Elves heroes taken out/added

Also, we have decided to make MEE a stand alone modification which means that it in and of itself can be modded. This means that you need ROTWK disc to play but it also means that we have a lot more flexibility with the UI to make it more of a stand-alone game.

This also means to make it more of an EA style installation there will be new maps made by a fellow named Bofur as well as any other maps we can get our hands on.

Themed UI's:
Themes are essentially what the UI (main menus, in game menus etc will look like)

  • During the first release the UI will compensate for the Rohan release, this means a Green/Yellow theme will take place.
  • During the second release the UI will compensate for the Arnor release, this means a Grey/White theme will take place.
  • During the third release the UI will compensate for both Rohan & Arnor Bug fixing, this means dark green theme will take place.

Also, during the third release a few extras will be either added. This may even include a specialized launcher and include third party online support through T3A: Online (once ROTWK is supported) and or Gameranger.

The Lord of the Rings, Middle-earth Extended Beta v1 shall be released within the coming days/weeks.

Thank you for reading and I hope you will subscribe to stay updated with this mods progression!
