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.

ACWDevelopmentTeam Apr 28 2014, 7:13am replied:

- More custom units for Union and Confederacy than ever before (96 CSA, 100 USA), with custom models/textures, including custom made historic Union/Confederate generals
- Completely functional minor factions with historic units
- Custom historic weapon models for all units
- New types of units such as sharpshooters, skirmishers, raider cavalry, lancers
- New types of artillery such as mortars and heavy guns
- Sea battles with repurposed vanilla ships (ETW does not allow importing custom ship models, so sadly no ironclads)
- Many stats reworked and fine tuned, so battles play out more according to historic realism (no charging lines of rifles with cavalry anymore if you don't want a bloodbath), artillery projectiles reworked
- All new custom made unit icons and infocards
- and many more

That sounds really cool. And I understand that I am not the one making this mod, but I think it would make sense if the Union had more large cities than the Confederacy. The population differential in 1861 was around 20 million Union citizens and 9 million Confederate citizens. I understand that maybe you want equal gameplay for both sides but the Confederacy was always fighting an uphill battle, they were never on the same level as the Union.
