Windows 7: LOTR Battle For Middle Earth 2

28 May 2010   #31

Windows 7 64bit

I added the Options file to the My Battle for Middle-earth Files folder (which I had to run a search for as it was hidden) and the game booted up and worked! Then I closed the game and when I opened it again I got the same EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION error as before. Someone suggested I change the shortcut target to "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm)\lotrbfme.exe" & " -xres 1024 -yres 768 -noshellmap" but that didn't work either.

Any ideas? I'm actually trying to run BFME 1, not 2. But the problem is the same as far as I gather.

windows 7 ultimate
Solution found

Guys after a months long search at last i have my game up and running

After doing all this if your game hangs then create the options.ini folder as mentined in the previuos posts.And that will let you get into the game test it first in skirmish for 10 mins and then go online to play.. have fun gaming guys:))))))

There exists a BUG that some people experience in Rise of the Witch King where you are automatically defeated 3 minutes and 30 seconds after any particular battle begins. EA Tech Support tells me it is a safety feature, such that if the computer thinks you have a cracked (pirated) version of the game, it will cause you to loose at the 3 minute 30 second mark.

Uninstall both BFME II and BFMEII: RotWK
- run "ccleaner" to clean out both your computer and registry (or any other registry cleaner)
(can be downloaded free here: CCleaner - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET )

- download and save each game's respective patch (remember the location you save them to)

-reboot in safe mode (hold F8 while the computer is rebooting)

-install BFMEII, then ROTWK

-once both games have been installed in safe mode, locate the patches for both games which you saved earlier, and run both of them (still in safe mode).

-reboot your computer normally and you should be good to go!

then tick
Show hidden files, folders, and drives
