    Ok, so to get this all working, it will require a couple of installations. The most important things to remember are: 1. Make sure that you save the files to the proper location. I think its like program files/steam/steamapps/common/age of wonders: shadow magic. 2. make sure you install these in order or else youll get some old files replacing newer ones and thats no good.

    So here we go.

    Step 1: Install Age of Wonders Shadow Magic
    If you havent already done this, than this is of course the first thing you do.

    Step 2: Download and install the v1.4 unofficial patch
    The patch can be found here
    http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=661
    Remember to select the correct location to install.

    Step 3: Download and install Brave New World v2.0
    The mod can be found here
    http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=614&f=&st=100&ci=
    Again remember to install it to proper location.

    Step 4: Download and install Brave New World v3.0 Beta
    This beta mod can be downloaded from this link
    http://forums.heavengames.com/redir/http%3A//www.doack.campaigncreations.org/BNW%5Fv3%2E0%5FBeta%2Ezip
    Install in the same location.

    Step 5: Download and install Brave New World v3.2 update
    The update can be found at this link
    megaupload.com 38T3F91I
    Install to the same location

    Step 6: From the program files/..../Age of Wonders :Shadow magic launch the AOWSMsetup.exe
    It should give you a bunch of options to change the settings of the game to meet your computer. If the language box doesnt have English, select it. Then check the box for custom resources and select BNWv3.2

    Step 7: From the same location as the setup.exe run Enable BNW 3 extras.exe

    Step 7a: Technically the mod should be installed. Id recommend trying to run a game as one of the newer races or wizards just to make sure it worked. Note that I've tried running it through steam and it will almost always crash on me before a map can be started. I've had no problems though launching the game straight from the .exe file though.

    Step 8: Download and place the whitcliff map
    The map can be downloaded here
    http://aow2.heavengames.com/downloads/showfile.php?fileid=1056
    Be certain to place the map file in the .../age of wonders shadow magic/scenario/custom folder

    Assuming you did everything right the mod should now work. Remember that to what ive seen, the exe can't be launched through steam or the game will crash, so make sure to shortcut the .exe for the game.

    I'm surprised you would have the non-laziness ability to do something like this
