Hello guys, although I am not a beginner about playing Civilization 4, I was long absent from the game and yesterday I just started a new game. Feels good to be back BUT there is one thing that annoys me as hell and I would like to ask if anyone has a solution for this. I've tried to search in this forum but didn't found anything and I think this problem is too "small" to create a new thread for this so here I go: I was playing a game with a few different victory conditions (destroy all other civilizations, build spaceship, be voted for the UN). After some military campaigns I've destroyed all the other enemy civilizations and won the game. Despite the fact that I am just in the year 1450 AD (marathon game), I would like to keep constructing my empire. Civilization 4 allows you to keep playing a won game but on the bottom of my screen there is now this annoying message in white letters saying "CSDanger won the game in the category conquering!!!!" So far so good but: How the hell do I shut down this annoying message because it does not vanish by itself (played a few more rounds to be sure)? Is there any way to shut it down? It annoys me very much, so if anyone knows a solution to this, I would be happy to read about it. It ruins any fun I would like to have in continuing playing my recent game. Thanks for any helpout!
