How to install a player made map:

Maps go in a BFME Folder in your Application Data, which is a hidden folder.

Open My Computer
Now, in the address bar, type "%appdata%" without the quotes
This takes you to your Application Data folder.
Right-click the 'space' (ie. not another folder or file) and select properties.
Uncheck 'Hidden'

The Application Data folder is now viewable without having to type %appdata% in everytime.

C:\Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data
on Windows Vista, the folder's location is: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\

It should be obvious from the address bar how you can get to the folder.

Go to:
My Battle for Middle-earth Files
My Battle for Middle-earth (tm) II Files
Whatever the ROTWK Folder is called


You download maps to this folder.
If you download a map, it will be compressed in a ZIP or RAR file, so make sure you extract it.

You can now play the maps you have downloaded.

Thanks m@tt. Why don't explain you "How to install a patch": it's not simple. If I've got non-original gamecopy, I have to remove original game.dat, install patch,than replace it.... . Simply, nobody dont know how to add them.

Post your problem in the Worldbuilder forum, rather than here. And please be more specific :)
