I have started playing a bit of civ 5 recently again and I have found out something very annoying which has made the game in some sense unplayable. Every time I reach the Modern or Future era it seams that the game crashes. It might be just that my save file is corrupted or something in that essence but it also could be a widespread bug in the game.
If you have been getting similar issues comment below.
Civilization 5 has lately been getting quite some heat lately on the Mac App Store. Civilization 5 (OSX Version) seams to have been getting performance issues most particularly crashing. And the response of the community has not been positive about it. The game went from a nearly perfect 5 star rating to a 3 star rating currently. And this for a app featured on the Mac App Store is not to acceptable.
Although I myself have not been getting these issues I have recognized that on some more low powered machines the issue occurs far more often. Which to me sounds as if it is a optimization issue. Which Civilization 5 was never great at compared to Civilization 4 or the upcoming Rome 2 Total war.
All in all Firaxes and Aspyer have some hard issues to fix in the long run.
Just a while ago I went to the the mac app store to read some reviews of Civilization 5 and many of the reviews mention annoying bugs.
As you see the reviews of the bugs are around the release time of the God’s and King’s expansion pack on the Mac app store, so it might be the God’s and King’s could be part of this. Also what quite strange is that these bugs have not been occurring on the Mac version on steam and only on the Mac app store version.
Their might be a reason to this and reason why it’s taken so long to fix is that the steam version and the Mac app store version have different code. It might have somehow in the workflow gotten in to a mess and it might be why its taking so long to fix these bugs.
What is your opinion on this situation comment below
Even though there was civ 5 update on steam. There was not one on the app store to my surprise, which means I still get the bugs I got on the version before. So today I was starting up a new Campaign with the Byzantine empire (God’s and King’s) and something went wrong with the load up.
As you can see a graphics but also computing issue. The most noticeable thing is most probably the checker board. But as you can also see there is the American icon with egyptian pyramids. ODD.
Even so Eventually my game crashed and you might say this is an issue with memory or graphics card etc. But i don’t think so as I have a sutibale graphics card to play Civ 5 (NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB) and I quite every app that was running so that could not be a memory issue.
If you have experienced this before comment and If you know a solution comment below.
Last year when I excepted new updates for civilization 5 or other expansion packs they did not come (which did disappoint me). Now I am thinking if there might come some new updates but not for civilization 5 but for Civ world. That’s right I think that civ World will get an update and here is why I think so.
Firaxes has not updated it civ world in over a half a year and because of that Civ world has now alot of bugs and crashing issues which make gameplay annoying and very disappointing. Also Civ World has not to many features and does not involve so much synergy as I and many other people would want to see.
Although the God’s and King’s expansion has not been out for a long time the first bugs have been recognized.
The bug I got was a one that is familiar of normal civilization.
The bug happened when in the diplomacy screen I payed a lot of money so that I could by a city.
The leader accepts and he get’s the money but I do not get the city.
As I said before this bug is really annoying.
Have you experienced this bug post a comment.
For the last couple of days civ rev and game center are not working properly together.
for example: achievments keep repeating the hole time. Or sometimes rong achievements pop up.
I think the most annoying of them all is the fact that the little button you press on the home screen of civ rev doesn’t work.
I do hope firaxes fixes these bugs.
The new civ rev iOS has fixed many bugs. But for some reason that I can not understand is that the game still keeps crashing. Could this be the cause because I am using the original iPad? Not likely I think but it may. Just to tell when the game crashes, the game crashes every time I try to continue my game NOT when I want to start a new game. I find this case quite mysterious.
Has this happened to you please comment and maybe answer this mysterious phenomena.
Yes again civ rev is having annoying bugs but this time on the Xbox.
This is what happend as my friend had told me.
” I had settled a new city. I didn’t like the name I went to the option that make sure that your city name becomes different. I typed in the name and waited until the name changed…. No results. I tried again…. No results”
Mm I know it’s not most annoying bug but this might end up as a catastrophe.
Comment on what do you think this might be
The first few glitches and bugs are starting to pop-up. When you kill barbarians most of the time you would mostly get a upgrade in you city like extra food or money but this time I did not happen.
I have been also asking a few of my friends who have the game and they say that they are having the same problem
