[edit] Better fabricate claims (In Nomine)

In the In Nomine expansion, the Fabricate claim spy action was stripped from a major function: it doesn't make the target province a core province for your nation[3]. To enable it again, open (in the game folder) the file common/spies.txt with a text editor, find:

fabricate_claims = {
        cost = 100                      #costs 100$ ducats  (inflation modified)
        difficulty = 2          #2/10
        prestige = -0.1         #lose 20 prestige if discovered..
        badboy  = 1             #small badboy increase if discovered.
        capital = yes           #can only be done in a capital
        ai_will_do = {
                factor = 1

        effect = {
                add_casus_belli = THIS

and replace it with something like:

fabricate_claims = {
        cost = 1                        #costs 100$ ducats  (inflation modified)
        difficulty = 2          #2/10
        prestige = 0            #lose 20 prestige if discovered..
        badboy  = 0             #small badboy increase if discovered.
        #capital = yes          #can only be done in a capital
        ai_will_do = {
                factor = 1

        effect = {
                add_casus_belli = THIS
                add_core = THIS

Note that in this modification we also reduced the cost and removed the prestige and reputation loss when discovered: these "improvements" can be used with versions anterior to In Nomine, too. We also made the action available to any province (used to be capital-only in In Nomine).

[edit] Game tweaks

[edit] Playing in windowed mode

The windowed isn't officially supported[4]. Yet you can toggle it either by typing "fullscreen" in the cheat console (see the cheats section above), or by modifying settings.txt in the root folder of the game: find fullScreen=yes and set it to no (or if the line doesn't exist create it and set it to no).
