I hope you were able to get it to work.   Of course the response by the MS person was useless.

I had a problem with this game as well.   Searching on the web for this issue I found this reply.

the game was not allowed to create an options.ini in the C:\Users\[your login name]\AppData\Roaming\My Battle for Middle-earth(tm) Files folder. So if you don't see an options.ini you'll have to create one yourself... it should contain the following lines:


AllHealthBars = yes
AlternateMouseSetup = no
AmbientVolume = 50
AudioLOD = High
Brightness = 50
FixedStaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
FlashTutorial = 0
HasSeenLogoMovies = yes
HeatEffects = yes
IdealStaticGameLOD = Low
IsThreadedLoad = yes
MovieVolume = 70
MusicVolume = 70
Resolution = 1680 1050
SFXVolume = 70
ScrollFactor = 50
StaticGameLOD = UltraHigh
TimesInGame = 54
UnitDecals = yes
UseEAX3 = no
VoiceVolume = 70

you will have to adjust the resolution to that of your own screen!

It worked for me.....
