How can I change the government type?

You have to cause a rebellion in your capital region. High taxes, food shortages ,industrialization and a lack of soldiers in the capital. Any armies in the region at the time of the revolution will be split in half and the revolusionaries gets half of the army then you have to capture the capital in a siege battle, if there are no armies in the area then a handful of malitia will apear.
I agree the answer of A1, which type of the citizens formed a rebellion force, and it will become their government type. For example, Higher grade one will form monarch.

Hope this helpful.
I have to say that republic is by far the best goverment type! What really surprised me is that if your capital is Athens, there will be Greek rebels. If they capture Athens afterwards, a new nation will arise...this is Greece! I finally found a way to play with my country!

There are 12 playable factions in the game.
Does anybody know if there can be more factions unlocked for play?

Question from: draggar(8)
9 Answers +
I've heard there will be over 50 factions but only a small amount will be playable.
Ya start with 12, but i've heard there will be 36 playable/unlockable factions, rest would be emerging factions, eg: hessian, quebec, greece, norway, ...
Yes, only some of the others factions are playable, I think you have to complete the game and also do certain things during the game to unlock certain factions
I think only the major nations are playable
You may download mods for unlocking more fractions. For example, 'Unconquered Mod'.

Hope this helpful.
Well yeah there are other playable countries.You can complete the Road to independence and than you have it all. -Answer by:Fra alFrahir
I think that unless you use a mod then you are stuck with the twelve big factions. Its quite annoying that you cannot play as the Mughal empire though as they are a big faction but are unplayable. Grrrrrr!
I heard that there was one patch that gives you the chance to play as Natives. Sound cool?
Well, if there is a mod for it I recommend that, there is also an expansion pack to play as 5 native american nations, like pueblo nations! its 7 EUROS.

I`ve just counquer France and the people started a riot.How can I stop it?

Hold you're army in the city!
or kill the riot!
and send a priest or somthing like tath!
Make the taxes more low ,, put a lot of armies in places may have riots in it ,,, some buildings when you upgrade it it make the happiness rate -5 or -3 ...
When taking the capital, leave the forces in the capital. Then destroy any schools, colleges, universities, etc. there. Destroy the churches if they don't match your religion and institute your church. Lower the tax or have no tax for the region. Take a couple turns. If they rebel, destroy them immediately. If they have an army in that nation after you take it over, make sure they leave or destroy them with an army that is NOT holding the capital. If they have no arm there, it should take about five turns before the nation is all safe.

I read the system requirements on another website saying I need the graphic card:

DirectX 9.0c card with 256mb RAM

But is this one good too?
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT 512MB

I am buying a new pc with that Graphic Card and I need to know if it's possible to play the game with that Graphic Card. Thankyou!

The game should play well with that card.
I have a Nvidia Geforce 9500 GT and it runs it to the max. I have no lags. I would recomend 9600 GT but it requires a minimum of 400W, and the 9500 GT only requires 350W. But its up to what power supply you have.
Yes it does work great on it! I just bought a laptop with that video card in it.(asus) but the laptop needs to be plugged in while playing to get best out of the card!
I would say you should get an ATI, cheaper than nvidia atm. try looking at the 4770. it runs Crysis very well

I loved rome total war, but this one blows. difficulty setting doesnt even seem to matter. easy or very hard are the same. anyone having this problem?

If this is really a big problem for u, download some mods that improve the AI. The mods will make the AI a lot harder.
That's alright, just turn your campaign difficulty to easy, and battle one turn harder, but you just let your general to complete the battles instead of you, still nothing change.

Hope this helpful.
If easy and hard are the same for you then you are having some problems, there's a big difference. So you are having a problem with your game, but you probably already knew that. And your right, Rome was awesome

How I can construct a Galeon in my seaport?

Normally you need to keep upgrading your seaport until you reach a level when you can construct a galleon. But if I am honest, I don't think the galleon is an actual ship on Empire. lol. -Answer by:Yin717
You can only access the galleon if you are playing as Spain. If you are playing as the Dutch, you can get the fluyt. All other nations use the standard trade ships.
I would say the fluyt is really really good at the beginning of the game, get 3 fluyts and your navy is ready to set sail without getting inmediatly pounded from everywhere ^.^

Can someone write a guide on how to atatck I se there is infantry defensive tactics but no´infantry offensive tactics do we really want 2 armies approach eachother online then we all stay just out of range waiting to get the first shot?

how do we beat players that use there superior numbers of snipers and just keeps falling back when we have same number off cavalry I am nott alking about only snipers but a player that ahve 3 or 4 extra unts off snipers and then line or guards.

these questions is for no artillery games.

big thanks for those that answer

A1:
Well... I normally flank them and as their distracted preventing their flanks being rolled I advance give a volley or two than charge normally they break or scatter and the battle is won other times they may fight like I do with corps so crushing one will just mean a small victory moments before I use the two other corps to pin them and crush them with repeated volleys and then a charge like Wellington used to do all his battles ended in a charge including Waterloo though Napoleon like using the heavy cavalry anyway hope that was helpful (:

Oh and creating corps that contain one sniper two line and one cav is very useful

How can you launch the game when off line ?

A1:
Ok heres a headach solution. If you have Empire total war you have to have internet at least to get it started. First install your game, yes internet access is required. F*ckin steam. Next you have to wait for the steam server to update. afterward your game will work fine and is playable in offline mode. But here's the kicker if you turn off or restart you PC then you lose the updates and the ability to play in offline mode. so you have to hook back up to the internet update steam AGAIN then you can play.

A1:
No if you defeat their capital, they will make a new capital out of one of their other cities.
A2:
Like A1 said, they make another capital out of another city. Most of the time it is the strongest one they have. This happened in practically every Total War game. The way to completely destroy a faction is to capture every single one of their cities.

Nope. If you have it on steam, there should be a button somewhere that says something along the lines of 'View CD key'. If you didn't download it via steam, then I'm afraid you will have to buy it again. Or just pirate it.

I've only just started the game, so I'm still learning. But I just got past the part where it said something about the research buildings (colleges, etc.). However, right as that came up, I had clicked on another part of the map, and that went away. When I try to click on anything to build research buildings, nothing pops up. Is it still too early in the game to build these, or am I missing something?

A1:
Are you sure that you clicked on a town with a school in? You can only build research buildings in ones like those. When a new town is founded you can choose what speciality it has if you want to research loads of stuff really quickly, choose to build a school. If you did everything right and it's still not working, your game is bugged.

How to have much mony in game?
what is the best region to start with?

I find that the best way to get lots of money fairly easily is to start off as a faction like the Maratha Confederacy, take over the whole of India and maybe a few of the pirate owned places in america, once this is done dont expand for a while, just sit back and develope your industries and technologies. While you are doing this it is generally best to ignore the rest of the world, and only interact with other factions to gain trade rights and maybe aliances. It also helps to have large trade fleets in the trade theaters. Once your country is well developed in all areas and you have loads of money and your country is stable and happy, KILL Everyone who is not you!
I used this method and gained over one million pounds and ALL regions in all theaters.
Yip best region is Prussia - go hard on military tech in your schools - take immediate bordering states esp austria. Make alliance with turkey & you are set  
First of all, don't spend your money on the army. It's not needed (yet) and with a small starting army, you can defend yourself in the first few turns.

Build your country, invest in farms, towns, mines, etc. Don't forget to develop your country with science. There are plenty of inventions which will result a higher yield of money each turn (allowing better buildings, or giving the old buildings better results).

As last, trade! trade! trade! Search a nice big country (hello persia or Indian countries for example), who's far away and develop friendly relations with it. Trade with it and during the mid-game (around 50 turns) you can easily gain 2000 coins by trading with it (that's the upkeep of 6 line units, if I remember it right).

And last, but surely not least.. build a trade fleet and send it to africa, south america and indonesia. Send a couple of guard ships with it and chase your enemy's, pirates and such from the spots which you can make money on. Very, very, very lucrative, but too much of a hassle to develop early on imo.
I started out with Persia(2 regions) and conquered the smaller nations around me, best advise is to do the same go after small first, and make sure they do not have allies
Well, first for lots of money,it's good to make trade with either bordering nations or coastal nations. Build roads and/or ports. For a good starting territory, I would take Paris or Istanbul. Big money makers early.
I started with england. Make sure your finances get better through the game dont use the uni's to do military research you can trade for that with the much smaller nations. Remember the 13 colonies join you to. so do that bit. With the trade areas take up as many as possible of the spaces even if you only have a non trade ship on it stops the others from using it thus putting the price up. I took out pirates almost straight away followed by france. ally with lots of nations and offer tech and money if need be. Then go to war with france (spain will follow but use money tech etc to stop them). Once you take france and north america your set. sweeden are easy too.
Marathas are the best starting faction, but Austria and the Ottomans are easy too.
Trade, don't get in war with big nations if possible, alliance, aim for the weak and don't get overdo it. and thats it
I think that Ottomans is a very difficult region to start with, because is one of the nations with the most problems. I believe that this thing is a result of the large extension of Ottomans.
A10:
0-5
Started with the united provinces a trading nation, just put most of your cities to research and fight of france in the south. england is your ally, austria is your ally in the SE and you have one colony in every theater. the only hard theatre is india because you have to get of an island and hold a coastal city while three other cities attack you. make sure to have a good force in amsterdam though hannover will harass you for a while.

How do you get a constitutional monarchy goverment?

A1:
You gain the constitutional monarchy Government by causing rebellion in your nation.

How to decide which rebellion makes it? Well it depends on your current government.

Let's use France as an example: France starts out as an absolute monarchy. Thus, if you cause rebellion with the Higher class, the result will be another absolute monarchy. If you cause a revolt with the lower class, then you will receive a republic. Well what about the constitutional monarchy?! That can only be gained by republics, which must then have a rebellion of the higher classes to form a government with both the people and a monarch... Makes sense right? If you're confused I'll make a table at the bottom. So, if you start with a nation like France, an Absolute Monarchy, you must first make it rebel into a republic and THEN into a constitutional monarchy..

Should you start with a republic, like the UP, or the USA, just have a revolt with the higher class. Tiring, but well worth it in my opinion...

ALSO! This is important, the revolt MUST take place in your capital, shown by the little building icon next to the city. otherwise it will just be revolt, not revolution! For further reference on revolution, there is another topic here somewhere... Don't want to stray too far off topic here...

TABLE!

((AB is absolute monarchy, CM is constitutional monarchy, and RE is republic))
_____________________________________________

Absolute Monarchy:

AB --> Higher class revolt --> AB

AB --> Lower Class Revolt --> RE

---------------------------------------

RE --> Higher class revolt --> CM

RE --> Lower class revolt --> RE

-----------------------------------------------

CM --> Higher class revolt --> AM

CM --> Lower class revolt --> RE

No cheat code, at least not discovered yet. The only cheat known is use Art Money or Cheat engine to produce infinite money.

Hope this helpful.
It depends on wich total war you speak of. I know Medival 2 Is the ~ button, but not much on the others
You have to press the ~ key then type your codes
As the others said, on Medieval II Total War you press `. Well, it's ` on an English keyboard. Then you type something like add_money 100000. Keep typing that until you get into the millions, then you can destroy everybody. This doesn't work on Empire Total War. There isn't even a button to enable cheats.

I am looking for a save game for chapter 3 in the Road to Independence?

I recommend you to play it by yourself.
Belive me man ive been trying to finish it for about 4 months now but all I can give you is advise... take new york within the first thew turns then work to the right then finnally tale philedelfia and work from their thats as far as I have gotten
It is not that hard make a good army and take the easy settlements to the north then sweep down and take the southern states last should be new york and Philly unless the are undefended but don't take new york unless you have a great army the seem to like new york then you can finish of the game.  make sure you keep in good relations with the other countries France Spain and dutch Spain might wipe you out early if you not careful.
I finished it
you cant save it in the first part
Here's some advice: Start off slow, and build up your economy first. I then take Maine and the rest, and hold my position there. Watch for the Iroquois! They usually will back stab you, especially if allied to Britain. Try and ally France early so their navy will keep England's in check, and monitor your trade. After that, take New France and Quebec, and sweep the rest of America in the dust! Long live the republic!
