Thread: Unlocking factions?

    Default Unlocking factions?

    Hey Guys,

    This has probably been discussed before but I fail to find any info on this...

    I've played a short campaign with the English, conquering 15+ provs and killing off the Scots and Frogs. I got the victory screen and so I went back to the main menu to see whether I could play any of the locked faction - I can't!! They're still not unlocked.

    So, my first question is why is that?
    and secondly, how can I unlock them by editing?

    Thanks
    Ganja

    Go to the medieval2.preference in the main total war directory and replace pref_factions_played = 0 to a 1

    In my file it says pref_factions_played = 2097183 instead of 0

    Should I still just change the value to 1?

    Do as follows rather:

    Open the medieval2.preference.cfg file and add this code line as text:

    [misc]
    unlock_campaign = true


    Save the text file. Start a new campaign and Voila!

    err, AFAIK it is done otherwise. Don't do that untill u are certain what to do. Dont know the specific file, but you have to edit a file in which you remove faction names from one area to another.

    Both ways to unlock the factions are working. They are in the "Tips and FAQ for M2TW" thread by the way.
