Description

This patch for Populous 3: The Beginning doesn't work with the 'software rendering' version of the game. Be also aware that it let's you enter any resolution, but the game actually only accepts resolutions up to: 1440x900 (for 16:10) and 1280x1024 (for 4:3). It doesn't seem to support 16:10 resolutions. For color depth, enter "16".
