THE RETURN OF BFME ONLINE MULTIPLAYER IS NOW!


Hello everyone! Today is a big day for the BFME community.

It's been almost three years since EA shut down BFME's servers,

forcing the community to start using third party software to get their BFME multiplayer experience.

It was no longer possible to simply log into the game's online server and play.


Today, all of this will change.


We at The 3rd Age BFME community have been hard at work for over a year, developing T3A:Online,

a custom BFME online server and launcher that will allow you to once again log into the game's online mode and play.

All you need to do is download and install the client, create an online account over at our forums, and you'll be all set to log into the servers.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


WHAT DOES T3A:Online DO?
  • It restores BFME's online functionality
  • It eliminates the need for third party software (such as Hamachi or GameRanger)
  • It is compatible with all mods and game patches (provided the person you're playing is using the same game version)
  • It features a working buddy system
WHAT DOES T3A:Online NOT DO?
  • It does not have the quickmatch system (yet).
  • It does not support stats or ladders (yet).
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO USE T3A:Online?
  • A clean version of BFME1, patched to 1.05, the latest community patch
  • A Revora forum account (the name you choose becomes your T3A:Online account name)
  • A special password set in your Revora account settings (the password you choose will become your T3A:Online password. It should be unique and not used anywhere else)
WHAT ABOUT BFME2 & RISE OF THE WITCH-KING?
  • We will release additional versions of T3A:Online to support these games at a later date.

This is so awesome! I'd like to thank everyone who made this possible - it is like a dream come true!

I'm just curious about the stability of the current used server for this online service, how many players could play simultaneously on it?

A few hundred at minimum. The server is very light-weight.

Well, I will be using this at some point. Unfortunately, I am not doing much gaming on a computer with internet at the moment.

  • A clean version of BFME1, patched to 1.05, the latest community patch.

Is that a typo, or has there been some sort of real, community created, patch to the game?
I've been away for quite some time, so I wasn't sure if I maybe just missed something.

That is real, we have steps on how to set it up properly and we are managing a live community patch to fix bugs, exploits and balancing
