Installation
------------
Copy the bfme2.5.big into
C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files
(note this may be hidden)
Run the sortcut.

Please note if you installed battle for middle earth 2 somewhere diferent to the default path
"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm) II"
you will have to open properties of the shortcut, and change the start it box to where you installed, for example it might look like this
"E:\Games\Battle for middle earth 2"

Then change the the first part of the target box
("C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth (tm) II")
To where you installed bfme2. So it would look like this
"E:\Games\Battle for middle earth 2" -mod bfme2.5.big

just make sure you dont remove the command at the end.


CAN SUMONE EXPLAIN THIS INSTRUCTION PROPERLY...I HAVE NO SUCH FOLDER AT ALL..I INSTALLED IN DEFAULT C:/PROGRAM FILES/...

Copy the bfme2.5.big into
C:\Documents and Settings\Tom\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II Files
(note this may be hidden)
Run the sortcut.

If you haven't saved a game or created a map on your current installation that folder wont exist. Try opening the map editor and saving a blank map, or start up the game, save a game, then exit the game, and see if the folder is there.

is it the application data folder you cant find because i know that is hidden.
Try copy and pasteing the address
C:\Documents and Settings\*your user name*\Application Data\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) II
in the address box, only ur own user name where it says your user name.
