If you're playing it on a dual-core processor (and you probably are since you're using Vista), there's something that might help you.
While Civilization II is running, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to invoke the Task Manager, go to the Processes TAB, select the Civlization process (not sure what it's called but you should be able to find it easily) and right-click on it. There should be some option to disable one of the CPU's so this process runs only on a single CPU. That might help the dropping problem.

I never knew you could switch off one of the processer like that, thanks

Will try that I see if that helps. I am getting the videos and sound playing fine along with the auto save feature all of which seam to be having problems for other people.

You should not really download and play these scenarios:


Because I don't know how many hours I've been playing... And I'm not done yet making the Persians regret being themselves... Urgh I need fresh air, but I'm not having it...

Everything's tweaked, the units, infraestructures, technologies, even the terrain. It's a different game, and it's MUCH better than the original Civ2, makes lots more sense. And I did like the original...

Exclamation No Sound when I load a Game


I'm running Civilization II in Windows XP. Everything works great, BUT when i Load a previously saved game, i have no Sound.

I tried turning off and on again, saving with no sound and turning it on after loading. Nothing works. No "small musics", unit moves, nothing.

When I select Retire / Quit Game and get back to the start menu of the game, I have sound. And it all works well if I Start a New Game...

Any guesses...? Thanks!

You read the goddamn FAQ before asking questions like that.

Too bad it's protected. I'd like to vote that Civ 2 might be the best in the franchise, excluding Alpha Centauri.

If you can find a copy, it's worth it. Unless you're into graphics. In which case, maybe you're at the wrong website.
