Rome: Total War Cheat Guide (inc. Barbarian Invasion)
By Soharic
This guide provides all working cheat codes for Rome: Total War, and shows you how to open the console to use them.
The actual codes to put into the console are displayed in boxes like this,
and underneath each box is a description of its function.

I believe that all of these codes also work in Barbarian Invasion and Alexander. All Barbarian Invasion and Alexander Unit IDs are also contained in this guide.

Any and all feedback is accepted, enjoy!

How To Open The Console
To open the console in which to enter the cheats given in this guide, firstly open a game of Rome: Total War and then press once the `/¬ (Tilde) key in the top left of the keyboard
A console should now open in which you can now type the codes given in italics throughout the rest of the guide.
Money
add_money "value eg. 20000"
Adds the given amount of money to your funds.

bestbuy
Reduces the cost of units by 10%.
Settlements
process_cq "name_of_settlement"
Completes the building queue for that settlement.

add_population "name_of_settlement" "number of population to add"
Adds the given amount of population to that settlement.

Note - Settlements with spaces in their names must have underscores in those places when using these codes. For example, Colonia Dacia should be Colonia_Dacia
Battles
auto_win attacker
Attacker automatically wins the next auto-resolved battle.

auto_win defender
Defender automatically wins the next auto-resolved battle.

A draw occurred, why?
Originally posted by ETW Commander:
A draw is likely to occur if a settlement is under siege and the defender counter attacks. This is because it confuses the game, so it just gets called a draw.

move_character "name of character" "X,Y"
Moves the specified character to the coordinates specified (X, Y).

Unit IDs are sorted by faction within the region sections which follow. Barbarian Invasion units are in the BI sections and Alexander units are in the AX sections.


Please Note: Some units are shared between multiple factions, but will only appear in one of the factions that they could be from. For example:
a) a lot of Spain and Numidia's units are Carthage units, and only appear in the Carthage list.
b) most units in game can be used by slaves, but only those that cannot be used by another faction appear in the slaves list.
c) Mercenaries (which can be hired by any faction) appear under the Slave sections.

I wanted to put Judean Zealots in Jerusolem. The id shown doesn't work and it crashes my game. I tried to spawn them with console and it shows error massage. Can somebody help me with that?

honestly,the best way to do it is just giving yourself a ton of money then,use a move_character cheat to pop a diplomat to a city and give the money as a gift

This is wonderful, great job. I'm glad someone is still supporting this old game, as I've recently rediscovered it since it was released on Android and I've been playing pretty obsessively for a couple months.

I'm now to the point where I want to give a bunch of money to an enemy faction but I cannot find ANYWHERE ON THE INTERNET a list of the faction syntax. When I try "gaul" I get unknown faction type error.. And I don't have the patience to trial and error the name of every faction...

Any help?

Oliphaunts does not make Elephant bigger, you need to click on a SETTLEMENT and enter the cheat, it might crash but if it doesn't you will get an unit of Yubtseb Elephants wich are ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE and are pretty much unstopable, they will be able to break gates on sieges, altought they cannot enter trought them
