Apparently Win2K is the worst of the Microsoft O/S's when it comes to DOS compatibility. I can get Advanced Civ to run, but the mouse is restricted to the upper left quarter of the screen. (This means that I cannot reach the "Quit" button and must reboot.) I downloaded a mouse driver from logitech.com, but to no avail.
My friend Scott can run Advanced Civ on his XP machine. Eric can run it on his Windows 98 box. I'm the only kid on the block who's left out! Naturally these difficulties make me the more eager to get the game working. Once I finally make Windows bend to my will, I'll probably play the game a few times and forget about it.
