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.

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.

I cant find and of the siege battles, and when I go to custom battle i see lots of vanilla battles and only a few ACW battles? Any advice?

You didn't read the instructions. It says there how you install custom ACW maps.

So I played the mod, and then, when I closed it, selected "Restore Vanilla." I then went to play the regular Empire, and it didn't work. I found out the following:

Run ACW and close it choosing "Vanilla Ready". Then go into your Empire Total War directory and click data and you should see 1 file that starts with "bg_" What you want to do is delete it and then try launching Empire Total War and it should work. (You will have to do this every time after you play ACW and then want to play Vanilla).

Thank you, and this is an awesome mod! I hope people find this helpful. All my advice came from the following link:

Hey...

We are 2 Total War gamers from Denmark, who have been gaming the franchise from the beginning...

But we ain't young anymore and so our knowledge become more and more dust filled!

Hench the question: Can we play multiplayer Campaign with this MOD installed??

Thanks on advance.

There was some talk of multiplayer campaign being possible on the forum, but I've never tried it. You can definitely play single battles in multiplayer.
