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, 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. Run ACW3 launcher.
2. Go to "Submods", unclick and re-click "Zone of Recruitment"
3. Select US or CS (if you launch US, you can't play CS campaign and the other way around).
4. Enjoy 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

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.
5. For all additional questions, go to the forum, please. Tech questions in comments here will be ignored, sorry.

Sorry to nag you but I was just interested in knowing why minor nations are not playable. Also are you planning on making minor nations playable in custom battles?

Minor nations are playable in custom battles already and have been for a while. They're only not playable in campaign, because this is the US Civil War mod, not a global 1860's mod and making minors playable would require too much modding effort.

IUnderstand all the trouble, and that you're being asked that a lot, but...

When the new Version will be out? I'm dying to see it. To play all the magnificent things, that are in 3.6, but without crashing the Campaign, and stuff.

I mean, Can I hope to have it in near future, or is this hopeless?

I'm on turn 80 right now without a crash. I think the trick is that you have to save each turn and save on a couple different versions. Sometimes it's the individual file that gets corrupted and if you load a different version and do something in game, it won't crash. Just my observation.

Wow, Thanks Friend! Thanks a lot, I will certainly try that!

I played a lot, hoping to overcome the bug, but failed ultimately every single time...

You sir, dared me to try again, and you have my gratitude!

ACWDevelopmentTeam - this may actually work, Who knows?

On turn 95 now and still no campaign crash. I space out my saves just in case of a crash so I can jump back a few turns if need be and do something different to avoid whatever action triggered the crash. I do have an occasional battle crash, but I think that's because I deploy 30-40 unit armies in battle.

Yeah, That's actually very Vailuable information, you know...

Exactly that can make a difference! :D

Tyler:
If you found any pattern as to what triggered the campaign crash, what the AI did, what minors did, etc, and post your findings to our forum, maybe you could help us track down the bug. Twcenter.net

I'd love to see it too, but noone available to work on that, so for now, I do not expect any new version. The campaign crash is nto a simple bug that can be removed, but a complex set of issues that we can't even locate, many to do with Empire's difficult and mod-unfriendly file structure.

Mmm... Well I'm risking to sound like idiot, but...

Have you never considered to ask other modders for help?
I know it's a questioin of honor and stuff, but there are a lot of good modder teams out there. I'm sure there are even those that admire your mod too.

I think, that if you would give it a try, people would respond. This is a crule world, obviously, but it's not consisted of only bad people.

And yeah I know it's a matter of pride, and all, but...
Please Don't let the mod Die. It was one of my first serious Total war mods.

If i would tell you the circumstances, and impact it has taken on me, you simply wouldn't believe.
So... It's just a suggestion. Pride and onlu your names in credits might not be as valuble, as the mod's future.

Especially, since it's starting to actually taking the final Form. The proper ships. Other Nation's armies. (And god damn - Carribean... That's Harcore!).
Not even mentioning the Amazing, Rdiculous, Fantastic amount of special Units for both Union andConfederscy.
(God, I love the New York Polish regiment. I allways thought only I knew about them! Well... Until it appeared in North & South: First Manasssas too XD)

Just please, Don't let the glorious history of the mod end here. It deserves better fate!

Has nothing at all to do with honour or pride. If you'd read our forums ( Twcenter.net ), you'd notice we have been posting calls for help from modders, volunteers, amateur coders for a couple years now. As you can see from the absence of progress, these calls have had very little effect... Modding a game as difficult to mod as this one takes A) knowledge and skill, B) a ton of patience and dedication and most importantly C) lots of free time. Most people who stepped up so far, only had 1 or 2 of these qualities, never all 3.

That's really sad...

It's a shame I don't have the right skills.

But You never considered not "Calling for help", but Directly ASKING one of the big modder teams for help With particular tasks?

I mean, posting the ask for help on your own forum isn't going to work that easilly.

Mostly your fans aren't modders.

Tried to contact some Professional people?

That has been done too. Other modding teams are busy with their own projects. And "professional people" want money for their work.

But is there like totally no way?

Goddamn, If I wouldn't be a poor russian I am (It's true) I would donate for sure!

You didn't thik about kickstarter?

Like asking for a small sum, just to revive the mod, and then keep on as a free project?

I would do that, although that may be sounds like stupid...

Bolshoi spasibo for your concern ;)

Keep hope, maybe someone interested enough does show up and helps out.

Yeah, Your Russian Sucks, Friend, but thanks for Trying... :D

I keep hope, after all - It's been awhile since 3.6, wasn't it?

Good luck with your mod, if you actualy have donate system, I may be able to save up some money for you and the team.

I love the mod too much to just let it go on on behalf of capricious godess of fortune!
