T3A News » T3A Ladder Update (BFME 1)

Posted December 30, 2016. By Echo | View Comments

Ladder News 2016!

laddernews2016.png

 

The T3A Ladder was updated and now all ladder profiles can receive their own profile page. Linking your profile is not mandatory, but you will need it if you want to have a player profile page and awards on display.

To link your profile, we will need your Revora account ID found in your profile link. Simply post that ID in this topic as well as the ladder profile(s) you're using, we will then link your profile(s) to your ladder name.

Also, we decided to implement pages for all ladders, limiting the number of players per page to 25. This way, it will not look as cluttered as before. The Quick Match Generator received a visual overhaul and was provided with an auto-complete function to type names in faster (also helps to affirm that players are indeed registered).

 

Lastly, as some of you have noticed, we're about to introduce 3vs3 Quick Match. We're making some final adjustments before it goes live. Stay tuned!

 

Have a great remaining holiday season and a happy new year celebration!

T3A News » TDH: Widescreen Edition Released

Posted December 23, 2016. By Mathijs | View Comments

announcement_moddb.png


The Dwarf Holds, a classic BFME1 mod, has been optimized for users with widescreen monitors.


Playing the original TDH on a widescreen monitor meant having to deal with a very close map zoom. This version fixes that, while also upping the mod's FPS to the standard of BFME1 Patch 1.06. To install it, download it here and run the installer.

If you haven't done so yet, make sure to download our BFME1 widescreen UI patch, which fixes the stretched interface experienced when playing the game on a widescreen resolution.

If you don't yet know how to enable widescreen in BFME1:

  • Open your My Battle for Middle-earth Files folder, easily accessible by typing %appdata% in the Windows Search bar.
  • Open Options.ini and add the following line: Resolution = 1920 1080 (if you have a different widescreen resolution, type that instead)
  • Play the game in full Widescreen!

Thanks and have fun playing,
The Dwarf Holds Team & The3rdAge.net Staff

Seasons Greetings, fellow BFME players!

 

We are happy to announce our Christmas Special update for BFME1. For the first time in BFME1's history, Middle-earth will be completely covered in white. Our Christmas present to you!

 

This update is intercompatible, which means that it can be played perfectly against players who are not using this update. It is compatible only with the T3A:Online server. This mini mod does not modify the game balance at all.

 

After downloading, simply run the installer and start playing.

 

This update includes:

  • Snowy textures for all faction-specific structures and neutral creeps
  • Snowy versions of: Andrast, Carnen, Carrock, Fords of Isen, Anorien, Druadan Forest, Harlond, Wold, Lebennin, Rhun
  • Christmas music instead of many original EA/LotR soundtracks
  • More hidden christmas surprises

T3A News » BFME1 Widescreen UI Fix RELEASED

Posted November 16, 2015. By Mathijs | View Comments

Good evening BFME1 players,

 

We are happy to announce and immediately release a fix for BFME1's stretched UI, which occurs for players using a Widescreen resolution.

The fix was developed by long-time The3rdAge modding veteran and staff member Kwen. Thanks Kwen!

 

This fix is intercompatible, meaning that installing it doesn't prevent you from playing with people that don't have it installed!

Together with our Patch 1.06 Widescreen Map height fix, you can now play BFME1 in proper Widescreen.

 

DOWNLOAD NOW

 

How does it work?

  1. Unpack the _aptpatch.rar file using WinRAR.
  2. Place the _aptpatch.BIG file in your BFME1 installation folder (for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\EA GAMES\The Battle for Middle-earth ™)
  3. Play the game without the stretched Palantir and Spellbook!

How to use a Widescreen resolution?

  1. Visit your My Battle for Middle-earth Files folder, easily accessible by typing %appdata% in the Windows Search bar.
  2. Open Options.ini and add the following line: Resolution = 1920 1080 (if you have a different widescreen resolution, type that instead)
  3. Play the game in full Widescreen!

How to play BFME1 online?

We hope you enjoy,
