Aargxl Unplayable for me!

I did

[Edit]0)Have UPv1.4 already on
1)Install BMW2.0
2)Install BMW3.0 Beta
3)Install BMW3.2
4)Make backup folders and use the data files you provide going with the map
5)Turn on BMW3.2 custom resources

I tried starting the map as two different races, trying the second one with the original BMW3.2 data files instead of your map ones, and both times could not open the map, just being able to see the starting screen of it.

6)I tried if other stuff also doesn't run for me on BMW3.2, but I could generate and play a map without a problem.

p.s. as mapmaker, you can set choosable races yourself, as I was seeing the default human player option was the Mongols, planned for AI.

Last words: It would be great if this map was playable, it sounds exciting and fun on first glance!

Aargxl I figured I was being dumb, as I had forgotten to hit those "Install BMW Extras" & "Enable BMW Extras" buttons, so I tried it with those now... but I did not succeed playing the map :(

[Edit] I did it!!
Need to get the order just right!
So for those who wanna play this but haven't got already their testing of mods and such done, here is the full list how it should work:

1) Get Age of Wonders Shadow Magic up to the latest official v1.3 patch
2) Install Unofficial patch v1.4 over it (get it on this sites "Downloads Home" link).
3) Install UPatchv1.5 (short naming of Unofficial patch name continuiation) over this one (get it on this sites' forum)
4) Install UPatchv1.5 fixes (from this sites' download section/Mods)
5) Install BNW2.0 (Short for Brave New World version 2) from this sites' mod download section.
6) Install BNW3.0 Beta over this (get it by doing a websearch on it - they link to the other BNW related downloads there too).
7) Install BNW3.2 over it (get it from the same page as BNW3.0).
8)Use "Enable BNW 3 Extras" application in your game folder
9A) Go to your games Resource folder, make a backup folder for copies of the BNW3.2 files in it, and one for this maps' files.
9B) Check the Recource files of this game, and in another window (The game Resources folder), mark all same-named files, (18 in total), copy them into the backup BNW3.2 folder.
9C) Copy this maps resource files into both your Resources folder, as well as into the new, empty folder (so you can swap them from here quickly later).

This will make the map work!

After ending the play session, you might wanna swap back to "normal" mode, and while I haven't tried it yet, I will go the safe route as follows:

10) After ending the game, copy the backup BMW3.2 folder files over this maps' ones in your recource folder.
12) Hit "Disable BNW 3 Extras" in your game folder.
