Secrets

Have up to 10 players in Skirmish

When you choose the settings for Skirmish mode (team color, alleigance symbol, etc.), Hold SHIFT and press 8. Then, press X. This should make the skirmish up to 10 players.

This also works with other numbers. X is the number because it's the roman numeral. Other roman numerals can be used, but they can't be more than 10. For instance, pressing V instead of X will make it 5 players.

Increase the maximum amount of units you can control.

Create an empty text document with notepad, add the next two lines in to increase the maximum amount of units you can control (the default is 250) it and save it as "totala.ini" in your Total Annihilation directory:

[Preferences]
UnitLimit = 500;

NOTE: This works only with Total Annihilation patched to version 3.1.
