What works

Installation seems fine, so long as you wait for the cd popup to come before you hit "Retry" in the missing CD window.

What does not

Does not load conquests or play-the-world and exits with a "font error"

Loads Civ III and plays intro movie with sound.  However, text is not correctly placed and only some of the openning options work.  Quick-game opens but is unplayable.  Everything else will take you one or two menus and then exit silently.

Additional Comments

Seems pretty close... Got further into the app with the Civ iii no-cd hack but not with the conquests or PtW hacks.
