Stronghold 2 Hints for PC
if you would like to create an invading army to attack your castle in free build press F1 then choose the size of your oponents army and then you can position their seige camp. have fun.
Place a gate house with the bridge, then make a carter enter your kingdom... when hes on the bridge close it and your castle will be recieving those goods every 2 minutes. NOTE: this doesnt always work depending on your server.
Everyone says that if you pause the game and click on a building (E.G. A cathedral)you'll get whatever it cost to build, back into your stockpile. It doesn't work on my computer so I was wandering if it was real. (P.S. Is it because Iv'e got stronghold 2 deluxe?)
Always use archers, abviously, and put lots of towers, the higher they are, the farther they can shoot. Also, use the rolling logs, pits, and traps, they may be expencive, but worth it
