      1) Have you opened any city properties or attacked any cities in any game with your present graphic card installed before this problem started? If not go
      Message 2 of 3 , May 31, 1999
        1) Have you opened "any" city properties or attacked any cities in any game "with
        your present graphic card installed" before this problem started? If not go to
        part "2" of this letter. If so, you should simply have the file resent to you &
        if it is still bad have the previous player replay it.

        2) If your answer to the previous question was no, then this sounds like the
        32bit graphic card to 16 bit ED game computability problem. As soon as you open
        up the properties of a city (or after attacking it) the game freezes up or gives
        you an DLL ("16 bit" Dynamic Link Library file) error. If anybody gets the
        following "DIBENG.DLL" error message, contact me as I can tell you what to do to
        fix it even without having to replace any hardware:
