Bfme2 Crashes when I click on New faction's Builder

28 March 2021 - 10:59 AM

Hello, people of The3rdAge.

--

I am posting today seeking help with solving a problem. I added a new faction to Battle for Middle-earth 2 with Patch 1.06 and whenever I click on this new faction's builder, the game crashes.

--

Here is the list of solutions I tried that never solved the problem (in the order I can remember them off the top of my head). After every solution attempt, I reversed course on only number 2:

  1. Limiting the builder's building menu to the three (so far) buildings I actually got into the game.
  2. Changing the voice acts to recycle the Gondor builder's voices instead of the original Easterling builder voice acting that I created (yes, this is for an Easterling faction)
  3. Giving the builders and what they are currently able to build original artwork

Can someone tell me what the real solution is? But while I wait for a real solution, I am going to try more of my own solutions, including bringing back the original builder model I had going on for my idea of a Bfme2 Easterling faction. Thanks in advance,

Building Costumes from Scratch

27 September 2020 - 09:56 AM

Hello, folks!

--

I happen to be preparing for Halloween by building as many different Lord of the Rings costumes as possible before Halloween, starting with Dain Ironfoot (as King Under the Mountain) first, followed by Sauron, and then... who I create a costume of 3rd and beyond remains to be seen. Plus, I have no clue whether or not I feel like doing all of Sauron's different physical forms... yet.

--

Who else on this forum build costumes from scratch? And no, they don't have to be LotR costumes, but they certainly can be. :thumbsupcool:


Which news outlets do you trust and why?

23 September 2020 - 08:22 PM

Hello, everyone!

--

I thought I'd drop this topic here and begin with my own answer to this question.

--

The two most trustworthy news sources, in my opinion, are ThoughtCo and Pew Research.

--

I trust these two because they have never failed a fact-check, they are devoid of partisan talking points, there is no appeal to any stereotype in either outlet, and in similar ways both of them succeed where both right-wing and left-wing outlets fail me.

--

Just ask Media Bias Fact Check about these two outlets, and you'll learn more of why I trust them so much. But which outlets do you trust and why? By the way, these aren't the only ones I trust, but they are my top two.


Changing my MacBook Pro's Battery

20 September 2020 - 12:29 PM

Usually, I come here to talk LotR lore, Battle for Middle-earth, and/or Games Workshop's Middle-earth game.

--

But occasionally, I will talk of something Non-LotR.

--

So... on roughly September 3rd of 2020, I took on a Do It Yourself project: Replacing the battery of my Mid-2014 MacBook Pro with a new battery from Late 2020. And I was a success with it! The only problem is that no charger cable I bought so far will refill it! But I will be solving that problem on the 25th of this month.

--

Here is some backdrop: my MacBook Pro's battery it came with... fried itself in Early 2020, but don't ask how or why as nobody could possibly know the answer, not even me. So, I made it my mission to replace my MacBook Pro battery and it's charger cable.

--

Anyway, the message of this post is I followed a 5-minute tutorial on YouTube on how to replace a Mid-2014 MacBook Pro's battery to the letter and now my MacBook Pro has been resurrected.

--

Has anyone here ever done something similar to this?
