LOTR BFME DirectX Error fix

After installing Lord of the Rings Battle For Middle Earth 2 I kept getting DirectX Errors, and the program wouldn’t start.


I realized that somehow the program wasn’t able to change resolution.

To fix this I added -xres 1680 -yres 1050 after the quotes in the shortcut.

“C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Battle for Middle-earth ™ II\lotrbfme2.exe” -xres 1680 -yres 1050

1680 and 1050 is my widescreen resolution, you should add whatever resolution you have set in windows if you get this problem.

Hope this helps
