The error suggests it's a DirectX crash, but it is not enough to update graphics drivers or confirm that DirectX is up to date. The breakthrough moment came for me when I found this Windows this Windows post explaining the error. The important part is: Andre.Ziegler replied on July 12, 2010 Bug Check 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR This indicates that an ...

You have to press any technological or territorial advantage you can get. If your continent is rich in iron and your friend's continent is not, you can dominate the seas with frigates and try taking some coastal cities to contain him through the Renaissance and Industrial eras. If you don't have iron, build up Privateers and coastal ranged units to repeal ...

You've got just a couple of options, generally. One is war. War, war, war. Crush your neighbors. Hopefully you're not so far behind the AI that you can't overtake them.

There's also a button on the unit command panel that looks like a bunch of hexes with an arrow overlaid, this will do the same thing.

The AI in Civ5 does some really weird things, but they can generally be explained by saying "you're winning, and the AI doesn't want to speed that process up."

The right answer to your question is: Conquer the holy city and annex it. That must be done. Then send in an inquisitor. This will destroy the holy city's pressure. It won't come back. How do I know this? I've done this many times. I always do this. If you leave it as a puppet, it won't work. I like to have almost all the cities at the end of the ...
