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 have a mac book and i have downloaded yahoo messenger 3.0 for mac my problem is whenever i get into chatrooms i cannot see other users on the left side, i dont know why? i have deleted and installed...


Hi, well this is indeed a strange one? I haven't really come across this exact sort of thing before, similar ones yes, but anyway, however I wonder if it has to do with screen resolution? Please try to increase your screen resolution, try to up it, as much as you can. I don't think it is actually anything you are doing wrong, i think it is a setting, to do with screen resolution/size?As a workarround, try installing another Chat Client, say one that does many differing chat formats, they are better anyway and have more features too, there are quite a few, but try this one, ...http://adium.im/ it will do many chats formats Yahoo among them, so download and install that, and see if this makes those errant lists available?
Another thing, do you have a scroll bar at the bottom?, if so can you scroll the window along to the right at all? just a thought...
