T3A News » Hosted Mods Forum Changes

Posted November 8, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments

Good evening all,


I have made some drastic changes in the layout of our hosted mods.


As you can see, the T3A forum is no longer the scrollfest it was, and all hosted mods are now neatly categorized in appropriate subforums under the new 'Hosted Mods' category:

Released BFME Mods

In Development BFME Mods

Archived BFME Mods


The advantage here is that users can easily distinguish between released mods, in-development mods, and dead mods without having to scroll so far down. Even though our mods are now behind an extra layer of subforum, the whole thing looks more self-explanatory, visible, and user friendly. Someone visiting us in search of released BFME mods won't have to look far. You'll also note the Hosted Mods category now sits above the Modding category for additional exposure. 


I intend to further update individual mod subforums with new icons representing available releases and perhaps something that represents a mod being top-rated (which is really why RJ-RotWK is not in the Archived subforum). 


I hope you all get used to it quickly. :p


NOTE: If you feel I have made a mistake in categorizing a certain mod, let me know.

Posted April 23, 2014. By Ridder Geel | View Comments

Hello Ridder Clan Mod Fans (and others),


Today I am happy to demonstrate the Voting System which I have created for the Ridder Clan Mod!

The concept is a relatively simple one, you start a game and then vote for which options YOU like most, or allow the game to choose for you.

T3A News » 11-04-'14: New Forum Layout

Posted April 11, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments

Hi all,


As you might have noticed, the T3A forum layout has gotten a bit of a facelift.


Here's a head's up on what's been changed:

  • Forum names and descriptions improved.
  • Redirects to modding tutorials added to BFME1 Modding, BFME2 & RotWK Modding, Art & Graphics, and Worldbuilder.
  • Hosting Services & Support has been added to the T3A Community category.
  • BFME Modding Jobs, Requests and Ideas has been renamed to Drawing Board & Mod Recruitment, and made it into a subforum under Showcase.
  • Mod Discussion and Tool Development subforums removed, topics moved to The Prancing Pony and Showcase.
  • Several old and useless redirects removed.

I hope you like the new layout. For further suggestions, feel free to post here, or shoot me a PM.

T3A News » T3A:Online for BFME2 Is Here!

Posted April 2, 2014. By Mathijs | View Comments






Hello everyone! Today is a big day for the BFME2 community.

Ever since the EA's BFME2 servers were taken offline, 

we and many other BFME2 fans have been waiting and wishing for the servers to return.

Wait no more!


As promised, we are releasing BFME2 server support!


Ever since we released T3A:Online for BFME1, we have been bombarded by people asking us if and when we would release it for BFME2.

All you need to do is download and install the client, create an online account over at our forums, and you'll be all set to log into the servers.






WHAT DOES T3A:Online for BFME2 DO?

  • It restores BFME2's online functionality
  • It eliminates the need for third party software (such as Hamachi or GameRanger)
  • It is compatible with all mods and game patches (provided the person you're playing is using the same game version)
  • It features a working buddy system


  • It does not have the quickmatch system (yet).
  • It does not support stats or ladders (yet).


  • A clean version of BFME2, preferably patched to 1.06 (the last official patch EA released). 
  • A Revora forum account (the name you choose becomes your T3A:Online account name)
  • A special password set in your Revora account settings (the password you choose will become your T3A:Online password. It should be unique and not used anywhere else)


  • We are working on RotWK, no release date yet.



For our official T3A:Online BFME2 forums, go here.


For a complete guide on installation, please refer to the website:

If you are experiencing difficulties, please refer to our support forums:


Have fun playing!
