no, thats not what I mean. you just cant see enough of the game, and as far as Ive read, you need a map by map fix of the zoom so itll work. its not just an ini hack or something, youre literally stuck so close to the fucking buildings you can only see 5 of them at the same time. ugh.
Homeworld2 atleast got a fucking awesome mod that made it immensely better. (complex 9) but BFME2, as much as I loved it back in the day, just needs an upgrade.

I enjoyed it when it came out, but it was the game that helped me realize I just didn't like RTS games very much in the first place and I had only really liked Battle for Middle Earth because it was Lord Of The Rings-y and I had played it over LAN with my best friends.
Building an all-troll army in BFME 1 in a six player team battle was just ... magical.I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom
You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

The first game was so good... Is it available on Origin I wonder? :)

I think both are abandonware.

I have difficulties playing any strategy game that is not Wargame or Supreme Commander since those games feature you being able to zoom out so one can see the whole map.

Hmm. It might be an artifact of the original game, which was more about small scale tactics then it's bigger cousin.

Itís not on the Origin store but EA havenít taken it off their website games list yet. According to Wikipedia the license has expired. Does that make it abandonware? I thought it might depend on terms made within the license agreement.

Even when something is abandonware it's still not legal to download it.
There's just no one who could accuse you for piracy. Grey zone.

It is legal for me to download something which I own. Atleast under austrian regulations.
