    I have been playing Civ for a while and i just downloaded the WOC mod and started playing. i love the big earth map but i keep running into an error.
    Error given is Bad Memory Allocation.
    How do i fix this??

    i have a geforce 8600cts, 256 mb card
    2 gigs of memory.

    do i need to get like 4 gigs of memory or a new graphics card? Or both?

    What is needed to play a Giant map with 28 Civs where it does not take 45 secs a turn to process the computer?

    Any ideas or help would be nice.

    Wow we havent seen that ghost for awhile. A couple things you can do.

    1. When the turns start running slower, save your game, then change your graphics in custom game to a lower setting.

    2. Depending on your Operating system "Xp,Vista,Vista 64 bit" more memory would help. I have 4 Gb in both of my machines, running Vista Home Premium.

    3. turn off any background programs that may be using memory, noncritical ones.

    4. If your like me and play for hours, you will need to save and reload occassionally.

    Hope that helps.
