How are you supposed to run this mod? I just run lotrbfme.exe inside `EA GAMES/The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)` and it boots normal BFME. Installer runs just fine, and I can see the ExtendedEdition0.975.big file where it should be.

Run the shortcut of the mod that was created on your desktop by the installer.

I'm on Linux so it didn't actually create a shortcut.. Can you paste the command the shortcut usually creates?

I have almost no knowledge about Linux, but the command to run the mod is " -mod ExtendedEdition0.975.big". It is added at the end of the path in the Target box in shortcut Properties on Windows. I think it should be possible to use it in Linux's Command Prompt.

Worked perfectly! Thanks so much!

For future readers, just do

wine lotrbfme.exe -mod ExtendedEdition0.975.big

Runs no problem!

Love the mod so far! Though I want to know if the new faction AI is scripted, as whenever I play with Gundabad, Evil Men, or Elves as the opposing faction, they they just dont build or do anything

It is clearly stated in the version 0.975 news article that new factions do not have AIs.

You need to install the game itself, then install patches 1.03, 1.05 and 1.06 and nothing more than that. You can download the patches here:
