@spacemanG you need to upgrade vanilla to MGE to make it work (look for the patches in the download section). Vanilla works for 16 bit systems (and can run at 32 bit but not 64 bit). MGE will run at 64 bit. MGE is however known for an agressive AI. Another solution might be to create a virtual 32 bit XP system. IIRC others have tried this and got civ 2 working (look in one of the latest succion games. There was a short discussion about it).
