I followed the instructions, but once I try to start the game, it shows me the two little screens with Carn Dûm on it and then gives me an error saying some things are missing and that "because of the severity of the error the game will now exit".

I'm having Game crash issues too.

Seems to be a problem with the 'Data\INI\Weapon.ini' file.

Everything seems alright, I get the BOTTA homescreen, but when I choose, skirmish, the screen pops to the skirmish-screen for a second, but before any map-names load, it crashes, this now also happens with the normal ROTWK or Edain, I now can only play bfme2 without expansion or mod, I think I messed up with he properties-thing? I don't undestand code or anything like that, can someone please help?

Remove all data except options.ini in the appdata rise of the witch king folder and you should be okay. something crashes with the save files etc. Just backup and then you can try to put them back one by one in case you really need a map or create a hero data or something

Hello,

I would love to play this mod, but I have some issues when trying to install it. For instance: when I have to copy the Target from the ROTWK Icon, it is not there when I select it's Properties. Wouldn't it be possible to create some kind of launcher like Edain did?
Also: is it even possible to play this mod when having Edain installed?

Thank you, for your work and the answer in advance!

As he neglected to answer I resolved it on my own by re-installing the mod and the patch.

Hi Scotty,

I seem to have a similar problem. Not everything is pink with me but the map is and the minimap in the Skirmish menu is as well. Can you tell me how you fixed it, please?

Thanks!

I have only one question guys: How to build uruks with Isengard ?
Because I have all te requements, but I can't build an uruk pit lol, because its missing from the builders bar, also warg pit and siegewors missing too.
I have excavations, and breeding, and the 10 power spell what allowes me to build advanced units, so I dont know what'S is missing but something is wrong.
I have dowloaded the lastest patch for the mod from here, and installed as it was described.
The mod is working because i got the diferent ingame screen and the diferent heroes ect..

Help me plese.

Pls make an installer for it, like the other mods have.
That way your installer can put all the files in the right place

Guys just do EXACTLY what he says
Dont use "extract here" or "extract files"
Open the zip, Grab the files and put them into your C:/ file.
If you un-zip it with "extract here" or "extract files" the game will miss a lot of the files needed and your icon will be a blank page.

Mine opens with breezip as a default and I am unable to move them to another zip. When I load up the game it plays but it is missing a lot of stuff.
