After another long period of waiting and another almost complete roster change of the ACW Team, we bring you

3.6 Open Beta

of American Civil War: Brothers vs. Brothers

(Windows only, no Mac!)

3.6 Open Beta


Detailed install info here:

Current build of 3.6 Open Beta supports Warpath map based ACW campaign only.
However, users who don't own Warpath can still play the custom battles and a limited RTI campaign with all the new units!

Also, remember this is a BETA of 3.6, so several features aren't working and the installation is not smooth. Unfortunately there is also a likely campaign crash present, but you can use older campaign files for a more stable build.

For all additional info, go to the forum:


Reduce the chance of battle crashes by turning down your graphics settings and disabling Steam overlay.

If you're going to abandon this, please at least leave us with a version that doesn't crash on turn 50.

Versions 3.4 and 3.5 don't crash. Feel free to enjoy those.
3.6 has a lot more content, but we have no idea what causes the crash. Why it's a public beta, as we hoped the players would help locate the bug. After some 9000 downloads we received no useful hints. :)))

Not half of the team. Twice the entire team. Because eventually everyone hits some difficult bugs or code issues and loses the will to keep wasting their life on an essentially very futile and unrewarding task, which is what making free mods for people (kids mostly) basically is. Why futile and unrewarding? So far this mod took thousands of hours of volunteer work already, yet for every pat on the back, we get three whines and complaints or douchebags commenting "don't play this mod, it crashes" as most people don't seem to be able to tell the difference between free mods made by a couple enthusiasts from paid games made by professional teams of dozens of people. So well, noone's motivated much anymore to invest endless hours into this. Unless some seriously dedicated modders join and take over the development of this mod, I doubt it will get any more serious updates. Currently the team consists of two people who both have plenty worry with real life and jobs and don't really have the time or the will to dedicate a few hours every day to working on this and even if we would, there are some coding obstacles we're just not skilled enough to overcome on our own. I'll carry the torch a while longer, then, if it dies, it dies...
