    I'm noticing that when selecting my civilization the animated portraits of the people are not displaying properly. Everything else seems to be fine. Anyone else seeing this?

    I also have this problem. You either get floating eyes, or just backgrounds...

    I put it down to shoddy conversion as well as the general crap performance.

    Running it on a 2.4Ghz MBP with 8600GT. Quite amazing how badly it runs on that hardware, all things considered. All patched up too.

    Civ 4 has had problems with the 8600M GT ever since the 8600's introduction in the MBPs - Aspyr's stance (which, to my knowledge, has not changed) is simply that they 'don't support the 8600M GT at this time'. Of course, an alternative is to buy the Windows version + Warlords for the same price as the Mac vanilla C4 (which also gives you the option of Beyond the Sword for $20 more), which runs much better on the same hardware than the Mac version.

    (yeah, I'm bitter)
