    I have the nvidia gf4 ti 46oo with an AMD 1.9 and running winXP. I have the 28.32 patch from nvidia and the civ III patch for xp. I got the game to play for about a week or so, now nothing. All it does is crash the system, and the computer tells me its the video card causing the problem, but I'm not sure if thats it or not. Has anyone else had this problem, and do you know of anything I could try to fix this? Geez, I thought I built a lean mean gaming machine, but so far I'm disappointed. Is it xp or the nvidia to blame? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    That's odd ..

    Cannot believe that :D , this game worked on my system three weeks ago with my first video card an voodoo3 2000 and xp drivers . Haven't tested with my GF4MX , i'll do and i'll come with details , until then if u want to play it try also xp drivers , should exist a chance :rolleyes:

    Thanks, that would be great. I'm pulling my hair out with this thing. Is it at all possible I have a bad copy of civ III? I was wondering about that too, because this same cd gave me a hard time with win98 too. But at least I was able to play it.

    could be the cd

    from what u are saying it may be the cd or something to do with your computer ( what am i talking about?!? )

    there is a patch for the game... that is if you bought it ;)

    Hmmm the patch caused mine to stop believing I had a genuine disk. ( I Do, Really !! )

    Civ III with the latest patch is fine here with a Geforce 4 MX 460. I'm using detenators.
