American Civil War Mod

30/12/2015: 3.6.2 Full Installer released

(Windows only, no Mac!)


ACW 3.6.2 Full Installer


100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY WITH THE MOD!


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
3. Don't use the Mexican general, he's bugged.

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.

If you don’t have the files for the warpath campaign it will not work. If you do and it’s still not working. Uninstall and reinstall

*ok step 1, play the good guys instead*

Do you have the Warpath campaign? If not, have you tried selecting the other map? *I think it's called RTI map or something*

Just out of curiosity but what is the bg_prewar.pack in the ZoR submods folder?

I believe that’s for the Mexican war units you can get if you follow the directions of how to get the extra maps

Was it you who said there was the guy from the war of 1812 Mod interested in attempting to fix this. If so do you have any news on that?

Yes he said he would be happy to but he has prior commitments to other mods before he can get to work on this

I really happy hope he is committed to it. I would love to play through the campaign even once without a crash. Did he tell you this directly?

Let me make This verry clear there already is an acw campaign already underway
And yes its a grand campaign. Just to make things clear.
It takes Some time to finish it and required the scripting of acw to be modified.
Starting positions are already done. Last but not least i dont want people to be upset with the acw team as this is not their fault for sure if You look back this campaign stuff was Made by the older team not this team who put hard work on it. Again in dont wanna be rude but just stop this mess
If you want to play an acw campaign just either wait or play the st2 campaign submod

I am confused. Are you implying you (or someone else) is working on this again? since you said "there already is an acw campaign already underway". Forgive me if I got this wrong. Also me or Gmanunlimited are not mad at the devs at all. We just want to play their product in its full glory and would love it if someone let us do that.

Yes i have been working on this campaign for some time but its early code out
And will require some things
Like date vanilla units changed to acw and some stuff
The issue for now making sure everyone installs it right especially testers

Yes we have been talking about it on steam. If your looking for a mod to play, try his war of 1812 mod. And if you have any issues with it you can be assured your comment will not be ignored nor will you get a rude response

I would like to try it out but not have to uninstall ACW. Is it possible to play without uninstalling ACW?

No. But why does it matter when you can’t even finish the campaign for ACW?

Just because I like it. I like it alot. Regardless of where the campaign is it is still one of my favorite things to play. I am attached to it for personal reasons. No reason other than that.

I just wanna point out, the Civil War mod for Napoleon Total War doesn't have a campaign at all, and it's still a great mod, just for the battles themselves...

Just a innocent question. Is anyone who worked on this one affiliated with the Napoleon Civil War Mod? I noticed some similarities.

Some of the initial authors of this one switched over to Napoleon after encountering some limitations in Empire's engine.

But that’s also very unstable every mod I’ve played on Napoleon crashes because it’s too laggy
