I tried to get MGE /music/Videos to work in windows 8.1, (Ok in Win 7 see further below) so far no go, the Indeo appears to install and --game seems to play well otherwise --music plays from the inserted CD, --direct play is enabled in Windows features --Verified in K-Light Indeo 4 installed (disabled it then reinstalled Indeo 5.11 to enable it again ) ==no videos Not sure how to proceed , if for example --Does MGE need to be installed in a specific location and named precisely in win8(may apply for Win 10 as well)? --Do videos need to be copied over from the CD and placed onto the VIDEOS and KINGS folder in the game directory on the harddrive? FYI Civ2 Classic works fine in XP, probably no big achievement, seems to need the CD for music, no way around that unless something I overlooked. Next, MGE (Multiplayer Gold Edition) works in Windows 7 WITH videos, heralds , the whole 9 yards after downloading and installed Indeo video drivers. CD in drive plays music though the patch readme gave instructions on adding music in the game folder. (followed this for no videos in Win 7) https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/problem-with-advisor-screen.465859/ https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/indeo-codec-troubles-with-civ2-solved.362336/ http://www.free-codecs.com/download/indeo_codec.htm --- Another FYI-- MGE runs though not fully functional in XP with the latest patches (ie Civ2 patch project or CIV2UIA), no games can be saved or loaded, but not important since it runs well in Win 7.
