Here's where I'm at - Win7 x64bit; Civ2MGE installed from oem disk; MGE patched with civiimge_uccupdate3.exe; then ran Mastermind's Civ2XP64Patcher.exe. I can play! Nice. Problems remaining: (1) AI is short, brutish and nasty. I've read about the patch for the AI, but couldn't find the download. Also geofelt states above that it doesn't work after applying the previous patches. Someone got a link? I'm willing to reinstall everything if necessary. (2) Videos, such as the advisors, wonders, etc., don't work. I tried the ffdshow mentioned above. No effect. Uninstalled it. Anyone else got a solution? (3) Won't play unless disk is in drive. Any way around this? Regards.
