T3A News » BFME 2 / ROTWK Code Reference

Posted April 25, 2019. By Ridder Geel | View Comments

Good day Modders!

 

Today I present a useful tool for those writing code for BFME 2 / ROTWK.

I have created a wiki which contains all kinds of information on the different modules for use in the Object class in BFME. This should help people out with figuring out if what they want to do is even possible in the SAGE engine.

Read more about it in this topic:

https://forums.revor...code-reference/

 

The plan is to expand the wiki to contain information on more subjects than the object modules, but this all depends on what areas people would like to get more information on.

I hope this code reference will be of use to many coders!

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,

 

The3rdAge & T3A:Online Staff

So the Revora inbox received this just now:

 

WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES

 

THE BATTLE FOR MIDDLE-EARTH 3: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES
FOR XBOX ONE™, PLAYSTATION® 4, and WINDOWS™ PC
THE BELOVED MIDDLE-EARTH REAL TIME STRATEGY GAME RETURNS

 

Burbank, Calif. - March 31, 2015 - Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces today that The Battle for Middle-earth 3: The Battle of the Five Armies, an epic real time strategy game based on J.R.R. Tolkien's renowned novels is set to launch on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows® PC in 2016.

"Having secured the rights to this fabled franchise, we can finally bring The Battle for Middle-earth into the current generation of video games," says Isaac Johnston, High King, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "Utilizing the award-winning people behind 2014's 'Shadow of Mordor', we are looking to both satisfy the existing The Battle for Middle-earth fanbase as well as evolve its concepts to attract new gamers to this franchise. This is going to be the Lord of the Rings RTS experience fans have been waiting for."

 

Developed in association with Middle-earth Enterprises, The Battle for Middle-earth 3: The Battle of the Five Armies is based primarily on the recently concluded The Hobbit trilogy, bringing with it an extensive campaign (playable both on- and offline) mixing RPG elements with the familiar Battle for Middle-earth RTS quality. Players will take control of Thorin and his Company as they set out to reclaim the Lonely Mountain from the terrible Smaug. Move strategically across Middle-earth using the all-new Living World Map, defeat the forces of Azog and the Necromancer, and raise your armies to prevent the destruction of all free folk.

 

Choose your side as you play online against your friends, taking command of one of eight unique factions. The Battle for Middle-earth 3: The Battle of the Five Armies sees the return of old favorites Gondor, Rohan, Mordor and Isengard, while adding the new, Hobbit-based factions of the noble Greenwood, sturdy Erebor, savage Gundabad and sinister Dol Guldur. Rise through the ranks of the official Battle for Middle-earth 3: The Battle of the Five Armies ladder and prove that you are the greatest commander in Middle-earth.

 

 

As you can imagine, I am currently picking my jaw up off the floor. It's looking very early days still, but still, I can glean so much promise from the first bits of information.

Here's hoping for modding tools.
