Can't get to top floor!

Recommended Posts

I searched on this topic and got nothing.Here's the problem: when I move troops into a building, the "which floor" box appears only intermittently, seemingly at random. This is incredibly frustrating. It could be a problem with the ATI card on my new imac. I found the multimedia update which is supposed to fix the bug but for some mysterious reason it won't install on my 9.0.1 imac. HELP!

I assume that you're using the v. 1.05 patch (though I'm not familiar with this issue) ? These are definitely buildings with a second floor correct (large stone and large wood) ?

I'm not sure what video update is appropriate for your iMac. Here's one (for Rage 128s), but it is a bit dated:

Apple's ATI Driver Update:


This is the update from ATI (though it is geared towards expansion cards rather than built-in video):

ATI Universal Installer 4.20 (which is a bit newer than the Apple posted drivers):


Read the note about detection of video:


OS 9.0.4 apparently has the latest ATI drivers available. A new set for the Rage 128s will be released shortly that deals with some text issues in CM (and should be available on Apple's site).

There's an update from Apple to get to OS 9.0.4, but it doesn't mention upgrading from OS 9.0.1 specifically. So you may want to try the Software Update control panel method first:

OS 9.0.4 Update (which can also be downloaded with the Software Update control panel):


If you have an iMac DV you'll also need to download the Apple DVD Player 2.2 (which should have nothing to do with CM).

Apple DVD Player 2.2:

I had the same problem when i first started playing CM. I have one of the earlier imacs. I found if i changed the view to 5, the top down view, and click and hold down on the mouse button i can get a stable floor level selection window. screen 1 and 2 will also work but not as well.
