I have launched the installer on a friends computer just fine to test it. so i know now its just not going to work on this os anyone know if i can get a file or something to allow me to run the installer. A service pack or something or should i just fork out the money for ultimate.

Press "Windows key+R" it will open RUN
Type %appdata%
Press Enter

Now there is a folder which you will require to install map and all stuff

You cant. Server are closed by EA. If you wanna play multiplayer then LAN is only one option.

Windows 7 32 bit

I have one problem regarding hidden file of Battle of middle earth 2

I installed few maps(its just copy and paste) C:\Users\keyur\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files\Maps. But the problem is that some of the maps become hidden for some reason. It appears in game but I cant see in that folder. I also checked "Show hidden file and folder option". I also used search option to find particular file. But those things are not working any suggestion would be welcome...

Windows 7 Professional sp1 x64

I got mine working by doing:

-> win+r %appdata&
-> My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files
-> Made a new file called options.ini

AllHealthBars = no
AmbientVolume = 50.000000
AudioLOD = High
Brightness = 50
FlashTutorial = 0
GameSpyIPAddress =
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
MovieVolume = 70.000000
MusicVolume = 70.000000
Resolution = 1280 960
SFXVolume = 70.000000
ScrollFactor = 50
SendDelay = no
StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
TimeInGame = 5
TimesInGame = 6
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 70.000000

-> saved it
-> downloaded the SEE mod "See mod link"
-> followed instructions

Now this works for me on a 64 bit win7 os :3

AudioLOD = High
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = High
Resolution = 1024 768
StaticGameLOD = High
TimesInGame = 5

Please tell me if it works. (i havent reached home to test it, but i`m pretty sure that`s the problem because i have 2 different pc. One that works and one that doesnt work. The one that works has a 1280x1024 maximum resolution capable attached to the comp. The other one who doesnt work has a 1920x1080 res)
I thank you at all. very good, i solved it properly.

Still not working

I don't mean to rehash an old topic but i've tried everything under the sun to get BFME2 to work. I just found this thread and it seems it might have better results. I've updated my game, created the options.ini folder, created the 'maps' folder and everything else that was recommended. I'm running a legal copy with no NoCD alterations of any kind. I get a loading screen then it flashes once and I have to close it via Task Manager because it won't run properly. Any ideas?
