How do I add traits to other factions' characters? I've tried everything, but the console says it can't find the character. Please give an example!
give_trait "Domenico Selvo" BadCommander 5
If it's a three-part name you may need the underscore (this next name is totally made up):
give_trait "Louis de_Dijon" BadCommander 5
Try different combinations if you get the "character not found" message, you may stumble across the right name. These cheats also apply to your own faction as far as two and three-part names. (i.e. If you started as Venice, you would need the quotes to give Domenico a trait)
Ex: you got a character with name Prince Guy
give_trait "Guy" BadCommander 5
that's how it will look:)
be very accurate with the capitals in their name, if you don't get the capitals right it won't work)
Im basically saying that if you destroy that faction, it shall be unlocked.
EXAMPLE: England destroys Scotland. I play as Scotland.
If you cant figure it out, see a doctor.

Can anyone tell how to create a unit what number I require
i seem to have trouble writing down EXACTLY what write?
create_units London "Arqubuisers" 4 9 3 3
If you the others like Spain with Musketeers type in
create_units (Spains capitol I dont really know) "Musketeers" 4 9 3 3
They are actual names of them and will work perfectly to create
create_unit London "Arquebusiers" 4 9 3 3
create_unit London "Musketeers" 4 9 3 3
create_unit Jerusalem "Handgunners" 4 9 3 3
Hey can someone help me I cant cheat for multiple worded units, and I dont know why?
Hi, I'm kind of new to this, and I was wondering how do I open up my Medieval 2 files, and edit it for a longer campaign.?
HOW do you create units with a name made up of two words? ex. Armoured Swordsmen: because I typed this in: create_unit London "Armoured Swordsmen" 2 9 3 3 and it said that it doesnt recognise the unit... PLEASE HELP!
Does anyone know what the trait that leads to the "Brutally Scarred" name?
and if he's wounded get him out of the melee and keep him safe do this +- 5 battles in a row and he wil be brutally scarred
give_trait this GoodCommander 5
The general that would get this trait would need to be selected by the cursor, outside of a city and on dry land. Use it on Priests, Assassins, Generals, etc. especially when they have a name that is longer than 1 word.
Im always trying to enter the cheat creat_unit "Nottingham" "Armored Swordsmen" 3933 what am I doing wrong? aND ARE there any other cheats like that?
create_unit Nottingham armored_swordsmen 3 9 3 3
Typically the unit names are lowercase, all spaces must be filled by and underscore, the city name must be capitalized, and I'm not sure, but I think the numbers have to be separated, otherwise the computer would think it was 3,933 and not 3/9/3/3. There are TONS of other cheats, and this site has a large bulk of them, look around. I use the character trait and "process_cq" codes, listed above, very often.
ARMOURED not ARMORED. The game uses English English, not American English.
Hi quick ? How do you bribe a settelment that has no gov. or gen. they all say "i have too much pride in being one of my people" do you have to use a cheat or something? plz respond
We've just got the game and can't seem to save the games. Comes up with can't save to disc message. How do we get it to save current campaign?
I am playing with no time limit battles and I have a problem with stupid computer opponents attacking my castles with massive odds in his favor, but no missle troops. I will not come out of the walls and the computer's troops will not leave. Is there a solution without me making a suicide charge?
A) abandon the seige and attack the new army
B) retreat away from the castle, allowing you to pursue (though be careful of ambushes)
C) attempt to take the castle. If you know your not going to be able to win the fight, then try and take out as many troops as possible. If you have an army heading to said castle to aid the defenders, they should be able to easily retake the castle.
It all depends on playing style. Sometimes, If I know I can't hold a castle, say Angers from a mighty English army, I try and deal them a few defeats elsewhere (for instance, I went around their backs and was able to take York, Nottingham and London with some small armies and a few catapults), then negotiate a peace deal via a diplomat/princess.
Hi there I really need help, I cant get my move_character to work (i don't know what to write) and don't get the character_reset to work... please help me ! : D?
This will give you the coordinates of the location, ie 166,30
then to move your character there, type
move_character "Edward Canmore" 166,30
obviously Edward Canmore is just an example.

I think theres a unit of "Aztec Spearmen" which are pretty effective though, but they will take pretty awesome losses
you get 2 play all americans and actual crusade factions like knights of saint john or templar na dget 2 control reinforcements, type it in in Youtbue it's good vid.
At the start of the file you'll see a list, unlocked,locked and unplable. Copy and paste Aztecs into playable.
Be warned, they can not get too Europe and can't buid anything, but there is a mod which changes this. -Answer by:Warluster
At the start of the file you'll see a list, unlocked,locked and unplable. Copy and paste Aztecs into playable.
but then you have to create one of those boats that travel along the ocean type that in under the aztec list of armies. ( you will have to make then respawn in the sea so use a y and x axis that is in the sea (you should find one). after you have done this take your armies and move them into Ireland or Dublin. when I did it though there are lots of storms so make sure you have enough ships

All my family members are dieing how do I get new ones which cheat please explain?
However, if you have one member of you're family who is married, if you give him the fertile trait, and then the wifeisfertile cheat, you should get a new member within a turn or two. Since you've asked for an explanation..
give_trait "Name" "Trait (like Fertile" "amount"
Now, if you're character has an extension to the name like 'The Conqueror' or something, and you can't find out what his last name was beforehand, you can just select him and put 'this' where the name should go. I'll give an example.
give_trait this fertile 3
Now, as you can see from most of the traits, they can go up any number, but limited. So if it doesnt add it, knock it down a number.
Well, I hope this helps.

My console doesnt work... no matter how I do it I cant get the console up..... the "~" dont work... what to do?!
Basically push buttons on your keyboard (trying the ` and # ones first) until you see a small blacking see through screen open up that lets you type in it - then type in your cheat codes and push the same button that opened the screen to close it again. -Answer by:x1xx1x
i.e. the key to the left of the !/1
How do you change the year in the campaign map?

How come the recruit unit cheat won't let me recruit some units like the retinue longbowmen?
How do I type a character name with unusual characters, i.e. Vincent d'Albret?
Also, where can I find a list of traits and ancillaries? (Not the actual names, but the codes, i.e. the trait "Blessed" is called "NaturalPriestSkill 1")
This works with the create unit,remove and add ancillary,remove and add trait,and the character reset cheat as well as others.
NOTE:You should type in,literaly, "this",becsuse it refers to your highlited character.
To get the list of traits and ancillaries go to http://oobucksworld.tripod.com/id13.html and scroll down the page until you see "Medieval II:right here".It should be underlined and colored blue.
The website has a couple of goofy pictures.So you're there if you see them.
To get the names of the traits you need to get patch 1.1 and unpack your files.then go to My computer and look in your C drive(C:).Then go to program files then SEGA file then medieval 2.Once you're in you should see a long list of files(After you unpack it).Go to the file character traits or go to the ancillary file and you'll have more info than you need.Your game will most likely crash after you unpack your files but that can easily be fixed.Check out the forums on the interenet and look for people with the same problem.I would tell you but I'm too lazy.
These give you elephants - just open the normal window for putting cheats in, with a city already selected, and type the word above on it's own.
