    :confused: Hello, I recently joined this board. My problem is that Civ4 and Warlords come up properly, but when I play a game, the terrain is all solid black and no features can be seen. Units, rivers, and resources are visiable on top of the solid black terrain. Game play is slightly sluggish also. I would appreciate any help in fixing this problem so I can play Civ4.

    Thanks

    Have you installed the latest patches for both?

    It sounds like you have an old video card and/or old drivers for it. What type is it, and have you updated the drivers?

    My video card for this laptop is too weak. Both patches are installed but didn't help. Will just have to play it on my desktop and not this laptop.
