    Hello I used to be able to double click a save file and go straight into my game but now it just loads the main menu, does anyone know why?

    I've never had this problem (CD version of the game, Win 8), but since no else is responding so far ...

    My understanding is that problems with the save file type association are normally caused by digital editions or maybe by Windows 10.
    If you've neither reinstalled Civ since then nor upgraded your OS, then I guess there must be some other cause.

    This might fix the problem (but I haven't tried it and I don't think many others have):

    Please note the next two posts about Steam (if that's what you use).

    Tried what you posted in the link but didn't work. I will just re-install everything onto my main drive, currently my game is on on another drive and my mods are split up too.
