Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
To LuziferX

you have most likely used a no dvd or no cd crack on this game before i suggest you uninstall the game remove the folder for the game in program files after you have uninstalled it if the setup has not done so

game is normally located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts
after you have removed everything reset your computer then install the game again and run your patch this should work

also to get the game going you will need to open notepad and save it as options.ini make sure it doesnt make it a text file then place the file in
C:\Users\what ever your username is\AppData\Roaming\My The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king File

i dont know if you have to add anything to the options.ini file you have to make if you do you can add this to the file when you make it in notepad and save it as options.ini

ini fix does not work

Hi, I followed the ini instructions for creating the new file and it does not resolve the issue. I have a brand new alienware computer with plenty of memory and the ati radeon hd 5800 series video card.

game gets to the launch page and then crashes with windows telling me the game has a problem and is shutting down.

I also tried modifying the uac settings as posted on the ea website.

I placed the file in the location specified for windows 7 users and it is definitely saved as an ini file

anyhelpor guidance you can provide is much appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

I've had a similar problem, once I attempt to load via disc/shortcut it just hangs on the splash screen. I've created the Options.ini and allowed it to run. Still the splash screen wont load. Any advice out there? My max resolution is 1400x900 so should i put that into the Opions.ini or something else?

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.

After leaving it for about 6minutes it then just crashes. It never loads the game nor gets off the splash screen. When i go into task manager/processes it says it's just not responding so its jsut instantly hanging. Just a bit more food for though. If you can help I'd much appreciate it!

Ive look all over and it seems that only the 32bit Win7 will run this? I dont have the expansion pack (BfME2) installed yet. All i get are the two splash screens and the 2nd core of my CPU goes to 100% and it just hangs until i stop it.
