Civ 2 for mac is best played on a mac with os9. if you have a newer mac with osx, you can try geting civ 3 or civ 4, depending on your mac. while civ3 has great graphics, the gameplay is much harder than civ2.

you can probably get a g3 or g4 mac with os9 pretty cheap. i tried to run civ2 on a g5 with os9 classic emulation (whatever) but it wouldn't work... civ2 for mac should be available online, i.e. amazon, craigslist, or ebay.

Civ II is a fairly old game. It seems that your PC runs Windows XP or earlier. It is likely that the site you read was correct, and your computer is too new to run it. However, you may be able to get another newer version of Civ for Mac, but check the system req's for any game you try to install. I don't know for sure if this is the case, but I hope this helps you somewhat.

I need to replace the game disc for civ 3 . who do I contact?


Atari bought out Infrogrames and currently there is no support offered for Civ 3 at all so if I were you I'd go to Amazon.com and pick it up for super cheap. $6.50 for brand new... 50 cents for used.
Here's a link:

Every time I launch Civ 3 it quits unexpectedly. It was all right a couple of days ago! What do I do please?


I have the same problem. I know that if you reinstall it you can play again and you still have the same files, but it's a pain in the *** and I don't know about you but I can't play new game. I have to only play quick game mode.

Won't let civ 4 play


Did you download it illegally? Regardless, Norton sucks and you need to get rid of it. Most likely The firewall in Norton is blocking access from the program on your computer. Open Norton and Find the Firewall settings (i havent used norton in many years so i forgot where it is; Possibly udner configure or settings or something). Allow access to the program through the firewall and if you bought it then allow full internet access to it as well. Hope that helps :)

Older ArtZ II with ADB cable won't talk to my laptop


I'm thinking this is a Mac-only tablet. The ArtZ II for Windows came with an rs232 (old mouse) port at the end of the cable, in addition to a built-in spot where the power plug attaches.You didn't mention the power plug on yours, so the Mac version of the tablet must have the power routed in through the cable.

Short answer, the reason the light isn't coming on is because the tablet isn't receiving power. If you go get a cross-platform adapter card for plugging in Mac hardware on your HP, it *might* work.

Xbox 360 two red lights in left quadrant


well dust can accumilates in the wierdest ways.

try blowing the air holes with a compress air cans. or take it apart and clean the inside. dust can build up with 3 months of playing depends on your area if you have pets or smokers in the area, dust comes from all sorts.
so try keeping your XBOX360 cooled as possible and keep it cleaned.

i use a air compressor when cleaning mine i try to clean it like every 3-4 months depending on how much I play it.


So keep it clean also red lights could mean no video device connected too, so check your video / audio connector.
