Got it at Target!
Ah hah, the manual scares me
Woohoo its finally here.
My amazon pre-order finally arrived in the mail. Hadn't even shipped till last Friday!
Hey tom did you get that by mail from US or in a store in Oz?
I bought it yesterday, but my computer is too ancient...
Got it saturday..... I'm here now.
I have the same question. I've been told by my local EB that the shipment is in Customs and not released yet. It might be held to next week! And we know that Customs is having heaps of trouble with a new computer system.
So I am still waiting.......
Anyone in Australia seen a copy in a store? Not I...
i pre-ordered it from ebgames.com in US
One of the first to get it in Oz -- can't name my supplier 'cos there's an embargo until tomorrow. Anyway, I'm on the Gold Coast, Australia. Went through all the ATI RADEON installation hassles, but the support site fix worked (had to use both fixes). Runs beautifully on my 30inch LCD (with twin RADEON 9600 PROs); sadly, not vey well on my little SONY VAIO laptop with integrated graphics chip. (RADEON IGP 345M)
Played the tutorial and it will probably grow on me, but I don't get the same buzz that I got from SMAC and Civ3 (just finished a 12-hour shift and have spent two hours with Civ4 since getting the init errors fixed).
Anyone know where we can get a copy/scan/.pdf of the keyboard layout poster?
Woot, ty Sid. At least I now know they didn't get lost in the customs backlog.
So only embargoed till the 2nd eh? *sets alarm*
I dont have a picture of it.. but I GOT IT!!!! I was reluctant at first till I saw that it was the very last copy at EB games in Rosemere, Qc... Before that I went at Future Shop at Montreal... and they were totally empty! So Im playing and yet VERY happy of it...
got it yesterday.
frys had some special editions!!!
but my tech map is in french?
Took420: Take a look around this site. There's a link to a Civ4 page to get a replacement copy.
NEW ZEALAND DELAY!!
Just received this email:
We're sorry to inform you that your copy of Civilization 4 will not be shipped tomorrow as previously expected, as our stock has not yet arrived into the country. Since learning of this situation earlier today, we have fought hard to secure the stock on time, but have now accepted that events are out of our direct control. We are disappointed that we are therefore unable on this occasion to provide you with day-one delivery - a service on which we pride ourselves.
To try and make it up to you, we have further reduced the price of Civilization to only NZ$79.95, a full $20.00 below the recommended retail price.
We expect our stock to arrive into New Zealand during the weekend, and your order will receive priority handling and will be shipped from our warehouse as soon as it arrives on Monday. Please accept our sincere apologies for this delay; as keen gamers ourselves, we understand the importance of day-one delivery and work hard to achieve this for you wherever possible. If you have any questions regarding your order, or Gameplanet Store in general, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Thanks for your continued support
So I'll be waiting until Monday 7 November(6 November in the US). Oh well...
Got an email from play.com saying that its been posted, should hopefully have it by the weekend.
pre-ordered on Amazon, and it got to me yesterday (All Hallows' Eve)
and just to say, it f'ing rocks! I dont know how there are true Civ fans complaining and saying it sucks
it's avalaible in France... just bought it this afternoon
but my tech map is in english? lol just kidding, everything is fine!!!
IT CAME!!! The nov.5th date on amazon was wrong..and no messed up techtree either. Hooray!
The good news:
The bad news:
The game just crashed when I tried to play.
Moving the 3d view is very choppy.
I'm playing on a 4-year-old water-damaged Dell Inspiron 8000 with 256 MB Ram
I'm not willing to shell out the $$ for a new computer until I get a job
Oh well, wish me luck getting it to work.
Acturally it turned out I didnt have the latest drivers for my Geforce lol. Glad I didnt though- after downloading it fixed alot of games.
Havent had any problems with the game since-everything runs very smoothly, the zoom, the leaders, units-the whole game runs great. I'm already liking the game more than I expected lol.
