I have just got hold of Chronicles and was already an owner of Civ2 Ultimate ( UK MGE ) and was just wondering what the best way of installing these two to see if I can get the soundtracks & extra scenarios working ?
What do you mean? If you already had Ultimate Civ2 (UCC), Chronicles won't bring anything new in that regard. UCC should have those extra scenarios and a working soundtrack. Use your UCC CD to install/play that and use Chronicles for everything else.
Or wait... Are you talking about the problem that crashes MGE scenarios on Chronicles, while your UCC worked fine?
