If you are a fan of the Lord of the Rings franchise, you might have played the real-time strategy game LotR: War of the Ring, released in 2003. The game lets you control the forces of good or evil in the epic battles of Middle-earth. However, if you have lost or damaged your original CD, or if you want to play the game on a modern computer without a CD drive, you might be looking for a way to play it without a CD.
Fortunately, there is a solution: a No-CD Fixed EXE file. This is a modified version of the game's executable file that bypasses the CD check and allows you to run the game without inserting the CD. You can download this file from various websites that offer game patches and cracks, such as GameCopyWorld or MegaGames. However, be careful when downloading files from unknown sources, as they might contain viruses or malware.
To use the No-CD Fixed EXE file, you need to follow these steps:
Make sure you have installed the game on your computer and updated it to the latest version (1.01).
Download the No-CD Fixed EXE file for your version of the game (English, French, German, etc.) from a reliable website.
Extract the file from the archive and copy it to your game folder, replacing the original WarOfTheRing.exe file.
Run the game as usual and enjoy!
Note that using a No-CD Fixed EXE file might violate the terms of service of the game and its publisher, so use it at your own risk. Also, some antivirus programs might detect the file as a threat and block it, so you might need to disable your antivirus or add an exception for the file.
With this method, you can play LotR: War of the Ring without a CD and relive the adventures of Frodo, Aragorn, Gandalf and others in Middle-earth. Have fun!
If you want to enhance your gaming experience, you might also be interested in some of the mods and patches that have been created by the fan community for LotR: War of the Ring. These include:
The Unofficial Patch 1.02, which fixes some bugs and balance issues, adds new maps and units, and improves the AI and graphics of the game. You can download it from ModDB or The 3rd Age.
The War of the Ring Expanded Edition, which adds new factions, heroes, units, buildings, abilities, and features to the game, making it more diverse and challenging. You can download it from ModDB or The 3rd Age.
The Battle for Middle-earth Conversion Mod, which converts the game to the style and gameplay of its sequel, LotR: The Battle for Middle-earth. You can download it from ModDB or The 3rd Age.
To install these mods and patches, you need to follow the instructions provided by their creators. Usually, you need to extract the files from the archives and copy them to your game folder, overwriting the original files. However, some mods might require additional steps or tools, such as editing the registry or using a mod launcher.
Before installing any mod or patch, make sure you backup your original game files and savegames, in case something goes wrong or you want to revert to the vanilla version of the game. Also, be aware that some mods and patches might not be compatible with each other or with the No-CD Fixed EXE file, so you might need to choose which ones you want to use.
With these mods and patches, you can customize LotR: War of the Ring to your liking and enjoy new content and features that will make your game more fun and immersive. Happy gaming!
