  1. To every one asking all you have to do is put the file BFME2 directly on the C/programs directory and run the autorun, and it should work, not asking for the disk!

  2. there doesnt seem to be an exe. there is an autorun, im sure its probably my own failing but i dont understand which filesneed to be fed through daemon tools?

  3. if I put the rar file into the DAEMON tools it puts the movies loadingring file outside of the folder and it cant download the game because of this

  4. So I downloaded THE_BATTLE_FOR_MIDDLE-EARTH.RAR, but that just seems to be a file of some kind. I can’t follow the instructions and extract it to desktop. There is no folder to extract.

    • Right-click on the .RAR file and select “Show more options” (usually at the bottom of the contextual menu that pops up), from there you will see the option to extract files
