Game stopped working after I ran the latest Windows 10 update sometime in December 2017. So disappointed since I had it working on Windows 10 without a virtual machine previously.

I've been playing this game for 20 years now. It's still my favourate game!
The newer versions have gotten too complicated. I don't like them.
To get this 16 bit game working in Windows 10 64 bit, I had to do the following:
- install Oracle's Virtualbox x64. (free program)
- install Windows XP as a virtualbox client. (Just follow VirtualBox's help, very easy)
- update XP with SP3 (free from MS)
- install Civilization 2 :-) (you can install any app/game this way)
Works great in windowed, full screen or seamless mode, just like another Win 10 program.

I played games on Atari, then Commodore 64, then on Windows1. The first day I loaded Civ 2 was on a Friday Night. I played until I dropped on Sunday and called in sick the Monday. And kept playing when I woke up.
Now I can't play on Win10. I've tried some fixes but can't get them to work. Tried the Civ 2 Multiplayer fixes and no luck there either.
I think I'll see if the local PC store has any old boxes...

If it's the 16 bit version of the game, it won't run on a 64 bit system, period (thanks Microsoft). If the civ2xp64patcher file doesn't help, you have a 16 bit program. What you *might* want to do is see about getting the Civilization Chronicles pack that has the 32-bit versions of Civ2, MGE and ToT with it. Good luck.
Another workaround for the dreaded "Hit B to Try To Build A City, But Nuke Your Game Instead" bug is to build from the menu. I figured that one out the hard way. ;-)

I doubt your tablet will play this...you cuold try it in DosBox (i run most of my games in it) or if its actually a Windows Game you could load Virtual Box on your PC and install windows 95 or 98 (ISO's are online I am sure....) Youtube should have plenty of virtual box and Dos Box videos to show how.

Any recommendations to be able to play this on. My Surface tablet everything I have tried is failing, surely it can play such an old game

I once spent two days solid playing civ 2 when it was first released. I missed a days work and only stopped playing when I fell asleep at the keyboard. I cannot wait to get back into the game on windows10. Better graphics on todays "steam games"but not a patch on civ 2 playability.

If the game crashes when you try to build a city ("b"), download "CIV2xp64patcher", by Masterx (google it:)). The game works on my Windows 10 system...

This game does work on windows 8.1 but you need to run it in Compatibility Mode

I have a copy of Civ. II gold edition, Windows version, and can't seem to run it on a brand new 64-bit platform with Windows 10. Does the patch below fix this problem?

Is the Civilization 2 works on Windows 8.1 64bit please reply early as possible thank you.

SHELBY - If CIV2 crashes when you try to build a city by using the 'b' key, then use the Menu options and select 'build city' option. Then use you cursor to click on the dialog boxes. This works on my old XP netbook that I use when traveling. Hope it works for y'all too.

How can I get it to run properly? I've tried running in compatibility mode.

The 28 mb download works great in my Xp virtualbox! I had Russian and French options on install, and French was really French but Russian was just English.
I have the real cd at home and so far the only difference I can see is it doesn't highlight the city radii. A minor point, this is great!

Is there an 'easy' (not terribly techy) way to play this on Windows 10?
Playa 2015-07-29 1 point Windows version
On building cities--use the dropdown menu instead of pressing "b".

Game crashes any time I try to build a city. Suggestions?

Mine will only play in French. I didn't even INSTALL the french version. x.x
