    How do you do that? I searched and found nothing.

    Hi and welcome thekreator,
    You can unlock all factions in M2:TW by entering your "C:\Program Files\Sega\M2TW\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign" folder. You can do this by typing it in the navigation bar in Windows Explorer.

    The useful file that you require is the descr_strat.txt file. Open it up and you should see that a part of it, close to the top, looks like this:

    playable
    england
    france
    hre
    spain
    venice
    end
    unlockable
    sicily
    milan
    scotland
    byzantium
    russia
    moors
    turks
    egypt
    denmark
    portugal
    poland
    hungary
    end
    nonplayable
    papal_states
    aztecs
    mongols
    timurids
    slave
    end

    Change it so it looks like this (make sure that there is a tab space before every faction's name or the campaign will fail to start):

    playable
    england
    france
    hre
    spain
    venice
    sicily
    milan
    scotland
    byzantium
    russia
    moors
    turks
    egypt
    denmark
    portugal
    poland
    hungary
    end
    unlockable
    end
    nonplayable
    papal_states
    aztecs
    mongols
    timurids
    slave
    end

    After you have done that, all fully playable factions are available to enjoy right from the start.

    Unfortunately, the Aztecs, the Mongols and the Timurids cannot be played without further modding. The Papal States can be played, but it probably will be a rather buggy campaign since the faction is heavily scripted.

    If you wish more information on playing as these non-playable factions, please don't hesitate to post here. I'm sure one of the modding experts whom reside in that location will be able to aid you in operating them. Good luck, cheers!

    Welcome thekreator

    Just follow Omanes' instructions and you should be fine.

    One minor addition though: the descr_strat.txt file is a "read-only" file. Before modifying it, right click on the icon of the file, choose the option "properties"; uncheck the box "Read-only" on the bottom. Now you can modify the file and save the changes.

    Good luck and enjoy the unlocked factions

    thanks.

    How do you mod units?

    Hi again thekreator,
    To mod units, you simply have to enter your "C:\Program Files\Sega\M2TW\data\" folder. You can do this by typing it in the navigation bar in Windows Explorer. Next, simply open the file named "export_descr_units.txt". Once you have done this you can change add new units and change unit statistics at free will. Make sure you back it up though, just incase you make any mistakes that could corrupt your game.

    I believe you need to extract it using the unpacker first.

    That can take a fair amount of time (and HDD space); so I suggest you read the mod forums while you wait

    Whenever I try typing in

    C:\Program Files\Sega\M2TW\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_ campaign

    into the windows search I always get a message saying that the folder doesnt exist, am I typing in the wrong thing or am I just searching in the wrong place?

    Like sapi said, I think you need the unpacker for that.
    You can, however, search it manually. Go in your M2 folder, go in data, then world, then maps, campaign and imperial_campaign. If you can't find it, then you probably need the unpacker.
