    I think the patched AI MGE advantage is greater on deity level, although point taken about 2.42 being less than perfect. I've still got the original Civ2 CD (and an ISO copy I took for when the disk finally fails) so may look into Linux. I'm at 1000ad not 700 as I thought, but turns are...

    I'm quite far behind everyone else and unlikely to finish in a reasonable time. I do however want to finish this eventually as it's a good idead, so will just play it every now and again. I think I'm better off starting the July gotm to try and catch up. One thing I have noticed is the...

    Log 2000 to 1 ad Can't remember if I said this before but the plan was to have 4 cities close to capital just producing vans for wonders, these would be later disbanded. Have to say, it doesn't appear to have worked. 2000 Bokara Settler,Karakorum Settler (to build at possible 3 special...

    I thought the quicker route to monarchy would payoff better in the long term. Obviously I haven't played at deity for a while and with limited cities I thought techs would be hard to come by. I'm up to about 300 AD now and I think I've made a serious mistake by not going for Hanging Gardens...

    Thanks Jokemaster, that did the trick and I'm now back playing. Sorry for missing the comment the first time about find city. I'm still in the BC's but here is the first chunk of my attempt. Plan build initial city on 2 special and 3 temporary cities very close by. 4000 Hut = Archer or...

    I can't remember using the find city function, though it's possible I did after getting Marcos as after swapping maps I could find one of the civs. I was saving regularly and keeping a log so I'll go back a few more turns than I had been trying. Thanks. After rediscovering CIV2, it's...

    GOTM 177 Spoiler

    I had problems again. After getting MPE, suddenly all the AI had vast amounts of gold and built every wonder. A bit annoying as I was doing sort of okay. I was keeping a log so I'll post it so you get the general idea of what I was going to do, but until I get the problem fixed (must be...

    GOTM 176 Spoiler

    Just to confirm that after reinstalling I had no more problems (both with old save file and restarting from the original file) and Barb cities gave the usual amount of gold (about 80-100 if I remember correctly). I guess something had gotten corrupt somewhere.

    GOTM 177

    It took a bit to get it to work. I had to run the 64bit patcher on it but it now works (and I can see videos again now too.) However I'm now running an upgraded, patched and repatched version of Civ2 - it's a wonder it works at all! I'll do a test first on my old GOTM 175 files to see if the...

    I was going to use the patch in this thread. Is this the one with the Find City problem? forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=154251 However, with the map editor not working I think I'm better off getting an old copy of windows and using Oracle Virtual Box. They seem cheap enough on ebay...

    GOTM 177

    This one certainly adds an extra layer of thought and strategy. I think switching to communism for short periods every now and then to batter the AI may be an idea. Also the temptation to build all 20 cities as soon as possible may be prove to be costly/ delay the final goal. The problem I...

    GOTM 177

    Very interesting idea for a game. It will be interesting to see how people react to it. I can't remember the last time I built a courthouse but I guess I'll be building 20 (or 19 with shakes) of them in this one. This would have been a good opportunity to relearn map studying using the resource...

    I tried again, did roughly the same as before (3200bc this time) and got 105,548 gold. I'll reinstall as something's obviously wrong.
