Civ 5 game troubles [Jan. 8th, 2011|03:50 pm]
Sid Meier's Civilization 4


[mood |annoyedannoyed]

Until recently, I hadn't experienced all the trouble I had seen posted on various discussion boards about how the game was basically unplayable. But as soon as I moved up to a Large or Huge world, I too am experiencing constant crashes. it gets extremely annoying to reload every turn or even more often. saving constantly not to lose my place. I'd just abandon the game but I'm in the year 2020 and want the win.

anyone else experiencing trouble? As I said, I had played a half dozen games before running into any trouble.

For a while, I had numerous problems with it completely shutting my computer off. It was insanely frustrating. I started running it in windowed mode and using DirectX 9 and haven't had it crash since. Not sure which fixed it, or if this works for everyone, but that's been my experience.

It runs for me without any crashes on Large maps and above, but it gets frustratingly slow after a short while, so I haven't actually finished a game on those map sizes >_<
