Game Movement Problem

My units are suddenly moving instantly. If I click to move a unit the unit scoots off to the next hex without showing any leg movement or anything. It just zips to the next square. I'm not sure what I did but is there a control for this?? I tried going under preferences and setting all the animation controls to "ON" but that doesn't seem to do anything either. :confused:

[EDIT] Hmmm. I closed and reopened the game for the second time and this time the problem went away. Now I'm even more confused. ????
No need to be confused. It was the game preference setting. :)
Sounds to me like you had CAPS LOCK on. Holding down Shift will cause the game to move units quickly in the way described. This is particularly useful when playing in Debug mode, because otherwise it can take for ever to display all the AI unit movements every turn.
I'm afraid you have to uninstall civ, format your hard drive, by a new computer, and reinstall the whole thing. Don't forget to download and install the alpha version of Steph's mod 2: it's VERY important.

Alternatively, you can try Plotinus idea and check CAPS Lock is off.
Oooh, I didn't know about the SHIFT thing in debug. That is going to be handy!
