Thread: How do you....

    Default How do you....

    Play as a faction that isn't unlocked yet?

    For instance, I'm interested in starting a campaign as the Byzantine Empire, but I have re-installed the game and forgotten how to play as them.

    My descr.strat file in my Medieval 2 Total War folder says that all the factions are unlocked, yet i can only play as: England, HRE, Spain, Venice and France.


    Help?

    Thanks in advance

    HI,

    If you want to unlock other factions then the descr_strat.txt beginning should look something like this ...
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    campaign imperial_campaign
    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


    Now .. if your file looks like that and you still can't play them then someone smarter should give you advice ..

    Just blitzing a small campaign is no option? It shouldn't take too long

    small campaign + easy level + blitz = fast unlock


    You won't even likely need to actually fight battles with that setup, just autoresolve and use your numerous forces to overwhelm their pitiful small armies

    well .. if you want really fast to unlock those other factions then you can just do this .. only that I add "lots of cheats" to that equation
