Frequently Answered Questions [FAQ]

As this mod will be moving over to the new Mod Configuration Tool soon, please make sure to subscribe to it as it will be required if you want to configure the starting options of the Faction Unlocker!

This mod makes it possible to play any faction in the Vortex and Mortal Empires campaigns.

As this mod also modifies the campaign balancing to give the unlocked factions a better survival chance among some other newly added things, if you prefer an even more vanilla approach then consider using Mixu's Unlocker instead.

Faction Unlocker Update 01. December 2019 (1.14.2)[]

Older Version Archive (Google Drive)
If you are having issues with the current workshop version due to it being incompatible with existing save games, you can download the previous version[] of the Faction Unlocker from the Archive. Just put it into Steam\steamapps\common\Total War WARHAMMER II\data and start it up instead of the workshop version.

Alternatively, you can subscribe to this mod, which is the last version just before this one.

If you are not sure which version to get for an older campaign, check the "Read Me!" file in the Archive.

If you do not like the newly added custom factions, you can use this submod to remove them:
Submod - More Vanilla

Known Issues:
? The Vortex bar is currently not present for unlocked factions in the Vortex campaign.
? Multiplayer Only: You will have to temporarily reduce your UI Scale to around 60% in the graphical settings to see all factions.

Troubleshooting Guide for TWW Mods[]

If you crash at turn 2 and see Rogue Armies on the map and in the AI turn list, you are either missing the Community Framework or have another mod which is breaking all of your scripts.
Turn off all other mods and only run the Unlocker and Community Framework together to confirm it works fine with just those two, then add your other mods slowly and test again to find out when it breaks.
Please report the problematic mod in the comments once you found it!

If you are using the modded launcher, then make sure that !crynsos_faction_unlocker is at the top (or just below specific submods made for it with even higher priority like !!) or just don't modify the load order at all.

Regarding reports about Beastmen taking over Naggaroth being caused by this mod:
I do not modify anything about Beastmen, Dark Elves or anyone else in Naggaroth, so stop blaming this mod for what is either a vanilla issue or caused by another mod.

he might be nurnt out in general. he has been playing tons of PoE lately. but if you look he has literally 12k+ hours on the warhammer assembly kit. thats insane. Just be thankful of the fun he allowed you to have in the past. For now, use the MEGA faction unlocker.

The guy is just very busy during the past year, that is all.

I loved this mod. I've left messages here and Patreon and Discord.No response. I've pulled my monthly donation and I guess this ship has sailed.

Doesn't look like he's made a patreon post since April, idk it doesn't look like he's actively begging for money to me. He probs just found something better to spend his time on. Pull your Patreon support if you're still doing so I guess, but this mod is obviously dead, bitching and complaining isn't gonna solve anything bois.

wait, last updated SEPTEMBER of LAST YEAR. Lmao i love poking fun at this creator. Has a patreon, begs for money but doesnt put in effort to keep his mod updated.

Oh, looks like lots of people have pulled support from him since last time i look. Well, thats what happens if you dont do anything.

These lack of updates is exactly why I'll never pay a modder, they all get bored and sod off.

hey Crynsos, is the Overhaul experience going to be similar to what this mod previously was or are you adding more changes?

@iceFox you can get that experience from mixu's faction unjlocker... crynsos is great because its a rebalance of the game!!! thats why i love it and probably why it takes alot of work to update
