When I try to install tBfME patches 1.05 and 1.06 it says "certificates are expired" and then "download failed" even though I have the 1.03 patch installed. Please help!

When I try to download Patch 1.06 for BFME1 it gives me this error message: "The internet site you are about to view uses a certificate that has expired or is not yet valid. Do you wish to proceed?"

 

It then proceeds to fail to download. Did I do something wrong? I made it as far as that on the list as then before I was stopped. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Servers are down right now. Install the patches manually here:

Hi all,

 

after downloading, reading the instructions & installing everything.

 

From T3A Online, it's starting and then after 60 seconds it doesn't do anything.

Really would like to play the game, can anyone help me?

 

Does it have something to do with?

 

Game crashes before opening with no error.
First, upgrade your graphics card drivers.

If you have more than one graphics card in your computer then test running the game on each card.

For computers with NVIDIA and Intel: The game will not open on an Intel Integrated graphics card, so use the NVIDIA graphics card. First, right click the game's shortcut. Then in the menu click Run with graphics processor and select High-performance NIVIDIA processor. Also, you can open the NVIDIA settings from this menu and choose programs to use with the graphics card.

Now - after running the game perfectly yesterday!!!! - RotWK dies upon launch with the same reason that Emsi states above.  So neither BFME2 nor RotWK works anymore : (  Any suggestions to correct this?

 

EDIT: Eureka!  RotWK would die as it would not play except when BFME2 was set to "Patch 1.06" and NOT "Patch 1.09".  Changing that back let it work.  Still no luck with BFME2, even with the ini file correction.

 

EDIT 2: As of right now ... BFME2 is playing well in HD!  I deleted and re-installed and re-followed the listed steps again, and it works.  There must have been some install error or bad data on first install.

I just can't play the RoTWK online. I get the "must update" message. I have tried to uninstall, followed all the topic suggestions and nothing work. Am I missing something here? I really wanna play it online :( 

Edit: ps. I was able to play the BTME and launched it from the t3aonline application

Hi,

I had troubles installing BFME2 with a setup where my default user account is not an administrator.

Starting T3A:Online as an administrator would lead to the splash screen showing up, staying for a minute, and then crashing. This matches the behaviour when the Options.ini is missing, I suppose the game looks for the admin's %appdata%, but the game is installed for the user.

I fixed this issue by the following steps:

 

1. Switch to your admin account

2. Follow the original instructions

3. Launch T3A:Online and enable the hook for BFME2

4. Switch back to your default, non-admin user

5. Run the game as administrator

 

This resolved the issues for me and I was able to play online.

Good luck!

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping someone smarter than me can help me out. Since Nvidia updated their control panel and removed the "Run with Graphics Processor" option from the context menu, I am not able to run any of the BFME games on my preferred graphics processor and it is defaulting to integrated. I have set the high performance GPU as the preference in both Windows graphics settings as well as in the Nvidia control panel, and no luck. I'm guessing this is happening because when I start the game Windows is somehow not recognizing that I have a graphics preference on it, but I have no way of finding out how to make it recognize that outside of what I've already done. 

Any help is appreciated! 

Thanks!

Hi ALL

 

Downloaded BFMA2 earlier as I thought I'd never play this again as I seem to only have the bonus disc here. 

 

Downloaded the launcher and patch ( the patch update I have no idea if it installed it correct) 

 

However on lauch the circle spins for a good 20 secs, the game screen goes black and then closes. It does this is I try running the game or using launcher. 

 

Any help would be great. I have very little technical skills when it comes to PCs

 

Thank you 

 

Jason

For me, The Battle for Middle-Earth II does nothing but restart. I click the icon, it says I need to restart, I restart, log back in, I click the icon, it says I need to restart, etc. Also, the keygen link doesn't work.

Hi! Thanks so much for doing this you have no idea how happy I am to be able to play this game again! Just thought I'd let you know it looks like the keygen site for bfme2 is down. I'd appreciate it a lot if it was reuploaded/put somewhere else. It's cool the mods on here are still active

Hey, I've followed all steps of the installation process of BFME II, yet when I get to placing the game.dat file I get stuck. when I place the file in the BFMEII file, my computer asks me whether or not I want to replace the already existing game.dat file with the new one. It then asks me whether I want to copy part of the other file into the new file. I've tried all possibilities: replacing with copying part of the other file, replacing without copying part of the other file, having two seperate game.dat files with copying part of the other file and having two seperate files without copying part of the other file.

Nothing works however. I have a windows 10 64-bit computer and I have installed all patches for the game. Can somebody please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

I have the same problem, I believe. I installed BFME2 using the cd and when I tried to play it (before and after all the T3A patches were installed) I got the message that I needed to insert the correct cd. Not sure how this is happening. I then installed the same game.dat file, replacing the original one. Still didn't work.
