Hey there, on my PC (Win10) BFM 1 & 2 works very fine in solo and on the t3a server. My only problem is, that i cannot connect to the ROTWK Server, does is work with the german patch?.
For all posters before me this is a short repost for the whole installation process for BFm.
Download The Battle for Middle-earth ™. The original unmodified version. Main / Mirror 1 / Mirror 2
Download the Battle for Middle-earth v1.03 Patch in your language. (Scroll down)
Download our all-in-one patch 1.06 installer. (Installs 1.05 and 1.06 and T3A:Online.)
First after installation start patch 1.03 and after that 1.06.
The game says you must update only , when you patch wrong.
Dont forget to create the options.ini data in your appdata/roaming/bfm with this stats or it will not start
first time when you start the game it will freeze but it creates the folder. You can shut it down with task manager, than put the options.ini in the new folder.
AllHealthBars = yes AlternateMouseSetup = no AmbientVolume = 13 AudioLOD = High Brightness = 50 FirewallBehavior = 1 FirewallNeedToRefresh = FALSE FirewallPortAllocationDelta = 0 FirewallPortOverride = 16000 FlashTutorial = 0 HasGotOnline = yes
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes IdealStaticGameLOD = VeryLow IsThreadedLoad = yes MovieVolume = 20 MusicVolume = 21 Resolution = 1920 1080 SFXVolume = 16 ScrollFactor = 50 SendDelay = no StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh SuppressCahPromo = true TimesInGame = 24
UnitDecals = yes UseEAX3 = no VoiceVolume = 13
put LotRicon and lotrbfme in your firewall and give both applications under compatility adminrights
The last 2 things, go in your router and open the port 16000 with your ip under udp not tcp
At last install the T3a online launcher and give under compatility adminrights.
Start the launcher, hook bfm and push the buttom.
When the game starts and in multiplayer there come no update messages than you have finished it.
Or you must reinstall and try it again.
