    I play Civ on a year old, low spec lap top. The machine (a Packard Bell I go 4000) is pants; it runs Windows XP which I don't like at all, but I have no problems running Civ.

    (Now if only I could persuade it to run Forgotten Realms )

    Any computer will do just fine with civ 2

    That's the beauty of the game.

    Windows XP is no problem either.

    My desktop is a K6 800MHz, laptop PIII 800 - both run Civ without problem -- the fun will come at Christmas when I upgrade ...

    I've got a boring techie question, and since this is a boring techie thread (sorry Narz), then I've decided to post it here, despite the fact it is irrelevant and potentially a threadjack.

    I'm looking to get a laptop at Christmas (probably in the sales), so that should make my SXN playing more reliable.
    But whatever I buy has to be able to play MGE so what should I look for. I know Civ 2 is an old game and most computers these days ought to be able to handle it easily, but I don't want it to slow down terribly once there are a hundred cities on the map. If anyone plays Civ 2 on a laptop already then please tell me what it is, and whether you'd recommend it. All help gratefully appreciated.

    PS - I am definitely going to get as mouse for it so don't worry about the lack of number keypad or my having to use the scroller pad/ball.

    You need to install Intel Indeo Codec.

    It is a required component for civ 2 video.

    And the other "normal" thing - do a web search on MSVFW32.DLL to see if it has caused problems in other contexts or an updated version is available. (It may simply have become corrupted somehow - it does happen )
