T3A News » T3A Christmas Special 2015

Posted December 13, 2015. By | View Comments



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 | 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.




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,


The3rdAge & T3A:Online Staff

T3A News » Ridder Clan Mod Giveaway

Posted September 19, 2015. By | View Comments

Hello Revora!


Today is a day of great joy for modders and players alike. After so much time I, Valaquenta, and Rider of Rohan decided that all the content that will never make it into the Ridder Clan Mod/The Horse Lord or was removed but is still usable (some of even high quality) should still be used, not by us, but by you, the fans!

After many years of development we gathered all content we saw fit and we want to share it with you. Mostly are elven units but you can find a hobbit, 2 nazguls, some Gondor units and Men of Dale.



There is a total of 35 models in this Giveaway! So click here to see a preview!



Thank you and enjoy!

T3A News » T3A:Online QuickMatch Simulation Ladder

Posted June 1, 2015. By | View Comments

The T3A:Online Team is happy to announce:




We are introducing our new QuickMatch generator

It allows you to play and gather points for a new BFME ranked ladder (QuickMatch simulation). This ladder is bridging the gap while the T3A:Online team works on implementing the ingame statistics and autoreports as quickly as possible. After our recent server upgrade this is the next feature we offer you for free and fun :). Visit the WEBSITE and have a look around. We offer a 1vs1 and 2vs2 ladder. Currently we're covering BFME1, but expanding and incorporating BFME2 and ROTWK is possible (and likely).



You will find all information in the accouncement topic.



Good luck and have fun,

~T3A:Online Team
