That was the story that inspired me to write this. Great story. I played a bit more last night, but was tired and forgot to save the game. The I started a new game today so I lost the autosave. D'oh! Fortunately it was only one turn, and I have the Notepad file of events, so it won't take long to go through that turn again and rewrite any events that change. And thanks to Theryman, I now have a photo-capture program that lets me take pictures of battles as they unfold. So we may now be seeing actual combat photos! edit: Now I'm having Vista compatibility problems . Even in Windows 2000 mode. I've got several hits in Search for the Fault Module Name, though, so hopefully it'll lend a solution. edit two: Nope, can't get it to work in Vista. Well, I've got a few plans to get it to work eventually on my fast new computer. For now I'll be playing on my old XP machine again. And yeah, one of the plans is to get XP for my new computer. So yes, I am recommending to anyone looking for a new Windows computer to get XP instead of Vista if at all possible. Civ3 just doesn't seem to get along with the newer OS. I'm not frusterated with the technical difficulties anymore, though. They're nothing a bit of chocolate can't cure!
