Ok, I've never loaded a mod before for Civ, so I'm a complete newbie. Here's a few facts to help you help me! I am running Windows Vista I installed Civilization IV Complete My Beyond the Sword game installed to my "/MyGames" folder and I can't find it anywhere else on my computer, like in the C:/ drive. That was its default install location, btw. Ok, so for the problem: As the title states, when I start a new game none of the art loads. The Leader pictures, the territory, nothing. It is all this pinkish/purple color. I installed everything exactly as the readme states, at least insofar as I know. Again, I'm new at this. I am running the updated BtS with the latest patch, as well as the patched Star Trek Mod. The main screen loads just fine as do the sounds. Can anyone please explain, in dumb-person words, what I might have done wrong? PS: I have searched this forum and found people with the same problem but I didn't understand anything they said about how they fixed it. I know nothing about the inner workings of computers, just like to play games. Plus, I didn't see anyone having installed their game to the Documents/MyGames folder and I'm not sure if that is the problem or not.
