If anyone knows how the 'hotkey' cheats work, I would be most appreciative to anyone who would be willing to tell me. Anyone who knows can e-mail me at reod_dai_2000@Yahoo.com. Sorry about not having the next campaign done. To make up for it, I'll add a 'Multiplayer Scenario' walkthrough in the next update. (v1.3) 4\9\00 Wow, I had thought I had lapsed after four days without an update… well, this update, I've added the next campaign (Expansion: Enemies of Rome), a new section on hotkeys, a scoring section and I've tested the remaining untested cheats. Just a few more campaigns and the 'hotkey' cheats (I haven't actually looked them up yet…). Oh, yeah, I've also elaborated on the 'Credits' section, adding more 'legal stuff'. (v1.2) 3\10\00 Added some new cheats, but I have yet to confirm them. I didn't add any new campaigns yet because, shocker, I do have a life (or will have one soon). (v1.1) 3\6\00 Added the third campaign. Added more information to the credits section and FAQ section. The schedule for the remaining campaigns is as follows: One new one every day, as long as I feel like it. (v1.0) 3\5\00 First Version of the FAQ. Right now, I only have the first two campaigns, but the others will be ready soon.

Build a storage pit on the cliff side for quick stone gathering. Also be sure to build a dock on the shore north of your city to reach the LAST two towers built. Do not expect much interference once your towers are up. 2: Pyrrus of Epirus Mass your navy in one spot, but do not attack without triremes and juggernaughts. Siegecraft are essential to the attack. I suggest, however, that you simply use the fleet as a diversion. Move you troops along the path north of your city to Pyrrus' army's citadel. The trick is to build towers all along the path, so if you retreat all the units following you will suffer severe damage. The enemy army consists mostly of elephants and cavalry. 3: Syracuse Move you villagers behind the forest and use it as cover. Keep your catapults near the area they originally were and use them to keep your dock's area clear. Move your ships around, toward the northern end of the landmass your units are on, and order them to stand ground. The best way to get to Archimedes (he is in the area you have to invade) is to head to the far west with many Balistae and Archers (some infantry too) and battle up the hills to the area where Archimedes is surrounded by walls, markets and government centers. Use the archers and balistae to attack the balistae in the walled in areas. 4: Metaurus The main threats are to the north and the south. In the beginning, the northern army has very little in the way of troops, so ignore them temporarily. A short way to the south are three more axe men and a catapult. Take them out immediately. Then, take part of your army north and kill all the villagers to the north. To the south, infantry will be more important than siege weapons. 5: Zama The best place for a wonder is just east of your city, between the lake and the forest. Build towers on all the cliffsides around your city. The weakest point in defense is to the far east. 6: Mithridates Your fleet will fall under attack almost immediately, so once the first threat is defeated head slightly northwest. Stay between the two forests and build towers to protect either end. Also disperse your fleet and troops throughout the area. When I say this, I mean still avoid contact, but try to find advanced signs of attack. When your area seems stable, advance with catapults, balistae and a horde of infantry and archers. The area of the wonder is teeming with towers, so be careful. 2: EXPANSION II AVE CAESAR 1: Caesar vs. Pirates When you start out, you're just Caesar. Don't worry, just run like 'heck' (kiddies might be reading this) to the west. Don't think, just run. Soon enough, you will reach a small village, it then becomes yours. Run up next to a tower. Now you're safe. Next, you have to build up a huge fleet, consisting of triremes and catapult triremes. There are nine docks in all. Three in the western corner, three in the southern and three in the center (those might be a little off). Take out the ones in the center first, then the ones in the western half. The ones in the southern section are the best defended, so bring that huge fleet you've been building up just for this occasion. 2: Britain There are three ruins in total. All three are across the river. To begin, move all of your units across the river. Do this as quickly as possible. Once there move all your units except for priests and transports away from your landing site. Try to convert a villager and build some method of getting more military units. On the Western side, expect to run into several priests, catapults, chariots and towers. Expect more of the same in the center. On the western side, however, you only have to worry about axe men and a few cavalry, unless you gave the red army time to cover them. Then, expect still more of the same. 3: Alesia Like the hints say, complete your fortress as soon as possible. Build about 15 villagers and set them to work building towers. The armies on either side of you are in the far corners. The one to the west is harmless for a great length of time. The army in the east has archers and long swordmen. Don't forget about siegecraft and archers. They can fire through the walls. The armies on the inside of the fortress only have two catapults, but multiple horseback archers. The actual enemy hero is in a fortification of small walls with four mounted archers. Balistae anyone? 4: Caesar vs. Pompey Don't waste time looking for a hero named Pompey. There are two ways to win this scenario: (1) build a massive army and fight your way through a city and dozens of towers, taking heavy casualties such that the victory is so hollow it is almost worthless, or (2) build some transport ships and float merrily across the river. Bringing with you of course, enough siege equipment to level Washington D.C., siege equipment that you built in the safety of a fortress surrounded by towers. The choice is yours. One point of interest though, using the cheat E=MC2 TROOPER, you can level the city from the comfort of your own town center. 3.EXPANSION III PAX ROMANA 1. Actium You will fall under attack immediately from Antony's short swordmen. Dispatch of them quickly and save your remaining troops for an assault on his base. You will need some catapults for the towers, but everything else in his possession are short swordmen. As for Egypt, expect chariot archers, barracks units and catapults. Cleopatra's navy consists of five triremes, five juggernaughts, seven archers and the barge itself. Interestingly, the ships only attack when attacked or when a ship draws near, so it is possibly to destroy the fleet ship by ship. 2. The Year of Four Emperors First, attack the brown civilization, just north of the red wonder. They only have villagers, so they should go down quickly. Next, build several towers around the shallows to either side of both wonders. If the red civilization attacks, it will be with academy units and short swordmen. Most importantly though, make sure the second blue wonder is in the middle of the four flags. I have made the mistake of placing it between the wrong two many times. 3. Ctesiphon First of all, head straight south, you will run into some villagers with houses and a granary (the granary is right after you cross the bridge). If you can, try to get some of your caravan's escort troops to rendezvous with your other army. There are three artifacts in total, one on the cliff overlooking your village, one where your caravan was ambushed and one in the northern corner of the map. As soon as you find one, give a protective escort and bring it to the orange city in the eastern corner of the map. 4. Queen Zenobia The main threat to your northern Town Centers is to the north. Quickly train villagers at all your town centers and research axemen. Build a Barracks at each of your northern Town Centers, and attack the northern Civilization. The Zenobian's main defense is towers, so bring siege equipment. Also prepare for a strong armada, however. Make sure to bring some infantry and archers as well. 5. Coming of the Huns Pay tribute whenever it is demanded, until you have built enough of a defensive army to repel a large invasion. You will have some time before any of the Huns' allies attack you, so make the most of it. When you do attack the Huns, they will have balistae, heavy horse archers, academy units, broad swordmen, composite bowmen and armored elephants. Bring some strong infantry and archers. Good Luck! 4: EXPANSION IV EMEMIES OF ROME 1: Crossing the Alps Looking for the Scouts? On the map, there will be two yellow areas you can see to begin with. One of them is an area where your 'scouts' (villagers) are being held. You can order them to attack the walls without fear, because the town will be bracing for your attack. When they get out, build a storage pit and some towers around it, then start collecting wood and gold. (In case you're wondering why, it's so you can create priests later to heal your troops.) When you start moving, run right past the first tower. Do NOT go between the flags, it is just a waste of time. Instead, follow the road along the cliffs. You will see the cliffs to your south cease going east and start going south. Follow them south until you run into a pair of canyons. Take the second canyon you run into (following these instructions will bypass the first village completely) If you have the aforementioned priests ready, march on to the second town with no fear, otherwise, hang out in the canyon for a while. When you are ready to move through, you should have at least three priests first, you will have to break through a series of walls, preferably with NON-armored elephants. (If I get one comment from someone in the Commonwealth of Britain over the word 'armor' I will just remind you that our currency AND dialect of English are better over here) Have the priests heal your troops once you pass through, or have them convert units. Then just pass through the flags. (Wow, that one's involved) 2: Third Greek War First, you'll have to move your camp up the river, across the shallows to the north before building your Town Center. 'Careful' exploration will reveal the fact that the main enemy's base is about three inches from your starting location (and interestingly, the best place to begin your assault). Speaking of assaults, you will need massive amounts of siege weapons and *quick* melee troops to combat the academy units, siege equipment and towers protecting the Government Center. The Government center is to the northwest of the Town Center, which is south of your starting location. 3: Spartacus Research writing early on. If you do, you will notice several scythe chariots, scouts and horse archers (those foolish Romans, teaching their slaves to use scythe chariots and be horse archers. Tsk, Tsk, Tsk.) attacking the town. Don't worry about them until you honestly think you can defeat them. If too much of Italy (the yellow civilization) is being destroyed, build some towers around on of the many town centers or storage pits and protect at least one villager. Aside from the charioteers, horse archers and scouts, your main threats when attacking will be MASSIVE amounts of both siege weapons and armored elephants. 4: Odenathus vs. Persians First, build additional towers around your two outposts. There are actually two Persian camps, one in the northern corner, one in the eastern corner, and several archers protecting the land between. The northern camp has only a few towers, archers, houses and the Persian temple. The eastern has most of the troop training facilities, so build a massive force before attempting to defeat it. Most of the Persian defenses are siege weapons, academy units and swordmen. 6: Cheat Codes Press enter, then type in the corresponding codes as below EXACTLY: 1000 gold COINAGE 1000 food PEPPERONI PIZZA 1000 stone QUARRY 1000 wood WOODSTOCK Makes animal into 'King' type animals GRANTLINKSPENCE Baby wields super gun POW!

Then press ctrl+v and enter, over and over again. 7: FAQ Q: The Cheats aren't working for me. What's wrong? A: First, the cheats won't work in a multiplayer game, only single player. Second, the ZEUS cheat does not work on the gold edition, and it doesn't effect cheat units. Next, if you have the demo (trial) version, there are other cheats for some effects. Finally, see if your cheat is being displayed as a chat message. If it is, you entered it wrong. Q: I used a cheat to create a unit, but it didn't appear. What happened? A: It should appear next to your town center. If it didn't, see if you have another town center. Sorry, you can't pick which one it will appear at, and it won't work if you don't have a town center. Q: My computer slows down whenever I move my army. I checked the system requirements and it meets them. What's wrong? A: First, this can happen if you use the NO FOG cheat in conjunction with REVEAL MAP. If you didn't cheat, then the fact of the matter is that (a) your town(s) is(are) too big, or (b) your army is so big that it stresses your video drivers. If worse comes to worse, you'll just have to cut down on the size of your army (or city) or just deal with it. You could also do a full install and set the speed to slow. Sad, but true. 8: Scoring Military: Kills: 1\2 point each Buildings Razed: 1 point each Generalship: #of kills - #of casualties (negative results don't count) Most Military Units and Towers: +25 points Economy: Gold Obtained: 1\100 of total amount of gold Resources Tributed: 1\60 of value Population(Villagers, trade, transport and fishing ships): 1 point each Most Villagers(see above): +25 points Area Explored: 1 point for every 3% of the map explored Most Area Explored: +25 points Religion: Conversions: 2 points a conversion Most Conversions: +25 points Temples: 3 points each Ruins Controlled: 10 points each Artifacts Controlled: 10 points each Control of All Ruins\Artifacts: +50 points Technology: Technologies Researched: 2 points each Most Technologies Researched: +50 points First Civilization to Bronze Age: +25 points First Civilization to Iron Age: +25 points Other: Elimination Before Game End: -100 points Wonders At Game End: 100 points each 9: Hotkeys Spacebar: Selected Unit* CTRL+H: Town Center* CTRL+B: Barracks* CTRL+D: Dock* CTRL+A: Archery Range* CTRL+K: Siege Workshop CTRL+L: Stable CTRL+P: Temple CTRL+Y: Academy +: Increase Game Speed -: Decrease Game Speed ESC: Deselect Unit\Building ENTER: Send Chat Message Arrow Keys: Scroll Around the Map CTRL+(1-9): Assign Selected Units to This Group Number** (1-9): Select Group Number (1-9)** ALT+(1-9): Select and Center Map on Group (1-9)** SHIFT+(1-9): Select Group (1-9) in Addition to Any Units Selected** F1: Help F3: Pause F10: Game Menu F11: Bring Up Game Time and Population Count *Centers View on and Selects; Press Again for Next Building of the same type **Don't Actually Put Parenthesis Around the Number 10: Credits First, let me thank Microsoft for their highly informative manual.

You have a question not answered anywhere in the FAQ. 2. You like my work and would like to give me 'props'. 3. You have a VALID criticism. (if it is invalid, I have some methods of vengeance that aren't ethical, but incredibly legal) 4. You would like to place my FAQ on your WebPage. 5. You are sending me some chain letter because you have no friends to send it to. (Remember those methods?)
