BIG REMINDER: GalCiv III requires 64-bit

Published on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 By Brad Wardell In Galactic Civilizations III

The original Galactic Civilizations for OS/2 was somewhat notable in that it was the first commercial 32-bit game.  

While there are some games that offer 64-bit editions, most of them also include a 32-bit version.  In the case of GalCiv III, it is natively 64-bit. That means no 32-bit version.  You must have a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (most people these days do but not everyone).

So before you join up, make sure you actually are running a 64-bit version of Windows.
