This section contains game specific notes for deploying and running under Windows. Older games have the most trouble, and require some black magic before getting them to work. It's also unfortunate that most of these resources get up posted to obscure forums with horrible layouts.

Steam

Steams applications are located under:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\

Civilization II

This section refers to the Civilization II Multiplayer Gold Edition. Getting this to work under Windows 7 is going to be incredibly tricky.

I've been told to skip Civilization III entirely.

Civilization IV

  • To adjust the fonts, you can edit the file Resource\Themes\Civ4\Civ4Theme_Common.thm. Around Line 371 is where the changes need to be made.
  • You can also use the Blue Marble Design.
  • The Civilization IV manual is available on Steam, though a login may be required.

Fallout 2

Fallout 3

Here's what needs to be done if you patch Fallout 3, Game of the Year Edition:

  • Games for Windows LIVE Disabler. Copy these files to your Fallout 3 folder and run it from there.
  • This doesn't work, and it will still crash. But in doing so, it confirms that the game will at least detect my video card and run in medium quality mode.
