No rewrite rules are needed for batcache to work.  Are you sure your  
object-caching is working correctly in your WordPress environment?   
Sounds like either a configuration error (memcached servers array  
defined incorrectly or possible firewall rules blocking access).  Are  
you using the PECL memcache client or the pure-php implementation?   
Are you seeing any php errors in your logs?  For testing you can set  
var $seconds to 0 so the pages get cached immediately.

The instructions in the readme are pretty straightforward:
