So is it good? Got it for Christmas off my brother and intend to finally dive into it today, with the next few days off.

Any tips for my first foray?

I have no tips but if it's anything like the previous civilization games... well, it's been nice knowing you. Don't forget to eat periodically.

Yeah that's why I've held off beginning it until I've had a few days off!

Ronan (Ronan), Monday, 2 January 2006 15:42 (fourteen years ago) link

please report back... i'm curious!

I am having major directx problems and it won't work! grrr!

seems to be a common problem with windows, something about the necessary cabinet cannot be trusted when I try to install the latest direct x.

anyone have any ideas? I've googled alot and tried the recommended suggestions myself but I've not been successful.

Ronan (Ronan), Monday, 2 January 2006 19:49 (fourteen years ago) link

I didnt have any direct x problems, but I had a problem that involved the goddamn cds being mislabeled. I thought I was going to have to crack it so I could play it like I did with Warcraft 3.

in case you'd not heard, there exists a Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri Mod for the
Civilization IV game.

I read in some interview that they were considering the possibility of Civ4 for mobile platforms. I think that would be the ultimate life destroyer.

Ronan, Carsmile had the same problems and has patched and graphics carded his way to happiness with it.....

I am waiting for the Mac port, unless I crack before then. The only date I've heard is 'early 2006', but the company that is allegedly porting the game doesn't even mention it on their website...

I got it to work eventually!

See you in about a year then Ronan.

Those grenadiers are hard-ass bastards when yr trying to take a city.

I installed this yesterday. It was 1am when I finally dragged myself away from the pc.

Greig (treefell), Friday, 6 January 2006 15:39 (fourteen years ago) link

I like that we haven't heard from Ronan since.

Gravel Puzzleworth (Gregory Henry), Sunday, 8 January 2006 18:49 (fourteen years ago) link

so, I bought a new pc in November, with a shiny new nvidia graphics card. It still crashes the fucker occasionally though - twice yesterday which was most frustrating

What is this "Civilisation"? Is it some knockoff of that Sid Mier "Civilization" game?

Sterling Clover (s_clover), Tuesday, 10 January 2006 16:34 (fourteen years ago) link

ok, i mean, do they rilly change the title for the british release?

Sterling Clover (s_clover), Tuesday, 10 January 2006 16:35 (fourteen years ago) link

No, they just use the correct spelling.

got Civ 4 COMPLETE at the big steam sale last month---it's pretty great! At least the tutorial level was, with a small map and terrible AI in which I crushed my opponent without having to make many decisions.

Oh jeez that box. Must breathe. Must control impulse spending.
