    Did you ever manage to solve this issue? Do you have the older non-Steamworks version of Civ 4 installed? You have to go to the betas tab to install the original release:
    https://support.2k.com/hc/en-us/art...eamworks-Civilization-IV-Unsupported-on-Steam

    Not sure if that matters for PBEM games. I know the Steamworks update broke Pitboss games, since it completely removed DirectIP functionality :mad:

    FYI that I'll be a bit late in playing this turn (finals week), but should have it done by sometime this weekend.

    Who has the save?

    3 weeks, 0 days (and no one now cares about hours and minutes!) passed since the save has been handed on.

    Couldn't we try to move a little faster now...

    Last turn submitted to gmail account was by me ... Feb 23 to Academia.

    My hosting crew changed up some things and I have yet to find time to track down the tracker issue.

    Tracker appears to be back. It doesn't run in iframe.

    Hi folks, sorry for the long silence here. Can't promise I'll be much more talkative going forward -- but still playing, anyhow!

    I just wanted to say that I started this game during my paternity leave when my first child was born. Now, 5+ years later (or a few thousand years of in-game time), I'm on leave with my second! It's definitely been quite an experience to play Civ at this pace.

    Long live Civ IV!

    Congrats, grogburg! It'll be interesting to see how many kids you have by the time this game finally ends :D

    GPS. Glad to notice that this pbem is moving at a regular pace... I wish my other (very few) pbems where I'm still involved were in the same situation...
