I've made hordes stronger, which has had a profound effect on the campaign. Hording factions now take a lot more to get destroyed, which makes the strat map look way more interesting. But one faction that never seems to accomplish anything are the Romano-British. Where can I find the file that decides the makeup their starting forces (they've got to be at least three stacks, and I only ever have to face one when taking Britain...
The name of the Faction leader seems to be randomized, but it's not a hording faction, so that army must be a regular one. It's not in descr_strat.txt, that's for sure.

You will find that in your folder named Rome Total War\bi\data\world\maps\campaign\barbarian_invasion.

Look for the descr_strat.txt.

Make a back-up before you start toying with that!

No, it's not there... I've really looked for it quite comprehensively. Maybe it's got something to do with their starting denarii.

Are you using the disc version, or the Steam version?

I ask because that file I wrote, in the BI/data bla bla bla folder, comes from the disc version and lists the starting units and commanders, as well as city size, population, allegiance, starting denarii, and a host of other information.

The Feral Interactive Apple Store version.

I've deduced from some try out campaigns that their starting treasury is used on that first army, which is apparently randomized. I've given them 20.000 denarii, so now they appear with an almost full stack of very experienced legionaries and graal knights. I'd rather prefer them to appear with 4 armies of medium troops and a couple of family members, like the Slavs...

How a faction spends its money is determined by a two-word phrase in the descr_strat file. For example, the Romans in RTW:

factionromans_julii, comfortable caesar
factionromans_brutii, balanced stalin
factionromans_scipii, bureaucrat napoleon
and the senate:
factionromans_senate, comfortable napoleon

Try finding the phrase for the faction who behaves like you want, and copy that to the line of the faction whose behavior you wish to change. Always, ALWAYS make a back-up copy first and store it somewhere outside the game folder!!
