Populous II
« on: October 29, 2002, 08:56:01 AM »
Is anybody have an idea about how does the marvelous game "Populous II" or "Populous challenge" count points ?
Sometimes i make a verry long and hard battle and i win  only 15000 points, and i've already made 60 000 points verry easyly.
Does the "Computer assist" option affect the score ?
Or the time you have a leader, or bad have a leader ?
I play this game for 8 year now, and i've still not understand how computer count points.
We always discover something on this great game, it's so marvelous !
I've played a game yesterday without paple magnet, and we could made the vegetation god, but because the paple magnet was unreachable, i could not made a leader, and by the way, no god.
I wasn't able to lower land, but i've win (i'm the best for this game)

What will be the chalange this evening, and how much point ? i don't know.
My brother tell me about a trophee that you win when you win more than 4 star (more than 60 000 points, 15000 point for a star) is it true ?

Hi baba,
The point scoring system has confused me in the past as well. I think it may also be affected by the number of individual battles you win throughout one landscape.

I bought the game in '95 and would you believe, I still haven't finished it? One of the best ways to play the game is if you have two Amigas. Join them up for a head-to-head game with someone and watch as your weekend literally disappears. Populous II is , quite simply, a work of art.

I've not buy this game.
I don't buy a lot because it's too expensive.
I've download it from Back2TheRoots.org or the Ami sector one site.
I've played a cracked version of this game.
Sometime i buy game, but only in shop, (not on the net), and 30 € is my highest price i want to spend for a game.
I'm making a new version of this game, on my Pc with DirectX on Delphi.
I draw GFX With brillance on Amiga, this is the best paint package i've ever used.
For now, i can low and raise land, and there are some men and houses.
I carry on, a few month of hard work, and i'll be good.
I'll try to include a RPG-like health computation with attack / defense for each house and men, but i want to make a conform copy or Populous II first, before i upgrade it.
