauron is FIXED on this Unreal Engine remodel. Soon, very soon, he will send his dark agents and use the power of the one ring to bind this mod into full release.

To be fairly honest, if this turns out to be very successful then you might just inspire modders everywhere to do just this for various other old games that certainly do need a little comeback.

Followed.
