I start the game up, it goes to the logo and after a minute it does this: https://imgur.com/a/83doLXI

Download both patches and apply them one after another. Then make sure in the appdata, roaming, battle for middle earth folder, there is an options.ini file in the folder or game won't work.
if not there, open notepad, paste:
AudioLOD = Low
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = VeryLow
Resolution = 800 600
StaticGameLOD = VeryLow
TimesInGame = 1
then save notepad file as options.ini into the folder. runs for me.

I downloaded the game to mega. After 5 minutes of playing all my troops died. How do I fix this ?

Says "2-3 days left" is this normal download time? If so, is it worth the wait?

I've downloaded the full BFME game folder from Mega that you provided (NOT THE ISO VERSION) amunet but when I ran lotrbfme.exe The logo popped up but then it just stalled and nothing would happen? It would just stay as https://imgur.com/a/fMuUnzQ
I suspect the game itself isn't even responding as shown in this link in Task Manager: https://imgur.com/a/w7q8Sgy
*note I also tried diagnostic tool and ran it in compatability mode in Windows XP service pack 3 and still nothing happens except the link provided. Could it be something to do with my firewall/security. Please help!!! *I'll update if I manage to fix this problem.

Same question as BFME, I have downloaded and am running the .exe shown by the picture, but it still requests a CD.

I'm running the lotrbfme.exe but it's still asking for a disk. Any help?

@Wiseguy @Carl @IngonAungAung
That's because you're using the wrong exe to play BFME.
The exe you should be using is lotrbfme.exe.
Don't use Autorun.exe as all BFME files are already included.
Please refer to the screenshot linked below as a guide for what exe you should use

@Jayballs Forget the ISO. Forget the virtual drive.
Download the game via the Mega link below then run BFME from the EXE (See screenshot for reference https://i.imgur.com/23GU7v6.png).

the iso is mounted game is installed but when i try to run it, it says to insert the cd when it is cleary already mounted on a virtual drive. what the heck am i doing wrong. power iso and windows 7 (i know its outdated but the game is supposed to be compatible). i have never been able to play this game, someone help fulfill this 25 year olds childhood dream...

I installed the game and everything looks good but I when I launch it and click play it says I need to insert the CD. I used daemon tools lite to mount the image but it still gives me the same message. Anyone have a similar issue?

@TOBI Stahoval jste BFME prostřednictvím možnosti stahování v horní části této stránky nebo prostřednictvím odkazu Mega, který jsem zde uvedl v komentářích?
Zkoušel jsem hru z mega odkazu zpátky a funguje to dobře. Stačí je spustit z exe (viz obrázek níže).

The "code" is the games CD Key.
Try the following CD Keys below...

Alright I have it downloaded but it's asking for a code. What do I need to do to make it work?
Apple 2018-01-17 -3 points
i can´t get it to work i have download the game but it says that i need a code but i do not have one so how do i do

I've uploaded the full BFME game folder to Mega (Link below) for any who are having trouble. This took me over 12 hours just to upload so feel free to reupload the game to Mega or any similar site.
The game folder is compressed into a .zip so you'll need a program like WinRaR or 7zip (Just run the game from the launcher and it should work fine).
You also don't need a DOS emulator for this. It works fine for me without one.

Great game thanks! One of my favorites and been looking for it awhile. Be sure to use an ISO reader to mount the disk to virtual drive. Then run it on autoplay. I use Ultra ISO. Back to second breakfast, Peace!
