I'm having serious issues getting both Battle for Middle Earth 2 and Rise of the Witch King working online.  I'm able to install the games and patch them easily enough, and I can play a single player game without problem, but the game crashes right after I try to do anything in the 'Online' screen, where you put in your login info.  At this point, I'm able to put in my login information, but when I click login, the game closes the login info box, then crashes.  It does the same thing if I try to go back to the main menu.

Can someone give me a hand here?  I've tried everything I can think of...

I've done the options.ini fix, I've tried reinstalling multiple times thinking I might have done something in the wrong order, I've gotten the startup fixer program and it too failed..

I'm running Windows 10, using Alcohol 120%, capable of running in Dx9 through Dx12 in fullscreen on most games.

Thanks in advance!

Are you launching the game through the T3A:Online Lancher?

If I remember correctly, this issue occurs when you don't run the game as administrator.

If you are launching through T3A, then both the T3A.exe and the lotrbfme2ep1.exe need to be run as administrator.
So to have it work without extra clicks, go to the ROTWK install folder, find
lotrbfme2ep1.exe, set its compatibility properties to "run as administrator". Do the
same to T3A (for me, "C:\Program Files (x86)\Revora\T3AOnline\").

Then if you launch T3A and click on ROTWK, you should be able to get online. (Remember to sign in using your server log in credentials, found here: https://t3aonline.net/account/ )



(If this doesn't work, sorry. I did have this issue in the past so I may be remembering incorrectly what fixed it for me)
