Hi, The only game I play is Civ II MGE. I've been playing it on a desktop with Windows XP. I've not had any trouble playing it on my desktop. I recently purchased a new HP G-series with Windows 7 installed. I assume it's a home edition of the OS. I can install the game, but cannot play it. I read through the complete thread about this problem. I downloaded one of the patches, but I couldn't get it to work. I get error messages. I don't have any idea how to use patches. This is the first time I've had to do this. Could someone please recommend a patch for my set-up and explain, step-by-step, how to use it? Thanks.
