      Note: if you are creating infantry for this game then CnC:Generals must be installed as well.
    • Lord of the Rings: Battle For Middle Earth
  • The following programs:
    • Winzip: For extracting compressed .zip files.
    • Gmax: Used to create models and more. Experience on how to use this program is needed.
