  • Free construction

    Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "game_data.txt" file in the game folder. Change all the numbers to "0".

  • Keep bears away

    When bears kill civilians, your popularity decreases. To avoid this, simply build a wood fence around a bear when it appears.

  • Keep catapult or trebuchet firing

    When your catapult or trebuchet is out of ammunition and you have no stone in your stockpile it is not necessary to build another one. You can still fire it if you click on the "Launch Cow" button and click a wall or something else. Immediately after the order is issued, click "Stop" and the catapult or trebuchet will fire a rock. Repeat this process to keep firing. You have to have cows remaining to do this.

  • Last level

    If you are having trouble completing the last level, the last fight with wolf, because you cannot get past his defense, take about ten archers and kill all of his archers from a distance. It might take a while to do this, but at least you will have more men to fight with. Note: Look out for the long range ballistas. Another way is to kill all archers is from one side, the take the tower and let all of our mace men kill the archers remaining. Note: After killing the second gate house, a fire pit will appear and will kill all men that are there. Another location is around Wolf's keep. Do not send all of your men at once because they will die by fire.

  • Map editor

    Use the map editor, whatever size, and select free build. Use invasion making map mode. When you create units and such, you can command them and make them fight. Thus, you can just make a map without the hassle of mining and such for those who just love killing an enemy. You can also pick your enemy color, or maybe be a com color and have some allies. Build your best castle, and see if you can defeat yourself. Beware though, as archers will kill anything nearby. In case you want to come into a castle and have a ton of units attack you, just be the opponent and set them to aggressive.
