Great job with this mod, I thoroughly enjoyed the additions to the game.
I do have a question about installing the COMPLETE Dwiggs 5.0
At first I have my vanilla SM, then I DL Upatch1.4, and finally Dwiggs 5.0
Everything's fine at that point, and as long as I select Dwiggs5.0 in custom resources with remade scenarios I can play fine. But there are a few missing items such as descriptions, so I thought I'd check out Dwiggs 1.4 patch and update. But after I installed those, the mod stops working, even after I remake new scenarios.
So I guess my question is: how do I install the complete Dwiggs mod experience? Is there an order that I followed incorrectly? Or did I miss a step somewhere in the middle? I've searched up and down the forum and DL files, but only found the 3 files under the Stranger's name.
Hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about and can guide me on the right path!

I am anxious to start playing the dwiggs5 mod but can't seem to get it to function. This is my first attempt at playing a mod.
- I've set it as the custom resource.
(strangely i can't pick upatch1.4 in the list, although it is installed, while patch1.3 does appear in the list.)
- I've saved a scenario in the editor, thus working around the problem of the load-screen disappearing.
- Now the level loads and ambir welcomes me to the game.
BUT: the background remains at the choose wizard screen.
AND: the magicwand-cursor makes a million copies of itself as i move it across the screen.
PLUS: i can't do anything but ctrl/alt/del.
Can somebody please tell me what i am doing wrong?

I think patch 1.4 doesn't show up in the list because it becomes the default resources.

Pretty sure my GOG version was 1.3 and I did not run 1.4 twice.
All fine thus far.

Hello i have just gotten Aowsm from steam and i have installed the u1.4 meaning i see it on the bottom right corner. I really want to play the Dwiggs mod. So i downloaded the mod and i chose it in Setup then i opened up my game and nothing changed then i opened up the orange 5 file and that one didnt have the u1.4 on the bottom right. But when i open up the editor all the new stuff is available. Whats wrong i want to play Descent to Undermountain for DWIGGS 5.0 __V 2_1 or any other map but they wont work. Anyone know why?

I just tried Dwiggs_5 for the first time recently; and everything seemed to work alright. I am still getting used to the mod with only two games under my belt.
My first hunch as to why you can not seem to get this mod to work correctly is...
I believe that you must have failed to check off the box to allow custom resources when you first installed this game.
Is my hunch correct? (Sometimes they are)!
If so, you need to re-install this game again and be certain to check the box (you should get some weird message to the effect that custom resources might not be supported or something) if you are going to use any mods.
If my hunch was wrong, then I'm sorry; and I don't know how to help.
I have never tried the scenario Descent to Undermountain; but I do know that is not like the average scenario. I think the scenario comes with some special instructions on how to install/set-up the scenario properly.
Good luck and cheers!

I downloaded Descent to Undermountain and gave it a try as humans. The game got to day 27 when I experienced the independent-hangs and never ends it's turn bug.
I did notice that right after the last (undead) wizard began it's turn at the end of day 27...the events list posted an 'invisible message' and actually advanced just as if a message was triggered; but without actually displaying any message.
I will likely forfeit the match and try it over again sometime.

Playing AOW:SM again after many years. Wonderful game.
Downloaded and playing Dwiggs 5.0 to change it up a bit. Wonderful mod. Thanks for all involved.

Hello to any of the old Dwiggs players!
