T3A News » The Ridder Clan Mod's Elven Create-a-Character
Hey Ridder Clan Mod Fans (and other The 3rd Age dwellers),
Finally a new Create-a-Character class is here for the Ridder Clan Mod!
Using all the new pieces we have added on the Elven CaC you can make 39200000 unique combinations!
(Disclaimer: The actual number may be slightly larger or smaller, don't take my word for it, i may have miscounted due to the immense amount of parts!)
For a sneak preview of several of the outfits take a look at the post made by Valaquenta here!
To make it even more interesting Val shows off an interesting feature for the Elves in one of the pictures, see if you can find out what it is!
Feel free to comment and give us suggestions!

T3A News » 13-04-'14: T3A:Online Steam Groups
Good afternoon friends,
In order to provide greater support for the social aspect of our BFME servers, we've decided to create Steam groups for them.
Using these groups allows you to:
- Chat with other group members, even when you're in-game (shift+tab)
- Create private chats with group members.
- Voice chat with group members.
- Quickly see if there are people looking for games.
All you have to do is add Battle for Middle-earth to your Steam Library. Games > Add a Non-Steam Game to My Library.
We've created a group for both BFME1 and BFME2, called T3A:Online BFME1 and T3A:Online BFME2. Just search for them on Steam and join us!

T3A News » 28-02-'14: T3A:Patch 1.06 RELEASED
The T3A:Online Team is proud to present
our latest BFME innovation,
~ What is T3A:Patch 1.06? ~
T3A:Patch 1.06 (or 1.06 for short) is a community patch developed by the T3A:Online Team.
It fixes the main issue of patch 1.05 (known as the movement bug)
and adds a number of exciting new features and game improvements.
We intend for T3A:Patch 1.06 to be the official patch of the T3A:Online server.
~ How can I get T3A:Patch 1.06? ~
T3A:Patch 1.06 is distributed through the T3A:Online launcher.
All you need to do is start up the T3A:Online Launcher and agree to install the latest update.
Important: Specific instructions for Gameranger users.
NOTE: We support multiple languages! For more information, GO HERE.
If you only play on our T3A server, use the client (Help -> Check for updates) to install!
NOTE: T3A:Patch 1.06 requires Community Patch 1.05 to be installed!
To use the common higher zoom out (widescreen patch) you will need an additional file, see FAQ below.
~ What are the primary features of T3A:Patch 1.06? ~
The features we are most excited about are the movement bug fix, the inclusion of 15 quality new and balanced maps,
and the graphical overhaul of every unit and hero, increasing their texture resolution from 64x64 to 256x256.
NOTE: We have Widescreen Support for our new maps, SEE HERE.
~ What exactly does T3A:Patch 1.06 change? ~
You can find a full and detailed changelog below:
~ Why did you decide to release your own patch? ~
Our team felt that the current divide between 1.04 and 1.05 players was harmful to the quality of the BFME community,
a split that exists mostly because of the movement bug introduced in patch 1.05.
As such, we designed this patch in an attempt to bridge the gap and appeal to everyone, both 1.04 and 1.05 players.
~ Misc T3A:Patch 1.06 FAQ ~
Q: Can I still play using other patches on the server?
A: The server is still technically patch-independent, so yes. However, we highly recommend updating the server client and using T3A:Patch 1.06 as it fixes critical bugs and generally improves the game experience.
Q: I don't want to use the new HD textures. Can I play T3A:Patch 1.06 without them?
A: You can, yes. Simply go into your Battle for Middle-earth installation folder (C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Battle for Middle-earth) and remove. You will still be able to play with people who have the HD textures installed.
Q: Does T3A:Patch 1.06 contain balance changes?
A: No, after extensive deliberation we have decided to not introduce any balance changes in this patch.
Q: I play using the Widescreen Patch. Do your new maps support widescreen?
A: We have released an updated Widescreen Patch to support the new maps in T3A:Patch 1.06. DOWNLOAD LINK.
Q: Is it possible to download the patch seperate from the T3A:Online Client?
A: It is, but we highly suggest installing it via the T3A:Online Launcher as it installs everything in the right place automatically. The patch files can be downloaded seperately here: DOWNLOAD LINK.
