Hi there,

I've been playing Galactic Civilizations for a while, and I just bought a new computer. When I first installed GC + AP (Deluxe Edition), I tried running it, and it got to the menu, I set up a game, and started it. The game loaded, and got to the Galaxy Map, with that popup window that shows up every time you start the game, about the hyperdrive and such. But from there it just freezes. No sound, can't click anything, I have to use the task manager to kill the process.

So I figure, maybe the newest version will help. I uninstalled the game + expansion, and then reinstalled them fresh from Stardock Central (Downloaded and everything. There's nothing from my Deluxe Edition installed, it's all the latest version.), but I still get the game problem.

Any ideas how to fix this?


AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+
2 GB Mushkin memory
XFX nVidia 7800GTX (Factory overclocked to 490 mhz)

I think it may be the dual core processor giving it trouble, though I really don't know. But I do know the game works fine on my older PC (A single-core Athlon XP), and my ancient laptop (900 mhz Pentium 3).

So...any ideas?

In similar cases a new driver for your sound chip did help.

When it does not help you should install SmartException and let it run in parallel. This should help Stardock to identify your problem.
