The Blue Wizard Mod adds a new playable faction, Elves, to the game "The Lord of the Rings, The Battle for Middle-earth(tm)". It also enhances the original factions with additions and changes the gameplay. It has a lot of similarities to the Elvenstar Mod 5.8, the first mod I've ever played and motivated me to get into modding myself. As I and many others have problems getting the old versions installed (and the mod itself was buggy at times), I decided to make my own mod, using similar elements of the mod I loved to play back in the day combined with my own ideas (and in English language as a base). Elves have entered the stage now with the latest update, and the foundation for another new faction is set!

Currently being worked on:
- Another new faction
- Additions to the existing factions
- Bug fixes of the current version

Plans for further releases:
- Fixing bugs of previous versions
- Maybe another faction

I'm still looking for a 3D Artist. That would speed up the development a lot. :)

Alright, the new update is here! I definitely had to rush this because I won't be able to work on it effectively for 7 days or so. I couldn't test this version extensively, so please let me know if there are any (major) bugs present and I will get them fixed as soon as I'm back home!

This update contains a lot of balance changes as well as general improvements that were made based on feedback of players who I played with. There will be more balance updates in the future, so stay tuned.

Head over to the download section to get the update: Moddb.com

Have fun!

Version 0.12 focuses on balance changes. Known bugs were fixed and FX effects were added to some abilities that had none. It's a standalone installation...

unknownfield 'timeafterdamageuntilrepairallowed' in block 'gamedata'.

Error parsing field 'timeafterdamageunitrepairallowed' in block 'gamedata' in file 'data/ini/gmedata.ini',line1.

error parsing ini block' timeafterdamageuntilrepairallowed' in file
'data/ini/gamedata.ini'.

because of the severity of this error game will now exit

Not understanding this really, the base game works fine. I'm guessing their is an error in that line involving building auto heal and unit auto heal ?

Can someone maybe private message me a fix, if so that would be wonderful thank you.

Also, which patch is needed for this mod, maybe that's my issue ?

The mod is based on patch 1.06. Should also work on 1.03, but I've never tested this personally. When does the error occur?

What's the patch you're using? There appears to be an issue with the game version.

Yes... and no. There are issues with the BFME 1 engine that drive me crazy. I've considered to port my mod to BFME2/ROTWK, but then there are things that I dislike about the BFME2 engine as well. Right now there are a few things being changed every now and then, but it's more of a construction site than anything as of now.

I was surprised then played this mod. mages are amazing. i think best posibility is do good create a hero, exept for wizards, in heawens forum is mod rise of wizards what will help you do that and there is mod called summoner wizard. both are genious mod. you can use them.
for me, would be cool make gost faction like uneads or minifaction. you know i am about them who helped aragorn. it will be more fun. if you can create it, do it even for beta release please, even once and remove after if don,t like, it is my dream of childhood...
what is important heroes of undead faction must be truli immortal and only issildurs blade must kill them. but soldiers can be killabla for every faction. if you are interested, i will help with ideas, can sent images and videos. i am not modder, sorry for that. if i could doit, i will newer said it to you.
would be good if wizards can call four or one undead king for defence
think about it. it is not cheat, it was reality at this time.

An undead faction sounds cool in theory. The issue with that would be that it would be entirely imbalanced, plus it would take so much effort. I've been working on a new faction for a very long time now. Spending so much time on a mini faction (and believe me, 3D modelling everything is a lot of work) is not worth it. Eventually you'd either have a broken faction that crushes every other faction, or, if you decide to balance it, you would have an undead faction which is not really undead and therefore killing the concept itself. That's a struggle.

Does the campaign work or is it still a work in progress?

The campaign is not being worked on right now. It *should* work, however if there are any bugs/crashes pls let me know what exactly happens, which mission, the time of the crash and what the associated error message is. I can fix these issues but I have not had the time/motivation to test all campaign maps yet. :p
