Hi, I'm trying to to Play LOTR: BFME2 ROTWK, Age of the Ring Mod online. I have everything downloaded and ready, and I can play solo and skirmish but not multiplayer online. I continue to get the "You must download the update to play LOTR: ROTWK online "  I click OK and then get "You must have administrator rights to install the patch", if I click cancel the game goes back to the screen. Please help

As far as I know, no version of the game supports the "online" option on the multiplayer button anymore. This is because GameSpy shut their servers down ages ago. To play AOTR online, follow this tutorial for GameRanger: 

Or, if you want to play on T3A's online server, use the tutorial on this page: https://aotr.fandom....iki/Multiplayer

I've never used T3A online (only GameRanger), so I can't really help you very much there. Did you try to run as admin and/or XP SP3 compatibility mode?

 

Edit: actually, using the GameRanger guide on the fandom link is much easier than the youtube tutorial. No installations other than regular GameRanger are needed
