Topic Subject: Out of Favour in Carthago
posted 05-08-07 07:39 ET (US)   
In most scenarios you gain favour points by supplying Rome with demands and requests. In the Carthago scenario this is not happening. Points are being deducted annually but the only way to increase favour is to send gifts which are in short supply. I have run for over twenty years, exceeding all the requirements except favour which is around 30.
What is the answer?

Demands and Requests affect your favour differently. Demands do not affect your rating if you meet them, but decrease favour if you don't. Requests, on the other hand, do not affect your rating if you do not meet them, but increase your favour if you do.

It's been a while since I played Carthago, but it sounds like there are a number of demands and not many requests. The pressure is on. Good luck.

I'm sorry Tony, Caesarius is right. There are no requests in Carthago, only demands. So the only way to increase favour is through gifts. Only nine gifts are available and once you have used them up, favour will not go any higher.

Check out the favour article here, and maybe the walkthrough here, before you start again.

My thanks to Caesarius and Kach for your help. I played the scenario again and won. Now for Viminacium!!

Wow. I was stuck on Carthago forEVER. I must have restarted it 5 or 6 times. This post really really helped!

I've been poking around the site a bit and it makes me realize that every scenario I've won so far has been pure dumb luck.

Time to REALLY have some that I have a whole new bag of tricks!
