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.

I can't open the installer application. nothing pops up, it just doesn't open. nothing happens. tf. it does say, under ratio, 1%, don't know if that has anything to do with it though.

Ok now it goes to the start up loading screen, my mouse turns into the circular rotation loading thing, goes to the regular mouse, then crashes soon after with no error report.

I can play custom battles but the campaign crashes upon starting it... There is a box that pops up before starting the games saying there are other folders Empire then ACW and vanilla and Im guessing I need to get rid of those? How can I do that? Sorry I am not too techy even though I love this mod.

Close ACW launcher with "Vanilla ready", then delete all "bg_" files in ETW Data folder.

Greetings,
Does one need to download the "Warpath" expansion in order to run this mod?
Thanks!

No, but it's recommended.
Try without first and if all works fine, only then get Warpath.

OK- I will try it without first. If it does not run, or crashes a lot then I will download "Warpath". Can you help explain exactly WHY the "Warpath" expansion is recommended?
Thanks!

No, just the opposite. If it doesn't work, you'll be wasting your money on Warpath too, since it won't work either. It's needed only for campaign play, since vanilla's North America map is less detailed than Warpath's.
