1.12 addon is not supposed to work for version other than 1.12.

A simpler solution would be to get BfW 1.12 and run the trilogy on it.

Edit: I hadn't seen Ravana's post. :oops:

As I fixed my mistake(same old with every steam game) it works! :D
Started the first scenario yesterday. Of course I have to become familiar with the Elementals.
I use the actual WoL 1.1.9 and after an hour gameplay there are no bugs (that means nothing, I know ;) )

First impression: I love the dialogues between Myra and Blondie :D

Even if you get it working, that may still be pretty overwhelming for a beginner - note that this trilogy has over 100 scenarios and is quite complex. It will probably make more sense after playing the mainline campaigns that come with the game (it fills in the backstory of some characters from the mainline campaigns).
I am new to BfW but not to that kind of games. But I guess You are right. It is always a shame that one can't experience great campaigns in a new game as long as one tries to learn the fine mechanics of a game and makes a lot of beginner mistakes. Replaying these campaigns later is not much fun.

Would You recommend that I continue "Rise of Wesnoth" first? (it is recommended to be played before "Library of...whatever")
The game is about Wesnoth (mostly), so understanding the origins would be recommended. :)

At start I played "Two Brothers" because of the speech set, then started with "Orcish Incursion" but then I realized(after finding the official timeline) that I was hopping through the ages and stopped immediately. Without a clue about the historical context I would miss a lot of fun, I think. That's why I wanted to play the campaigns in "correct order".
Alas, the wiki is confusing for beginners. I found the inofficial timeline of the Dragon Trilogy by coincidence.(I still don't know who decides, what's canon and what not).
Would be great if there is a chronocal list of campaigns or a COMPLETE timeline. Still don't know what this "technological" era is.

Btw, Genesis predates (at least in the wesnoth 'timeline') A Song of Fire. But their lore conflicts.
Have found it. What Eras does it need?

Library of Kratemaqht.

Well...UMC is per definition not canon, so those origins are not canon either. (Actually it's the other way around. Only stuff in mainline (core game) is canon, everything else is up for debate.)

There is one for mainline (canon) campaigns.
You can also order them in the campaign choosing dialog by clicking on 'Dates', which orders your campaigns (approximate) chronologically. (Works for mainline campaigns properly, others not so much.)

None. But it needs 'Genesis Resources'.
Now please stop hijacking this thread.

The Rise of Wesnoth is chronologically the first mainline campaign, but it's a fairly difficult campaign not really intended for beginners - if you decide to play that next, I would try it on the easiest difficulty level.

There isn't really a "correct order" since the campaigns themselves were not actually written in chronological order, so they usually don't assume any knowledge of other campaigns. For example, Heir to the Throne was the first campaign written, even though it takes place roughly in the middle of the timeline, so obviously it doesn't depend on knowing any of the other campaigns (which were not even written yet when it was created).

I would recommend starting out with the campaigns marked "Novice level" first before moving on to "Intermediate level" or "Expert level" or add-on campaigns. An Orcish Incursion is a good choice for beginners. (The story itself has very little connection with other campaigns.)
