I'm not very good with technology. I am pretty sure I've followed all the setup instructions, but can only play BFME desktop version. I can't get online, and I can't play BFME2 or Rise of the Witch King. How do I get online so I can play against real people? The computer is too easy!


The desktop shortcut 'T3A Online' does not allow me to launch any of the 3 games. The pop up says 'unable to launch' when I click on all three of them.


I can get to the online login window through the 'Battle for Middle Earth' and 'BFME desktop mode' shortcuts; but when I try to log on, a window pops up saying "login timed out".


A final plea: On the website, there are games listed at the top of the screen. How does one join these games???


I just wanna play online. Help me batman, gotham city needs you!

1. To get online, make an account on t3aonline.net and download The 3rd Age Online launcher as you apparently already have.


2. Where do you have the games installed? I suggest reinstalling both bfme and the launcher. Follow the instructions here and https://forums.revor...lation-support/

Also try run the t3aonline launcher as administrator (right-click-> run as administrator)


3. BFME desktop mode? I'm not sure what you mean by that, but to play online you have to launch the game through the T3AO launcher, if you just try to login through the normal game shortcut it will time you out because it tries to connect to EA servers, and those closed back in 2010.


4. On the t3aonline.net website you can see the games hosted by other players right now as well as who are online, but you don't join games from there. You join these games by launching the game through the t3ao launcher, logging in with your t3ao account, going to open play and choosing a lobby to play in (most people host games in the game chat or 1v1 lobby).


Again, if you can't get it to work, uninstall the games and follow the instructions in the two links I sent you. Game installation first, of course. Another alternative is GameRanger.
