Here's the deal, my friend and I have two computers on the same router, and we load up civ3 conquests with the latest patch (1.22), and we start a multiplayer game through LAN. It's us two and 6 other AI opponents.

Now when the AI opponent attacks a unit of mine, I don't see the battle. It simply gives me a message on the top left side of the screen stating whether my unit won or lost that battle. In my preferences menu I have everything set properly. 'Show enemy moves', 'animate battles', etc are all turned on.

Any suggestions?
