Nice try, but Gold edition only has the PowerPC binary apparently.

HFV of Civ 2 being uploaded to the zone now.
Not tested it, but it should be the 68k version.

Hmmm, the full version seems to be here but don't know the details to connect to the ftp...

http://www.hot.ee/macgames/

Maybe try contacting the web page owner "macgames 'at' hot.ee"?

I tried emailing hot.ee a couple of days ago but the address is dead. I think that one linked is the demo.

I believe the correct version has been found, I'll try it tonight and if it's good I'll upload to the Zone later.

I'm just amazed it's been quite so difficult to track down (although I suspect that's just been me being rubbish at searching!), as there are loads of links to the demo 68k version and the full Gold ppc version kicking around.

Civ 2 and The Settlers strike me as the perfect games to play on AGA-only shapeshifter installs as the slower screen refresh is much less of a factor than it is with games like marathon and dark forces. Those games run pretty fluidly on an 060 AGA machine were it not for the screen refresh issue.

I'd love it if someone could post a decent video (ie not a rubbish handheld cam of a poor crt) of a fast 060 with graphics card running marathon, marathon 2, doom and dark forces to demonstrate just how good Amiga / Mac emulation can be.

I've tested that (and found yesterday the same link DamienD has found) yesterday - it is 68K.

Also, if you have PPC gold version CD, movies will still play and you can have all other goodies like if you have full CD version.

Also to mention, it works well on RaspberryPi Macintosh emulation.

If you only have AGA try a different graphics driver iirc there was a good one for FPU (MMU) and some games run LowRes - 060 should be quite fast
