Endless Stones/Cows for Siege Equipment:
—————————————-
Highlight the now empty equipment. Youll see 3 green arrows fanning outwards,
indicating you want your engineers to leave it. Click on it to do so, and
theyll 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 youll 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 dont think youll be using to free up additional engineers.

Select a cannon fodder troop, such as a spearman. Creep him towards the
opposing castles 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 youd lose only one.
Once completed, let loose! Youll notice you now have 20 stone and at least
2 cows for the new equipment. When its gone dry, reassign those engineers
to build a new piece, and youll again have 20 stone and 2 cows.

Repeat as necessary, from all possible angles. Using this technique, its
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.

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.

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.

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 Wolfs keep. Do not send all of your men at once
because they will die by fire.

Instant transportation of goods:
——————————–
Isolate the stockpile, granary, and armory by surrounding them with a wooden
fence, or by placing them in a non accessible area (on top of cliffs, etc.).
All goods will be transported instantly to each of them. Note: Granary and
armory must have at least one open space to each section as a delivery port
or they will only fill up once. If the granary can not be isolated, surround
farms and bakers with wooden fence for instant transport of food to the granary.
If the armory can not be isolated, surround arms buildings with wooden fence
for instant transport of weapons to the armory.
