Civ 4 on Windows 10 – Microsoft Community
What version of CIV4 do you have specifically? What patch? And where did you buy it from? I have BTS i have all the patches I have a cd that is how installed it.
I copied it from a desk top pc on put it on my laptop. Please expand on what you mean by copying from your desktop. I don’t think that would make for a proper installation. Last edited: Sep 2, This approach works fine for some programs but not others. And I am not sure where CIV4 falls on that list. He should probably try a clean install directly from the CD if possible. If not, at the very least he should try and manually repatch it to 3. Do you think if I uninstall the bug mod that might fix the lag problem I have?
I have a desktop PC with Windows xp with a pretty good graphic card I can play Civ 4 pretty good with that PC and only has 1 gig of Ram but with a graphic card.
I then copied the game file on a flash drive and put it on my laptop has integrated graphics but with 16 gigs of ram but when the game starts it is not playable from so much lag. I did the compatability thing did not change a thing.
I removed some services i didn’t need running in the back ground and did a lot of stuff just to make the cpu faster nothing seems to work. In the show, various celebrities and politicians choose which particular gramophone recordings they would choose to be stranded with if they found themselves on a desert island.
In the fourth instalment of the game, the rules are remixed and the graphics are tarted up, but the engrossing turn based strategy remains as compelling as ever. The game should install just fine from its original optical media discs. Simply place the first disc in your computers optical drive and follow the on-screen prompts. At the end of the installation process, the installer may offer to install Xfire.
Unfortunately the Xfire service shut down some time ago, so simply skip this part of the process. Before starting your quest for world domination, you should install the latest patch. Users who purchased the game on Steam do not need to install any patches, as the Steam service itself keeps the game fully up to date. For those of us playing using the original retail version, you should download and install patch 1.
You can download the patch here. The retail DVD versions of Civilization 4 are protected with a copy protection system known as Safedisc. Unfortunately, citing security concerns, Microsoft removed support for Safedisc protected games both in Windows 10 and, retrospectively through Windows update, in Windows 7 and 8 as well.
Unfortunately this means that in order to play the retail version on a modern PC, you will need to obtain a de-protected or cracked version of the game.
As always, take extra care on the shadier parts of the internet when looking for these files. When you obtain the cracked Civilization 4 executable, you simply need to replace the existing one.
