BFME 1 - (patch) 2.00

by sam-the-brave

latest update: 2015-10-14 02:56 PM



(nothing here in download section because of its size: 2 files 92mb total)

patch 1.06 etc required

direct link:

if it doesn't work try it in an other browser or try right click and save linked content to destination

how to 'install':

put it in the bfme installation folder: *\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)

where the other patches are up to patch 1.06

this mod makes hardly used units like elves, mumakil etc. more attractive and brings
in some new units and abilities with (hopefully) not affecting the game balancing;

balancing data is below; some new maps added;
multiplayer colors are maintained to the new units

if some problems or bugs occur, please comment or leave me a message so i can fix it

the Witch-king doesn't get his Flamesword on foot because it makes him to strong

Black Uruks are NOT moved to Mordor because this has strong effects on game balancing.

Consider them as a gift from Sauron to Saruman ;)

i called the "mod" patch 2.00 because it is meant to be a patch for the multiplayer

have fun playing it!

======AI Update======

more difficult AI:

- Mordor recruits more Trolls and Siege Towers

AI uses now all new units and abilities

new mumakil added

some other tweaks

--- v2 changes ---

Witch-king can now unmount the Fellbeast

(code from the Shadows of Evil – Mod by GothmogTheOrc)

By switching between mounted and unmounted, Witch-king gets full healt again (no other way to let him unmount)

that's why you have to enable this ability first by selecting the Toggle Enabler and wait some (long) time.

And it tages 10 secs to unmount/mount

Both just to avoid toggling only to get full health again when damaged

Royal Guard & Knights of Dol Amroth

-> restricted special units with nice effects

(Black) Uruk Hai

-> new Uruk Hai added to Isengard (and adding new strong infantry units to mordor makes Mordor imba.. )

Morannon Orcs

-> Morannon Orcs added to Mordor

Olog Hai

-> larger (and more expensive) troll added to Mordor

does same damage impact as a troll swinging a tree already when created; that's why you can't/don't need to equip him with a club


-> Gwaihir added to Gondor

Theoden horse skin moved to original skin again


to maintain Merry and Pippins skinchange, use the cloak ability before they reach
lvl 5 (otherwise it might switch back to normal), same for Aragorn but it shouldn't
be that problem to use any of his abilities before he reaches lvl 10 ;)


it wasn't possible to me to create an asset.dat (because of several technical reasons) so i had to re-use not

used skins and did many skin exchanges; it could look wierd in worldbuilder but everything is fine ingame

appena finisco la prima campagna del male, a Isengard, mi da una sorta di errore e mi fa chiudere tutto. Patch 1.06 installata, ho aggiunto anche i file che aumentano i CP, può darsi sia quello a rovinare tutto?
