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)


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.


Detailed install info and video here:

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

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.

I know you have a lot on your plate with this mod but i'm curious, will you try to add the rebel yell audio during CSA infantry bayonet charges? Is it even do-able?

I already have the mod and everything and I love it! Great job on it!
Just curious, any rough estimate on when 3.6 will be coming out and will sea battles be in it?

3.6 is done. They're just trying to get an installer for it. And yes there are sea battles.

I need some help (and I cant find the solution of the forum). In battle no audio is being played at all, and I have no idea how to fix it. The audio works fine when I'm in the main title screen, but as soon as the battle starts, the music stops and I can't hear the muskets or cannons firing. If anyone knows how i can fix this or where someone else has already said how to fix this, it would be appreciated.
