At the main menu, press [Shift]+[Alt]+[A] to enable cheat mode.

Stopping Bear Attacks:
When you see a bear appear or hear of one attacking, just build
a wooden wall around it and soon it will die. Or you can send
your Archers to kill it, which is a quick way of stopping
bears and gaining popularity.
Destroying the Enemy quickly:
In order to destroy your enemy, place as many Archers as you can
on the wall facing the sign post. A small number of Archers can
take out a reasonable size army.
Start the game with the strong debug command line.
Then, enter one of the following codes

Endless Stones/Cows for Siege Equipment:
This requires you to have some gold at the beginning of the siege
to work. When used in conjunction with the trainer "strongholdtrn11.zip"
you can have virtually endless pieces of equipment.
When either your trebuchets or catapults run out of stone and cows
during a siege, follow these steps to get more of each:
1. Highlight the now empty equipment. You'll see 3 green arrows fanning
outwards, indicating you want your engineers to leave it. Click on
it to do so, and they'll now be free for other tasks. You can let the
equipment stay to draw any fire off your troops, or decommission it
to clear the way. Just make sure you command your engineers to leave
it first, or else you'll lose them! The engineers are key, so be sure
to move them to a safe location. **NOTE** -- You can also use this
option for mobile shields, battering rams, or any other equipment you
don't think you'll be using to free up additional engineers.
2. Select a "cannon fodder" troop, such as a spearman. Creep him towards
the opposing castle's walls to check the range of any defending weapons.
Once this range is found, post one of these troops there as a "marker"
for the next step.
3. Have only one engineer begin building a trebuchet or catapult
*just behind* the marker troop. You want only one in case the larger
object (the equipment) triggers a volley of enemy fire -- that way you'd
lose only one.
4. Once completed, let loose! You'll notice you now have 20 stone and at
least 2 cows for the new equipment. When it's "gone dry," reassign those
engineers to build a new piece, and you'll again have 20 stone and 2 cows.
5. Repeat as necessary, from all possible angles. Using this technique,
it's possible to destroy a castle from right around an enemy, and
a good many of the bad guys as well. Then you only need to send in your
remaining troops to "mop up."
