This is an informational poll to determine demographics of citizens, regarding what OS and filesystem is used by the people who want to be able to open the save and/or be a DP themselves. The options in this poll are not necessarily all-inclusive and it is not necessary to be deadly accurate with the responses, it's just to determine the impact of some possible technical answers to the "WAY too easy to launch the worldbuilder" problem.

If you have Windows 98 or ME you will be on a legacy file system, almost certainly FAT32. NT, 2000 I think you will be on NTFS, XP you are most likely to be on NTFS unless you upgraded from 98/ME without installing on a new disk or reformatting the old one.

Open Explorer, or My Computer. Select the disk root directory where Civ4 is installed. Right click, properties.
