I've been playing the spanish with cheats this time but I have noticed that when I create a unit with the create_unit 5 9 3 3 cheat it only gives a +1 boost to the armor and weapons. Does it only show that its a +1 boost while its actually +3 or is it just the first upgrade? Is it possible to create a unit with gold armor (+3) and gold weapon (+3) with the cheat?
but don't change other things because it take's along time to get back if you don't have back up's.C:\Program Files\SEGA\Medieval II Total War\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign then its descr_strat
create_unit "Nigel" "Holk" 5 9 3 3 (or your preference)

I have used the tilde ~ key to bring up the console and typed in the add-money 40000 cheat and it lets me do it til I get to 200000, then it brings up the keyboard shortcut screen and automatically loads into a new game. How do I stop this annoying occurence from happening?
The problem will be it saying it cannot save file - or file name path etc - you basically just need to change the permissions so you can make changes and save (making file not read only)

Hod do you get rid of coruption in a city cause its really takeing down my income and crap?

In the add money cheat I can get the game shell up but the cheat dosnt work what should I do?
Then hit Enter 40,000 is the max you can add at one time. If you're looking for a massive amount, after you sucessfully enter it once, hit the up arrow and it wll bring it back, hit Enter again. Then go rapid Up Enter Up Enter Up Enter and so on till you get the amount you want.
Tilde key problems....When I press the tilde key...A glitch often occurs that loads a quicksave file or autosave file. Which usually scraps what I was doing. I've learned to delete those files before hand and I am able to save work. But it does create another file I have to delete. Gets frustrating. Can anyone help? I am using all the current mods and updates....
Can someone please tell me exactly how to do the money cheat with every key and characteron the cheat?
Once you have typed this press enter and your money should increase by 40000. The amount of money added can be changed by changing the number at the end however 40000 is the max amount per code. If you want to add loads of money then you just need to press "up" on the directional arrows on the keyboard after you press enter. This will insert the code below the previous one and you just need to press enter again. You close the black text box by pressing the same key you used to open it.
Hope this helps people!
there is a space after money. And put in any amount up to 40'000.

Move your Character/General out of the castle

Ok, Ive tried all the ways listed but everytime I enter the "give_trait" cheat it comes back with character not found. Can someone PLEASE give me the exact way to enter it with (for example) character Ian Inchmertyn and the trait good commander? PLEASE HELP!

give_trait "Joe Blow" GoodCommander 5
give_trait "Ian Inchmertyn" GoodCommander 5

Trying to install medieval total war gold edition but stops at installing and says need to uninstall previous copies of MTW. Have searched all the computer and cant find anythign to delete - help?
Can you only use cheats on characters, towns, or create units who's name is only one word? Because when I try to add a trait, create a unit, or add population to a town with a name longer than one word I get a message saying that the character, city, unit ect.. can not be found.
give_trait this GoodCommander 3
For most settlements, you simply have to use a _ in the space between the words. It won't work on some settlement names however.
give_trait "Malcolm Canmore" GoodTrader 3
Your best bet is to try a few different variations of the name out if you don't get it right first time.
as far as I can tell you're meant to put the name in double quote marks.
eg. give_trait "Maximillian Mandorf" GoodCommander 3
or for creating units: create_unit Vienna "militia spearmen" 1 9 1 1
I'm going to go try this out now.
For example: create_unit William "grande carrack" 5 9 3 3
Build archery range then upgrade it a ton till catapults and other counterparts are open for purchase
#2 when you attack a city, different war machines will be there. this is the only place to have these units, however
example: create_unit "London" "NE Catapult" 3 9 3 3 and it will be created depending on the location of the map
NE- Norther Europe
ME- Middle East
EE- Eastern Europe
SE- Southern Europe
After the calling get a well sized army with a general(Sometimes the pope will ask that your king or prince to join the crusade) and then simply open up the general's information screen and at the bottom corner there will be an icon that allows you to join your army with the crusaders (i think Crusader units are cheaper to maintain or they have no cost at all so make sure you have a big army ). then get on a boat or walk if you want(Try not to trespass on other nations land though, only your allies.) to get to the crusade target.
How do you create a character like a captain for the army and is there a list of names? Also can you disable traitors (when army becomes rebels) in your fraction
Open your descr_strat.txt file, and go to line #40.
It should say 'rebelling_characters_active'. Just insert a semi-colon infront of that line, and save the file.
Even though, your characters still have an attention problem, they won't go emo on you anymore. :)
if your unit has a one word name quotes are not neded this code will give you 5 units with max everything
create_unit Edinburgh "Highland Nobles" 5 9 3 3
create_unit Edinburgh "Heavy Pike Militia" 4 0 1 1
create_unit London "Armoured Swordsmen" 2 9 3 3
Ex: create_unit William "Berdiche Axemen" 5 9 3 3

I've looked every where on the web for a full list of ancillaries (retinue) but cannot found one, only partial ones. I've searched for the export_descr_ancillaries.txt file, but cannot find it either. Can any one provide that list?
For all these cheats you need to access desc_strat. From what I can pick up, this means going from data to worlds in the medieval total war II folder. My trouble is that my medieval total war II folder doesn't contain a file named "data" whilst when I get onto the disk, both the files "data1" and "data2" are empty.
How do I find the file that I need to edit?
Big Problem. I was unable to de-tick "Read Only" on descr_strat until I moved a copy to My Documents and edited it there. However, once I'd done that, when I tried to move it back to the Game Folder, I was told it needed to be written onto the disk, and that the disk had too little space for this to be accomplished.
What do I do?
Does anyone know what is the trait to gain honesty or trustworthiness of a general?
how do you let a princess to be usable as a diplomat? I mean un-merge them from the army. so they have their own icon?
