Try to change the resolution to 1024x768 .

If this is not the problem. Try holding the APPLE key on your keyboard down while booting.

If this is not the issue it is probably this option in the settings:

Try setting the "don't switch res for movies" -- that's probably what
it's trying to get to 640x480 for.

Infograms lists a phone number for support but the number is bogus, anybody got any suggestions?

They have been bought and sold so many times it's not even funny. Atari bought them last and then now they don't support infrogrames games anymore... It's kind of a big mess. If you have a question about civilization 3 or need a manual or something, just post the questions or requests here. Someone should be a be to help you out. Just be as specific with your questions or requests as you can be.

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 and pick it up for super cheap. $6.50 for brand new... 50 cents for used.
