Step 1:  Go to your "Roaming" folder. ti finde her  "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming"

 

Step 2: Search the BFME or BFME II folder

 

 

Step 3: It should be empty. Create a Maps folder. 

 

 

Step 4: And a textfile.

 

 

Step 5: Put this in it.

 

AllHealthBars = yes

AlternateMouseSetup = no
AmbientVolume = 50
AudioLOD = High
Brightness = 50
FixedStaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
HeatEffects = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
IsThreadedLoad = yes

VoiceVolume = 70
 
 

Step 6: Save it as a options.ini

 

 

Step 7: Make sure you have change the file type.      

 

 

Step 8: and put it in your BFME folder

You should tell others how you fixed it ;)

Doesn't work for me tho... but just since the new update :(

EDIT: Okay, I just made it start - but as soon as I click on SKIRMISH the game crashes again :/

EDIT: Found a solution somewhere else in the forum. Just had to change the name in my skirmish.ini ;)

I try to find the Roaming folder under AppData and this folder doesn't seem to exist.. A separate Roaming folder exists, but both don't have BFME 2 in them.

I'm trying to install on a Windows 10 system, installing the game onto my secondary drive D:\. Installed BFME 2, fails to run, install the 1.06 patch, still fails.. install RotWK via Origin, fails.

Please help.

Are you installing by following our instructions in https://forums.revor...llation-guide/?

You have to find the options.ini file or create it. For that you need to go to %appdata% -> roaming -> bfme2

I'm not able to find this folder.. I have looked multiple times, and yes, the game IS installed. I have it installed on my second HDD, and not the primary, would that make a difference?

Set BFME2 to patch 1.06.

Hi, I am getting the same error as flynnser above, with ROTWK crashing when loading. I have reverted BFME II to path 1.06, and ensured that my options.ini file is the same as in the thread where it gives the details (though it states for BFME I and II but  makes no mention of ROTWK specifically). I've looked through various threads on the forum, but haven't been able to pick up a fix.

I installed BFME II and ROTWK from my original CDs, loading them as ISO images and installing from there. I ran the patch for 1.09 for BFME II (the link for 1.06 patch gave a 404 error so I couldn't do that), and I changed my options.ini file. This all seemed to run successfully and BFME II is running fine, whether I use the 1.09, 1.08, or 1.06 patch (the last being the current setting).

For ROTWK I ran the 2.01 patch after the initial installation, and then ran the 2.02/7.00 install. After that all I've done is to add the Maps folder and options.ini file into the "C:\Users\jbroo\AppData\Roaming\My The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king Files file", but when I launch the app it produces the error.

I read somewhere about an "unofficial" launcher, but looking in the installation folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king" the only additional launcher appears to be new_launcher.exe, but running that does not launch the application.

So I'm stumped, and hoping someone can help. I feel I'm not far from getting it working.

BTW I'm running Windows 10

 

I resolved the problem. I uninstalled, and then resintalled BFME II again, but did not install the 1.09 patch. Then I installed ROTWK and it is working ok. I now have all three games working again, and no cd, so I'm really pleased. Great to be able to play the games again, and on Windows 10. Thanks for keeping the games going, they're my favourite and it was sad to see that they were no longer supported by EA

Did you try to re-install?
