RotWK HD Logo Renders




What is it?


The RotWK: HD Edition is a model pack featuring both reworked and all-new unit and hero models.

If you like what we do, support the team on Patreon.


How does it work?


RotWK: HD Edition is being developed primarily for use on Revora's T3A:Online multiplayer server.

The most important feature of this model pack is that it's intercompatible, meaning you can

use it online even if your opponent doesn't have it installed.

You will not run into any compatibility or out-of-sync issues while running this pack.


How do I install it?


RotWK: HD Edition is still currently in development.

My, that last article we posted in 2017 had a bitter taste, didn't it?


Thanks to the efforts of Kwen and Spartan184, both veteran BFME1 modders, Shadow and Flame is now back in active development. Because 2017 seems like a lifetime ago, we'll refresh your memories as to what Shadow and Flame was, and tell you what it is going to be.



What is Shadow and Flame?
Shadow and Flame is a mod for Battle for Middle-earth 1 that adds a custom Gundabad faction, overhauls original factions with new mechanics, units, heroes and spells, makes changes to the BFME1 campaign, and improves AI.

Why is it alive again?
Shadow and Flame ceased development when its team went inactive or moved over to Age of the Ring. In recent months, 2 old team members that worked on Shadow and Flame and its predecessors have returned and picked up where the mod was left off back in 2016.

When will it be released?
We will soon enter the beta testing phase for the first new version of Shadow and Flame. As always, we don't provide release dates. But it won't be long.

What will this new version contain?
The new version of Shadow and Flame will contain an extensive art overhaul for all factions including Gundabad, as well as campaign fixes, optimization, and a refresher of game mechanics, notably for Gundabad.

What about Eriador?
Eriador was extremely early in the concept stages before the mod was discontinued. We decided that we would not include Eriador in this release because Eriador was never officially released in the first place.

Will it come in a later version?
Any further versions are not yet confirmed.

So will this be the last version?
That depends on its reception. If there's a big enough want, we hope to continue working on this. There are lots of ideas, but we won't commit to anything yet.


Got any further questions? Feel free to ask them.

Man I'd love to play this game with better graphics. Id even pay $$. Is it going to be just for the Age of the Ring mod or will it also be used on the original ROTWK version compatible with 2.02v8.0.4 ? Looks amazing, that's a lot of tedious work, well done.

Hope you guys are still working on this mod. Personally, I just want a HD version of the vanilla game rather than an overhaul (well, apart from also wanting Rohan and Gondor as separate factions). <3
