Second Civilization III Patch Coming Soon
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

While the recent version 1.17f patch for Civilization III addressed a huge list of issues with the game, it seems also to have caused instability on some users' machines.

In a recent post to the IMG Forums, Westlake Interactive's Brad Oliver explains there is a new bug in the PC code wrapped into version 1.17, and he hopes to have a second patch available soon to rectify the issue:

We identified a pretty major bug in the PC code today that is the cause of most of the new crashes in 1.17f. It should be fixed in the next Mac patch. And to stave off the inevitable next question, no I don't know exactly when it'll be ready but hopefully before the next PC patch.
Thanks are due to Oliver and all parties for determining the problem so quickly. We're sure MacSoft and Westlake will have a solution for Mac players as soon as possible.
