you should set up the mod with a basic -Mod folder

 

basically you have a folder named MOD on your desktop

put in the INI file contents , you get this by extracting All , from INI.Big fro the game , you will need FinalBig program for this

 

Then create a shortcut file , with this property , your user name will be different 

 

 

Target :  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth ™ II\lotrbfme2.exe" -mod "C:\Users\juslo\Desktop\MOD"

 

If all is well , you can make a change and it should show 

 

BTW , i would recommend editing amour.ini instead , as health values  files are alot

 

PS do not edit  or even use gamedata.ini , you have to edit the files outside  that use the values 

 

Just keep testing stuff until it works , your in for a nice ride , make backups along the way , so you can always revert if a code breaks the game
