Poor performance on movie playback

BY Permanently deleted user



When an inmovie game plays it is slow and regularly stutters....

  1. Browse to the installation directory (C:\program files\Firaxis games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4 by default)
  2. Double click on the file named _Civ4Config
  3. Browse through the file for the line:
    • HideMovieBackground = 0
  4. Change the 0 to a 1

If the problem persists then lower resolution versions of the movie are available from the links below:

Introduction movies
Victory movies
Wonder movies

Please refer to the readme.txt files in each of the download for installation instructions.
