Relax, it works fine. The only slight flaws are the advisor screen does not work so no more Elvis and the animated heralds don't appear. There may be a way of fixing this.
Batch files run OK if you add the CHOICE file into the scenario folder.
I occasionally get an error message saying "Wave File error" that seems to be triggered by the sound of units moving. When this happens I just save the game, close Civ down then open Civ again and reload the game. It really doesn't happen too often but a fix would be good!
Looks like Civ II will keep going at least until the next version of Windows
This reminds me. I used to have a copy of Talonsoft's Western Front. I loved a bit of hex based WWII combat but one day it just stopped working (on XP). I even ordered a new copy from e-bay but this did not work.
I thought it may be caused by Windows updates but even when I reset the machine using the 'restore factory setting' disc it came up with the same error message.
I scoured the web for patches o solutions but came up with a blank.
Just mentioning this on the off chance that anyone has had the same problem and knows a cure
