Description

Every version of this mod should be installed on a fresh, unmodified version of 'Age of Empires 3 The Asian Dynasties' (must also include 'The War Chiefs' and all games must be updated to the latest versions, v1.03 for TAD)! Mostly recommended only if you have any kind of errors or other problems. If you have problems with missing models, sounds or buildings icons then try to re-install 'The War Chiefs'. It has some installation glitches. And if that doesn't work then find out how to fix it at the end of this description. High video settings are recommended for all visual changes to work properly. Please do not 'update' the mod with any rip-offs or other modifications from mods 'designed' to work with this one. To make sure you always have the latest version check out the mod's blog periodically.

I know I should do a clean install each time but will it cause any issues if I use this version over the last one? Excellent mod by the way!

Not really. That recommandation is mostly for when you have any problems or bugs with the game.

There is one thing though, you will still have the Rifleman bug.
Go here and see how you can easily fix it:

I'm trying to install it for steam, but it reads with an error message: game not found. I have all three versions of the games (TWC and TAD).
Please help me out, I'm really looking forward to playing this mod.

What gives an error...?
The installer lets you install the mod anywhere so it can't be from it.

Anyway, to install it for Steam use this path in the installer:
/Steam/steamapps/common/Age of Empires 3/bin/

Yup, the installation went wrong. There.
Now follow these incredibly simple steps if you wanna enjoy the mod:
1. Install Age of Empires 3
2. Install The WarChiefs (watch out what pirated version of this one you install, some are broken)
3. Install The Asian Dynasties (try not to run any of them until you complete all steps)
4. Update Age of Empires 3 (latest version: 1.14)
5. Update The WarChiefs (latest version: 1.06)
6. Update The Asian Dynasties (latest version: 1.03)
7. Install mod and run the patcher to update

Remember not to use any cracks. This game doesn't need to be cracked after updating it, just a cdkey.
Have fun.

Look above. Follow those exact same steps. You are getting that error because you didn't update the game to its latest original version.

Also, make sure your antivirus isn't blocking the patcher and run the patcher as administrator!

You can also start the game without the patcher, of course, and the mod will work but you will not have the latest version.

First of all, you shouldn't even download this version... The "manual install" version is for people who know how to install mods extremely well and hate installers, other modders and Mac users. You are neither of these.

Download the installer version and follow the steps!

Go to home city selection, not creation, and you will find the Americans. Why don't people check this BEFORE asking why they can't find them...?
