Does anyone know how to change the faction colors (files to edit) in the Conquer the World campaigns? You can't choose them like you do in a quick battle.

Just because it's hard (in your opinion) doesn't make it worse than another game. Honestly, games are far too soft nowadays anyway.

Its pretty easy for me, also I don't think this was made by the same company as Stronghold Crusader.

a brilliant game of its time, i would call it a more serious alternative to the Age of Empires- and Empire Earth-series.
i personally like the worldconquest mode which seems to combine R.O.N. with the tabletop-strategy-game Risiko -> AWESOME!
