The BGT download is for a newer version.  How do I rectify this?  Can i just rename the 1.20 file to 1.18, or will that cause issues?

Well, selecting the correct forum to post and then typing what tool you used to get the above printout would help a bit.
I would do this ... my way: Extract all mods you have made research with and know what they entail and want to install(and presumably downloaded)... and generalized biffing & widescreen mod, then use the BiG World Fixpack's .bat to install it(the link is a direct download link), and then install the mods like they are said in the latest BiG World Project's .pdf file (minus the version tags), and then install the named last two mods.

It doesn't matter what happens ... it's always the same way no matter what versions are up down and there abouts.


Yep, Jarno Mikkola. my Mega Mod FAQ. Use of the BWS, and how to use it(scroll down that post a bit). 
OK, desert dweller, welcome to the sanity, you are free to search for the limit, it's out there, we drew it in the sand. Ouh, actually it was still snow then.. but anyways.

What installer are you using, the links are long outdated. I'm sorry but I have the impression you just posted an error message of some installer here without actually trying to find the downloads yourself?

-> the SHS links lead you to the current mod versions if you click on them.

-> Kerzenburgforum mods are here: https://www.baldurs-...difikationen.2/

-> Gibberlings3 mods are here: https://www.gibberlings3.net/files/

-> the Finch version is still available here: https://forums.beamd...g-ee-and-bgt/p1

I merged the two topics.

 

Again: the links you posted for the mods at SHS go to the correct download sites. That's the last 4 mods on your list.

 

The other mods you can find by following the links I posted.

 

So, I'm not sure what you are expecting. Do you want someone else to post all links separately? Are you looking for BWS help? BWS is outdated. I am not sure what state it is in, but you need to use the most current version, if you aren't already. And I guess downloading the mods by hand and providing them for BWS would be the way to go.

I was unaware BWS was out of date. :(  I'll try the most recent version if this falls through.

However, yes, the last 4 I can see now, and will download those manually for BWS.  My question though about BGT is the filename.  Do I just change that filename to 1.18, instead of 1.20, since the BWS is looking for 1.18?

No. As far as I remember at some point BWS will ask you to provide manually mods it can not download. At this moment for each mod you'll had to manually point BWS to a downloaded version, and upon BWS noticing that size/version/filename doesn't match you'll have the option to tell BWS "yeah whatever, install this one".

The result would be questionable though in case mod components composition was changed since last BWS update.

Very unfortunate.  BWS was the best method for me to install the game mods

What would you recommend as the new standard for those still wanting to play a modded game (primarily BGT, with minimal mega mods)

Have a look at Project Infinity. It's beta, but it's actively developped and currently your best bet.

It does look like the new standard, yes.  Very nice.  Thank you!
