The Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-Earth 2 - Arcade Edition
Zen Jiriki (Creator of The Arcade Edition mod)
Installation Guide Updated For The Rise Of The Witch-King Expansion
1) Unrar or unzip the folder "ArcadeEdition" to your main Battle For Middle-Earth 2: Rise Of the Witch-King directory.
2) In this directory, right-click on the lotrbfme2ep1.exe and create a new shortcut.
3) Right click on the shortcut you just created and select Properties. Where it says Target there will be the path where the executable for the game is located, which obviously is in your BFME2:ROTWK directory.
"E:/Games/The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king/lotrbfme2ep1.exe" <---- that is mine, yours will be different.
4) Now we will add the required commands to get this shortcut to run the game using the mod. Below you will see that after the initial command line to run the game, theres a 'space' then the -mod command, another space then the directory where the mod is placed.
You will see similarities here except that for the mod to run the last directory is changed to the folder, not the exe as is normal.
Below is how my shortcut is set up. All you need to do is modify it to read to the install directory of where your game is located.
"E:/Games/The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king/lotrbfme2ep1.exe" -mod "E:/Games/The Lord of the Rings, The Rise of the Witch-king/ArcadeEdition"
