American Civil War Mod

30/12/2015: 3.6.2 Full Installer released

(Windows only, no Mac!)


ACW 3.6.2 Full Installer


Installation:
1. Completely uninstall Empire and all mods
2. re-install Empire and Warpath, install no other mods
3. Download and extract 3.6.2 installer.
4. Run the installer and point it to your Empire folder (usually C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War) and let it install.
That's it!

Launching:
1. Make sure Steam is running. Game will crash during launch if it's not.
2. Run ACW3 launcher.
3. Go to "Submods", unclick and reclick "Zone of Recruitment"
4. Select US or CS (if you launch US, you can't play CS campaign and the other way around).
5. Play game.

Installation of new ACW maps and the Mexican-American War units for quick battles:
1. Go to Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War\ACW\SubMods\ZoR folder
2. manually copy bg_maps.pack and bg_maw.pack to Steam\steamapps\common\Empire Total War\data
3. Don't use the Mexican general, he's bugged.

Notes:
1. Single battles and siege battles work fine.
2. Multiplayer battles work fine (both players need to launch the same, both as US or both as CS)
3. If you get battle crashes lower your graphics a bit and disable Steam Overlay.
4. Campaign works fine too, until the point when it can sometimes randomly crash. Why it randomly crashes nobody knows. Multiple saves might help you continue the campaign. Without Warpath the campaign in 3.6.2 will be all messed up.
5. For all additional questions, go to the forum, please. Tech questions in comments here will not be answered, sorry, since there's noone available to answer them.

PLEASE DON'T USE COMMENTS BELOW HERE FOR TECH SUPPORT QUESTIONS. THIS ISN'T THE PLACE TO ASK THEM AND THE DEVS WON'T BE ANSWERING THEM. PLEASE USE THE TECH SUPPORT FORUM INSTEAD.

When I go to start the mod it tells me there is something in the data folder that isn't part of the vanilla or ACW and it asks me whether I want to continue or cancel, if I hit cancel it goes into a black screen, then crashes, or if it doesn't go to black it goes to the start up screen where it says special thanks and stuff then crashes, please help?
