New Version of the mod that hopefully loads properly for those who were experiencing issues, along wth some stability fixes and improvements.

As ever, I am looking for helpers, particularly anyone who is interested in helping me plan out the next phase for civics and traits. With the original team dried up, I am missing the enjoyment of discussing plans and designs!

So Why not come behind the Door of the Vault Dev Team and be a part of moving FTTW forward to even greater heights!

I cannot start Civilization IV through desura. I have Civ IV through Steam.

Error:
Failed to launch item.

Failed to launch item Civilization IV, File is not valid
exe [c:\steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's
civilization iv beyond the
sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe]. [61.0]

Any idea what's wrong? (It has the correct file path.)

It's the steam version of the .exe so only steam can launch it.

You might be able to download a Retail .exe (Since you bought the game it doesn't matter where you download it) , but beware of viruses.

Actually, the above is the wrong path, but I entered the correct path manually. I guess it's not accepting the manual path? The correct path is:C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe

You know what is funny about The warlords theme song :P
It is a Lebanese folks song (a love song to be precise) the song talks about a beautiful women that the singer would let mountains bow before her then he says that when she appears she blooms as April ( April is month of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon Because All flowers trees Bushes Bloom in April) so if you take it that way you would see the paradox in the Game Title and the song :D

Hey does Civ 4 not like Vista? I used to play it, and LOVED it, on my old XP computer. THen I got a new computer with Vista, reinstalled, and it crashes whenever I try to start a game! It sucks cause I really want to get back on and play this game!
