I'm stuck with the patch and hoping you can help. Started up Civ earlier, and got the Incorrect Installation (10) errors others mentioned on here. Evntually got past that, and steam announced it was downloading the patch. Seemed to go very quickly - maybe 20 seconds? Starting up the game then, I now don't get text on the initial menus, just the XML tags, e.g. TXT_KEY_LEGAL_BODY, TXT_KEY_MULTIPLAYER, etc.. Out of interest I went through the menus to start a game, but it hung on the Begin the Journey screen. Same problem loading a saved game Having read comments on here, I did the verify local content thing: one file needed redownloading, apparently. Still the same problem. Exited from Steam, reloaded steam, restarted Civ - same problem. Following suggestions, I then deleted all the local content and redownloaded. Took about two hours. Still no joy - same XML tags, and still saying 1 file failed to validate and will be reacquired.
