Civilization IV Beta 1.61 Rev A released

Civ IV Beta 1.61 released

Aspyr Media today released a free update to Civilization IV, improving performance on certain Macs (G5's in particular) that exhibited excessive CPU usage in the original release. The game should no longer run dual CPU's to 100 percent capacity, according to the company, and some missing sounds should play correctly while others may remain inaudible after updating. Aspyr reports that some Intel Mac users may experience kernel panics resulting from running a version of Mac OS X prior to 10.4.7. Intel Mac users still experiencing the issue can turn off FSAA options and/or run the game in a window. Aspyr notes that the update is a public beta release, cautioning users about the possibility of experiencing problems not present in the previous release.
