After long period of waiting, and almost complete roster change of the ACW Team, we bring you

3.5 Open Beta

of American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers

(crashy and buggy for now, we know, but we're fixing things every day,
to bring you the full and stable version soon)


Important

Current build of 3.5 Open Beta supports Warpath map based ACW campaign only.
However, users who don't own Warpath can still play the custom battles with all the new units!

Also, remember this is a BETA of 3.5, so several features aren't working yet and the installation is not as smooth as the full 3.6 version will hopefully be.

In the current 3.5 beta, research is disabled, but we're hoping to implement it in 3.6 or 3.7.

Installation


Detailed install info and video here: Twcenter.net

Requirements
1) Empire: Total War (preferably with Warpath addon)
2) ACW Brothers vs. Brothers 3.4.1 version (3.4 patched to 3.4.1)
3) husserlTW's Subs Power
4) NO OTHER MOD MUST BE INSTALLED

Process
1) Install ACW 3.4 and 3.4.1 patch (install instructions for each in the Latest Downloads/file link/ Description info)
2) install husserlTW's Subs Power launcher
3) download the ZoR - Open Beta 3.5
4) unzip the ZoR - Open Beta 3.5
5) run setup.exe and follow installer's instructions
6) Do not forget to select ZoR in the launcher, to run 3.5 Beta

It's really not as scary as it may look. If you're having any trouble, head to our FORUM and we'll help you out there. PLEASE DON'T USE COMMENTS BELOW HERE FOR TECH SUPPORT QUESTIONS (ACW team will not be answering them, other people might)!

We do not have any release date for 3.6 yet. Not even an estimate. Please do not ask about a release date, because we honestly just don't know.

Probably not soon. But you should know that this mod is in developement for a verry long time and it is verry stable. You allready can try it out without big fear for Problems. Sure some features are missing or not finished but if you ask me this Mod is much more fun than playing normal ETW

A few. But the upcoming 3.6 reporposed a lot more vanilla ships to give them a Civil War likeness. Too bad the game does not allow importing custom models, we could have nice ironclads then... :/

You need 3.5 but the launcher will still say 3.4.1.
The launch screen however, will say "Powered by ZoR" if you have Zone of Recruitment (which is 3.5) enabled.

Greetings!
To start, this is an awesome mod, thanks for making it and keep up the good work!
I've got one little problem: when I play a battle and it takes longer than 1 hour and 30 minutes (Something like that), my game crashes. Is this a bug or is it my computer that makes this problem?

Thx.
I got a lot less crashes once I lowered my graphics settings a bit. The settings that work fine for vanilla won't work fine for ACW, cause it's got more units. So lower them a bit, should help with the crashes. Not eliminate them, but prolly make em less frequent.
