Great news to all my loyal fans! Kings of the West has been released!!!

Since you've been waiting for so long, I'll keep this short and sweet :p

The mod comes with a 42 page manual explaining the changes made to each faction as well as some basic strategies and a frequently asked questions section that you'll definitely want to read before you play. Manual can be found here: KotW Mod Page

The mod is packaged in an installer so all you have to do is download it and run the installer and it'll take care of the rest of the installation.

And without further ado, here's the link to the mod:

Yeah I know, I get the same message. My best guess is that their server didn't start to upload the file until the pages went active instead of doing it beforehand. So it will be a little while I guess before it is ready. I have no idea how long that may be, could be 10 minutes or an hour, though I wouldn't guess much more than an hour.

*Download is now working on LotrFiles*

I had a dream about KOTW and I woke up at 8:00 to play it only to find out that the zip was still waiting to be installed! :p

I finished the installer loading BFME1 up right now!

I tried to install your mod, and it seemed to work, but then when I try to play it it says, "C:Program Files\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle Earth ™\lotrbfme.exe
The specified path does not exist.
Check the path, and then try again."

If you have a different path to your game, try to change it in your shortcut options.

Yep, KrackenFromBlackSea is correct, if the target isn't working then that means you installed Bfme to a non-default directory and you'll have to change the shortcut target to point to the bfme.exe file and folder. It might be easiest to just copy what your normal bfme shortcut says for the target and location and then paste that part in the corresponding sections of the KotW shortcut. Be careful that you don't overwrite the part at the end of the target that says " -mod KotWMod.big" since that is the part that tells it to load the mod.

Ok. Thanks. Once I got that to work, and I tried to play the game, I pressed skirmish, and an "Exception" window came up that said,
"The tread tried to read from or write to a virtual address for which it does not have the appropriate access. Access address 0x00000008 war read from.0x5
Location: 00c87bb5 game.dat+0x887bb5, StringBase<char>::StringBase<char>+55"
A second window came up which said, "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program: ...Files\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle Earth ™\game.dat
This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the applications support team for more information."

Sounds like you have the same problem that another player had, the last mod you played was one with a new faction right? Maybe the elves or something? In any event, you need to reload that mod and start a skirmish game as one of the original four factions. Then as soon as it loads the game, quit out of it and try my mod again. The reason that you get an error when you try to load the skirmish menu is that the "last faction played" is currently set to a faction that doesn't exist in my mod or the original game and so if you try to play either of them, it will crash on you. :p let me know if that works.

Also I'm going to move these last few posts to the Support thread since that's what they are about. But I'll wait a little bit so that you can see them and not wonder where your posts went!
