The precursor to my Kings of the West mod, Shadows of Evil contains many of my previously released mini-mods combined into one large mod. The mod focuses on Mordor and Isengard with no changes to Gondor or Rohan.

Some of the basics of the mod:

  • Compatible with patch 1.03 of BFME I as well as online multiplayer.

  • Completely finished and released mod: no bugs, errors, unfinished text or buttons.

  • Additions or changes to Gameplay:

  • New Mordor Hero: Khamul the Easterling. Not the nazgul Khamul but rather a rhun pikeman who leads by example with his leadership (+250 Experience, +50% Armor, +200% Damage ), Pillage, and Blade Master powers. At a cost of only 1200 he is the perfect early game hero for mordor.

  • Adds the Witch-King on foot, with a toggle to mount his Fellbeast

  • Adds the following powers to the Witch-King on foot:
  • *Leadership (+100% Experience, +50% Armor, +200% Damage),
    *Toggle between War Mace and Sword,
    *'Morgul Blade' Special Power (Reduces target Speed to 25%, armour to 50%, and Damage to 50%),
    *'The Black Breath' (Basically Saruman's Wormtongue power with a slightly larger radius),
    *'This is my Hour' (Blast that kills all enemy heroes in radius... includes new audio and an awesome new FX),
    *Mount Fellbeast

  • The following powers are added to Saruman, who now starts at level 10:
  • *"Industry" (Spell similar to the existing Industry only with a base-wide radius)
    *"Word of Power" (Red WoP identical to Gandalf's WoP, only its red)

  • The mod also contains 12 new team colors for Skirmish and Multiplayer (in addition to the original colors). The colors included are:
  • -2 shades of grey
    -Black, white
    -New red, blue, teal, gold, and yellow
    -Hot Pink and Neon Green
    -Gray Green (Awesome Rohan/Fellowship color. It's the color of the Fellowship's Lothlorien cloaks)

    To download the mod you can click on the direct link below, or you can visit my website and download it there on the 'downloads' page.

    The mod comes with an installer that you can run for easy installation.

    If you have any comments on the mod or if you find a bug or error, please visit my forums via the link below and tell me about it.

    I have installed this mod and all, but when I click on the shadows of evil shortcut it starts up but then says: Game crash- iniParseFXList_KhamulDieToRespawn not found! Either add the FXList or remove the reference to it.

    Error parsing field 'DeathFX' in block 'object' in file 'Data\INI\Object\evilfaction\,mordorkhamul.ini',line507.

    Error parsing INI block' DeathFX' in file'Data\INI\Object\evilfaction\,mordorkhamul.ini',line507.

    Because of the secerity of this error the game will now exit.

    Sorry for being so mean :( ,I was just frustrated that I had to get patch 1.03.Again REAL sorry about that mean comment...

    GothmogtheOrc (Team Chamber Member) - Wednesday July 15, 2009 - 11:41

    @yams in a can: all of my mods work perfectly. I test them extensively before releasing, including on other machines. If you are experiencing problems then they are because of something on your end. If you have a clean official copy of bfme1 installed and patched up to 1.03 the mod will work fine. My mod is not compatible with any mod that alters your bfme root directory (the Elvenstar mod for example) so if you have installed such a mod, none of my mods would work on your machine until you reinstall bfme (thus getting rid of the other mod).

    Also, please remember that I offer these mods for download because I want others to be able to enjoy them as much as I do. I am under no obligation to do anything for you, so please bear that in mind before you post statements such as "you better respond" or "address them", which frankly come across the wrong way and are rather rude.

    Finally, I do not check these messages very often so for prompt replies and assistance, please post in my forums so that I will see your message. Thanks. -Gto
