So, me and my friends just got everything set up on BFME2, we all got into a lobby just fine and started playing. About 10 minutes into the game we all got a pop up saying the game is out of sync and the game ended. Does anyone know what this issue is or how to fix it?
BFME2 Out of sync issue?

Did you play a custom map? You have to restart your game after playing certain custom maps.
Did anyone of you install a mod into the game directory?
Did anyone of you modify his game files?
Did you all install the same game files, additional patches/community made content if any?
"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."

The OOS issue is mostly due to modified maps or game.dat. If you have extra or modified .ini files (inside .big files) then you will mostly receive a mismatch error and can't join in the first place.

I still have this issue today. I am playing BFME2 ROTWK using the unofficial 2.02 patch. Everyone else that I am playing with uses the same patch, and multiplayer games crash within the first 15 minutes. This can happen multiple games in a row, and then we will have a game that can last all the way to the end. Haven't found any correlation between maps (custom vs official) or individuals playing the game at this point. Any tips? We have not tried LAN games, but I was curious if others had the same issue in LAN as well.

Go to %appdata% folder (Windows key + R) -> Roaming (sometimes you're put into this by default) -> My Lord of the Rings (Version here, BFME I, II or RotWK) -> Maps -> Delete MapCache.ini. Make sure all players do this and all players restart their games.
It usually happens after you play a heavily modded map. Other suggestions:
If you're playing RotWK, make sure you all either replaced your game.dat or you all didn't
If you're playing RotWK, make sure you all have the same BFME II patch enabled
If you're playing RotWK, make sure you are all on the same 2.0.2 version (there's v1 through 7 I believe)
Otherwise, yeah. Mods can suck sometimes
