Hey all,

As you may know, Shadow and Flame was cancelled at the start of this year due to the team moving on to Age of the Ring. We are now releasing the last internal version that was worked on. There are a bunch of bugs still remaining, but the mod is quite playable.

If you want to use parts of this mod for your own project, these simple conditions apply:

  • Private use: you can do whatever you want.

  • Public use: If you want to use our work in a public release, you will need to ask permission by sending a PM to MathijsRevora and provide credits afterwards.

The mod does not come with an installer. To install the mod, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you have BFME1 patched to 1.06
  2. Unzip the downloaded file and move SaF.BIG into your 'My Battle for Middle-earth Files' folder. To find this folder, type %appdata% into your Windows search bar.
  3. After that, create a duplicate shortcut for BFME1 on your desktop, right click, go to Properties, and add the following to the text in your Target field: ' -mod SaF.big', after which the text should read "C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)\lotrbfme.exe" -mod SaF.big, substituting C:\ for whatever drive it says for you.
  4. Play the mod and ignore the bugs.

Regards,
The Defunct Shadow and Flame Team

Best mod yet for BFME, kudos to the devs. Just one issue though, couldn't change the limit for the command points.

Is there a icon that could be downloaded for this mod, just makes it easier to distinguish between the mod and vanilla BFME?

This is a great mod. Though I play it more often, that doesn't mean AOTR is better. Both are great, but I prefer BFME1's mechanics to ROTWK's.
I would recommend it to any BFME player because of its great HD graphics, its awesome units, and its hard work.

I thing this mod has future. It felt good to play with another evil faction. Great work and I hope that you release the next versions soon.
