    I don't see this problem in the other threads, so forgive me if already talked about and I missed it. I've just had my laptop upgraded from windows 8 to windows 10 and reinstalled my favorite game, civ 3. Got it working except for one strange issue. When I talk to another leader, instead of their face there is nothing but a black square. Does anyone know what is causing this and what I need to do to fix it? I haven't played beyond the first age but everything else seems to be working fine. Thanks!

    If you reinstalled from CD, try reinstalling again but to a custom location like c:\civ3 or something outside of program files.

    But usually that problem manifests differently (save files and mods confusion). I wonder if it's a video driver thing? Usually if the art is messed up the game just crashes. The leaderheads in diplomacy are actually animated (-ish). I would suggest disabling or lowering hardware video acceleration as that has in the past fixed weird overlay video issues, but apparently you can't do that in Win10 anymore.
