Tried playing CIV V last night and almost the entire time thatand I were trying to connect we kept getting disconnected and or my game would hang. Even on single player my game would hang sometimes or the video would have "stutters" or "impurities" with the menu when I was changing menus. So, you'd mouse over "Video Options" and then the other three would have grainy lines through them and such. And that meant either the game was going to crash then did a file verify on local content, 1 file was messed up (even once I had 2 files) and then if that stuttering happened again, I would sometimes try to close the game and it would close successfully but I would file verify and it still had 1 file messed up and re-downloaded it. I completely removed my 301.42 nVidia driver and then safe mode, ccleaner reg fix, re-install driver reboot kinda deal. The driver then seemed to respond better which was good and the game stayed running longer but it still had issues.
As I was heading to bed I deleted the entire local content for the game and re-downloaded the entire thing. Anything else anyone can tell us to try as to why it was stuttering at points and kept dropping that file? Or why we kept getting disconnected every few turns? Our internets on both ends seemed decent so we don't suspect that currently. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
