Well, I'd be happy to help, but I am among the unlucky people who have to wait until the 4th of November...

I have the exact same setup and am getting the exact same error. I have tried unloading and reloading, and going to a lower display driver. What is really pathetic is my son's computer that has a crappy geforce 4 mx 440 64mb video card is playing the dang game now! I am very dissappointed with this. In all my years of Computer gaming I have never experienced a problem like this. I hope they get it fixed soon or the game will be going back to the store!:mad:

I had the same problem with my Radeon X850xt I found that by uninstalling and reinstalling the latest drivers fixed the problem, The same thing went for my dads computer, Try reinstalling the latest drivers for your video cards.

It worked great for me as well. Thanks!

Here's the lowdown on the fix in case that link doesn't work:

Requirements: You have installed a retail version of Civ4, along with the DirectX update on the CD. You have installed the 5.10 ATI drivers. Instructions: 1. Download, unzip and run this application. 2. From the menu, select PAK->Unpack. 3. Go to your Civ 4 Folder, Assets subdirectory (CivilizationIV\Assets), select the Art0.FPK file, click Open. 4. You'll be prompted to select an extraction folder, select CivilizationIV\Assets - same folder as above. 5. Wait. The program may appear to hang with the progress bar at 100%, but it will be done with unpacking in 2-5 minutes. 6. Move the Art0.FPK file out of your Assets folder so that Civ4 can't find it. 7. Run Civ4.
