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 info\" file in
the \"stronghold\" folder. Change all the values to
zero to make everything in the game free.
Select the start menu, click search for files or folders,
search for Stronghold, it should find a FOLDER!
With Stronghold written on it, open it then select game
info, change every number to 0 and save it, then
everything should be free!!!
When bears kill civilians, your popularity decreases.
To avoid this, simply build a wood fence around a bear
when it appears.
Place 1-2 Woodcutter-huts near the trees you want to remove.
I.e.: If you need/want to build in areas with trees.
Baker / Brewery / Weapons&Armory :
Build a wall before you place the Huts. You will now be able
to build up against the wall. Now, remove the wall again and
you can see inside the Huts from 3 more angles.
Stockpile / Granary:
When nearly full, you will get the message ; "Stockpile /
Build more Stockpile / Granary in connection with the existing.
If you want to "split/move" the Stockpile / Granary,all you
need is to build in that given direction and tear down the
Stockpile / Granary´s you don´t want.
You will now have 2 or more groups you can continue from.
Use the same method if you want rows of Stockpile / Granary´s
with an ayle in between.
Place Pits (small black squares) in a pattern ( your initials
or a logo) on a plane area, then set on fire with a bowman.
(remember to place a "Burner" in the tower you'e shooting from).
Now look at the map....LOL.
Stupid stupid animals. Bowmen can kill the bastards. Your "King"
can kill the bastards; highlight the king and aim on the rabbit
in the far end of the pack. The king will kill all rabbits on
his way to the choosen one.
You can also fence in the rabbits, but you will have to be quick
Buy some shrines and you will have a ghost of a decapitated lord.
(he is hard to see, so look close.Only 1 ghost per castle)
Endless Stones/Cows for Siege Equipment:
Submitted by: arun prakash
This requires you to have some gold at the beginning of
the siege to work. When used in conjunction with the
trainer "strongholdtrn11.zip" you can have virtually
endless pieces of equipment.
When either your trebuchets or catapults run out of
stone and cows during a siege, follow these steps to
get more of each:
Highlight the now empty equipment. You'll see 3 green
arrows fanning outwards, indicating you want your
engineers to leave it. Click on it to do so, and they'll
now be free for other tasks. You can let the equipment stay
to draw any fire off your troops, or decommission it to clear
the way. Just make sure you command your engineers to leave
it first, or else you'll lose them! The engineers are key,
so be sure to move them to a safe location. **NOTE** --
You can also use this option for mobile shields, battering
rams, or any other equipment you don't think you'll be using
to free up additional engineers.
Select a "cannon fodder" troop, such as a spearman. Creep him
towards the opposing castle's walls to check the range of any
defending weapons. Once this range is found, post one of these
troops there as a "marker" for the next step.
Have only one engineer begin building a trebuchet or catapult
*just behind* the marker troop. You want only one in case the
larger object (the equipment) triggers a volley of enemy fire
-- that way you'd lose only one.
Once completed, let loose! You'll notice you now have 20
stone and at least 2 cows for the new equipment. When it's
"gone dry," reassign those engineers to build a new piece,
and you'll again have 20 stone and 2 cows.
Repeat as necessary, from all possible angles. Using this
technique, it's possible to destroy a castle from right
around an enemy, and a good many of the bad guys as well.
Then you only need to send in your remaining troops to "mop up."
At the main menu, press Shift+Alt+A to enable cheat mode. During
gameplay you can now use the following codes:
Alt+K = Building is free, no resources are required
Alt+C = Access to all missions at campaign selection screen
Alt+X = Add 1000 gold and set popularity to 100
Stopping Bear Attacks:
(submitted by: Shyguy 6960)
When you see a bear appear or hear of one attacking, just build
a wooden wall around it and soon it will die. Or you can send
your Archers to kill it, which is a quick way of stopping bears
and gaining popularity.
Destroying the Enemy quickly:
In order to destroy your enemy, place as many Archers as you
can on the wall facing the sign post. A small number of Archers
can take out a reasonable size army.

If you have provided the people with good ration you popularity
as well as the poputation or man power will be incresed.
