Playing as the Italian State(awesome campaign btw). In the early turns i managed to capture Venice and quickly make peace with the Venetians. After the conquest of Venice, i went to North Africa and took the Barbary states. It is currently 1927 and i am gearing up to take Genoa. My aim is a steady increase in my power and victory through territories but this will entail me declaring simultaneous war on the Spanish and French, due to their alliance. I cant even declare war on a third part to only drag Spain into war as they are allied with the same people. I need to take the Spanish territories on the Italian Peninsular as well as Sardinia but my fleet is basically brigs and 1 sixth rate due to my lack of Dockyards. Should i wait until i can ally with France to not drag them in to the war, or create my own coalition of opposing powers? Dont know which path to take..:/

I have found having a common ally is no guarantee that it will keep the country you want out of the war on your enemy's side. Having a trade agreement with the country in question (i.e. France) will probably help. Another possibility to to sue for peace with France if they join Spain though again, this is hit-or-miss and getting peace with France might cost you a lot.

After taking down Genoa in one turn i readied my armies. I declared war on Spain but they dragged France into it. But with my armies poised ready to strike, i managed to take Milan, Savoy, Naples and Sardinia all in one turn and bout and expensive peace with France and Spain in the same turn. Added 4 territories in one turn and made peace. Pretty good deal. now i am giving myself about 10 years to consolidate as i am making only 3000 a turn due to my massive military. Good campaign so far though!

I'm curious what mod you're using for other faction playing? I tried one a long while back but it caused the game to crash more often than usual so I haven't tried any since.

Just using a basic all factions mod.
Try this website and download the Early Campaign No FOW bug.zip works really well.

get trade with france then become an ally, when attacking spain don't call ally's to help. france will be your ally and wont attack you. eventually you can get france to declare war on spain. i got france to ally with GB and the netherlands and to fight spain
