Aspyr Media has released yet another universal binary patch, this time for Civilization III Complete. The patch updates both Civilization 3 Complete and the unsupported Civilization 3 Play the World applications and will update any version of Civilization III Complete Macintosh to version 1.22 Rev A.

Here's a list of changes and fixes:

- Provides a Universal Binary for both the Civilization 3 Complete and Play the World applications.
- Fixes error "Load Error: Error Reading file: Missing Entry in: Game DatatextPediaIcons.txt"
- Fixes instances where game would sometimes fail when completing research, giving an error about missing Civilopedia entries or other strange behavior.
- Fixed sporadic crashes when music cues were being stopped.
- Music stuttering should be greatly reduced.
- Custom scenarios (such as the SGOTM at civfanatics.com) are now properly found if placed in "~/Documents/Civilization 3 Complete/Scenarios" (searched first) or "Conquests Game Data/Scenarios" (searched second)
- Saved files are now compressed. (Autosave files are never compressed, which is the same as the PC version.)
- When playing fullscreen (as opposed to a window), you may now temporarily leave the game by using either Cmd-H (OSX's hide command) or Cmd-Tab. Clicking on the game icon in the dock (or using Cmd-Tab again) will return you back to where you were.
- Compatibility fixes for several third-party mods. In particular, the "Rhye's of Civilization" mod now works. As a side effect, network games will not work with previous versions.

Brad has definitely been the Universal master for us lately! He put a lot of work in on these over the past few months, it's great to have them see the light of day!

Thanks to Glenda, Brad, and all the friendly Aspyr folks!  

My wife's MacBook doesn't run CIV IV all that well, so I'm keeping that one for myself and putting my copy of Civ III Complete on her machine instead :-)
