Question

does Civ2 work okay on XP?

I read once that it doesn't really, so even though I have the game lying around the house someplace, I've never bothered trying to install it.

Though i see someone here has said it works on XP, so I shouldn't have any problems with it?

thnx!

Every time I play one of these old Sid Meier games I come away feeling utterly exhausted; a bit like the head sorter in a screw factory must feel after a double shift
So much tedious micro-management.

Precisely.

Do you know where the forum rules are? Read them...

Nothing is EVER free. Just ask the owners of this sight how much it costs to keep it up and running!

CivII is a game well worth paying for, it sucked up so much of my life for a long time. (/me looks lovingly at his copy of CivII and all of its expansions.)

But if you want to try out the Genre, go over to your local store and pick up a copy of Civilization IV. It is in every way the best game of the series, the designers truly outdid themselves. It manages to keep the old magic of CivI and II, and still add lots of new content and features that only make it MORE addictive

Oh, and be warned. Civ withdrawls are quite fatal. Its like the Spice; once you've grown accustomed to it you will never again be able to be without it for long.

Soon you too will be telling yourself yourself the famous old lie: Just one more turn.

I agree that Civ4 is most advanced and most user friendly civilization game, but for some reason I played it only once to the end?! :confused:

Yes. The game is protected. We don't offer protected games for download. Don't ask where to get it for free.

talking to a friend about this last week and dug out my old copy. Loaded it onto my vista laptop. The game drops every now and again but played well enough for me to fall in love all over again.

Is there anything I can do to get it running better on vista?

In my ideal world I would get it up and runing better and be able to patch it to network play and play on a lan with a mate?
