HOT SEAT


I- Locate the installation folder of Medieval II on your hard drive.


II- Locate the medieval2.preference and open it with notepad.


III- Verify the values of the following settings (if not there add them.)



[hotseat]
turns = 0
scroll = 0
autoresolve_battles = 0
disable_console = 0
disable_papal_elections = 1
save_prefs = 1
update_ai_camera = 1
validate_diplomacy = 1



IV Save the config file.

V. Open the config file properties (right click on it and choose properties) then check read only. (* Note: if you do not do this the config file will be over written on every new hotseat game.) You are now configured to play.

this is what mine looks like under hot seat

[hotseat]
autoresolve_battles = 1
disable_console = 1
disable_papal_elections = 1
save_prefs = 1
update_ai_camera = 0
validate_diplomacy = 1


which if I was going to set I'd have to add

turns = 0
scroll = 0

and like this said


III- Verify the values of the following settings (if not there add them.)

I keep a folder on desk top with answers to the most asked questions to save typing every time and had this info in 2 places instead of 1 and 1 didn't have all the info so heres the other info ..

[misc]
unlock_campaign = true

[multiplayer]
playable = true


and the whole thing including in game options ..

[misc]
unlock_campaign = true

[multiplayer]
playable = true


[hotseat]
turns = 0
scroll = 0
autoresolve_battles = 0
disable_console = 0
disable_papal_elections = 1
save_prefs = 1
update_ai_camera = 1
validate_diplomacy = 1



just like that and save ......... then important part opposite click file and make it read only



your options in game all your choice except last 2..
