BFME: Reforged Update №2: Q&A and UI


We are happy to finally let you take a look at our new User Interface which will be present in game! It was inspired by your feedback left on Facebook page and the questions following were asked on our YouTube channel, and your little contributions finally lead to the creation of this video. Enjoy!



After a number of serious conversations and arguments as well as receiving particular feedback, we decided to heavily base the new interface on the one seen in the very first BFME game. What we did is simple: get to know how the UI of BFME works, then redraw everything in 4k resolution, apply and thoroughly set it up. Now we are proud to share our nerve-breaking achievement with you!

There is more to tell you. After hearing a couple of decent ideas we decided to implement them into the Isengard spellbook which by this point is almost ready. Today we'd also like to share with you some details about one particular spell which is going to replace the Dragon Strike ability. It's known that dragons are not affiliated with Isengard, yet we sought a similar replacement, something fiery and devastating. Suddenly we got an idea and the replacement spell is now known as The Burning Engine.

The spell summons the fire machine from the ground which starts erupting fire from its vents. The rotation makes it almost impossible to dodge the incinerating death if some units were left untouched by the initial attack. This spell might seem purely out of place or even non-canonical, yet indeed it's purely based on the story told by Merry and Pippin after the destruction of Isengard.

"When Saruman was safe back in Orthanc, it was not long before he set some of his precious machinery to work. By that time there were many Ents inside Isengard: some had followed Quickbeam, and others had burst in from the north and east; they were roaming about and doing a great deal of damage. Suddenly up came fires and foul fumes: the vents and shafts all over the plain began to spout and belch. Several of the Ents got scorched and blistered. One of them, Beechbone I think he was called, a very tall handsome Ent, got caught in a spray of some liquid fire and burned like a torch: a horrible sight."

The other spells are ready and soon we will release a video, showcasing our new spellbook! Please, feel free to share your thoughts with us about this particular spell or the user interface we made! We always welcome fresh and interesting ideas. Stay tuned for the next Update video for it won't be too far behind!

You can always find out what's new on our YouTube channel or the Website.

With sincere passion towards all fans and BFME,

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.

Hi. I'm looking for someone who went to Eastern University in 2005. You sat on your laptop around lunchtime (could have been dinner-time) near the dining hall. We used to talk. I think you created mods or custom maps for Battle for Middle Earth, and I think you worked at McDonalds. If you get this message please reach out to me. My name is Eric Martin. I want to catch back up with you and have forgotten your name to look you up. Thanks.
