Try downloading the patches manually.

Hey guys,

sorry for my bad english

 

Today I installed BFME 1, 2 and RotWK following these steps. BFME1 worked perfectly on first try but BFME2 and RotWK are stopping working since it opens

 

Tried almost everything: Options.ini problem, launch as admin, some fixers, etc...

 

Tried too ran windows 10 on safe mode, there the game opens normally

 

 

My windows 10 is x64 with AMD RX 550

It seems like the AMD drivers aren't compatible, as stated by a guy on page 19 

 

Edit: SOME drivers

Everything went perfectly fine except for the very last part involving the Witch King expansion. After I installed the 2.02 patch and tried launching it I get a crash and an error message that looks like this:

Any ideas what went wrong/what I may have done wrong?

 

Edit: I fixed it the day after. I never got the 2.01 patch before 2.02 so I did that now and also switched the bfm2 patch from 1.9 to 1.6 wich made it work.

Set bfme2 to patch 1.06, not 1.09.

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."

So why do you not tell people to use the Origin version of RotWK?

 

It's free if you have a valid key and it works without a disc (or image) and also without the Origin Client running. All you need is to download through Origin and then authenticate at first start with your Origin account details.

 

the Origin version of RotWK is 2.00 version and cannot be updated to new version, if u do, u will lost your nocd.

 Hi!

 

I am trying to download the 2.02 patch of RotWK and have followed your directions closely. However, I get this error screen when I start the program. The error says:

 

"Program: ...e Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king\game.dat

 

 

 

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an an unusual way.

Please contact the application's support team for more information."

 

I have windows 10 if it means anything and have reinstalled the game three times now, avoiding the mini images mounting and the 2.01 origin update that I did the previous times. I am also running bfme2 on 1.06 as needed. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

Does the normal game run fine without community patches or our launcher? Bfme2 works too?

So Bfme2 works totally fine. I used this install guide to do everything: https://www.gamerepl...owtopic=1000430 (in case there is some file issues on bfme2's side). I also use the bfme2 patch switcher to go between the 1.06 and 1.09 updates.

But RotWK doesn't work through any of the community patches. When I run the base game, it simply says to insert the CD to start the game. I did use WinCDEmu to mount everything if it makes any difference.

Install the latest rotwk community patch and make sure it replaces the game.dat. You might have to do that yourself. Afterwards it should not ask for the CD anymore.

Yes you can.

I have the full installer for 2.02 yet it still doesn't work. When I try to change the update to 2.01, the program freezes and stops working. I can't seem to find any manual patch for 2.02

The new game.dat should be linked somewhere in the forums, try to replace your current one manually.

Hi folks :) first of all thx for the amazing work :)

 

I've my cds of all 3 games in front of me and I've already installed every game on my pc from the original cds.

Since i don't like leaving those CDs inside the trey (too afraid they could be damaged) and i'm too lazy to search for them everytime i want to play (damn you steam with your on-demand games), I downloaded the mini-images and mounted them with winCDEmu. 
 

BFME2 and ROTWK (with the latest edain mod installed!) works perfectly fine :) 

Unfortunately the iso file for BFME1 (since there's no mini image for this one) isn't recognized by the game. The game is moded (ElvenstarMod, the first mod I installed back then in 2005 and still rockin it :D ), but so is ROTWK and this works with the mounted mini image. 

 

Any ideas what could solve the problem? Don't want to copy/paste an onther "game.dat" since it won't work prop with the mod I've installed. 

 

Thx in advance :)

Dear friends, thank you for the games. I have installed bfme 2 without a problem. However I couldn't start to install the first game. I am mounting the iso file without a problem. However, when I click autorun, the setup menu doesn't show up. Windows warning issues that the iso file could be broken. 

 

Also, when ı was downloading the iso file for bfme (first game) the server was slow, (download speed was 7-20kb per second). Maybe when it was downloading, the file was corrupt. Could anyone please upload the first game's iso file to another server. 

 

Many thanks.

Try the mirror, but usually the main download is quick.

Hey I managed to get every game working using the instructions provided without a disc, however, i cannot play Rotwk 2.01 without a disk (Patch 2.02 does work however), which i need to be able to do to play the Edain Mod. Does anyone know of the solution? I tried mounting one of the Rotwk mini images but that didnt seem to do anything.
