Ok, So I got my Civ IV today. Unfortunately, it isn't working. It won't start. I kick it up, the loading thing comes up, then it says "Check XML" and just disapeers, game dosen't load. I tried the ATi card fix [Have an X600], but to no avail. I always thought XML was an internet language. I'm pretty pissed really, I payed 18 quid and I want it to work, if anyone can give me any help with this, I'd be ever so grateful. I'm on Catalyst 5.9. Updated my sound drivers aswell. P4 3.4ghz EE 1GB Ram ATi X600 Soundblaster Live! 24-bit external sound card Windows XP, SP2. No error appears either, it just goes back to desktop, it's rather annoying.
Thanks in Advance, Grimme.
I have the exact same problem. Did you find any solution?
Pink, did you try the ATI-card fix and download the new patch?
I just did, and it works fine for me now. Thanks for your answer :)
No problem :)
I also have the problem to start the game
it say LoadXML call failed and then some other stuff any had that problem cos really looked forward to this game, i have Nvidia card
It seems that the patch solved the XML problem for some people, did you try it already?
hmm what patch is that ? i use some update called civ4v109, iam not sure thats the right one then or are there some other ?
Yes, 1.09 is the latest version right now.
