1. Start the installer
2. On the page where to set the install path you should take care (The default install path is set for standard win7 64bit with default steam path).
The path you chose must contain the file empire.exe!

BEIC is a major mod for Empire Total War, which means it will change many different parts of the game.
For game effects please read the "BEIC vs Vanilla" Thread for a general overview of changes.
Installed this mod will not conflict with other mods as it is full modfoldered. This means the mod files are only in your data folder when you launch the game. It is recommend to wait a few seconds after closing ETW before you close the launcher too. Otherwise it could be that the files not be copied back to the mod folder.
If you plan to run other mods while playing BEIC you have to test if it will be compatible. As we changed many aspects and files of vanilla it can be that your additional mod will not work or conflict with BEIC.
The Launcher do all what you need to start BEIC without conflicts. This means he also clear up your user.empire_:script. So you don´t have to do it for your own if you plan to install it while you also have other mods. It is recommend to wait a few seconds after closing ETW before you close the launcher or it can be that the files not be copied back to the mod folder.
3. Known bugs
** For Version 1.0 the princely states have not a cleared fog of war at campaign start. You need to open your army list (in every princely city is an army) and put the army out of the town. With this procedure you will uncover the hidden terrain and get access to your small towns.
(This bug was late reported, we can fix this easily but this means a new campaign file and a complete new testing phase for stability. This is why we don´t corrected it, otherwise we had to delay the release date. In the next version it will be fixed).
** We found an animation bug in the last minute before upload this version. This means for now the bagpiper of the Scots unit have not the correct animation. We will fix this in the next version/patch.
4. Not yet modded parts
The first version have not touched the whole world. Some Flags are changed and faction names too but not all. In the next version we will correct all faction names and flags. They will also get new unit models.
You will understand that this mod will have India as focus, so this was the first priority. For immersion we will improve the rest of the world as much as we can, for those who want conquer the world after gaining control in India.
5. Recommend Settings
The mod is balanced to be played at hard campaign and hard battle settings.
You can for sure change this as you want but we got the best results with that setting.
