Sims 3 disc wont read mac

I was afraid I was going to have to move all my save files to the other partition of the harddrive that I have Snow Leopard saved on, or get an old MBP and use it as my gaming computer. The instructions worked perfectly. Just installed the game via origin but it goes into full screen mode and goes black. Please please help! It should, because it just lets the game launch, and then you can choose which pack to use. Anything I can do to help that? I just got a new iMac and nothing I tried from forums worked. Your fix does work and fingers crossed it is better than ever!

Thank you so much!

Hi Rob, your post has given me hope. With the latest version of High Sierra Sims 3 will not longer work even with this amended code. Are there any other ideas you have as otherwise I may have to buy a new laptop! My kids moved on to Sims 4, despite not liking it at first. Email Address. Yes, please. The Robservatory Robservations on everything…. Rob Griffiths. Feb 4 ' After much scouring of the internet, I found the solution and tweeted about it: My daughter's fave game, Sims 3, was getting stuck on the loading screen in Sierra.

In that menu, select Show Package Contents. A new window opens with only one item: the folder Contents Within that folder there is a file info. Use that program to open the file. Note: not the one just above it with CedegaGameDir! The next line should end The next time you start the game, it should begin straight away with the EA and Maxis logos. Many thanks :.

A detailed description of what is occurring: I keep getting this error message after launching the game. I do have that disk in. I am really upset, because I bought this game in June and I have only played it a few times. The disk is not scratched, I keep it in the hard case it came in. I do not leave the disk in my laptop, I eject it after I have finished saving and quitting the game. I have done everything right, and I still am not able to play my game in my free time. A detailed description of any troubleshooting you have already attempted: I downloaded Origins, and tried to launch the game from there, but that didn't work.

I updated the game it has automatic updates. I uninstalled and redownloaded Origins.
