Spurred on by the nostalgia I feel from recent 'BFME:Classic Edition' updates, I decided to have a look on 'Waybackmachine' to see if they had cached a version of EA's official BFME 1 website. They have and its got some very strange goodies hidden, some of which I shall list & link to below.
 

The Battle for Middle Earth fan website kit?

ftp://largedownloads.ea.com/pub/misc/BFME_Fan_Site_Kit.exe

I have no idea why anybody would want this really, but is was in there downloads section. It does contain quite a few screenshots that I haven't seen before, including some interesting screenshots of that illusive Gondor castle.

The Battle for Middle Earth trailer 4

https://web.archive....iler 4&resID=hi

Watch it in internet explorer as chrome doesn't support the file type.

I don't think this one is on youtube, but then I suppose you don't really need it - well you could maybe make a cinematic out of it?

Making a Cinematic (video)

Very interesting video I thought, it shows how much work actually went into making those brief intros & outros to each major campaign mission.

Advanced Tutorial (video)

I actually haven't been able to watch this one, my version of quick time seems to do nothing. If you have any success do let me know.

Arseloads of articles

https://web.archive..../news.jsp?ncc=1

There are far to many interesting/boring articles & interviews for me to list here but you may peruse them at your leisure in the very slow link above.

Well I'm pretty sure these are the only things of possible interest on there, but if you find anything else leave a link in the comments.

They used some high quality skins out there... why they added crap ones into original game :(

Also Legolas with a cloak looks so cool!

The fan site kit contains a PSD of the BFME logo in high res. That's amazing.

That first picture... Semi-Tower Guards with bow and sword equipped. Amazing.

Perhaps those Semi-Tower Gaurds were meant to be the alternative for the bronze heavy armor for the Gondorian units?

Well I'm glad bits & bobs came of use.

Where's Legolas with a cloak? Was in he in the trailer?
