  1. Just got this game and after install im having massive problems

    DX11exe crashes to desktop, tried compatibilty options, no joy.

    DX9exe runs the game but when you play it keeps prompting""Unable to load texture [CivSymbolWhite32_DLC_D.dds]". You can hit ok and alt-tab back into the game but it does this every turn. can anyone help?

    First I would make sure all your drivers, especially video drivers, are up to date.
    If that doesn't help try uninstalling it and re-installing it.

    Solution for the DX9 problem:

    Visit http://forums.2kgames.com/showthread.php?124306-Unable-to-load-texture-CivSymbolWhite32_DLC_D-dds

    or 4 short:

    Edit Babylon.Civ5Pkg with an EDITOR (do not save as .txt File!)

    Found: Your_PATH_to\Sid Meier's Civilization V GotY\assets\DLC\DLC_Deluxe\Babylon.Civ5Pkg

    In the File scroll to the END and look for: </Civ5Package>
    Insert just above this line the following:
    <Paks>
    <File>BabylonianModels.fpk</File>
    <File>BabylonianNebuchadnezzarTextures.fpk</File>
    </Paks>

    Save the File and ur good to go! (This works with DX10/11 too - if u have the missing Texture Error)

    Just 2 be sure ... the end of your edited file have to look like this:

    <VisEffectModelDefines>Civ5ArtDefines_VisEffectModels_DLC_Deluxe.xml</VisEffectModelDefines>
    <Paks>
    <File>BabylonianModels.fpk</File>
    <File>BabylonianNebuchadnezzarTextures.fpk</File>
    </Paks>
    </Civ5Package>

    AND MAKE A BACKUP OF THE FILE FIRST!

    Good luck, M@x

    What kind of Editor I have to use?
    Notepad is not working.

    Hello, I followed the instructions, added the missing lines but it is still not working.

    The only thing I might have done differently is that I edited the file with notepad. But I didnt save as .txt, its still .CIV5PKG.

    Im uploading a pic showing what I added

    Please tell me what I did wrong.
