Unlocking all playable factions in the TW games is rather simple. Note that in Shogun: Total War all factions are playable from the beginning.

[edit] Rome: Total War

1. Go to:

C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign. (gold edition)

C:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\Data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign. (Normal RTW)

2. Open Descr_strat.txt with notepad.

3. You will see three headings. Drag select the factions under unlockable and paste them under playable. this will unlock those factions for play.

4. For non playable Simply drag them from the nonplayable header to the playable one. All RTW factions are now unlocked. Save the file over the original and start RTW.

Caution: Playing as the Slaves or Senate can cause the game to crash.

[edit] Barbarian Invasion

The process is exactly the same as for RTW. Go to

C:\Program Files\The Creative Assembly\Rome - Total War\BI\data\world\maps\campaign\barbarian_invasion. (Gold Edition)

c:\Program Files\Activision\Rome - Total War\bi\data\world\maps\campaign\barbarian_invasion(Normal BI).

and copy the unlockable and nonplayable to the playable header. All BI factions are now unlocked. Save the file and close it.

Caution: If you start a campaign with an emergent faction, the game will not work.

[edit] Medieval Total War

While almost all factions in MTW are playable, the Papacy and the Golden Horde are unplayable.

1. Go to C:\Program Files\Medieval Total War\campmap\startpos\early.txt

2. Make a backup of this file.

3. Search using Ctrl+F for this:

   SetActiveFaction:: FN_ALMOHAD FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_BYZANTINE FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_EGYPTIAN FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_ENGLISH FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_FRENCH FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_GERMAN_HRE FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_ITALIAN FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_POLISH FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_SPANISH FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_TURKISH FT_MAJOR 
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_DANISH FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_ARAGONESE FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_HUNGARIAN FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_SICILIAN FT_MAJOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_NOVGOROD FT_MINOR
   SetActiveFaction:: FN_PAPIST FT_MINOR

4. Change FT_MINOR to FT_MAJOR to make the faction playable.

This is for the early campaign. If you would like all factions in high or late campaigns, edit the high.txt or late.txt file instead of early.txt. Same procedure applies.

Note: You cannot play Glorious Acheivement campaigns with these factions unlocked, only Total Domination

2. Open descr_strat.txt with notepad.
