***If you downloaded the mod before 9 June 2024 download the mod again so you have latest version***

Installation: Put morecp.big into your C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm) folder
Uninstall: Just delete morecp.big

About: This mod changes the command point limit (population limit) in skirmish and the campaign.
For good factions, the command point limit is now 600 (For the campaign it now starts at 300 and caps at 600).
For evil factions, the command point limit is now 1200 (For the campaign it now starts at 600 and caps at 1200).

Alternative installation (shortcut version):
This will make it easier for you to play other mods/multiplayer without compatibility issues
1: Put morecp.big into your C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm) folder
2: ensure file name extensions are enabled then rename morecp.big to morecp.big.shortcut
3: create a shortcut of the .exe (right click lotrbfme.exe and select create shortcut)
4: right click the shortcut and select properties
5: Change the target field to "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)" -mod "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)\morecp.big.shortcut"
6: You can now launch the mod directly from the shortcut or play the vanilla game from the original .exe

Note: This mod is known to work with patches 1.06 and 1.03.
Note: As long as everyone has the latest version of the More CPs mod, it should work in multiplayer. However, this mod can potentially cause deysnc issues when using Gameranger and so I would recommend using this mod at a LAN party or using something like radmin VPN (https://radmin-vpn.com/) or hamachi (https://vpn.net/) instead
Note: Should be compatible with other mods as long as they don't change the command point limits.

Changelog:
v1.0 Original Release
v1.0b The starting campaign command points for good was increased to 300 from 200 and the starting campaign command points for evil was increased from 400 to 600.
v2.0 Reverted back to incremental command point increases for multiplayer to reduce the chance of desyncs. Now all brackets are 3x higher than vanilla rather than a flat 600 for good and 1200 for evil no matter the player count. For 2 players it is 600/1200, 3-4 players 450/900, 5-6 players 300/600, 7-8 players 240/480

Solid mod for singleplayer skirmish, etc... make sure to remove the mod before trying to play with others on Gameranger, because you might lose sync. Other than that it still works great!

Great point about Gameranger. I will update the description to make this more clear. I tested this mod at LAN partys where everyone is on the same network and didn't think about how distance could make it easier lose sync when I originally made this. I've added an updated version of the mod which should hopefully make it more reliable.

I've also added instructions about an alternative method of installation that will allow you to launch a shortcut to play the mod instead of having to remember to remove it every time you want to play multiplayer.

As for Gameranger, I've had issue with desyncs on other games too such as stronghold. This happened even when I playing with friends in the same town. You could try radmin VPN if you're having desync issues and still want to use the mod in multiplayer. It's like a better version of hamachi that doesn't require you to make an account.

Final Big Editor is the one I would recommend
Moddb.com

You can use text editors just make sure not to use notepad or any other editors that change the formatting of their contents. I recommend using notepad++, it's what I've used for years and works great.

If you're only going to be playing single player, no. That was mainly just a notice for those that play multiplayer to make sure everyone has the same version.
