This is a mod I created quite some time ago, but I thought I'd re-release it here on for anybody who like me still occasionally likes playing their older games. This is basicly just a rebalance mod making things from what they were to what I wanted them to be. :) The biggest noteworthy changes are the CP limit being MUCH higher, and EVERY UNIT SIZE IN THE GAME being larger (more men, orcs, etc per "unit" created). I also redid every formation in the game to accomodate the larger unit sizes. Other than that, see the included readme for a mostly complete list of balance changes made. I hope you enjoy. -Chewy

I can try. First, create a new install of BFME. Then patch to 1.02 - NOT the latest patch. You can find 1.02 here:
After that, follow the author's instructions.
If you are on windows 10 and the game gives you an access exception error, then:
navigate to c -> users -> <your name> -> AppData -> Roaming -> My Battle for Middle Earth Files
Create a new text document, then open it up in notepad
Paste the next block of text into the document, then save it as "options.ini"

AllHealthBars = yes
AlternateMouseSetup = no
AmbientVolume = 81 Animati
AudioLOD = Low
Brightness = 50
DecalLOD = Off
EffectsLOD = UltraHigh
FixedStaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
GameSpyIPAddress =
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
HeatEffects = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
IsThreadedLoad = yes
ModelLOD = UltraHigh
MovieVolume = 70
MusicVolume = 78
Resolution = 1280 960
SFXVolume = 80
ScrollFactor = 29
SendDelay = no
ShaderLOD = UltraHigh
ShadowLOD = UltraHigh
StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
TerrainLOD = High
TextureQualityLOD = High
TimesInGame = 64
UnitDecals = yes
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 69
WaterLOD = UltraHigh

That should solve compatibility issues. Good luck!

After seeing unanswered questions it seems the author of this mod cannot handle constructive criticism which is too bad. :( Me click back!

Or perhaps the author of this mod is just busy and only sees this old site a couple times a year...
Please, criticize away.
