"Civilization II encountered a problem"

I open the game, it goes to the credits screen, then i have to click to make it change. then it goes to a black screen. I click again and the game starts, but as soon as i get to the part where I choose my name, it encounters a problem and has to close! i thought it might have something to do with vista, but i'm not sure which compatability thing to change it to. help please!

Maybe it isnt compatible with Vista, you can try one thing though try running it by changing its compatibility mode to run on winxp.
Right click on the exe then select properties under "Compatibility" check the option to run it in winxp mode.

you can also try to run it using 256 colors

Problem running Civilization IV with Windows Vista

Okay, i play Civ IV on my system and i run Vista as well. Your best bet is the tweak with the compatibility. Find the install folder and look for the .exe that launches the game (civ.exe i think, don't hold me to that though). Right click on it and click on properties, then the compatibility tab. Try dropping the compatibility to win xp and see if that helps. If it doesn't, post your system specs and we'll work from there

The game starts but shows no resources in the resource 7 .also nothing on the civilization menu.

Could be down to a bug so check that the game is patched up to date, If not try to reinstall cause maybe it got corrupted.
Good Luck
