I wasn't sure about the ruleset I used but I think it is sort of a mixture of the standard and the UPatch 1.4

---- Sorry for that problem! I tried fixing it - didn't work :( You will need Wizards and Heroes 3 mod for this. ---

This is my second attempt on an Age of Wonders map, this time with the shadow world. It is also an older map of mine.
In my personal opinion I like this map better a little bit considering the looks.
I have made a third map that I'm play testing at the moment. It will need some "repair", or in other words, I need to work on it more first.
I'm also in the middle of a 5 map campaign.

I hope you enjoy this map and leave some comments. Thanks!
Let me know about bugs and other stuff you find that I should work on :)

As for the password, same comment as on my first map World of thousand lights.

Unlike my first, this map is in English only!

Either map does not have a ton of events, only few. I simply enjoy(ed) fighting. =) My campaign is going to have more story/events to it.

Rising of the shadow

Once again Lolana has come back from the dead and united the creatures of the shadow to stand up against her enemies and conquer the land.
Without knowing Lolana is back the dark elves and the light elves have once again allied and forgot about all their differences to blow the dwarves off Hindira, the holy land.
Meanwhile Ogran, of the undead, allies with a new born race to become the king of Hindira.
Lolana in her darkness however grows and becomes stronger every day, smiling about Hindira's children fighting each other.

Lal almost yes
I've tested with another maps and all is ok...
It's only happeneing with yours 2 maps :( and with password, I can't see your work :(
too bad for me !
AnderszPhilip Same problem for me, can't start the map:(

hmmm... I really don't see why... I'll post on the forums and ask what a possible reason could be.

Edit: do you maybe have a mod active on the setup screen when you start the map?!

The Groll Same Problem here.

Both maps are unable to be loaded. If the loading barin full the game hangs up. The cursor slides and draws a track.

I think we all have upatch standart 1.4 installed. Are you sure not have made a mod?
Would be nice to have the password so that we can open and save the map under the right upatch 1.4 standard.
But you should do it yourself and upload a working version.
Minimaps look interesting.
Are you realy sure you have AoWSM under uptach 1.4 running as you open and save the maps in the editor?

Groll, I already tried saving it under the default setting. Still didn't work, for some reason it doesn't take it. The map was originally created without any mod. Before I submitted the file I opened it under WH3 and did a couple things under options. So you'll need WH3 to play- runs fine with my WH3 and locks up when I have it at default, too. Sorry for that!
The Groll Sorry Kyria but I don´t understand.
What is WH3? Is it Zirkel der Zauberer?
Or is it Shadow Magic?
I strongly recomment that is the map was not made under Shadow Magic that you open it again in the Shadow Magic Editor and save it there.
As it is here all people will have problems with it.
No one plays "Zirkel der Zauberer" anymore. ;-)
I realy would like to take a look at your both maps.
Inform us when you have uploaded a version here that works under SM, please.
Here is the thread where you can post a line when you have updated something.,5022,,60
Hope you get it to work. I´m curious. Maybe release the password.
To prtect maps with passowrd is only sensible when there are things inside a map that realy needs to be protected, like difficult events that if they would be changed by players, crash the map or takes away the fun of a map.
You can´t hide the landscape anyhow because there are cheat codes that show your map in a running game ;-)
So you can only protect the events with the password. And most, if there are not to complex events in a map it is not necessary.
Hope for a next version :-) that runs on my machine.

No, this is playable with Shadow Magic.

WH3 is the Wizards and Heroes 3 Mod!

What is Zirkel der Zauberer?!
