Good evening BFME1 players,

 

We are happy to announce and immediately release a fix for BFME1's stretched UI, which occurs for players using a Widescreen resolution.

The fix was developed by long-time The3rdAge modding veteran and staff member Kwen. Thanks Kwen!

 

This fix is intercompatible, meaning that installing it doesn't prevent you from playing with people that don't have it installed!

Together with our Patch 1.06 Widescreen Map height fix, you can now play BFME1 in proper Widescreen.

 

DOWNLOAD NOW

 

How does it work?

  1. Unpack the _aptpatch.rar file using WinRAR.
  2. Place the _aptpatch.BIG file in your BFME1 installation folder (for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth ™)
  3. Play the game without the stretched Palantir and Spellbook!

How to use a Widescreen resolution?

  1. Visit your My Battle for Middle-earth Files folder, easily accessible by typing %appdata% in the Windows Search bar.
  2. Open Options.ini and add the following line: Resolution = 1920 1080 (if you have a different widescreen resolution, type that instead)
  3. Play the game in full Widescreen!

How to play BFME1 online?

We hope you enjoy,

 

The3rdAge & T3A:Online Staff

Thanks, Kwen!


"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."

Nice work!

Does this fix exist for BFME2 & RotWK as well? And what about the icons in game? Are they still streched?
