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

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.

Hi I just intalled yesterday the mod and it just worked really fine.But to my surprise today , I try to play a custom battle and while it is loading it crashes with that famous box : "Empire blabla stopped working". I don't know where the problem comes from unfortunately. I'd be grateful for some help. Cheers.

This is a common issue. Every time you are finished with the mod, when you exit the launcher, exit it as Vanilla Ready. Then go to your steam data folder and delete all the files that start with bg_. Then, restart your computer and it SHOULD work well. Hope this helps.

The passive-aggressiveness of the author is impeccable.

Thank you. Not really the author, though, just the last guy of the last team that can still be bothered to answer anything at all.

If you have more patience answering same questions over and over, when in most cases it's just a problem of not following install instructions, the job's available, you're welcome to it. If anyone feels they can fix the mod's many other problems (I can't because I was just a texturer, not a programmer), they're welcome to try as well.

Getting several "My game keeps crashing, plz help" posts each day, when I've no idea why it's crashing, since my installation isn't crashing, and I'm using the same version that can be downloaded here, can get frustrating, so if you think you can handle it with a smile, please do and you'll have mine and their gratitude.

Your passive-aggressiveness continues to inspire even in the response.

What a shame you refuse the job offer. I was genuinely hoping you'd accept, help out and give me some time to work on my people skills. Unlike you, I'd be nothing but supportive of someone willing to do it.

I wasn't implying I was the one for the job, only that the one that has the job of communicating with the public (and no offense) should probably have the ability to be professional with the public. I'm not necessarily speaking for myself, but some consider rude answers to sincere questions distasteful.

What if they got sincere answers to rude questions, or at least redundant questions, since all official info is provided by scrolling up a few inches, yet noone is bothered to take those instructions (particularly those big bold letters not to ask tech support questions here) to heart?
All the questions that keep being asked have been answered dozens of time in the forums. I am not paid for this job, nor feel any particular joy in doing it anymore at all and I have already irretrievably invested a few years of my free time into this mod. Everyone else who did, quit long before me, cause they too were fed up.
I think most of my answers were quite civil, but you're forgetting that tech support is usually a decently paid job, because, as actual tech support guys told me "you have to be nice to stupid people", while I was still answering here for the past couple of years, nearly every day, out of a sense of duty to the community.
Well, I do thank you for helping me realise the folly of my ways and make the decision to completely ignore questions from now on and hope they will answer themselves. This sincere enough for you?

I know how intensely annoying it can be. Keep up the good work. ^^
