A Lord of the Rings game that's supposed to take place 15 years after the events of the last book/movie. Probably not canon.

Note: The Wii and PS3 versions are pretty much the same game, while the DS, PSP and PS2 versions are different.

Development Related Text

hack.txt has this message, along with a Kuju Entertainment developer's email address. It can also be found in one of the developer's previous games, Battalion Wars 2.

This file exists as a workaround to a bug in DVD emulation that leaves files open after they are supposed to be closed.

Stephen.Boissiere@kuju.com

DLL/DLL.txt contains a message leftover from Battalion Wars 2.

This directory contains DLL files for BW2.

The DLL file are of type .rso and the ELF DLL symbol files are of type .sel

Currently there are two DLLs:

 * ZLib
 * HomeButtonMenu

The DLLs are generated as part of the build process.
Please note each .ELF has to have a corresponding DLL symbol file (.sel).

Developer Message

A curious list of game names can be found at data/gamename.txt that seem to be for a strategy game.

terrorist strike
combat tatics
Military srike
advance tatics
Pure Advace

Combatics
assault
statergey strike
STRATICS

When read with a hex editor, a file called xxx32kpadding.xxx contains hundreds of lines that say "fingers crossed". The file, as the name implies, is 32kb in size.
