I don't know, but I'm seeing a pattern.

Install BFME1 and patch up to and including 1.06. Don't install HD Edition into the installation folder. Then launch it from its own shortcut. That's all.

Do you know if there is a way to get this to run through Steam? When I add your shortcut as a game in my Steam library, the game gets launched without the HD version.

You have to go to SET LAUNCH OPTIONS and then add:

-mod "C:\Users\**USERNAMEHERE**\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth Files\HDEditionv1.0.big"

Out of curiosity, is The Elven Alliance mod compatible with this? Or is that a no-go?

No, this is a mod, just like TEA. You could probably combine them without too much effort, but that would require modding skills.

I've started to play the campaing after many years, I do remmember the first time I played the game aragorn was wearing the fellowship clothes then after a while the two towers and finally the return of the King ones but now is wearing the return of the King ones since moria, is not a big thing but I Will like to Know how to make aragorn to wear the three types of skins. Great mod btw.

We have heard this a lot, but HD Edition does not contain any lines of code, it only replaces art files 1 on 1. So it seems Aragorn wore that outfit in the original game too.

To change it, you'll need to do some basic modding. For that, check out tutorials on The3rdage.net and post on the forums there if you get stuck.

I guess the Texture Pack from RoR is obsolete?

It keeps saying to install patches 1.03 and 1.05 before installing 1.06, which is needed to install HD Edition, I proceeded with the download even though it said it, but it appears it's not working due to my error. I know for sure I did the downloads for patches 1.03 and 1.06, any help?

I've also taken notice that Rangers and Warg Riders are textureless (pink). Not the warg, but the rider is.

What about the texture of the 'Heavy Armor' upgrade for the Isengard Crossbowmen?

To me, seems that the texture remains the nonupgraded one, even if they could be upgraded, statistically.

When I install the game and try to access a pop up windows says:

"the item `lotrbfme.exe` that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. Do you want to delete this shortcut?"

Do you know how can I fix it? Plx help

Hi
here is my problem: I all installed the game well with the patch all working. but when I launch the game in HD edition with the shortcut that appears on the desktop after installation it launches the normal version (there is not marked HD edition in the menu and the texture is always the same)
The file is installed in C: \ User \ my name \ AppData \ roaming \ my battle for the Middle earth Files. I restarted the complete game station and patch at least 5 times with the same result.
Help me please.

PS: the download file of the HD version may be corrupted ??

Install "tBfMe" by mounting and running it
Use "keygen" to generate a key code for the game (or use your own one)
Once game is installed, run "LotrBfme-65539-english" patch 1.3
Then run "T3AOnlineBFME1_Patch1.06_AIO"
- Check the Zoom Mod and Widescreen mod if using a widescreen (This also insatlls no disk crack)
After downloaded and install complete, run "BFME1HDEdition_setup" to install HD mod
Once complete, run the "BFME1 HD Edition" shortcut from your desktop

If game does not launch, you must manually create the "options" folder in the Roaming folder
To do this, follow these instructions:

Note that you must enter your resolution that you are running on your comuter, in my case its "1920 1080"

Create a new notepad document and paste the following in it...

AllHealthBars = yes
AlternateMouseSetup = no
AmbientVolume = 50
AudioLOD = High
Brightness = 50
FixedStaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
HeatEffects = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
IsThreadedLoad = yes
MovieVolume = 70
MusicVolume = 70
Resolution = 1920 1080
SFXVolume = 70
ScrollFactor = 50
StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
TimesInGame = 55
UnitDecals = yes
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 70


Once you have done that, save the file as "options.ini" (make sure its a .ini not a .txt file)
Copy this file into this directory "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth Files"
Trying launching the shortcut on your desktop and hopefully all works!

HAPPY GAMING!

DagidyDK thank you for your answer but i have already done all this and i have all followed exactly to the letter. For my part my problem is that once I click on the HD version to launch the game it launches the standard version (with all the patches) but not the HD eddition. No error message is displayed on normal operation (no invisible unit bug ect)
