Are you running it from floppies or a hard disk?

The best thing is to run it from hard disk - saving is easy then. If running the A1200 version, it's also a good idea to hack it a bit to remove annoying screen fades.

However, the best thing is to run Civilization 2 on the PC!

im running it from flopies. 4 of them all together

Hack for screen fades? How do you do that? I gave up on playing it on my A1200 because of it being slow, and the fades weren't helping at all.

In the 'Floppy' tab of WinUAE, you can 'Create Standard "Floppy"', which should make a formatted ADF on your PC hard disk. Then you can insert that disk and save directly to it.

I should write something here about running Civ from hard disk...

The Civ AGA patch was on Aminet - I can't find it there at the moment. I've upload the patched AGA executable to the Zone. However, I think it's the uncracked version and will ask questions a little bit into the game...

As for saving in Civ - I'm not sure why it's not available...

zakfab, did you try to use the shortcut key instead? If I remember correctly it was Ctrl-S to save in Civ. That might work.

Or, I'm not 100% sure, but I think Civilization's copy protection disabled saving if you didn't give the correct answers. You might want to find a cracked version if this is the case.

yeah, i have an uncracked version.
it lets me save now, im not sure why it suddenly decided to let me.
when it asked me the question i guessed right :)
