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

maybe your system requirments are not upto the mark. check the requirments of civilization 3 and compare with your system.or the game disk may have a problem, get it replaced if you can and try again. system requirments of civ 3>>> Macintosh:
  • MacOS 8.6 or higher or MacOS 10.0.4 or higher
  • 300MHz iMac G3 or better (500MHz preferred)
  • 64M RAM for the classic MacOS (96M preferred), 128M for MacOS X.

Computer games hestitate frequently.


This is due to using outdated hardware. Its not necessarily any one thing. Sure, more RAM and a new video card (even an upgraded processor if possible with your main board) will help. But if your computer is 5 years old, you need a new one for gaming purposes.

I've seen your problem countless times, and if you don't have an upgradeable computer, or its a name brand pc, you will need a newer one.

The reason it seems to get worse, is that #1, your hardware just gets older as time goes on, and #2, games become more sophisticated, resource intensive, and have higher system requirements.

Your computer can no doubt handle a lot of things without issue, but games, anything video intensive, or that require a high % of RAM, processor usage, or video usage are going to give you problems.
