Mega Lo Mania: It's been ages since I played this. Harry mentioned an idea to score it by people remaining after specific epochs. Help me out and give me some ideas on what will work best for this please? :)

It has a saved game option using personalised passwords. Maybe those could be used for playing the epochs for score?

Darkmere is an action adventure. No obvious way to score it so we can play for progress again. Try to finish it. It also has game saving.

Whether it's with or without score - let's try to play through Mega lo Mania to the end. It's not that long.

I'm up for trying to complete it. Think it's about three hours plus reloads. But if there's a simple way to add a little competition in the mix it could be fun and a way to learn strategy.

I'll have a go at it sometime this week and we can see what the general consensus is. Anyone with a preference, let us know.

john4p 22 September 2020 14:30

Yes, better to have at least one game with a score.
Harry suggested "remaining men at the end of selected epochs" when he voted MLM for the league.
Let's just add up the remaining men after all epochs (that you can finish). There are 10 epochs.

Biscuit 23 September 2020 18:57

That sounds good and simple. Rewards skill and progress. Submit a score for each epoch while playing to finish the game. Save games allowed and it's fine to replay epochs using your own passwords. I'm happy with that.

Perfect. :great

Harry 24 September 2020 20:05

Score will not work as proposed. When you play the last island of epoch 9, you use up all your remaining men and in epoch 10, you can only use your hibernated people accumulated while playing.

When playing for score, I propose epoch 2, 5, 8 with the following passwords (Scarlet, taken from amicheats):
2: "KMEAKXROPNQ" with 200 men
5: "SDOAGLLIVPS" with 500 men
8: "SOYAECRZXFE" with 800 men
Play these epochs and try to have as most men as possible remaining at the next epoch (submit a screenshot of the next epoch and your password of the next epoch).

In parallel, we could play for completion from epoch 1-10 with saves allowed. (Note: Saving affects always the whole epoch, you can not save single islands.)

john4p 24 September 2020 22:25

Then how about we do it like this:

Play up to epoch 8 for score (without passwords). Take screenshots of the remaining men after each epoch that you can beat.
Saving allowed after each epoch.

After that you can beat epochs 9 & 10 as a bonus solely to get the star badge (game completion).

Biscuit 25 September 2020 09:31

Honestly, I could go with either of these ways. Playing only 3 epochs guarantees it's quicker to play for anybody that just wants to have a go, so I'm leaning in favour of that. Even though I will still be playing the whole game and it will take a few extra goes to put a score up.

Cool, I know so little about this game that I have no proper idea what all this talk about epochs is, but really glad we are allowing saves as I can play it 'regular.':)

Harry 25 September 2020 20:07

Just a note: "Saving" a game in Megalomania generates a password. Saving allowed means on a go for completion that you start a game on the first epoch, and use only your own passwords for the later epochs. And I need at least 2 hours for a complete epoch, so saving is indispensable for me.

john4p 26 September 2020 08:30

Even better, then there's no hassle with having to create a savedisk incl. possible data corruption.

I'd be up for this, October is the longest month of the year.

Needs to be. I'm hoping to beat Mega Lo Mania and Darkmere (will probably fail at least one). Plus every October I catch up on a load of unwatched horror films from my collection. :spin
