I did read but it doesnt say you will get the update but just a hope so i didnt believe it. I wrote my post before i tried though. Now when i got free key for civ4 i can confirm 2KSupport is fast and trustworthy. Only hard thing left to do is to install those GB of civ again. I hope it will work then.

or u just read:
The patch that replaces GameSpy with Steamworks for multiplayer functionality is now available via Steam. The game functions identically to the previous GameSpy version with the exception that the “Direct IP” option has been removed as it is no longer supported. Save game data should not be negatively affected. If you own a physical disc version of Civilization IV and are interested in receiving this multiplayer update, please submit a support request.

What happened to being able to play over the internet on the retail version of Civ 4? I see now that Gamespy shut down on May 31 but my friends and i have certainly been able to play it up until now, which now it wont let us log in. After doing some research it says you can get a patch to allow the retail version on steam but there is no simple way doing that it seems...

It's not Steam's fault you flock of foolish geese. It's 2K/Firaxis' fault. Not Valve's.
