I did get win screens on all three scenarios, but didn't like my cities much. I started over, and have posted pics of my townhouses and win screen for Abu Sir.

CotN won't start after update

I spent all week trying to get CotN to work after I downloaded the update for it, but no go. I downloaded the update for DirectX, installed it, but no go. So uninstalled, downloaded again and again.... Tonight I removed CotN completely and started it over again in small stages. Testing after each ne...

I recently downloaded the update and now I can't start CotN. I have downloaded the newest DirectX files - several times now - but still CotN will not load. Attached are my DXDiag files.

I did restart once I realized that I wasn't set up to meet Rome's massive requests. But think I did well...Thanks for the fun :D

Thank you DoctorG! I took many anthropology/archeology courses in University – my major was Biology, and I did think that anth and arch were a great complement to that. I have always wanted to design or at least play a scenario that is true to the real life of the locals. I have just downloaded your...

I've been away for a few days and had time to plan my city. Didn't help me much. I got all three request completed, paid attention to the engineers, but neglected the security :(

I'll get it next time ;)

You are right about the kabloeeys - they are great and I especially like teh smoking ruins that are left :D The only thing I had left standing - besides the fountains were the silly 'celery' trees. I'm having so much fun :) and thanks for saying to turn up the weather effects. My old computer wouldn...

Monkeys? I didn't see any monkeys. I'll have to go look around some more.

And I apologize to everyone else if I gave Aramaan another nasty idea :eek:

When I tried before I had my Beauty rating up to 83 as well as all but one trade route open and still no large statues or anything other than Odeums and Theaters for entertainment. :( I did wonder if it was part of the corruption that the trade routes opened in a different order - apparently not :co...

Redownloading stuff seems to have fixed it :D

I now have straight roads, all statues and Arenas available! I'm sure I'll get a win screen soon ;)

From looking at Jimaaten's screenies I figure that something is very wrong with my game. He can build straight! I have no choice but to build on the diagonal :confused: . I figured I was having a glitch of some sort when at various times I either got all the large statues to show red, or just the Wi...

Has anyone actually got the win screen on this one? I did check out CBC and got a hint there, but I'm starting to think that my download was corrupted. I've got my Beauty rating up to 83 and that took all day to get it to go from 82 to 83. It's a good thing I'm on vacation right now... I don't have ...

I've got it figured out now, but will have to start over. My city is really pretty - even the Beauty Advisor agrees - I even used some land that isn't usable for homes to build a park. But as soon as I get my Prosperity up to 100 my Culture drops to 87 :eek: I will have to rearrange to better use my...

Doing well execpt that I can't build temples. Every time I try they get torched immediately. I don't want to give it all away so won't say what I've tried that didn't work anyway.

I WILL figure this out. Hopefully before I go completely white - or bald :eek:

OK - I think I've finally figured it out how not to have Rome stomp on me. I guess I'm a slower learner than I thought. Got my Favour up to 100, but still have low 'Beauty' and security ratings - security mostly because I still have crimes. I still have to figure out how to get the Patrician homes t...

You must be doing something right to keep us working at it even when our hair is getting thinner, or whiter, by the hour ;)

Keep it up. I'm sure we can continue even after we all go bald. And it is nice to have a challenge :eek:

Just so you know I've had to start dying my hair back to it's real colour. The white was getting too noticable! At least I've never been one to pull out my hair or I would be to bald to dye anything!

Hi Aramann. I've finally paid attention to the hints you've given about being patient and dealing with what you have available. Also started saving before I made any change. Still not getting very far. Farther than before, but still end up with Rome stomping on me :eek: I'm not the type that gives u...
