Getting started

1. Download a preconverted INI package and extract it to a folder we will now call 'x'. (In such a way that e.g. 'commandbutton.ini' will be in 'x\data\ini\commandbutton.ini')

2. Make a new shortcut to the game, which has as path:
"C:\path\to\bfme\bfme.exe" -mod "x"

Where of course you replace 'bfme.exe' with the name of the game (e.g. 'lotrbfme.exe') and 'x' with the folder you made. Example:
"C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Battle for Middle-earth\lotrbfme.exe" -mod "D:\Bart\mods\supermod\"

3. Click this shortcut to run your modded (but currently unmodded) game.

I'm having trouble with the preconverted INIs! I downloaded them but can't extract them I keep getting errors. What should I do??


Alright now I got the INI files open through WinRAR, but I can't create a shortcut. I would really appreciate some help, either here or in my topic...

You wont need a licence for WinRAR, after the trial you'll get a message asking you to buy it, but it still works as normal.

Will FinalBIG editor work because I downloaded it but can't open, or is there another way besides Winrar?? What if I simply copy my ROTWK ini?? Or is Winrar the only way, and will you have to get a license to use it??

Solinx (Team Chamber Member) - Sunday August 12, 2007 - 17:40

The .rar file you mean? Winrar is the program you should use for that.

Captain Beremir - Sunday August 12, 2007 - 15:04

when downloading the INI what program should i use to open it. it seems to come out as different shapes/letters/numbers

Do you edit the new ini "configuration settings" files that you get in the mod folder, or edit the regular .ini? The new files you get in the folder are hard to read...

Well... when i get to step 3 i get a game.dat, but it doesnt display a reason, it just crashes.
