Civilization IV, a turn-based strategy game developed by Firaxis received a slew of stability and bug fixes in this update. Developed by Electronic Arts, Tiger Woods 2005 lets you have a chance to play as one of the top golfers in the world and in this latest update fixes the troubled launch for Mac OS 10.3 users and other minor changes.

Civilization IV

Better performance on certain Macs (particularly G5's) that exhibited excessive CPU use in the original release. The game should no longer run dual CPU's to 100% capacity.

Fixed numerous sounds issues including missing sounds, stuttering, 3D sound positioning, and movie soundtracks.

Fixed globe graphical corruption at Low quality setting.

Fixed bugs exposed by having the "Big Blue Marble" mod installed in CustomAssets.

Known Issues

If you experience kernel panics on Intel Macs, make sure you have installed the latest version of the OS X 10.4.7 Combo update. If problems persist, turn off FSAA options and/or run the game in a window.
