Version History:
(v1.4) 6/8/00
Added 'Forbidden Technologies' section to the 'Civilization Attributes' 
section and added the Demo Cheat Codes.  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.

5: Campaign Tips


1: Birth of Rome
  Build your towers to the north first.  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.

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.

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 

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!

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.

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 

Q: I used a cheat to create a unit, but it didn't appear.  What 
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.
