How to patch v1.01.0011 and widescreen.

Installers Tutorial 13 comments

Step 1:

Download the patch here: Moddb.com.

French version: Moddb.com

Step 2:

If you don't have the original Rings.exe execute file, download it here:

Forums.videogames101.net

and paste it into your gamefolder (making a backup is never a bad idea).

Step 3:

If you have an english version of the game but not the US release. You need to replace a few files first with these:

Moddb.com

Step 4:

The gamefolder needs to be organized correctly. The path should read exactly: "C:\Program Files\Liquid Entertainment\War of the Ring(tm)". If it doesn't, fix it.

Step 5:

Now you should be able to run the patch without any problems. I recommend right-clicking it and choosing "Run as Admin".

Step 6 (optional, but recommended):

Get the widescreen-hacked Rings.exe for 1.01.0011 only:

Forums.videogames101.net

and paste it into your gamefolder (making a backup is never a bad idea).

Step 6: Enjoy!



Tips and Tricks:

Here's a little trick for you who needs to choose your desired resolution everytime you start up the game:

First, make sure you have applied your desired resolution at least once.

And now, everytime you start up the game, just simply click Options -> OK. It will set your desired res for you. This skips the hassle of choosing a resolution everytime you start the game.

Emulate Windows XP and just put the gamefiles there. Hopefully the DirectX drivers will work.

This is unfortunately a very, very common problem with the game engine. Try to use as few towers and units you can.

But i completed the campaign mode by saving the gane every 10 min. Thank you for such a game. I remember playing it 12 years ago. I have played this game multiple times but this time was awesome. Some units like khamul was overpowered but overall game was awesome. Thank you man.

Your copy of the game must be corrupted, especially if you have a disc or a rip. Find another one.
