I am unable to play Civ 3 on my MacBook. The icon bounces in the dock and disappears. A 'Quit unexpectedly' message displays.
This is caused by a conflict with the video chipset found in the MacBook 13" (Intel series chipsets). In order to resolve this issue you will need to run the game in a window.
-Hold down the Apple/CMD key and launch the game
-Keep holding the Apple/CMD key until the Advanced Preferences Window appears
-Select to launch the game in a window
NOTE: Make sure you have all Apple updates, as well as the Intel Universal Binary patch for this game prior to launching. This patch is not needed if you are using a digital download version.
