Man the last few updates have seen some total classics, this is a great game and a fantastic addition to the site

*dont read the rest if you dont want to know about a cheat*

Does the way to get 100 or more ppl on any given map whilst not diminishing your pool of ppl work on the PC version?
If u wanna know how to do this u basicly put as many ppl on the Island as you want then press the begin button (or start whatever it is) then before the game starts move as many ppl as possible back into the pool by clicking the put less ppl on the island button.

Reading over that has got to be the worst description of a cheat and how to impliment it in the world, if anyone wants me to rephrase it in a way that makes sense let me know

I didn't find this game all too exciting. I played one level and lost like a bitch. :crazy: Similies aren't my strong point. LOL

Just wanted to give a little fact I have this game for genesis and it's called "Tyrants" not Mega Lo Mania. I could take a pic and post if needed.

This game is great! I used to spend days playing this on my trusty old Amiga 500 :-)

I have been playing it for some time now and i have some codes you can use:
Epoch 2: XEFABXIMHTZ (bonus=50)
Epoch 3: AXFBTGLPKBN (bonus=90)
Epoch 4: VEQDFNSZPHR (bonus=110)
Epoch 5: LPNCFBNYRHJ (bonus=120)
Epoch 6: TTLBRNBKVNT (bonus=130)

The "bonus" tells you how many men i have saved throughout the other epochs. This means for example that if you use the code for epoch 6 you will start this epoch with 230 men.

Hi,

Just curious,

Why is it that you can mine stuff thats useless?

e.g. Mining Parasite.

Whats the point, you can't build anything with it and it doesn't allow you to research anything...

Thanx,

I'll take a stab at this...

Yes, some minerals are red herrings in that they are not used in any tech recipes. However this only applies for the territory that you're in. In fact each territory has a different tech tree and minerals required for each tech, although the highest tech achievable in any territory is of course limited by the epoch.

With that in mind, personnel assignment is crucial. Mine them all at the start but if a mineral is not used in any recipe then one should assign less men to it. Reassign as soon as the mineral becomes useful if at all. It is not uncommon to have to restart an island due to inferior tech and minerals (ESC button LOL)

Yeah thats pretty much what I thought...

Thanx for confirming it for me.

I've noticed that even on the same island certain techs might require different resources...

eg. if you take over an adjacent section on the island you might require different resources to build a Pike than you would in your starting section.

Its pretty weird but still quite cool, keeps things different...

I was kinda hoping that you could modify your designs, like in one sector using stone for the tips of your arrows and in another using bone or something...

Now that would have bean REALLY cool...

Hhhmmm, maybe I should do a rewrite of this game in .NET...
