1.08 Complete Edition made by Miraak to create a full new Balance based on BFME2 and ROTWK more realistic balance style and on what EA originally promised and showcased with larger battles and with all 4 factions balanced with their own playstyle and all units usefull instead of focusing too much on leadership and some specific units in small battles, also include some cut features to bring new surprises to the game. This is made for players that want to try Bfme1 experience with a more realistic balance, have a BFME1 closer to what EA originally promised or who did not liked the original style.

Is there anything we can do about a "Out of Sync Error" when playing with friends? It just happened randomly during an intense match. Should we be restarting the game after every match type of thing or? There was no lag at all during the match btw. Just randomly ended with that "Out of Sync Error".. :/

Hmm i don't know, never rly ran into those, if the game was long and it happened far into it (and that nobody tried to cheat ofc) i don't think i can do anything about it
the engine is just not the best in the world

maybe try playing with radmin VPN instead of GameRanger of vice versa

Hello there. I love your Patch. I have downloaded every file of this Patch, and moved them to the game file. I only seem to have this one issue. When I play the good campaign and try to start/click on the Amon Hen Mission, it dives in, the screen goes dark and then the game crashes, saying:

"ReplaceModule ModuleTag_RespawnBody was not found for RohanGimli, cannot continue.

Error parsing field 'ReplaceModule' in block 'Object' in file 'maps\MAP GOOD Amon Hen\map.ini', line 76.

Error parsing INI block ' ReplaceModule' in file 'maps\MAP GOOD Amon Hen\map.ini'.
7 addresses:
(unknown)(0):game.dat+8961088 Debug::PostStaticInit+3296
(unknown)(0):game.dat+10449993 Xfer::operator==+133593

(unknown)(0):ntdll.dll+441643 RtlInitalizeExpectionChain+107
(unknown)(0):ntdll.dll+441519 RtlClearBits+191

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

I do not know what to do. I have looked inside the map.big map.ini data of amon hen in line 76 and only found this:

" aka Gimli
Object RohanGimli
this part with vision range, I was not able to portray it properly here in this comment section, but in the code in the file it states: Vision Range 200 with an = after the word Range.
ShroudClearingRange = 200

ReplaceModule ModuleTag_RespawnBody
Body = RespawnBody ModuleTag_RespawnBody_Override
MaxHealth = GIMLI_HEALTH ;BALANCE Gimli Health
PermanentlyKilledByFilter = NONE ;Who kills me permanently?
DodgePercent = 80%


Hope you can help me. Otherwise I will have to buy BFME 1 again, this time with an external drive.

Hey, it seems that you are missing the _WSMaps2.big file (the map.ini file that should be used is in that file, and not in the regular maps.big)
or there is a file in your game folder that replace the content of this file
