problems with Civ2, launch error and crashes, I made sure to run it in comp "WinXp Service pack 3, and "run as admin. before that you´ll have to use this patch *Civ2x64EditboxPatcher and also I downloaded from (not here), containing that patch and ISO file, not some freakin headache MDF etc SHAIT, f*ckin lost 2hours jwith this shait, why don´t you just iplooad the ISO and spare the time and effort, is that so hard?

Can get it to launch a new game, tried with the Scifi mode, keeps crashing just after all the choices are ticked, someone know what´s wrong with this? (I´m running it on compatibility Win Xp Service Pack 2)

how do i use it on a chromebook??????

For both downloads, I found the easiest way to use Iso9660 Analyzer Tool, which does NOT require an install - just the lone executable. Hop over to command line and use the syntax "iat.exe " and you should be good to go. For the English version, use the IMG file.

Win 10 does NOT have XP compatibility mode only win 7 and maybe 8 if u r trying to get these old games to run on 64 bit platforms good luck to you.

For the "create city crash" on Windows 10 1709 this patch work for me:

I tried to do it Paul. I can start a new game, build two or three cities and then the game crash again...

If you have recently updated Windows 10, make sure you run 'troubleshoot compatibility' and select 'windows XP service pack 3', this should stop it from crashing from using the keyboard/renaming cities

I just updated windows 10 (1709 version), and I have some new bugs with civ2.

If I try to build a new city or if I want to change the name of a city, the game stop...

Before this update, the game was working fine

Plays ok on Win10 (see tutorial here: )
but it seems that the music is missing from the CD...

for those who you having problems, the IMG file in the archive on this page appears to be corrupt; most likely it was inadvertantly uploaded this way (it passes CRC, so it's not corrupted on download).

Maybe find the game somewhere else unless this is fixed.

You need to run the installer itself in Win XP Service Pack 3 mode, as an administrator. Be sure to set the mode to run the game the same way, as an administrator. That's how I got mine to run. If Win XP SP3 doesn't work, try Vista for both. I used to run it in Vista all the time.

So i´ve managed to open the Autostart Menu (using DeamonTools), but after starting the installation, nothing happens

The task manager tells me about a process called 32-bit-setup-launcher and thats it.
no window, no action, no icon of processing data...

Im running on win10 btw

You need to burn the image to a CD. I used ImgBurn (because the latest version makes AVG go crazy). It installed and runs on Windows 10 but it hangs at the point of entering the game. Given a little time I think I can get it working.

re: all+any failed attempts at installion of old games [particularly D.O.S. & PRE-ACTIVATION-WINs]... Try Using DOS-Box if You Are a WIN Guy; or... WINESKIN FOR MAC [lets you use WIN.*.exe progs [Games & APPS like DataBases & A\V & Security\BenchMarkers] within a 'WIN' sandbox-type enviroment, windowed or fullscreen].
just be carefull to AVOID installing into the Windows Programme-Files Dir... Microsoft defaults it to requiring very limited Administrator Privs.

what a waste of time. I have found exactly *nothing* that recognizes the .img file in this download, I've tried 5 programs, including DOSBox, D-Fend Reloaded and OSFMount. Using Win10... so if you have Win10, don't waste your precious time or bandwidth on this piece of garbage...

im still not sure how to install this game, even after reading the Guide, please help me instal this amazing game!!!!

Civguy 2015-08-29 -1 point

Don't install on same pc as Civ2mge. Weirdness ensues. But copy civ2mge heralds, WW movies, advisors into 2tot folder and it looks pretty good. Remember to use the 'no limits patch' for population and gold.
